Peanut Butter Pancakes: to make a great start for the brand new day !
You cannot go wrong with pancakes, not with peanut butter ones anyway. If you make them for a weekday breakfast, use your favourite spread for speed. But at the weekend, I suggest you make a chocolate ganache to go with the pancakes: you will discover a brand new favourite combination.
Ganache is not a hard thing to do. It takes only a small pot, heavy cream and chocolate chips. Melt the ingredients in the pot, heating them slowly and mixing frequently to get a smooth texture. It only takes a few minutes, so the pancakes are still warm, ready to combine with the melting chocolate. A heavenly start to a brand new day.

All together, the quantity below is enough for 10 pancakes. If you are a small family like us, you could have these for Sunday breakfast, or as dessert after lunch. All you have to do is to heat the pancakes and the spread in a microwave and there you go!
Peanut Butter Pancakes
- Ingredients for pancakes:
- 2 eggs
- 4 Tbsp peanut butter
- 1 cup flour
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- ¾ cup milk
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- Ingredients for chocolate ganache:

In a bowl, mix dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and sugar). Set aside.
In another bowl, mix the eggs and peanut butter. Add the milk and lemon juice.
Combine the dry and wet ingredients until smooth.
Ladle the batter onto a hot griddle. Cook up to 2 mins on each side.
Repeat with the remaining batter, making 10 pancakes.
In a small pot, slowly melt the chocolate chips and heavy cream, mixing frequently to get smooth ganache.
Serve the pancakes warm with the ganache and enjoy!
