  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • powdered sugar, optional
  • maple syrup, optional

Kitchen Gadgets

  • 8-inch cast iron skillet
  • food processor/blender


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place 8-inch cast iron skillet in oven to warm as oven heats.

  2. Into a food processor add flour & salt. Blend to combine.

  3. Next add in milk, eggs & 1 1/2 tbsp melted butter. Blend until all ingredients completely combined & no visible lumps.

  4. When oven is pre-heated, remove skillet from oven. Add the remaining 1 1/2 tbsp butter to the skillet. (Be careful, the skillet will be very hot & melt the butter quickly). Swirl around butter until skillet is coated.

  5. Immediately after butter is melted in skillet, pour in your batter.
