OOPS I started eating them before I took the picture! But oh so GOOD!

1 & 1/4 Cup Flour
1 TBS Sugar
3 TBS Baking Powder
1/2 TSP Salt
1 Cup Milk
1 Egg
1 TSP Vanilla
Chocolate Chips
2 TBS Oil
Oil for frying
Pancake Syrup & or Chocolate Syrup, I used both
Stir all the dry ingredients except Chocolate Chips together, Now stir all the wet together beat with a fork to beat that egg. Add all the wet to the dry & whisk well. Place enough oil in a large frying pan to fry your pancakes, I make sure the bottom is covered with a little extra for good frying. You do NOT want to deep fry these! Heat the pan so you can feel the heat when you hold your hand an inch over the oil. Drop batter by heaping tablespoon allow 2 tablespoon per pancake. Sprinkle the to with the chocolate chips. Let each cake fry until you see bubbles appear on the to surface more than just a few too! Now gently flip over & fry until each pancake is nicely fluffy. Plate up & top with syrups & butter if wish, whip cream or even ice cream!
