Peanut Butter and Jelly Stuffed Pancakes

I really can’t believe I could made these Peanut Butter and Jelly Stuffed Pancakes. I felt that I reached another level. I don’t know why but when eating these delicious pancakes I thought of eating a glazed doughnut filled with peanut butter and jelly. Maybe I dreamed it or maybe is a signal that I most cook them!

I used a homemade mango jelly because they are in season and my grand parents have an enormous mango tree with a lot of mangoes. We went to an adventure to pick up mangoes and suddenly…we had two trash bags full of mangoes! We really have to thank that. When I arrived home to store the mangoes, they occupied two drawers of the refrigerator. I did mango juice, ice cream and jelly and most importantly I gifted mangoes to everyone!

This pancakes can be tricky to cook but it is still funny. First, you prepare the regular pancake mixture and pour 2/3 of it in the pan in batches. Wait a little for them to get cook. Then, add about 1/2tsp of each: peanut butter and jelly in the center of the pancakes and add the remaining batter on top to seal. Wait a few minutes and flip the filled pancakes. After, let cook about 2minutes on medium heat. Finally, transfer them to the serving dish and you are ready to garnish them and eat them!
