Breakfast Pancakes

Homemade Pancake Recipe

This Pancake recipe has got to be one of the most asked for breakfast items in our house. My sons always prefer them with chocolate chips, and we like them with blueberries. We've even been known to have them for dinner! I make these pancakes when ever we have company, and they never leave without taking the recipe with them. Often I will add chocolate chips (for the kids- even the adult ones!) or blueberries as the pancakes cook.
