1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 large eggs, separated
3 tablespoon butter, melted, plus 4 tablespoons, divided
6 OZ semi-sweet chocolate morsels
2 Tablespoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
Preheat griddle to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt.
In a small bowl, combine milk, egg yolks, and 3 tablespoons melted butter; add to flour mixture, whisking until smooth.
In a small bowl, beat egg whites at medium-high speed with an electric mixer until stiff. Gently fold into batter. Gently fold in chocolate morsels.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter on hot griddle. Ladle about 1/4-cup batter for each pancake onto hot griddle. Cook pancakes for 2 to 3 minutes, or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Turn and cook the other side. Repeat procedure with remaining 2 tablespoons butter and remaining batter.
I love pairing this savory sweet brunch item with a nice Demi Sec. One of my faovrites is the Domaine Carneros Demi Sec!
