Wow your kids by serving up a sweet slice of this breakfast stack. Sandwiched with ample jam between each pancake, the entire thing is then drenched in a crunchy peanut butter and maple syrup glaze. Feel free to use whichever jam or jelly your family likes, as well as almond or cashew butter instead of peanut butter.

Directions

For the pancakes: Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with two kitchen towels stacked on top of each other and place in the oven. This will keep your cooked pancakes warm.

Whisk the flour, cornstarch, confectioners' sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a large bowl. Whisk the milk, butter, eggs and vanilla together in a medium bowl. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and whisk until they form a thick batter (do not try to whisk out all the small lumps). Let the batter rest for 5 minutes. 

Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Ladle a heaping 1/2 cup of the batter into the skillet, spreading it into a 6-inch round. Cook until bubbles break the surface of the pancake, and the underside is golden brown, about 1 minute. Flip the pancake and cook until lightly golden and cooked through, about 45 seconds more. Transfer the pancake to the baking sheet in the oven, tucking it between the two kitchen towels. Repeat with the remaining batter to make 5 more pancakes. 

For the glaze: Combine the peanut butter, maple syrup and salt in a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave until hot, about 1 minute. Whisk vigorously until well-combined and smooth but still pourable.

To assemble: Place 1 pancake on a plate and spread evenly with 3 tablespoons jelly or jam. Top with another pancake, pressing down gently to flatten out the top and evenly distribute the jam. Spread 3 tablespoons of jam over the second pancake and top with a third. Repeat with the remaining pancakes and jam to make 1 large stack of 6 pancakes. Cut into quarters and serve immediately with the warm peanut butter syrup drizzled over the top.

Cook's Note

When measuring flour, we spoon it into a dry measuring cup and level off the excess. (Scooping directly from the bag compacts the flour, resulting in dry baked goods.)
