Peanut Butter Buttermilk Pancakes

Peanut Butter Buttermilk Pancakes by

I know…I’m obsessed with Peanut Butter!  Have you ever had it on, with or even inside pancakes?

When I make these buttermilk pancakes, fill them with the intensity of creamy peanut butter!

Another big ingredient in these pancakes is buttermilk.  It’s what makes them so moist and seriously FLUFFY!

As you already know, I make the Buttermilk Pancakes all the time– almost daily.  And my husband is always lathering peanut butter and syrup on them.  So I thought why not fill the batter with the yummy goodness, right? AND top it with a creamy, peanut buttery, sweet topping.  (Syrup is optional…)

Peanut Butter Buttermilk Pancakes

You make these just as you would with the Buttermilk Pancakes.  Put all the dry ingredients;  flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a mixing bowl.  And put the wet ingredients;  buttermilk, 1 egg and vanilla in a separate bowl.

But for these peanut butter pancakes, you add 1/3 cup of  warm peanut butter to the buttermilk, egg and vanilla mixture.


Heat 1/3 cup of peanut butter in a little microwavable bowl for 20 seconds.  The consistency will change so it will be more mixable with the buttermilk mixture.  Stir together.  Add to the dry ingredients.

Gently mix it all together.  Remember, it will be lumpy and some tiny spots will have flour not mixed in.  No worries.  The buttermilk, is doing it’s thing with the baking powder and baking soda .  So, set the bowl aside while you heat up your skillet to medium high.

Cook these a little longer than the plain buttermilk pancakes.  Time it for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side.  Remember, it also depends upon how hot your griddle/pan is.  When the sides turn dull (looks like it’s drying) and the middle is getting some air bubbles…then it’s time to flip!

While the pancakes are on the griddle.  Start your topping by adding 1 tablespoon of butter to a small sauce pan on medium low heat.  Whisk in 1/4 cup peanut butter, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 7 to 8 tablespoons of milk and 1 teaspoon of vanilla.

Once it starts to warm and the peanut butter is melting, turn it to low.  **Do not let it boil.

So now you’ve got your warm pancakes all done and your peanut butter sauce to spoon onto each one!

    These look so yummy. At my house we call buttermilk pancakes, Bawda Cakes. My grandmother taught us to make them years ago and when my husband learned I just let him take over. He loves peanut butter and so I know he’ll be trying this. Thank you for linking up and for your sweet comments. I’m pinning and sharing on twitter.
    Happy Easter,

      Aaron, I’m so happy you enjoyed this and stopped by to let me know how they turned out. Yes, the batter is a little thicker than you would find with other batters… but that’s what makes these just like little cakes. If you want to thin them out a little next time, go ahead and add 1 tablespoon (or 2) of more buttermilk. Have a great day!
