Friday mornings are all about pancakes. My daughter says this is the best day of the week.
I haven’t been able to find buttermilk here in the UAE but Al Marai’s Laban is a very good substitute and actually I prefer the taste of the tangy, thick and rich laban over buttermilk.
This recipe is from Joy The Baker’s blog. Have you ever visited her blog? Everything I have seen so far is delicious!
Here is the recipe adapted from her Milk Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Pancakes
2 cups of flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups of Al Marai Laban (I used full fat laban or you can substitute with 2 cups of yogurt)
4 tablespoons of melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
¾ cup of chocolate chips
Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to a medium-sized bowl. Mix well.
Add the eggs, laban, melted butter, and vanilla. Whisk it all together.
Add the chocolate chips and gently mix into the batter.
Over a medium heat, in a lightly buttered pan, pour in ¼ cup of the batter. Cook until the top of the pancake forms small bubbles on the surface. Turn the pancake over and cook until the bottom gets to be a nice golden brown color (about a minute).
Repeat until you use up all of the batter. Place the cooked pancakes onto a platter and place in a warm oven until ready to serve. Enjoy!
