Other than enjoying the fluffy pancakes with butter and syrup, you can also add more toppings to bring these pancakes to a new level.

  • FRUIT– Top with your choice of fruit such as raspberries, blackberries, bananas, and strawberries.
  • JAM– Spread some flavored jam over the pancakes.
  • WHIPPED CREAM– Whipped cream is a MUST!

When making these homemade chocolate chip pancakes double or even triple the recipe to freeze some for later! These freeze great and are perfect for busy mornings.

  • FREEZE– Cook the pancakes according to instructions and allow the pancakes to cool. Once cool, transfer the pancakes to a freezer bag and freeze for up to 2 months.

Can I make this pancake batter ahead of time?

Yes, this pancake batter can be made ahead of time! Store the batter in THIS pancake dispenser and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.

What if my batter is too thick?

If the pancake batter feels too thick then add more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time. The batter should be slightly lumpy and should pour easily.

What if my batter is too runny?

If the batter is runny then you may have added too much liquid so add in a bit of flour slowly until you get a perfect consistency.

How do I know when my pancakes are ready to flip?

When the pancakes are ready to flip, the pancakes will start to bubble.

How do I reheat the pancakes?

Reheat the pancakes in the microwave, oven, or toaster oven until warmed.

What kind of chocolate chips do I use?

You can use milk chocolate chip morsels, dark chocolate chips, and we also love using mini morsels!
