Chocolate chips banana pancakes.

Sunday morning!! Pancakes!!! Yummy. We love to have a big breakfast-brunch on the week end and therefore pancakes are always requested.

Throughout the years, I have always been in search for the perfect, delicious, fly off the plate pancakes.  Finally I found what I was looking for. As a result once those wonderfully tasty and hot pancakes were on our plate, we could not stop eating them.

The below recipe is an adaptation from Tyler Florence latest book: “Tyler Florence Family Meal”.

Beat the eggs and buttermilk well before incorporating the flour mixture. Due to the baking powder and soda you do not want to overmix. I do however let it rest for a few minutes before starting to cook them.

An option that I have learned and love to share with all of you: You can add the mini chocolate chips to the batter while on the griddle. This will rather spread them better on each pancakes versus the last one having all the fun.

Absolutely love his cooking style and how easy each recipes is that he prepares as a result I have been a fan of his cooking since the purchase of his first cook book in 2003.

Enjoy a wonderful lazy Sunday
