Food + Foto Week 5: Chocolate Chip Pancakes & Fresh Whip

Here’s my fifth Food + Foto submission…Semi-Homemade Chocolate Chip Pancakes with fresh whip cream J

I’m loyal to good ol’ Aunt Jemima, so all I do is make her pancake mix (not the “just add water” kind) and fold in some chocolate chips when done mixing.  I know - pancakes from scratch would be way better.  But sometimes you gotta pick your battles. And I pick fresh whip J For the whip I use 1 cup heavy cream, 1/8 cup sugar, and ½ tablespoon of vanilla extract.  I beat with a mixer until soft peaks form.  And then lick the mixer thingies clean when cleaning up J
