You must all know by now how much I love pancakes for brekkie at the weekends and what can be better than pancakes with chocolate chips?!
(As we are tight budgeting at the moment I actually used chocolate buttons that we had left from Christmas in this recipe instead of chocolate chips and just chopped them a little. It worked really well actually as there was some good sized melted chocolate in there…mmmm)
250g Plain Flour
4 Tbsp caster sugar
2 Tbsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Salt
4 Tbsp Vegetable oil
100g chocolate chips (fridge cold or frozen)
Mix the dry ingredients together and beat the wet ingredients together then add the wet to the dry and mix well. Finally add the chocolate chips and give a stir. Adding cold chocolate chips helps the chocolate to stay together more and melt in a gooey splodge rather than mixing in.
Spray a large frying pan with low calorie spray and spoon the mixture in dollops into the pan. Cook for about a minute on the first side and 30 seconds on the other side – wait until the pancake bubbles on top and is firm enough to flip before turning over. The pancake should be golden brown on both sides.
Serve immediately. You can drizzle honey on these or serve them with chopped banana but they are delicious just on their own.
