Chef's Notes

When batter is resting, resist the urge to stir; you want all those nice foamy bubbles to help ensure fluffy pancakes.


  1. I'm a pancake addict and have many recipes. This is one of my favorites. I make it as written except for upping the vanilla and using whole wheat pastry flour. They come out moist and fluffy and have incredible flavor. I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes sweet pancakes.
  2. Love these! There are my 81 yr old mom s favourite! If given the choice she would have these every day served up with homemade applesauce. I ve made the same adjustments as many have already stated; less salt milk with vinegar and whichever chips I have on hand added once batter is on the - Read more ...
  3. These were so good. My husband doesn t like pancakes but he loved these. He even asked for them the next weekend. I didn t have buttermilk so substituted with milk and sour cream. I also took the advice of another reviewer and sprinkled the butterscotch chips on top while frying. Yum!
  4. These pancakes are delicious and I've already made them several times. I used white chocolate chips (didn't have the Scotchies) and one time didn't have buttermilk so did the vinegar and milk substitute. It worked however like the buttermilk one's better. They are my favorite pancakes now and would highly recommend every pancake lover to - Read more ...
  5. Made this for the Grandkids! Only change was I Just added chocolate chips after the batter rested and I was pouring them on the griddle. ( did not have butterscotch chips). They loved them!!! I never got to eat any. Suggest making a double batch.
  6. I did't have buttermilk so used 1 cup yoghurt 2 cups whole milk and used 3 eggs. Then mixed 1/2 c whole wheat flour with 1&1/2 cups all purpose flour cinnamon and other dry ingredients - BUT only a scant tsp salt. Also didn't have butterscotch chips so used mini-choc chips. I doubled the recipe - Read more ...
  7. It did not turn out well at all ran all over the frying pan!!!
  8. I misjudged what I had in the pantry and had to make these with sea salted caramel chips instead of butterscotch. The wife and I both loved them! Thanks for sharing!
  9. Instead of mixing the chips in the batter sprinkle them on the pancakes when you put them on the griddle before you flip them over. I always do that with chips, blueberries, etc. in my pancakes. It comes out much more evenly.
  10. I loved these! I followed the submitters advice and did not stir the batter while it rested. Consequently the majority of the butterscotch chips fell to the bottom of the batter. The last pancake was bursting with the chips while the others had only a few chips. Nonetheless they were still delicious. Next time I - Read more ...
