Wondering how to make peanut butter pancakes? These morning treats are one of my husband's specialties. It's not unusual for him to wake me with those hot-from-the griddle cakes! —Dorothy Pritchett, Wills Point, Texas


  • 1 cup pancake mix
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Optional: Maple syrup and chopped salted peanuts


  1. In a large bowl, combine pancake mix and sugar. In a small bowl, beat egg and peanut butter; add milk and water. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  2. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a lightly greased medium-hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top of pancakes; cook until second side is golden brown. In a small bowl, combine butter and honey until smooth. Serve with pancakes. If desired, top with chopped peanuts and maple syrup.
