Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Let’s play pretend for a moment. Let’s pretend that the world is a much smaller place, and I can ask you over for an old-fashioned sleepover party on a Saturday night and, despite you being wherever in the world you are and me being in Paris, you can accept and bring over a big bottle of wine and a DVD of Love Actually. Single Cup or One Cup Coffee Brewers
Single Cup Coffee Brewers are very simple to use and are ideal for individuals living alone.The best single cup coffee brewers are designed to brew one cup at a time without any clutter or hassle.The main reason for people going after these is the new machines provide you with the ultimate cup of perfectly brewed coffee every single time you make it.One cup coffee makers are available on the market in three different types K-cups and T-disc brewers. You can get more information about GREAT COFFEE BREWERS through this website Greatcoffeebrewers.com

Let’s pretend we’ve played board games all night with a few of our better friends and gossiped about boys and had lots and lots of wine and probably cheese and bread, and we’ve woken up late the next morning, groggy but without hangovers. This is what I would make for us to eat for breakfast while we were drinking coffee of the best quality as the coffee from Corporate Coffee Systems online.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Adapted from Bon Appétit.

Makes about 4 servings.

3 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips


In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, butter, and milk. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt all in one addition and mix with the whisk for about 7 turns of the bowl. Add the chocolate and whisk for about three turns, until the batter is just starting to look uniform but still has lumps. Do not over-mix.

Butter or oil a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Drop 1/4 cup rounds onto the hot skillet for small pancakes, as pictured, or 3/4 cup of batter for large pancakes. Cook until small bubbles start to break the surface of the batter, then flip the pancakes and cook for another minute or so. Serve immediately, or keep warm in a slow oven for up to 15 minutes.

    Hi Diane,

    So as a fellow expat, I stumbled upon your blog during my continuing search to perfect my American pancake recipe in France, and it seems you’ve mastered it! I was just wondering which ingredients you use (i.e. the flour and baking powder)? I think the flour here is too light, and I really need to acquire a measuring cup set since I just can’t adapt to metric when it comes to baking. Thanks for your help, and your blog is absolutely fabulous!


    • Hi David,

      You’re right, the “regular” flour that you get in regular grocery stores in France is a little too light. I’ve been writing my recipes for American ingredients, but maybe I should translate to French ingredients too! The closest I’ve found to American all-purpose flour is Type 65 flour, which you can find in some markets and health food stores. For baking powder, I use Alsa brand levure chimique, which you can sub for American baking powder one-to-one.

      I recommend taking a look at David Lebovitz’s blog as well, as he is the authority on expat food adaptation in France: http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2006/02/american-baking/

    Odd that this is a delicacy to me, instead of plainly delectable comfort food.

    The website layout is pretty, very pretty!
