Chocolate Chip German Pancakes
This recipe was influenced by Lodge Cast Iron and adapted (yet some changes made) from Americas Test Kitchen
  • For the Pancake
  • ½ cup plus 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅔ cup half & half
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips (semi sweet)
  • Butter for greasing
  • For the toppings:
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 3 tbsp chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup blueberries
  • Lemon for squeezing
  • Maple Syrup
  • Powdered sugar (couple tbsp at most)
  1. Preheat your oven to 500 degrees. In a medium bowl first mix your flour, salt and sugar. Then add your eggs, half & half, vanilla extract. Whisk until blended. Add your chocolate chips, mix.
  2. Next grease all skillets that you are using with some butter (make sure they are well greased unless you are using a non-stick pan) add batter (evenly) being sure to scoop/evenly distribute chocolate chips that tend to clump at bottom of batter.
  3. Place in oven for about 13-18 minutes. Start checking at minute 10 if your oven tends to cook quickly.
  4. Remove from oven and immediately loosen pancake edges if slicing/serving. If serving individually for aesthetic purposes, keep in pan and serve that way. Might be a little more cleaning, but looks really pretty!
