Here I am (Aimee) reposting a delicious recipe that my mom posted over 2 years ago. When we first started this blog we were just posting recipes we liked, mostly for each other as I don’t think we had anyone else reading. At that point we weren’t taking any pictures of our recipes. Even when I started taking pictures of the food I made, the pictures were pretty awful. I like to think that I have improved greatly since then, thanks to a LOT of practice, and a few good camera tools (first a better camera – I shoot with the Nikon D5100. I use a 35 mm lens and if I can’t get good natural light I use our external flash aimed at the ceiling to bounce off).
These pancakes are really delicious, but so simple since the recipe is just a few extra ingredients added to a store bought traditional pancake mix.
You take your pancake mix and add in milk (instead of water that some add), an egg, a couple drops of vanilla extract, strawberries and chocolate chips. So you have your vanilla, strawberry and chocolate flavors just like you would get in a Neapolitan ice cream. The flavors come together perfect to make a perfect pancake. You can top your pancakes with traditional syrup (which is what we did) or a little chocolate syrup to get an even stronger chocolate flavor.
We’ve got some delicious homemade syrup recipes on the blog that would taste great! Buttermilk Syrup. Homemade Maple Syrup. Best Ever Homemade Syrup.
