Peanut Butter Cup Pancakes will give you an indulgent treat for your weekend brunch. Or evening dessert!

Peanut Butter Cup Pancakes are every peanut butter lover’s dream come true. Loaded with whipped cream, chocolate sauce and mini peanut butter cups – who could resist?

I like to think that I’m a practical baker and cook, despite the fact that I’ve shared crazy indulgent desserts like S’mores Waffle Sundaes and Oreo Cheesecake here on My Baking Addiction.

One thing that we always keep pretty basic is breakfast. It’s either toast and an over-easy egg or a bowl of oatmeal with fresh berries – except on Sundays. Because Sundays in our house always equal pancakes or on occasion French Toast.

Peanut Butter Cup Pancakes will please your chocolate and peanut butter lover to no end. Spectacular!

I’m typically up a bit earlier than Eric and Elle, so I usually enjoy a cup of coffee, check emails and then get our Sunday morning breakfast started. Fluffy pancakes drenched in real maple syrup and oven-crisped bacon – it’s become a ritual. But lately I’ve been getting experimental with our Sunday morning stack. Topping them with homemade blueberry sauce, adding in pecans and brown sugar, and now these Peanut Butter Cup Pancakes.

Yep, you read that correctly – Peanut Butter Cup Pancakes. And you have Karly from Buns In My Oven to thank for this delectable creation.

Peanut Butter Cup Pancakes offer a sweet start to your morning. Chocolate sauce and miniature peanut butter cups--what could be better?

Peanut Butter Cup Pancakes are every peanut butter lover’s dream come true. Loaded with whipped cream, chocolate sauce and mini peanut butter cups – who could resist?


  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 ¼ cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup mini chocolate peanut butter cups, chopped into small pieces

  1. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, and peanut butter.
  4. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until combined, but still slightly lumpy.
  5. Spray your cooking surface with non-stick cooking spray and place ¼ cup of the pancake batter in the pan. The batter is very thick and will need spread a bit with the back of a spoon, spatula, or your ¼ cup measuring cup. Sprinkle immediately with a few pieces of chopped peanut butter cups. Use a spoon to spread a bit of the batter over the candy pieces. Cook for 3 minutes per side or until cooked through. Repeat with remaining pancakes.
