Mini Chocolate Chip Doughnut Pancake Dippers

Mini Chocolate Chip Doughnut Pancake Dippers I’ve done something a little wacko. And by wacko I mean totally awesome.

I think it’s safe to say that this household loves doughnuts.

I also think it’s safe to say that everyone in the world loves doughnuts. Umm…who doesn’t love doughnuts? NO ONE.

See? I speak the truth.

I love real fried doughnuts a whooooooole lot… so much so that I hardly every buy them because I know I will eat them ALL.

Again, I speak the truth.

Well my lovelies, I’ve figured out a way to trick my brain into thinking that these pancakes are doughnuts because….they look just like doughnuts! What a concept! Take regular old pancake batter, stir in some chocolate chips, spoon into a mini doughnut pan and bake! 4 minutes in the oven and you’ve got a seriously fun breakfast that kiddies will just eat up….literally.

Mini Chocolate Chip Doughnut Pancake Dippers 1  If you don’t have a mini doughnut pan, a mini muffin tin will work just fine too. Dip these babies into some syrup and that’s breakfast! Or make them ahead, freeze and microwave as needed throughout the week. My daughter LOVED these and my husband was bummed he left for work early.

Moral of the story: it pays to be late for work when your wife is a food blogger. Also, you will be the coolest Mom on the block if you make these. At least that’s what I told myself last Thursday.

Enjoy :)

  2. Adorable! I do have a mini donut pan but it must be a little different shape than yours b/c mine come out more domed than yours do; it’s a Wilton pan. These would make my little girl so happy!

  3. While I’m not a huge doughnut fan (gasp) I love these! I would be just as excited about them as my kids, and I could definitely use help in the best-mom-on-the-block department :)

  19. I have never seen vinegar in a pancake recipe before and thought it was interesting. Was wondering if you could tell me what the purpose of it is?

    These look really good!! Thanks!

      If you mix vinegar with milk, it becomes a substitution for buttermilk! That’s why I add it.

  21. Can you actually use all purpose flour instead of self rising flour? Thanks

      You’d have to add in your own leavenings if you use all purpose.
