Many years ago, I was in the car with my mom when she got pulled over for speeding.
PO: License and registration, ma’am.
I thought of this story yesterday as I realized my Gilt City Coupon for STK Burger had expired. I wrote to Gilt City to tell them I hadn’t used it in time and please can I have an extension? No excuse. No BS story as to why I hadn’t used it. I just didn’t and can you help me please. And in less than an hour the Gilt fairies wrote me back that they were extending my coupon
So what does this have to do with my post today? Not much, except no excuses. You want to have pancakes for dinner, have em. You want to add lots of chocolate chips, do it. You want to drown them in Aunt Jemimi, go for it. You need no excuses today, it’s Friday. Enjoy it.
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups buttermilk ( i used fat-free lactaid milk and it’s fine!)
4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
½ teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2- 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips (depending on how chippy you feel)
oil or cooking spray (for cooking)Step 1: In a large bowl beat eggs. Add milk, butter and vanilla and mix well. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well until mostly smooth. Fold in chocolate chips and let batter set for a few minutes.
Step 2: Heat griddle or pan over medium heat. Add a teaspoon of oil to the pan or spray with cooking spray. You can test to see if the pan is hot enough by adding a few drops of water, when the drops start to dance its hot enough.
Step 3: Pour 2 Tablespoons of batter onto the griddle. Cook on the first side until bubbles that form start to pop. You can also gently lift up the pancake to make sure the bottom is not overcooking, if it is the pan may be too hot and you will need to adjust the heat. Flip the pancake over with a spatula and cook until golden brown. Repeat until all the batter is gone. Let cooked pancakes rest on a heat proof plate in a 200 degree F oven until ready to serve.
