  • Place a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake into the middle of the skillet. Let the pancake cook until bottom is golden brown and there are many small pinholes in the top of the pancake before flipping, about 2 minutes. Cook other side until golden brown and the middle of the pancake is set, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

These were great! My family of 7 completely enjoyed them. I ran out of bananas and didn't have any chocolate chips so I improvised a little and used chunky peanut butter and the new JIF chocolatey butter. It worked great! I can't wait to make them again but with bananas next time.

These Elvis pancakes were terrible. I am guessing too much soda. They didn't taste like banana or peanut butter. They were extremely runny.

I used "soured" milk and Jif super-chunk peanut butter in this recipe. Though the batter looked okay in the bowl it was extremely thick and hard to not only get it onto the griddle without really messing with it AND the pancakes didn't want to cook once they were on the griddle. I would try this again but I would use a different pancake batter as the base--this one really didn't work out for me at all.

These were okay we all found them way too sweet. Also the batter is very thick and the first batch I had to toss because the inside never cooked up. I thinned the batter with more milk and the rest cooked up fine. If I make these again I will leave out the brown sugar. Also the peanut butter is very strong even though there's only 1/4 cup. I love PB but I think I would cut back just a little. If this was intended as a dessert pancake with a little vanilla ice cream I'd give it 5 stars for sure!

These were excellent for a special treat! I did add a little extra milk to get the batter more pourable maybe another 1/3 cup or so but these pancakes tasted great. I used smooth peanut butter and warmed it a bit to soften it so it would mix better.

Some of the previous reviews said this recipe was too thick. We actually had the opposite problem with it being runny. I did add another banana and I mashed them and mixed them with the liquids. Since it was runny I added an extra 2 TBSP of flour. They turned out yummy!

With or without peanut butter these are super easy and really good. I've even skipped the melted butter and they're delicious!

These have become a staple in our house one of the only breakfasts we all love! The only thing I do different is mash the bananas rather than dicing them.

I tried it without the peanut butter as my son is deathly allergic and it turned out perfectly. They ate them all and I had to whip up another batch. Thanks again for sharing such a great recipe.

Everyone in my family loves this recipe. It's always a great hit and I feel like after making it a few times it's really easy to do. I like to add a little extra brown sugar and a few extra chocolate chips but other than that this recipe is gold! Truth be told the banana being mushy in the pancake took a little getting used to for me (but I'm not usually a big banana fan) but I really love it. I think it's delicious.
