On Saturdays we eat pancakes!! Lol! This is totally a rule in my house! It comes from the popular movie, Mean Girls, which is my FAVORITE movie of all time!!! I love the scene when the girls are sitting at the lunch table and say, “ On Wednesdays we wear pink!” Lol! That scene is epic and since pink is my favorite color, I thought it was a fair rule! 😊
When Saturday rolls around, my family already knows what time it is! Yep, pancake time! I try to keep things exciting and will test different pancake recipes! My kids are the best food critics! Anytime I try a new recipe, I always get my kids to test it out. They will let me know very quickly if it’s a Yay or Nay! Lol! Last Saturday, my kids were asking for chocolate at 6am! Yep, 6am Lol!! My kids are EARLY risers! Of course, I didn’t want to give them chocolate candy or anything extremely unhealthy for breakfast so I decided to make these Extra Fluffy Chocolate Chip Pancakes!
When making my pancakes, I’ve mastered the secret to achieve super fluffy pancakes!! And guess what y’all, I’m going to share my secret with you right now! Whenever I combine my wet and dry ingredients, I let the batter sit for at least 5 minutes to allow the baking powder to “activate.” While activating, you can kinda hear little crackles or pops! It reminds me of that sound you hear when pouring milk over Rice Krispies Cereal! Lol! After the batter sits for about 5 minutes, stir the batter again and pour onto your griddle. You will have fluffy pancakes EVERY time!
These Extra Fluffy Chocolate Chip Pancakes turned out great! I didn’t even need syrup….buuuuut since I felt a little fancy, I wanted to top this fluffy stack with a decadent, peanut butter drizzle! OMG, there are no words to explain what happened when I took a bite! They were sooo good!! My kids devoured them! I had a couple of pancakes left, so I saved them for the next day. They were just as good! Go ahead and give them a try!
