Chocolate Chip Pancakes: From Scratch to Semi-Homemade

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day but who wants to slave over a stove first thing in the morning. Below are two versions of the same recipe. One is from scratch and the other is semi-homemade. 

From Scratch:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1½ teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
1 cup milk (substitute buttermilk for richer pancakes)
3 eggs
1 cup chocolate chips
Add a splash of vanilla

Directions:
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
Add milk to dry ingredients and mix until large lumps are gone.
Beat eggs into mixture and beat just long enough to evenly distribute them throughout.
Add chocolate chips and mix until well-distributed.
Allow mix to rest for 4 to 5 minutes.
While the mix is resting, start heating a pan’ at medium to medium-high heat. Add a small amount of oil to pan.
Sprinkle water on the pan to test. When water sizzles away quickly, bring temperature down to medium low.
Pour 1/4 cup of mix into the skillet, making sure to leave space in between each—they will spread.
Flip when bubbles have stopped and bottom of pancake is golden brown.
Allow to cook until both sides are golden brown.
Place on a plate and let cool for 1 minute.
Serve with syrup and whipped cream
