Peanut Butter Pancakes with Butterfinger Baking Bits

Last Friday was my birthday.  I had hoped to go out of town, but I had an errand come up that needed to be done sooner than later.  I ended up staying local and finishing my errand in the morning.

I went to a movie, walked around an older, historic part of town, went window shopping, and ate a delicious, chocolate cupcake.  I also bought a pretty necklace.

That evening, I went to dinner with some friends at an Ethiopian restaurant.  I have only eaten Ethiopian food a few times, but it's fun.  An assortment of meats and vegetables come out on a tray.  Everyone eats with thin, airy, and flat bread from the same tray.  The flavors are warm and spicy.

I also received many wonderful messages and calls from friends and family.  There is nothing like a birthday to make you feel loved.

This peanut butter pancake recipe came from another blog called recipe girl.  It is packed full of peanut butter flavor.  I added Butterfinger baking bits.  I also doubled the recipe.

The ingredients are 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon white sugar, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 3/4 cup buttermilk, 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter, 1 large egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1/2 cup Butterfinger baking bits.

I whisked together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In another bowl, I whisked together the buttermilk, peanut butter, egg, and vanilla.

I poured the liquid ingredients into the flour mixture.  I whisked the batter together.

I added the Butterfinger baking bits into the mix and stirred.

I greased a hot skillet.  I added a fourth to a  third of a cup of batter to the skillet.  The batter was very thick.  I probably should have added more buttermilk.

I cooked the pancakes until the edges looked drier and bubbled formed in the center of the cakes.  I flipped and cooked the other side of the pancakes for a few minutes.

I am in the habit of eating  greek yogurt on my pancakes.

These were substantial, thick, and hearty pancakes.

They had a pronounced and delectable peanut butter flavor.

The texture was fluffy and tender.  The baking bits were crunchy, sweet, and chocolaty.  

These were nutty, soft, and toothsome.  This is a good pancake recipe, and the Butterfinger baking bits made the pancakes extra special and a little decadent.
