Filled Pancakes

These filled pancakes are definitely a fun and easy twist on the normal pancake. The pan is the key to the round shape and can be found here. The filling is up to you, so far I've tried blackberry jam, strawberry jam, peanut butter, and chocolate chips...nutella will be next. Our family favorite would have to be the chocolate chips, although the strawberry ones were a close second with me.
The cuteness factor alone is definitely worth spending the extra dough for this specialty pan. I know I enjoy eating these little beauties much more than a normal flapjack...which actually might not be a good thing, come to think of it!

Buttermilk Pancakes
1 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 T sugar
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
2 T vegetable oil

Fill each depression with 1 T batter. Sprinkle 4-5 chocolate chips or 1 heaping tsp of filling onto batter. Push filling into batter slightly. Cover with up to 1 T more batter. Cook unil edges appear bubbly and slightly dry and then flip over. I use a small offset spatula to help flip them. Cook an additional minute or two until both sides are golden and then remove with a spoon. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar and enjoy. Makes about 18 filled pancakes.
