Ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter (I used Peanut Butter & Co. Smooth Operator)
  • 1 tablespoon shortening or oil (for the pan)

Directions

  1. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar and set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, blend the egg, milk, and peanut butter together until smooth.
  3. Combine the dry and wet mixtures. To keep the pancakes tender, don’t over mix. A few small lumps are ok.
  4. Add the oil or shortening to a hot griddle or frying pan (Ms. Parks specified 275°F). And cook for about 60 seconds on each side. Enjoy with maple syrup, honey, or a dollop of jam.
