Recipe Origins: Rosa Parks Featherlite Peanut Butter Pancakes
If you love pancakes and peanut butter then you’ll love these Peanut Butter Pancakes! This delicious recipe was created by Rosa Parks. If you want to see the original recipe, in her handwriting, you can see it here. What a treasure.
Make a Peanut Butter Drizzle!
These peanut butter pancakes are especially delicious topped with a peanut butter drizzle (it’s like a peanut butter sauce). This drizzle is the easiest thing to make too. Just heat up about 1/3 cup of smooth peanut butter in the microwave (about 25 seconds), then let everyone drizzle it onto their pancakes. This is SO GOOD.
Peanut Butter Pancakes are delicious as is, but if you’re looking for some toppings to add, sliced bananas and/or fresh berries like strawberries and raspberries are delicious. Or make it a PB&J combo and smother on raspberry jam or strawberry jam! But if you’re a pancake purist, maple syrup is tasty.
Peanut Butter Pancakes Recipe Tips:
- Peanut Butter: Use smooth peanut butter. I have not made these with natural peanut butter so I’m not sure if it would work or not. I have also not made these with any other type of nut butter.
- Flour: This recipe uses all purpose flour. But I have also made these pancakes with whole wheat flour, although they aren’t quite as fluffy, but they are tasty. I just used 1/2 cup white flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour.
- Milk: Use any type of milk that you like (1%, 2%, 3%, condensed milk or non dairy milks work too). I use 2%.
- Mixing Tip: I like to use a hand blender to combine the egg, milk, peanut butter and melted butter. It’s just too hard to make this portion come together nice and smoothly without it.
- Toppings: These pancakes are amazing served with peanut butter drizzle, jam, syrup, or even just butter!
- Storage: Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days.
- Reheating: Reheat any leftover pancakes in the toaster or toaster oven.
- Freezing: These pancakes freeze well. Store in an airtight container or ziplock bag in the freezer for up to 2 months. See my handy tip for freezing crepes that’s also useful for freezing pancakes!
Bubbly Batter Note:
You will notice that the batter will fluff up A LOT. In fact, it becomes quite bubbly and this is completely normal for this recipe. It’s what makes these pancakes ‘featherlite’. Don’t stir the bubbles away, just scoop as is onto the griddle.
