Peanut Butter Pancakes

Try pancakes with a sweet, crunchy peanut butter sauce – perfect for a weekend brunch or even dessert!

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 20 mins
Difficulty: Easy
Serves: 12


250g crunchy peanut butter
50g unsalted butter, cubed, plus extra for cooking
6 tbsp maple syrup
300g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp golden caster sugar
2 large eggs
350ml milk
sunflower oil, for cooking
fruit, to serve (optional)


  1. Heat the peanut butter, butter and 4 tbsp maple syrup in the microwave, or a pan, for 2 mins, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth and combined. Set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder and sugar in a large bowl with a small pinch of salt. Crack in the eggs and whisk until smooth. Add the milk and ¾ of the peanut butter mixture and whisk to combine. 
  3. Heat a splash of sunflower oil and a small knob of butter in a non-stick frying pan until foaming. Add 2 tbsp of batter to make small pancakes, making sure there’s space between each. Cook until bubbles start to form on the surface, then flip and cook on the other side. Keep warm in a low oven whilst you make the next batch.
  4. Serve the pancakes with the remaining peanut butter sauce, maple syrup and fruit, if using. You may have to reheat the sauce to loosen the mixture slightly.
