Anyone else eat this combo? PB&J with pancakes ...

No, not a PB&J sandwich WITH your pancakes.

Rather, PB&J in BETWEEN your pancakes.

This is so damn good, it must be evil.

I may have found my next comfort food fascination.

  1. We used to put butter and jelly between our pancakes when I was a kid. Funny- I haven't thought of that in more than 40 years- until I saw your post!! We loved it- don't know why we never tried it with peanut butter- bet it is great.
    I know that chocolate chip pancakes are popular with lots of kids. For some reason, I find them vile. Oh well, to each his own.

    1. When I was little, I did it and rolled it up. If I tried it now, I might be tempted to cut it, bread/batter and then deep fry it.

      1. My boyfriend's whole family puts PB on their pancakes, but I don't know if they've ever tried it with jelly as well. I guess the jelly would function as a sort of syrup...interesting!

        1. I used to date somebody and for our birthdays every year, his mother would make Pancake-cake. at least 15 pancakes high.. Delicious.

          1. I used to enjoy Eggo waffles with peanut butter and Karo syrup. The peanut butter and syrup pools in each of the "cells" making for a really unctuous treat.

              We used to use KAro on our waffles, too- but not on our pancakes, for some reason. My mother used to use Karo syrup in some kind of baby formula. No idea what she made- I will have to ask her- or maybe some hounds remember some kind of babty formula with karo. SOunds unhealthy!

                Doctors years ago used to recommend Karo syrup with water to relieve infant constipation.

                  Thanks- never did know what she was making- just remember Karo syrup, and her sterilizing all the bottles, and washing all the diapers. Times sure have changed!!

                That's funny. When we were kids, my brothers and I also did the peanut butter and Karo syrup thing on pancakes/waffles. It was always butter and maple syrup or peanut butter and Karo -- never the other way around. I think it was a colors thing.
