I’m done!!! And to celebrate I need pancakes!! It’s dinner time at the moment, and after a day of the sun taunting me saying, go to the beach, go to the beach, I NEED PANCAKES! so this is pretty much a repeat recipe, hardly interesting, and identical to previous posts about pancakes but with chocolate chips added. So without further ado here they are.

Ingredients

  • 1 cups plain flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg yolks
  • 1 egg whites
  • 1 cups milk
  • 1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (but if you’re in a chocolatey mood feel free to add more!)
Method
  1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl
  2. In another bowl whisk together the egg yolks, oil, lemon zest, vanilla, and milk
  3. in another bowl whisk the egg white till foamy (but not to the point where soft peaks form) then fold into the e.g. yolk mixture
  4. Whisk the wet mixture into the dry mixture quickly until just combined, then mix in the chocolate chips.
  5. add oil to a frying pan (just enough that it coats but doesn’t run) and when hot spoon around 1/4 of a cup of the batter (usually one scoop) into the pan. Flip when ready (usually 20- 30 seconds depending on how hot the pan is) and then serve with butter and maple syrup
