I want you fat


What an awesome way to start the morning.

Get those metal forks, and press them into this fluffy chocolate filled mini cake.

A big fat chocolate chip pancake.

We don’t want to layer; we just want a warm yummy & chubby pancake that’s oh so cute.

These pancakes are extremely satisfying to dig into, and those chocolate chips give the whole thing a beautiful balance. The kids will enjoy these in the morning.



-1 cup all-purpose flour

-1 tablespoon baking powder

-3 tablespoons sugar

-1/2 teaspoon salt

-1 egg

-1 cup milk

-2 tablespoons unsalted butter, butter

-1/2 cup chocolate chips

Place a pan on top of medium heat.

Sift together the dry ingredients in a big bowl and set aside. Mix the eggs with the milk and butter. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix using a whisk until combined. Add the chocolate chips and mix to combine.

Now it took me a while to ace the cooking method of these, flip them to early, and you get a shower of pancake mixture lava drowning the pan. Flip them to late, they’re burned and have turned black!

So to do this, you need to use a mold to get the thickness of this pancake. I use a metal circle mold used for food decorating. You know, the ones they use when they want rice to be in a neat circle and so. You have to oil and flour those molds after each pancake is made (Unless you have a lot of them, I only have two). So when one is cooking, wash the one that was previously used and oil and flour it. 

Brush the pan with oil when ready to start and place the mold in the saucepan, and drizzle in the batter, don’t fill it too much, as they tend to expand. Leave a little bit empty space on the top. Cook for about 7 minutes on each side.

To flip the pancake, get a spatula and place it on the bottom and lift the pancake, then place it in your other hand (This hand should have oven gloves on as it will be hot!) lift the sauce pan and place it on top of the other side (To be cooked) make sure you press well, and flip! Return it to the heat and cook until this side is cooked as well. Release the sides using a knife, place in a plate, drizzle with some maple syrup and dig in!
