Move over plain pancakes because peanut butter and jelly flapjacks could be the flavor experience that transforms that childhood classic food pairing. Whether it is a weekday breakfast, Sunday brunch or National Flapjack day, this food idea could transform how you eat pancakes.
While the term pancakes and flapjacks are mostly interchangeable, the reality is that an American pancake always needs to be fluffy. Although some people have a secret pancake recipe or a tried and true pancake method, enjoying that perfect bite is a combination of flavors. In reality, the topping on that pancake is quite important.
Of course, a great maple syrup with a touch of butter is a classic choice. Even if you prefer a flavored maple syrup, one aspect remains the same with syrup. It absorbs into a pancake. That aspect often leads to adding more syrup to ensure that every bite has that sweet flavor.
But, shouldn’t there be a way where the syrup is a little thicker and sits on top of the pancakes? Kodiak Cakes has a peanut butter maple syrup that has a thicker viscosity than a regular syrup. When you put in on a pancake, it stays on the surface. It ensures that every bite has that tasty peanut butter maple syrup flavor.
How can you make peanut butter and jelly flapjacks?
After recently trying the Kodiak Cakes peanut butter maple syrup, the family came up with the perfect idea for pancakes, peanut butter and jelly flapjacks. Just like that classic childhood sandwich, the pancakes can be the perfect vehicle for those flavors.
To make these types of pancakes, simply pour some Kodiak Cakes peanut butter maple syrup on a pancake and top with the Kodiak Cakes Super Fruit Syrup (or you can use another Kodiak Cakes fruit syrup). Since the peanut butter maple syrup is thicker, it allows the fruit syrup to stay on top. Just like layering a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, the same idea applies to the pancakes.
The kids will love the flavors. The parents will be happy because the kids might be using less syrup. Overall, it is a big win.
And, you could even make a peanut butter and jelly pancake sandwich or layered pancake. Sometimes playing with your food is allowed.
