Buttermilk Pancakes are our family’s favorite breakfast. We don’t make it too often but every once in a while, my husband would make these on Saturdays for the boys. The boys devour these pancakes. My two year old eats like 5 of them in one seating!
You can make these pancakes plain, but my whole family is addicted to chocolate…. My husband usually make a whole batch and leave a huge stack of the pancakes on a plate and the boys munch on them all day. These are great even without syrup since it’s already sweet with chocolate chips.
Buttermilk Chocolate Chip Pancakes
3 cups all purpose flour
3 tablespoons white sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup butter, melted
semisweet chocolate chips
In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In separate bowl, combine buttermilk, milk, eggs, and butter together. Keep them separate until you're ready to cook.
Heat griddle or skillet to medium high heat. (I usually use cooking spray for cooking pancakes but you can use oil or butter, your choice) Flick water across the surface and if it sizzles, it's ready!
Pour wet mixture to dry mixture and stir with wooden spoon until it's just blended. Do not overstir. Pour ir scoop the batter onto griddle or pan, using about 1/2 cup for each pancake. Sprinkle each pancake with 5-6 chocolate chips. Brown on both sides and serve hot with syrup and your favorite toppings.
I love grilled chicken… They are yummy. They are healthy (usually). I mean, for a girl who is on a diet, this Hawaiian Chicken Skewers were a perfect meal!
Oh it has been a crazy busy day today… and now I finally have time to sit down and update my blog with a brand new recipe! How’s your Monday going so far? I have good news. I started my diet last Monday and today, I weighed myself and found that I have lost 4 lbs!
Good morning! Today is my oldest son’s 6th birthday! Gosh, where did the time go… seriously! I told him that I needs to stop growing so fast to which he replied, “Mommy, I just have to keep going. Next year, I’ll be 7 and the year after that, I’m gonna be 8!” He is super excited about getting older… ha ha Well, someday, he’ll sigh out loud once he hits that 30 mark.
Yay, I did it! I went to the gym this morning! I’ve been walking 5 miles a day starting Monday. And I have already lost 3 lbs! I know the first day, you lose more than usual because of all the water weight that I’m supposed to lose but I’ve been eating really good, counting calories, and exercising 1 1/2 hours. It rained this morning so I went to the gym. It’s so hard to get back into fitness. I used to love doing all the jogging on treadmills and eliptical machines but man, it’s been pretty tough without being able to control my breath as easily as I used to be able to. It’s okay. I just have to continue doing what I’m doing now! Hopefully, I will get back to my normal weight soon!
Yay, it’s Monday! I know… Who says that, right? But I am pretty excited to start a new week. My husband and the boys and I made all these plans for this week and March. We are going to have a family night every Monday and my boys are super excited about it. I am, too! I feel like we’re always too busy to do anything so we’re going to slow down and have fun!
I can’t believe it’s already Thursday… which means… tomorrow is Friday! I feel like this week has gone by so quickly! Probably because of President’s day on Monday. I have been following the Olympic Games. Since I am now Korean American, I have been rooting for both American and Korean teams. I am so glad that both of them are doing well. I was disappointed, though, that Kim Yuna didn’t get the Gold! But she was remarkable and I am so proud of her. Today’s performance was her last one before her retirement. I’m going to miss her.
