Wow that title was a mouthful, but I had to get in all the amazing bits of this recipe. First things first the fluffy pancakes! I was lucky enough o be sent a pack of Griddle bakery chocolate chip pancakes. This easy ready to use mix is ready with just the addition of milk (and eggs if preferred) and they make the fluffiest pancakes I’ve ever seen! They are available direct ton their website or at Sainsbury’s so definitely check them out!
Now what better accompaniment to chocolate chip pancakes then a peanut caramel sauce!! I’m literally drooling as I type this. Using a few store cupboard essentials this easy caramel sauce is whipped up in no time. I used Manilife deep roast smooth peanut butter to make the sauce (the flavour is incredible and it’s the perfect runny consistency), followed by maple syrup to sweeten, vanilla extract to flavour, salt and milk to loosen. I used 2 tbsp in my sauce, but if you would like a thinner sauce, add more milk.
Finally the pecans, I love caramelising my pecans in maple syrup it adds so much flavour, because not only does adding them to the pan toast them, the maple syrup adds an amazing caramel glaze, I like to add a little pinch of salt sometimes too.
Let me know if you give this recipe a try, I love hearing your feedback.
