Yes, yes it is!
Have you had peanut butter on pancakes? If not I dare you to give it a try! Make pancakes however you prefer, a simple recipe follows, or use the mix that is in the back of your pantry. Butter each pancake as it comes off of the griddle, slather the top one with peanut butter and then top with your syrup of choice. I prefer these with imitation syrups, yes, that stuff that’s just sweet and not made from real maple. Go with what you like. You can do this single layer too, but the peanut butter benefits from being on top of multiple layers. I’ve tried it with waffles but… it’s just not the same.
For Simple Pancakes Combine the Following:
1 cup flour
(combinations work well, whole wheat flour, rye flour, buckwheat flour, corn meal, etc.)
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 – 1 cup milk, buttermilk, cream, etc.
(adjust your liquid based on your desired thickness)
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tbs melted butter (or oil)
Many recipes call for sugar, add a few tablespoons if you like. I don’t see the need as the cakes are going to be topped with super sweet syrups! You can add fruits and nuts too!
Once combined poor desired amounts of the batter on to a hot griddle, either greased or non-stick. When they begin to bubble flip them. Keep the first few hot while you cook the entire batch. Serve with desired syrups, jams or fruits. Or, if you’re daring, try peanut butter!
