When I was young, my family always took car vacations. We left home very early in the morning and when it was time for breakfast, Dad would stop at a pancake house along the highway. We were allowed to order whatever we wanted, with the condition that we had to finish whatever was on our plate. My brothers and I would order chocolate chip pancakes. They were bigger than our heads but we never left a single bite.
My children love pancakes and would eat them any time of the day. If I am ever at a loss for meal ideas, breakfast is always my default and pancakes are always at the top of the list.
Even before being gluten free, I made my pancakes from scratch. When money was tight, it was cheaper to use what I had in my pantry and we found that we liked the taste better. We have added chocolate chips, berries and pecans to the batter and they are all delicious.
Chocolate Chip pancakes are perfect for rainy or sunny days, happy or sad days. We have never found a day when pancakes didn’t make everyone just a little bit happier.
Pancakes are also a traditional Fat Tuesday food because they use up ingredients that were given up during Lent.
