Chocolate-chip buttermilk pancake- Eggs benedict


Chocolate-chip buttermilk pancake- Eggs Benedict

Tried something new for Valentine breakfast, made chocolate chips buttermilk pancakes and decided to go a step further and use them as the basis for an egg benedict...... I love chocolate..... i loveeee pancakes and this buttermilk pancake recipe is the ULTIMATE. Light fluffy pancakes with melted chocolate surprises in each bite.... OMGGGGG. 

Chocolate chip buttermilk pancake Ingredients (makes 8 pancakes)
The buttermilk recipe is pretty basic..... very easy and should be a breeze for anyone with a fry-pan and skillet :)
1 cup of all purpose flour
1 egg
1 tbsp of sugar (i added a little bit more because i like it sweeter)
1 cup of buttermilk
2 tbsp of unsalted melted butter
1/4-1/2 cup of milk chocolate chips( you can use semi sweet)
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/4 tsp of baking soda
1/3 tsp of vanilla extract

  • In a bowl mix the egg, buttermilk, butter and vanilla
    In a bigger bowl mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar and salt

  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix gently with a wooden spoon
    Do not over-mix..... lumps are good for fluffy pancakes
    Add in the chocolate chips

  • In a pan over medium heat put in half a tbsp of butter, when it melts, swirl it around the pan
    Pour in 1 cooking spoon full of batter.
    When the top starts to show little bubbles and you can see the bottom browning should take about 3 minutes, flip to the other side

  • In a pre-heated oven, store the pancakes in an oven proof dish while you make the other batches.... its best served hot trust me...
    Served topped with butter or your favorite syrup
    Or like me you can try your had at Eggs Benedict using my recipe here.. replace the english muffin with 2/3 pancakes layered on each other
