Basic American Pancake plus peanut butter pancake recipe

Another recipe of my day! I made these pancakes for me and my brother’ breakfast, they are lovely luffy. moist and peanut buttery! Top with a lilte bit butter and apple jam, such a nice combination of sweet and salty, nutty flavor and a bit sour of jam. oh lovely!

Peanut butter Pancakes

( 3 servings, er… but i’m shy to say it’s actually 2, just for us only :D)

  • 100gram Plain Flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 1 1/2 table spoon sugar
  • 180 ml milk
  • 60 grams peanut butter
  • Pinch of salt


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda
  2. In small bowl or measuring cup, stir together the milk,egg yolk and peanut butter til smooth. Add to the dry ingredients and beat just until a batter is formed. Do not overbeat.
  3. Whisk the egg white with sugar and salt until foamy
  4. Gently fold the foamy egg white to the mixture
  5. Lightly oil a nonstick saute pan or griddle over medium heat. Spoon the batter by 1/4 cupfuls inot the pan. Cook until golden brown on both sides. Serve immediately.(I did not oil or use butter for my griddle, it’s non-stick and worked fine without it)


Sometimes, im lazy to not to separate my egg and the result i got is the pancake is not really fluffy, they are quite thick and the egg is curved up. (update: i found the secret to be lazy but the pancake will still have a lovely golden brown, really simple, you just need to rest the batter for at least 30 mintues before cooking)

Can you see the Differences?

To make a round shape pancake, you just pour the batter to the pan from the center, and let the batter make a round shape itself.

Flip the pancake over when you see bubbles in the batter.

All ingredients must be at room temperature.

Basic pancake:

  • You can use this recipe like as the basic pancake recipe ( The batter will be quite thin but it gave very soft, tender and fluffy pancakes, but it will be a little difficult to get a nice shape, so, if you dont mind ugly shape but delicious pancake, go with it, or you can add more Flour (~10 grams) to make the cooking easier, For me, I prefer only 100 grams flour) and top with whatever toppings that you like.. 🙂
  • Increase the sugar to 2 tbs
