This is an easy pancake recipe that only takes 5 ingredients to make! These basic pancakes are simple to make and come out light and fluffy any time! Add blueberries, chocolate chips, bananas, or any of your favorite add-ins.
If I had it my way, I would start every morning with something savory. Something warming and salty and usually oozing with egg yolk. If my husband had it his way, we would eat pancakes every morning. And they would absolutely be filled with chocolate chips and oozing with butter and syrup.
