peanut flour-buttermilk pancakes stuffed w/ bacon

peanut flour-buttermilk pancakes stuffed w/ bacon

Why yes I always serve a side of bacon along side my pancakes that are stuffed with bacon. Don't you? Sunday mornings are meant for bacon overdose.
These fabulous pancakes are made with peanut flour. Since I'm still on my peanut flour kick, I thought why not use it in pancakes? The flavor of peanut butter is not overwhelming at all. I thought it would be, but it is not. Hence my idea to serve along side it a nice dose of peanut butter-maple syrup. Perfect topping. One could easily serve a nice warm jam too--I think that would taste just as good if not better; kind of like pb & j pancakes with a dose of bacon.
The photos are not the best--this is not an easy dish to photograph, but it sure does taste delish.

print recipe

2 cups peanut flour
1 cups all-purpose flour
4 TB white sugar
3 ts baking powder
1 ½ ts baking soda
1 ts salt
2 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup whole milk
3 eggs
1/3 cup + 2 TB butter, melted

Extra butter for frying up the pancakes
About 10-12 slices of cooked bacon

Peanut butter-maple syrup
1 cup of smooth peanut butter
1 cup (or more of maple syrup)

Cook notes:
Those pancakes don’t cook up like normal pancakes they are a lot thinner. So you might be tempted to over-pour the batter onto the bacon—don’t. Pour just under enough and watch it spread out on its own. Your best bet is to do a test pancake so you can see how the pancake sets up. This pancake also takes a bit longer to brown than your normal pancake does.
The next time I make these I will add in a touch of vanilla extract; just to boost up the sweetness inside the pancake. Make sure to grease up the pan for each batch of pancakes, unless you have nonstick pan. To make pouring of the batter easier I put batter in a measuring cup that had a spout, but it might be really beneficial to use a squirt bottle with large opening.

For the pb-maple syrup:
Mix both ingredients in a small saucepan and heat over low heat. Stir to incorporate. Don’t let it burn, just keep it warm.

In a large bowl, combine the peanut flour, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
In a separate bowl mix the buttermilk, milk, eggs and melted butter.
You must keep the two mixtures separate until you are ready to cook!
Heat a lightly butter-greased griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.
Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, and mix until just combined. DO NOT overmix; lumps are good and a must!
Place a slice of cooked bacon on pan, pour just enough pancake batter along the length of the piece of bacon; adding just enough as this batter does spread a lot. Fry until side is browned and crisp, then flip over. The first one might be crooked, mine was; you get the hang of it as you go along.
Keep cooked pancakes warm in heated (150-200 degree oven) on a jelly roll pan until all are done.
Serve pancakes with the warmed pb0maple syrup sauce or plain old maple syrup.

Should make about 10-12 pancakes; depending on size you make them

  5. I tried making chocolate bacon pancakes before, but I crushed the bacon up in the batter. I ended up with hard weird bits in the pancakes from the bacon, so placing the bacon down first seems like a much better idea!

  6. Wow, that SYRUP! I need that in my life...that's not even syrup, that's like frosting practically and I pretty much love how THICK and gooey it looks. And of course, the creative pancakes themselves. I don't eat bacon but if I did, I bet this would just be heaven-sent! The salty-sweet combo, the crunchy/soft combo, it's all there!

  13. Oh wow. Just WOW. There's nothing better than double bacon on a Sunday morning, unless it's double bacon with a double dose of PB / peanut flour.

    Just pinned this to my Food porn board. :)

  14. DYING. You've just combined four of my favorite foods into one dish. And since my husband hates peanut butter, I will not have to share. HA!

  16. Peanut flour? I think I missed something. This definitely requires some research. I'm already thinking ahead to recipes it would work in.
    I've tried to take photos like this without assistance and it's not easy. The camera drops into the food, or I smear something, or blur the photo. I think you did a great job. I am drooling re the bacon.

  17. i happen to adore bacon and peanut butter with my pancakes. i've never actually combined peanut butter and maple syrup into one topping (i always just smear one and pour the other), but it's a great idea!
