Last week, I canned peaches. (You can findthe tutorial here.) After peeling the peaches and filling my jars, I had a few peeled peaches leftover. I put them in the fridge and then started thinking about what to do with them. I was in the mood for pancakes that day, but hadn't make any. So, I started to wonder about peach pancakes and how they would taste. I mentioned it to Maddy and she thought they sounded good, especially if I made a nice peach syrup to top them with. And so, that is how this recipe was born! (And, it is a really good way to use up a few extra peaches!)
Peach Syrup: I used my Magic Bullet, (Did you know that they have a new model that is less expensive than the old one used to be?) In the large mixing cup, I slice up 2 of the peeled peaches. Then I pureed them. There were just a few little chunks left.
Next, I put the puree into a small saucepan with about 3/4 cup of sugar. I stirred it all together over a low heat and let it simmer while I started mixing up the pancakes, stirring occasionally. You can see the results above. I think next time I will try it with a little cinnamon to see how that tastes. I loved this version though. That fresh peach taste really came through and was delicious.
(Pancake Batter: I simply used my favorite pancake batter recipe and added 1 peeled and diced peach. I don't like using a mix because to me they have a funny boxed taste. I like to make the batter from scratch, and it really doesn't take much longer than a mix. I use the pancake recipe from my Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, that I have written about before. Here is the link to the 75th Anniversary Edition.) I also added about 2 tsp. of cinnamon to the batter.
Pour your batter out on your hot griddle. (I love my cast iron griddle!) Because there are chunks of peaches in the batter, you will have to let them cook a little longer to cook through.
Finally, you just stack them up, butter them and pour on the warm peach syrup. The little bits of peach left in the syrup make it even more scrumptious!
Here is my guilty secret. Maddy was at work when I made these for my husband. We ate them all. So, she has yet to have any. Hmm, maybe I had better make some more right now! I hope you give them a try!
