My mom’s good friend Jeryl Abelman, wrote a cute book called “Quickly’s Magical Pancake Adventure”. It’s a great story about a magic spatula and is fun for kids who love pancakes. GKC is not the only one to think its a great book, it has won some prestigious awards (Winner of the London Book Festival Children’s Book Award and also 2nd Place in the Cookbook Category in London. Most recently, a winner at The New York Book Festival).
The book is also filled with some delicious pancake recipes from famous chefs. This recipe is from the book. Joyce’s Chocolate Chip Pancakes is from Chef Justin Fields, Courtesy of The Ritz-Carlton, Denver
