Peanut Butter Pancakes


Hello everyone, I you are all having a wonderful morning.  As I am writing this out for you all I am in the throws of laundry too, lucky me.  So this morning we have some special guests with us for the day and I am going to be making them all pancakes.  One of my children's favorite is the one I am writing about today.  Peanut butter pancakes with grape jelly syrup.  I don't make this very often and in fact the last time I made these specific pancakes it was for my you tube channel.  The video is poor to say the least and it was one of the first videos I put up.  I didn't realize I had to explain measurements on a video lol.  Oh to be still wet behind the ears lol.  So I will have the measurements of everything here and I am doing this by memory.  If you find that you need more or less milk or more or less of something else this is probably why.  I have a good memory but not that good lol.  So let's get started before breakfast turns into lunch shall we?

Ingredients:

1 cup of grape jelly
1 cup of mixed frozen berries
1/2 cup of water
1 cup of milk
1 1/2 cups of Bisquick or any prepared pancake stuff will do
1 egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 cup of melted peanut butter
1 teaspoon of butter

Instructions:

Ok so to start grab a small sauce pan, we are going to get started on the syrup first.  You will want to put your burner on your stove to a medium low setting.  Now just add in the grape jelly, water and berries.  Bring this to a simmer and while still leaving it on the burner, turn the burner off.  Let sit on the warm burner until the pancakes are done but stir occasionally so it doesn't stick.  From here we are going to pre heat a large skillet or griddle.  In a large bowl mix milk, Bisquick, egg, peanut butter and vanilla together.  Cut up your teaspoon of butter and add very small amounts to the pan just so the pancake wont stick.  The peanut butter will make the batter a little more sticky than usual.  I used quarter cup measurements to add  batter to the pan but you can use a ladle as well.  Now just cook them up like you would a reg. pancake.  Flip it over when there are bubbles forming all over the pancake.  Make as much or as little as you wish and top with the grape jelly syrup.  Serve this alone or add some fruit to it and you have a complete breakfast.  Take care everyone and live, laugh and love.
