Your mom probably told you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but who said it has to be a drag? These fluffy pancakes, flavored with mini chocolate chips and a touch of orange zest, make that meal fun. View more modern classics that are just like mom’s, except better.
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1 rounded cup semisweet mini chocolate chips
  • Accompaniment:

    3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened, mixed with 3 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • Whisk together all ingredients except chips until just combined.
  • Heat a griddle over medium heat until hot and lightly brush with additional oil. Working in batches, pour a scant 1/4 cup batter per pancake onto griddle and sprinkle each pancake with about 1 1/2 teaspoons chips. Cook until bubbles appear on surface and undersides are golden-brown, about 1 minute. Flip with a spatula and cook other side, about 1 minute more. (Lightly oil griddle between batches.)
