And if you've never made pancakes from scratch, the simplicity of this recipe and basic ingredients will give you diner worthy results.



1 ¾ cups (220g) self-rising flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

3 Tbsp. sugar

Pinch of salt

2 medium eggs

1 ¼ cups (300mL) whole milk

1/3 cup (60g) chocolate chips plus some for garnishing!

Butter (for cooking and spreading on the finished pancakes)

Maple syrup for topping off the pancakes


  1. Add/mix your dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Then, whisk the eggs and milk together in a different bowl. 
  3. Now, pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and gently mix together until everything is combined. 
  4. Next, add in the chocolate chips and fold the batter so everything is dispersed evenly throughout - then, when they are, you'll want to let the batter rest for about 10 minutes. 
  5. Now, heat your griddle - or skillet - on medium heat and evenly grease the surface with a cold stick of butter. 
  6. Once the surface is heated, use a large cookie scooper for smaller rounder pancakes or a ladle for bigger pancakes, and pour the batter onto the griddle/skillet.
  7. Now let the pancakes cook until the first bubbles begin to pop, then flip them over, and cook for another minute or two until they are slightly crispy and golden. 
  8. Then, stack your pancakes on top of one another to keep them warm until they are all cooked. 
  9. Lastly, top your warm pancakes with a few chocolate chips, a slab of butter, and a drizzle of maple syrup.
