    I don't know why previous commenters are saying that this batter is thin and runny. Other than adding a tbsp of baking powder (as I prefer fluffy pancakes) and an extra tbsp of sugar since I didn't have chocolate chips on hand, I followed the recipe to the letter and the batter was the perfect thickness for scooping and pouring. I lowered the heat on my frying pan to medium low and these pancakes cooked up fluffy and perfect very quickly (2-3 minutes on the first side; 1 minute after flipping). My kids loved them, comparing them to having chocolate cake for breakfast. I gave them 4 stars only because I had to add the baking powder. I will definitely make these again.  -  03 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Dense, thin and took forever to cook. Also, they did not taste chocolately at all.  -  11 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    OMGosh! This pancake was the best I ever had! I made no alterations and the recipe is perfect! The pancakes were light and fluffy, it had the right amount of sweetness and the chocolate chips just made them even more daughter (8) said they tasted like brownies! I served with raspberry sauce, blackberries and confectioner sugar! The BEST! This is a keeper. THX  -  07 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
