For breakfast on Jake’s 15th birthday, I surprised him with one of his favorite treats in the world, chocolate chip pancakes. He LOVES chocolate in his pancakes. I’m not a fan. But I do love fresh fruit in my cakes, so I threw in some raspberries I had in the fridge and sprinkled with chocolate. Topped with Buttermilk Syrup. The result? One happy birthday boy.


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries or 1 cup thawed frozen berries
  • 1 cup chocolate chips I used mini

Buttermilk Syrup

  • 1/2 cup butter not margarine
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda


  1. In a medium bowl beat egg, buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla together with whisk.
  2. Add all of the dry ingredients and mix once. The batter will be a bit lumpy. If it’s too think add a little water.
  3. Heat griddle to about 330-350 degrees or if using a pan on the stove about medium high heat. Grease the pan and add 1/4 cup of batter to the pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and raspberries, I broke the berries in half and placedthe berries on the pancakes. Cook until bubbles rise and start to pop, then flip the pancake. Once. Do not pat down. Cook (about 2-3 minutes). To test, use the corner of the spatula and poke the cake in the middle. If the pancake is done, it will spring back.
  4. Serve immediately with more chocolate chips, fresh berries, andhome made Buttermilk Syrup.

Buttermilk Syrup

  1. Heat butter, buttermilk, and sugar in a saucepan. Heat until boiling. Boil for about 1 minute. Remove from heat and add vanilla and baking soda (this will foam up, so make sure your pan is big enough to accommodate). Stir until combined. Serve immediately over pancakes or waffles.
