Fluffy American pancakes with peanut butter and jelly - they're flippin' great!

SERVES 4 Ready in 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 300g Co-op self raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp Fairtrade caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs from our Love Local range, beaten
  • 300ml Co-op British semi-skimmed milk
  • 350g strawberries
  • 3 heaped tbsp Co-op smooth peanut butter
  • 10g Co-op British unsalted butter
  • 40g Co-op roasted and salted peanuts, roughly chopped

Method:

  1. Put the flour and baking powder in a bowl and stir in 1 tbsp of the sugar. Add the egg and a splash of milk, mix until smooth, then whisk in the remaining milk.
  2. For the ‘jelly’, set 4 strawberries aside and roughly chop the remainder. Cook in a saucepan with the remaining sugar over a gentle heat, stirring frequently until the sugar has dissolved and the strawberries are softened and juicy. Bring to the boil and cook for 1-2 mins to reduce a little. Set aside.
  3. Heat a nonstick frying pan set over a medium-high heat, then ladle in large spoonfuls of the batter. Leave until bubbles appear, then flip over and cook until golden. Keep warm while you make more pancakes — you’ll need 16 in total.
  4. Heat the peanut butter and butter in a pan until warm and runny, and halve the reserved berries. Stack 4 pancakes on each plate, then drizzle with peanut butter and spoon on the jelly. Sprinkle with peanuts, then garnish with the strawberries.
