What better way to satisfy your sweet tooth than combining breakfast foods with dessert? It is just the best the best of both worlds. Buzzfeed recently featured three amazing recipes from the cookbook, Breakfast for Dinner. Check out how to make my favorite, mint chocolate chip pancakes, after the jump!
Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Makes 12 pancakes (3 to 4 servings)
Total time: 30 minutes
1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 large egg
2 tablespoons butter, melted
and cooled to lukewarm,
plus more for cooking
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pure mint extract
3 to 4 drops green food coloring (optional)
3/4 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips, plus more for topping
Whipped cream, for serving
Vanilla ice cream, for serving
Store-bought sauce is fine, for serving
1. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a bowl.
2. Whisk together buttermilk, egg, butter, extracts, and food coloring (if using) in a small bowl. Add to dry ingredients and stir until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.
3. Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add 1/2 tablespoon butter; it should sizzle and melt almost immediately. Ladle 1/4 cup of pancake batter into skillet for each pancake, taking care not to let the pancakes run together. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until bottom is golden brown and edges begin to bubble, then carefully flip and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more. Transfer to plates. Repeat with remaining batter.
4. Serve warm with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, hot fudge sauce, and more chocolate chips, if desired.
This recipe sounds amazing…definitely something to try out with friends for a low-key brunch at the apartment or home!
