Peanut Butter Poodle Pancakes
Let the kids design their own pooch with chocolate chips, whipped cream and fruit roll-ups!
- 1 1/4 cups flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- Whipped cream
- 12 chocolate chips
- 1 strawberry fruit roll-up, cut into 4 thin strips
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, beat together the milk, egg, peanut butter and butter until smooth. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until just combined.
Heat a nonstick griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Drop 1/4 cup batter onto the griddle for each pancake and cook until it begins to puff and the bottom is golden, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until golden on the other side. Repeat with the remaining batter; you will need 10 pancakes.
Place one pancake each on four plates. Cut out four ovals from two more pancakes. Cut the remaining four pancakes in half. Top each whole pancake with two pancake halves for the ears, one oval for the muzzle, whipped cream for the “fur,” chocolate chips for the eyes and nose and a strip of fruit roll-up for the tongue.
