Malaysian Peanut Pancakes – sign me up!  Get the original from My Kitchen Snippets and my version here!

So, I may have goofed a bit with this recipe, but these pancakes were still amazeballs.  like as in balls of amazing.  like you need to eat these.  now.  in real life.  They’re veryhearty pancakes – my roomie and I shared 1 for a meal.  My main goof was making these pancakes a bit too thick so they were definitely heartier than they’re probably supposed to be, but still, it’s basically a  fluffy pancake peanut sandwich which is at least one of the dictionary definitions of “hearty.”

(just waiting to be devoured!)

Something I did right, though (per usual…well, more usual), was using salted peanuts.  The original recipe didn’t really specify what type of peanuts to use – except for Malaysian-style roasted peanuts (at least that’s what I assumed).  Since I don’t know what Malaysian-style roasted peanuts are, I just substituted good old roasted peanuts that I chopped up in a food processor.

Sooo, yeah, these pancakes may sound exotic (code word for difficult to make), but they really weren’t.  Are you still here? Go make some pancakes SON!
