My best friend spent the night at my house and in the morning, she wanted Reese’s for breakfast. I couldn’t serve here that for breakfast, what kind of a hostess would I be? So, I decided to concoct a delicious Reese’s Peanut Butter Pancakes for her. My recipe was a hit and now everyone asks for it by name!
This recipe makes 16 large pancakes
1 1/4 cups milk
4 tablespoons white vinegar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Extra butter for the pan, about 1/2 cup
5 cups of Reese’s Peanut Butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 large chocolate bar
Combine the milk and vinegar and set aside for 5 minutes. The milk will “sour” but this is the desired effect, don’t panic.
Combine the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda) together in a mixing bowl.
Add the eggs, vanilla and butter into the milk and whisk.
Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Whisk until all of the lumps are gone and the mixture is smooth. Add in the chocolate chips and mix.
Heat a large skillet to medium heat and melt a tab of butter and coat the pan. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter on the pan and cook until bubbles form on top and the edges look cooked, this will take approximately 2-3 minutes. Then flip and cook for an additional minute on the other side.
Mix together the Reese’s peanut butter and the powdered sugar and place a healthy heaping on each pancake and spread.
Shave the chocolate on top of each pancake and serve.
