TCB: Takin Care of Business in a flash!….that was Elvis Presley’s mantra and we are doing it right here in Week 3 of the H-E-B Meal Maker Challenge which presents Peter Pan Peanut Butter as the featured ingredient.
Oh how you can have some fun with peanut butter and bananas! The cuisine folklore surrounding the biggest pop star of the 20th Century always seems to circle back to Elvis’ fondness for peanut butter, bananas and bacon. Rumor has it that Elvis and some friends were so craving a special peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwich one night that he summoned his pilots and flew in his private, converted airliner, the Lisa Marie, to Denver for a late night snack where they dined on the sandwiches then flew right back to Memphis.
Well we’re not living that large in this week’s Meal Maker Challenge but we’re making some excellent wholesome pancakes….The TCB ELVIS PANCAKES. And as an added bonus…here’s a link to the Graceland mansion live webcam so you can check out Elvis’ house while making our pancakes!

TCB Elvis Pancakes
1/2 Cup Peter Pan Peanut Butter
1 ripe Banana (Mashed)
1 1/2 Cups 2% milk
1 Cup whole wheat flour
2 Teaspoons baking powder
Heat griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Combine the flour and baking powder in a bowl. Mix together with a fork.
Heat the peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds or until it stirs easily.
Add the egg to the flour and baking powder mixture. Whisk for 30 seconds then add 1/2 cup of milk and whisk until mixed. Stir in peanut butter and remaining 1 cup of milk then add the mashed banana and mix well. The batter is now ready.
The griddle or frying pan is ready when water droplets bead and sizzle.
Pour batter onto the pan to form your pancake. When bubbles form on the top of the pancake (about 2-3 minutes) it’s time to flip, or as Elvis would say, “Flippy, real flippy.” Cook on the other side for about one minute. Serve immediately with maple syrup and of course…bacon. Enjoy!
