My twenty inch cast iron grill pan sees service at least once a week (when we’re home, that is) on Saturday mornings as a pancake making workstation.
For at least a decade our family tradition is a fresh batch of these simple breakfast treats.
1 1/3 cups of all purpose flour
3 tablespoons of granulated sugar
1 tablespoon of baking powder
3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 1/2 cups of white milk
1/2 cup chocolate chips
The flour, sugar, and baking powder get mixed together in a medium bowl.
The egg is whisked in a 2 cup measuring cup, then I add the oil, vanilla and milk and mix again.
The wet and dry are combined, mixed lightly, populated with the chocolate chips, and let to sit for about 10 minutes to hydrate.
Batter is poured in 1/4 cup portions onto a hot cast iron grill pan and cooked to desired doneness.
We serve it all up with maple syrup and a hot cup of coffee.
