Let me begin by saying, I have nothing against milk. In fact, I usually do have a small thing of milk in my fridge. I like to use milk for cooking purposes, and rarely drink it or eat it otherwise. For this reason, I was out of milk this morning.
I had the time (and a craving) for the chocolate chip pancakes my mom used to make me in elementary school. So I looked around, and improvised!
Wouldn’t be the first time I’ve been out of something and had to get creative! So here is the successful recipe for the no milk chocolate chip pancake from www.cooks.com
- 2 cups flour
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 2-3 large eggs
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 cups water
- 1 tsp vanilla
Step 1) Beat Your Eggs and Mix your Dry ingredients and Wet Ingredients in Separate Bowls
Step 2) Combine all of your ingredients to make the batter, stir until smooth
Step 3) Grease a small round pan with oil, butter, or PAM and turn on medium low
Step 4) Pour the batter into the pan so it just covers the surface
Step 5) Keep the heat on low to medium low and keep an eye on it so it doesn’t start “boiling” it should be kept on low heat, and when you start to see the edges turning brown, the batter firming up, and little small bubbles forming/popping, the pancake is ready to flip
Step 6) Flip and let it cook on the other side for about 2-3 minutes (not as long as the first side)
Step 7) Slide pancake onto a plate and top with chocolate chips. After the chips melt, spread them over the pancake for delicious chocolate in every bite!
Agh, I am hungry again now!
