Favorite Pancakes!

So, I love warm pancakes on any morning.  It starts the day off on a sweet note every time I make them, so this is my go-to recipe right now.  That may change in a few months when I make a few changes to it or come across the next great pancake recipe.  However, I dare you to try these!  You'll never eat anything else again!

I'll provide the link to the original recipe (Paula Deen), but I've altered it quite a bit, so I'll provide the current version below!

Chocolate Chip Pancakes (picture shows them w/o choc. chips)

1 1/4 cups White Whole Wheat Flour (King Arthur makes my favorite variety, but you can use All-Purpose)
3 tbls. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
2 eggs, separated
3 tbls. butter, melted (plus 4 tbls. divided for cooking)
1/2 cup mini semi-sweet morsels


Preheat griddle to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  In another small bowl, combine milk, egg yolks, and 3 tablespoons melted butter; add to flour mixture, whisking until smooth.

This next step is optional, but it does make for some light and fluffy pancakes if you're willing to take the extra step to whip the egg whites.  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 1 tablespoon 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.

BTW - I always double this recipe and store any leftovers in the fridge or freezer for an easy breakfast later in the week!   :)

Still don't see any recipes, Ladies!  ;)
