Aunt Carmen’s Amazing Creamy Peanut Butter Pancakes Recipe!

People know my Aunt Carmen as the pancake lady. She’s not necessarily and excellent chef when it comes to the main course or even casseroles (she often forgets to add one or two of the major ingredients resulting in a really weird dish), but her pancakes are one of the best in the whole wide world. I. Am. Not. Kidding. She experiments with her pancakes a lot. She can think of so many combinations for the batter. And while some of them are truly weird, they all taste great! Her daughter inherited her knack for such things and she now possesses the pancake recipes of her mom.


I have a few favorites. I have the blueberry cream cheese pancakes, the coffee-chocolate chip pancakes, the pumpkin pancakes, and the corn pancakes (they taste like cornbread and I love cornbread). But my favorite has to be the simplest recipe—the peanut butter pancakes. There’s nothing really extraordinary about the ingredients, but they taste really good as pancakes. I know my Aunt uses homemade peanut butter, which makes it so much tastier. My cousin’s version is similar to this recipe over at They use store-bought peanut butter, but the pancakes still taste like that old-style recipe from an older generation.

Quick Tip: Put a dollop of whipped cream on top, sprinkle nuts, and drizzle maple syrup all over for that added flavor to your breakfast.
