Old Fashioned Pancakes

old fashioned pancakesLast Sunday for breakfast I made chocolate chip pancakes, and this time I was not lazy, I made them from scratch. I had seen a recipe for old fashioned pancakes on allrecipes.com, but I changed it a little by adding vanilla extract, chocolate chips, and the amount of milk. These pancakes are light, fluffy and just delicious! I added chocolate chips but they are good any way you serve them.
