Sour Cream Mini Chip Pancakes are fluffy and light with just the right amount of chocolate flavor. Start the day with pancakes and you know it’s going to be a great day!
This sour cream-chocolate chip pancake recipe from Lisa Yockelson’s ChocolateChocolate Cookbook produces phenomenally rich, sweet, and decadent pancakes. To be fair, they really should be considered dessert. But since pancakes are a breakfast food, we get a pass eating them for breakfast.
Thankfully it makes a large batch. Everyone will be back for seconds. I like to serve them with some nice and salty sausage patties or bacon.
A combination of sour cream and light cream makes for a super decadent and rich pancake batter. The sour cream gives the pancakes a little tang to cut the sweetness some.
This recipe takes more time and effort than making pancakes from a boxed mix, but the fresh taste is well worth it. These pancakes are phenomenal.
