The Food Network Star judge makes a ‘breakfast version of a childhood classic’ 

Giada De Laurentiis’ Silver Dollar Pancake Sandwiches

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. granulated sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. table salt
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 cup whole buttermilk, at room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Vegetable oil cooking spray
½ cup creamy almond butter
¼ cup strawberry jam
Powdered sugar, for dusting

1. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and egg in a large bowl. Slowly add buttermilk, whisking constantly until smooth. Stir in vanilla extract. Preheat a griddle or a large nonstick skillet on medium high, and lightly grease with cooking spray.

2. Working in batches, use a small scoop or ladle to drop 2 tablespoons of batter per pancake on hot griddle (being careful not to overcrowd). Cook pancakes until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a baking sheet, and tent with aluminum foil to keep warm.

3. To assemble, spread 1 tablespoon almond butter on each of half of the pancakes. Spoon 1 teaspoon strawberry jam on each of the remaining pancakes. Place pancakes together to form sandwiches. Dust with powdered sugar.
Makes: 10 sandwiches
Active time: 15 minutes
Total time: 15 minutes

Food Hack! “Cook all the pancakes ahead of time and freeze them,” says De Laurentiis. “In the morning, warm them in a toaster oven and assemble the sandwiches for a great meal on the run.”
