Peanut Butter Pancakes

I am always on the look for new and interesting recipes to try.  My E-mail inbox has new cooking newsletters for me almost every day so I should never run out of ideas!  One of the newsletters I subscribe to is from Family Fun magazine, and I really enjoy it.

Their recipes are usually simple and family-friendly for those picky eaters in your life and this pancake recipe more than qualifies.  The peanut buttery taste goes great with syrup or honey as a topping.  I think it would be good to just spread a little grape jelly on them, too, but I did not get a chance to try this!

Note: I made this batch exactly by the recipe, but I think I will add more milk next time, may 1 1/3 cups instead of the called-for amount.  The batter was just a little too thick.

1 cup all purpose flour

2/12 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (Chunky would probably be good, too.)

2 tbsp granulated sugar

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 large egg

1 cup + 2 tbsp milk (needs a little more)


In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.  Set aside.


In a small bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, sugar, and oil until smooth.  Beat in the egg and then the milk.


Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture, stirring just until blended.



Next, lightly coat a griddle or skillet with oil and heat it over medium-high heat.  Drop the batter onto the griddle by 1/4 cup measures.  Cook until tiny bubbles appear on the surface, then flip them and cook a few minutes more.  I served these as suggested by the website with warm pancake syrup,sliced bananas, and chopped peanuts..  They were delicious!
