Extra Fluffy Pancakes with white chocolate chips #recipe

No one was hungry for supper last night so I decided to make myself some pancakes. And no, not from a box mix, homemade pancakes are super simple and so much better! After a few minutes of pancake cooking, I did manage to lure two family members to the kitchen. They must have smelled pretty good! So, I thought I would share the love.

This is my go-to pancake recipe. I like to stir in different things depending on my mood – in the summer fresh blueberries, strawberries or peaches are so good. In the winter we add a sprinkle of chocolate chips and cinnamon. Using fresh eggs make them even fluffier! What do you like in your pancakes?

Pardon the awful photos, it’s dark by 6pm here in Northwestern PA! Oh how I long for the bright warm days of summer!
