Millions of peaches, peaches for me…
Millions of peaches, peaches for free…
Any time I hear the word peaches, I immediately sing that President’s song in my head. That song was IT in middle school. So were the Spice Girls and Cake. In retrospect, we had a very interest taste in music.
Anyways, the past few weeks I’ve gotten peaches in my CSA box, but I’m not the biggest fan. My mom told me to make muffins but I was lazy & out of town on the weekends so I let them go to waste. However, today I was craving pancakes and decided to make peach pancakes. I slightly modified a basic pancake recipe from Martha Stewart. It turned out great – tasted like a slice of fresh peach pie. I served it with some maple syrup, eggs and thick cut bacon. Yum!
Fresh Peach Pancakes
1 C. all-purpose flour 1 Tbs sugar 1 Tbs brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp milk dash nutmeg
dash ground cloves 1/2 tsp vanilla 1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 C. milk 1 large egg 1 tbs oil/melted butter
1 C diced fresh peaches
(1) In a small bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. Set aside.
(2) In medium bowl, whisk together wet ingredients (except peaches). Slowly add dry ingredients and whisk until incorporated. There may still be some lumps and Martha says that’s okay.
(3) Add diced peaches to mix and give it a quick stir. Then cook as usual. However, be sure to push down to make sure batter cooks around the peaches. You can press down to see if they are done inside. It’s like a cake, if it springs back it’s done.
I’ll post pictures, but I should warn you that I make ugly pancakes. Also, I either severely burn or undercook them. Despite their ugly looks, these pancakes tasted awesome. Make these ASAP!
