Peanut Butter & Jelly [pancake] Sandwiches

My midgets love breakfast foods.  Cereals, oatmeals, pancakes, waffles, crepes, eggs...they love it all!

[In fact, there are the occasional nights where I make breakfast for dinner.  And the kids cheer.]

My friend gave me this recipe, and we thought we'd give it a whirl.  The midgets loved it! 

You definitely don't have to serve this as "sandwiches".  They would be great as regular pancakes---maybe use your jam/jelly, reduce it down to a syrup and serve it that way!

PB Pancake Sandwiches
  • 1 1/4 c. flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 c. peanut butter [creamy]
  • 1 egg
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 1 1/4 c. milk
  • Jelly or Jam [I used homemade raspberry]
  • cream cheese
  1. Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together in a mixing bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the peanut butter, egg and sugar until combined.  Whisk in the milk until combined.
  3. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined.  [Okay to have a few lumps, don't overmix!]
  4. Cook on a hot griddle for about 2-3 minutes a side.
  5. Set aside to cool.
  6. In a small bowl mix together jam and softened [or whipped] cream cheese until combined.
  7. Take a cooled pancake, spread with jam/cream cheese mixture, and top with another pancake to make a sandwich.
*I also served these just topped with the jam/cream cheese and cut up.
