Chocolate Chip Pancakes? Is That Even Legal?

Leave it to Paula Deen to make something that was already delicious even BETTER. While I wouldn’t make these every day, perhaps this Chocolate Chip Pancake recipe can be reserved for a special occasion.

Chocolate Chip Pancake


* 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
* 3 tablespoons sugar
* 2 teaspoons baking powder
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1 cup milk
* 2 large eggs, separated
* 3 tablespoons butter, melted plus 4 tablespoons, divided
* 1/2 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate morsels
* Cinnamon Cream, recipe follows
* Maple syrup, for serving

Cinnamon Cream:

How To Make Chocolate Chip Pancakes

  • Preheat griddle to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a small bowl, combine milk, egg yolks, and 3 tablespoons melted butter; add to flour mixture, whisking until smooth.
  • In a small bowl, beat egg whites at medium-high speed with an electric mixer until stiff. Gently fold into batter. Gently fold in chocolate morsels.
  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter on hot griddle. Ladle about 1/4-cup batter for each pancake onto hot griddle. Cook pancakes for 2 to 3 minutes, or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Turn and cook the other side. Repeat procedure with remaining 2 tablespoons butter and remaining batter.

For the Cinnamon Cream:

  • In a medium bowl, beat cream at medium-high speed with an electric mixer until thickened. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar and cinnamon, beating until stuff peaks form. Cover and chill.
  • Serve pancakes with Cinnamon Cream and maple syrup.
