What’s a cross between peanut butter cookies and pancakes? . . . answer: Peanut Butter Griddle Cakes.
I came across a hundred-year-old recipe for Peanut Butter Griddle Cakes, and decided to give it a try. The recipe was incredibly easy. I whipped the batter up in a couple minutes–and in a couple more minutes I had beautiful golden brown griddle cakes. They were light and fluffy, and a hit at my house. My husband said, as he polished off the last griddle cake, “You should make these again.”
Here’s the original recipe:
And, here’s the recipe updated for modern cooks:
Peanut Butter Griddle Cakes (Pancakes)
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons peanut butter
2 cups milk
Put all ingredients in a mixing bowl, beat until smooth. Heat a lightly greased griddle or skillet to a medium temperature, then pour or scoop batter onto the hot surface to make individual griddle cakes. Cook until the top surface is hot and bubbly, and then flip and cook other side.
