Pancake Series: #4 Chocolate Chip & Strawberry Pancakes
For these pancakes, I used my old reliable recipe. I think it suits the ingredients best as I want a cakey and tender texture. I prefer using dark chocolate chips because they are less sweet and I serve them with honey butter which I make from scratch. It’s just softened butter and honey whipped together, no big deal. These pancakes can stand alone and I think the choice of strawberries is also a concern because you don’t want them too ripe or they will be soggy when exposed to the heat of the pan. Whoever tries this recipe will appreciate the fact they’re simply good even without adding butter and syrup.
