Cakes from a Pan

We stayed up much too late last night watching a movie called Starflight One. It seems we have a new channel that purposely shows such gems and when we came across a movie showing a super-sonic plane that had gone into orbit, well, we just couldn't turn away. The stellar performances of Lee Majors and Hal Linden also kept us glued to our seats. Very dramatic stuff. We woke up late again and had talked about making pancakes so I set up a little breakfast bar for us. Until about 6 or 7 months ago I didn't even know you could make pancakes that didn't come from the Bisquick box, much less attempted to make them. I'd planned on making some plain and some blueberry but found at the last minute that I'd used up the rest of my blueberries in the delicious cran-blueberry sauce from a couple weeks ago. What's a logical subsitute? Chocolate chips, of course! The first guy didn't turn out so well - he was huge, doughy, and not so cooked on the inside. A little bit of practice though and most turned out pretty well for the first go-round, and we even have leftovers in the freezer for a busy morning! I was hungry-hungry and had 2.5 of these big cakes!
