Stir in the vegetable oil and milk until it is a smooth mixture. You can use soy milk and make this recipe completely vegan!

Drop a dollop of peanut butter down into the center and press it into the batter (I should have pushed this in a little more, you want the PB to be mostly covered in batter).
