The View From Up Here.....
Sometimes I think the best feature of my kitchen is the view. If Edward Hopper were alive, and a had a ridiculous quantity of extra cash lying around, I would commission him to paint a painting of it -- enlarged to fit over the bed or a mantle.
Other times, I think the best feature of my kitchen is my husband! Sunday morning I realized that we had neither liquid milk nor eggs, so breakfast was looking like a challenge. But my hubby is the King of Pancakes, and undaunted by the lack of eggs forged ahead, making these delicious peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes:
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Using a baking mix that calls for eggs and water or milk:
1 3/4 c. pancake mix
1 T. cinnamon (optional, but a good addition...trust me!)
1 c. water
1 t. vanilla
1/4 c. peanut butter
3/4 c. chocolate chips
Using a fork, mix together the pancake mix and cinnamon. Stir in the water and vanilla. Fold in the peanut butter, incorporating completely, and then fold in the chocolate chips. On a preheated griddle, ladle on batter to form 4 inch circles. Using a spatula, push chocolate chips to disperse evenly throughout the pancakes. Turn when bubbles pop but stay open.
Serve with maple or chocolate syrup!
Makes 8-10 4-inch pancakes.
