There is nothing overly special or unique about this recipe, but it reminds me of a new tradition my wife and I recently started. Last Christmas, we weren’t able to get together with our parents and brothers due to the pandemic, which was really tough as we’ve always been very close with our families. I think that was the first year we hadn’t spent Christmas day together in almost 10 years. To try and create a bit of holiday cheer, we decided to start our own set of traditions as a newly married couple. Making and then devouring these pancakes was one of the first things we decided on, and it’s something I’m looking forward to this year.

Pancake Extravaganza


  • 1¼ cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla
  • ⅓ cup chocolate chips
Note: This ingredient list and measurement will make around 10 pancakes, I usually double down to make extras though.


Step 1

Grab a large mixing bowl and combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.

Step 2

Start to add the wet ingredients to your bowl and mix until you’ve got a smooth, delicious-looking pancake mix.

Step 3

My favourite step: add chocolate chips. Remember, more is better!

Step 4

Preheat your pan to a medium temperature and lightly spread butter to add some flavour and avoid a sticky mess.

Step 5

Using a ladle or large spoon, pour the pancake mix onto the pan, You can use your own discretion here depending how big you want your pancakes.

Step 6

When you start to see bubbles forming, flip your pancake over and cook for one minute.

Step 7

Rinse and repeat until the batter is gone.

Step 8

Enjoy with fruit, maple syrup or anything else your heart desires.
