Back to School PB & J Pancakes                                    *Serves 4

 Peanut Butter Pancakes Ingredients :
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk, plus extra if needed to thin
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 4 tablespoons butter
Preheat a griddle. In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. Slowly mix in egg, milk, peanut butter and oil until combined. Add a little extra milk if batter feels too thick. Let mixture sit 5 minutes. Melt 1 tablespoon butter on griddle and move around to coat entire griddle. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter per pancake on griddle to form 5-inch pancakes. The batter spreads as it cooks. Fill griddle without crowding pancakes. Flip when air pockets start to pop on the top and a quick peek on the underside reveals a golden pancake. Repeat with remaining butter and batter. 4 tablespoons butte. Serve with blackberry syrup. If blackberries are hard to come by you can also heat jam or jelly in a sauce pan and use as syrup.

Blackberry Syrup Ingredients :
  • 2 pints fresh blackberries
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 lemon, zested 
 In a saucepan over medium heat, combine all ingredients and bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Lower heat to a simmer and cook until liquid is reduced to a syrupy consistency, about 10 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to break up blackberries as they cook. Strain syrup to remove seeds and serve warm.

Fold in 1 pint of blueberries. (*if using the Pancake Chef sprinkle the blueberries on the pancakes before you flip them on the griddle the first time*)
Melt ½ Tbsp. unsalted butter in large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat.
For each pancake you could set your Pancake Chef on dial setting 5 or 6 depending on your pancake size preference. If ladling or spooning batter there should be about a half of cup of batter for each pancake.
Cook until bubbles appear evenly over pancake, 2 to 3 minutes.
Flip and cook until cooked thoroughly, about 1 to 2 minutes more.
Repeat buttering the skillet between batches.
Serve with butter and maple syrup.
