Chocolate chip buttermilk pancakes make breakfast luxurious! Warm, fluffy, chocolaty pancakes that simply melt in your mouth and help you ease into the day.
To say that the past few weeks have been crazy around the Comfortably Domestic house would be a gross understatement. I’m not even going to add up the amount of hours that were dedicated to soccer outside of school hours, but just know that soccer was allotted more significantly more time than such frivolous pursuits as sleep and eating.
I can say that the hours spent driving and cheering on the sidelines of many a 100 yd. x 60 yd. patch of grass were not in vain. Our Boys Varsity won the Silver Division of the Michigan State Home School Championships last weekend!
Woo-hoo! Go Bulldogs! I have to say that the games were a joy to watch. The boys played with such heart and character, that I couldn’t be prouder of them.
Of course, the weeks of all-soccer-all-the-time preparations for the state tournament eventually take their toll. We happily woke up in our own beds on Monday morning and didn’t rush to do anything at all. Not a thing. Rushing about was decidedly not not on the agenda.
We actually wrote Be Lazy on the calendar. True story.
Come Monday morning, we slept in an hour later than we usually do on a school day. When we did roll out of bed, we transferred our pajama-clad-selves to the couch, had a good family snuggle under a blanket, and read until we felt like eating breakfast.
Which was really more like lunch time, but worth the wait nonetheless. I peeled myself off the couch just long enough to whip up a variation of our favorite pancakes, only this time I loaded them up with miniature chocolate chips.We were exhausted.
We totally deserved the fluffy goodness of chocolate chip buttermilk pancakes!
To fully express how very lazy I was feeling, you should probably know that although I made the chocolate chip buttermilk pancakes, I didn’t fry any bacon to go with them.
*gasp* I know!
Absent pork products aside, chocolate chip buttermilk pancakes are so light, fluffy, and chocolaty in their own right that we really didn’t miss the bacon at all. A short stack of these melt-in-your-mouth pancakes beautifully orchestrated just the sort of luxuriously slow morning that we needed.
Here’s the chocolate chip buttermilk pancakes recipe. Eat them slowly, and enjoy.
