Frequently Asked Questions
Switch on the gas and put the nonstick griddle on it. When the pan is hot, sprinkle some water over it. It should dance on the pan.
Now turn the heat to low and pour the batter.
If you are afraid that the batter will stick to the pan, add in a little butter and spread it using a brush and then pour the batter. Make sure you just use a little butter.
It is very necessary that the bottom of the pancake is cooked before we flip it. When you see bubbles forming on the uncooked batter on the top, the pancake is ready to be flipped.
Just slide a spatula under the edge of the pancake and flip it. If the spatula sticks to the batter, let it cook for some time more.
If you have already made the pancakes, and want to keep them warm, covering it with foil is not a good option as they will become limp and lose their deliciously crisp edges.
Instead, you can keep them warm by placing the pancakes on a baking sheet in a 200-degree oven until you’re ready to serve them.
One way is to garnish the pancakes with chocolate chips after pouring the batter in the griddle and another way is to coat the chocolate chips with a little flour (this is incase you are adding the chocolate chips in the batter itself).
In both these ways, your chocolate chips won’t sink at the bottom.
If you are looking for a gluten-free pancake, you can substitute the all-purpose flour with gluten-free flour or make the Pancakes using Oatmeal.
Yes, you can! But keep it only for 24 hours, not more than that.
Don’t over mix the ingredients! Over-mixing can lead to gluten development and that is not required.
So just mix the wet ingredients into dry ingredients and make your Pancakes.
There are many ways to serve these delicious Chocolate Chip Pancakes, Some of them are,
Just add a little maple syrup on top, to keep it simple and old fashioned.
You can even add caramel sauce, nutella, whipped cream, honey or even peanut butter.
If you like to make it more filling, add some of your favourite fruits such as Banana, Strawberries, Blueberries, Kiwi, Mango etc.
You can also sprinkle some granola or chopped Nuts on top for a nice crunch.
Also don’t forget to serve a hot cup of Coffee on the side.
