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!
- 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:
- ½ cup chocolate chip
- 1,5 cup heavy cream
- In a bowl, mix the 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!
