Homemade Chocolate Chip Pancakes
I grew up not liking pancakes. I was the only one in my family who didn’t like them. My mom makes “killer” pancakes so others claim, but I always thought they were gross. She used Aunt Jemima pancake mix and doctored it up. Don’t ask me what she did, because I really have no clue. I just know I never liked them! 🙂
Alison was my college Cross Country and Track teammate, roommate and then bridesmaid. Her family lived close to the University (of Toledo) unlike mine which were 5 hours away. I occasionally would go to her house for breakfast on weekend mornings when we were not racing. Her mom would make pancakes. Pancakes that were soooo good! I always looked forward to Mrs. Tittle making them! Of course I got the recipe before I graduated so I could make them for Lover Boy.
After Little Finch was born my mom came down for a couple of months once I went back to work. We made these pancakes waaay too many times while she was here. She LOVED them and took the recipe home!
Every time I make these (and it’s been 8 years now) I feel compelled to text or Facebook message Alison and tell her that I’ve just made her mom’s pancakes. Weird, I know. But I think they taste better remembering my good friend and her awesome family! 🙂
