American Chocolate Chip Pancakes

What do you do on a Sunday evening when you have finished your dinner, all the shops are shut but you want something else to eat? In our house it means that I bake and on this particular day I had a craving (for no reason) for pancakes. Having never made them before I was a bit worried, I have never been very successful at pancakes and my husband usually takes the lead, however as I decided to make thicker American-Style pancakes I was left to my own devices this time, here is my attempt at American Chocolate Chip Pancakes:


  • 135g of Plain Flour
  • 1 tsp of Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp of Salt
  • 2 tbsp of Sugar
  • 130ml of Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tbsp of Melted Butter
  • 50g of Chocolate Chips
  • Butter for Cooking
  • Golden Syrup to drizzle over the top

  1. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar into a large bowl
  2. In a jug, lightly whisk together the milk and egg, then whisk in the melted butter
  3. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture, using a fork, beat until you have a smooth batter. Any lumps will soon disappear with a little mixing
  4. Finally add the chocolate chips and stir throughout the batter
  5. Let the batter stand for a few minutes
  6. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter. When it’s melted, add a ladle of batter It will seem very thick but this is how it should be
  7. Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has risen to about 1cm thick
  8. Repeat until all the batter is used
  9. Then stack onto 2 plates (or one!) and drizzle the golden syrup over the top

Note: This recipe made 6 medium sized pancakes

My first few American Chocolate Chip Pancakes left a little to be desired, they weren’t very round and they were a little more cooked on one side, however I started to get the hang out of it and the last few (that you can see in the picture) tasted just as I expected so I was really pleased with the outcome. Now I know I can make them, I probably will more often!
