Rosa Parks is an icon of the American civil rights movement. While Mrs. Parks is known for her courage and defiance in the face of injustice, we know very little about the quieter aspects of her life. 

As it turns out, Mrs. Parks was not only a trailblazing activist, but also a mean chef who cherished the simple pleasures of home-cooked meals. Her Featherlite Pancakes were a beloved family recipe, passed down through generations.

Chef’s note: The peanut butter is a bit of a surprise ingredient, one might think it might be gluggy even? But no! These really are the most light as a feather pancakes you’ll ever eat. 


1 egg
1¼  c milk
⅓ c peanut butter, smooth
1 T vanilla essence
1 c white flour 
2 T baking powder 
½ t salt
2 T sugar
Butter and oil to fry


Lime juice 
Maple syrup 


Whisk together milk, egg, vanilla essence and peanut butter until well mixed. There will be little lumps of peanut butter in the mix. (Don’t worry about this.)

Sift dry ingredients into a bowl. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and slowly pour in the wet ingredients, whisking as you pour. Whisk until the batter is smooth. 

Leave the batter to sit, covered, for 15 minutes. 

Heat your Lil’ Legacy Pan on medium, until hot enough to sizzle butter, but not burn it. If you use a mix of butter and oil it’s less likely to burn. 

Ladle enough pancake mix into the pan to make one pancake. (Make it smaller than the pan’s base for easy flipping). Wait until bubbles appear evenly on the top of the pancake, flip over and cook for 30 seconds on the second side. 

Remove pancake from the pan to a serving plate and keep warm in a low oven as you repeat the cooking process until all the batter is used.   

To serve slice bananas, toss with a squeeze of lime juice and pile up on top of the pancake stack. Then, at the table, pour maple or golden syrup over the stack for maximum oooh ahhh effect! 

Thank you, Rosa. Beyond delicious.
