My mother frequently asks for this recipe when she's in the mood for something special - it's a breakfast favorite! The batter is very thin, but puffs up and may have a variable thickness throughout, however a shallow pie dish is just fine. It is very buttery. The mini chocolate chips contribute to the overall sweetness of the pancake, which can be served with a variety of additions: a fruit sauce, cream, powdered sugar or even a delicate drizzling of maple syrup. However, this is plenty sweet on its own -- unlike most pancakes, these are sweet enough to stand alone.The ease and speed of this dutch baby gives it an advantage over ordinary pancakes.

My family really enjoyed this. We did not add any syrup, it was sweet enough w/o it.

This was WAY TOO SWEET!!! I even made it with milk instead of half and half to lessen the richness of it. My kids loved it but what kids don't love a ton of sugar for breakfast? Yuck! Will not be making it again.
