Well, this morning was different from others in my weekly routine. I actually created some pancakes this a.m. I had a “hankering” for something sweet, yet not too sweet and I definitely wanted something fruity. So, I created Peach Pancakes.
Can you say YUM!!? This is a great quick pancake recipe using pancake mix and canned peaches. You could use fresh peaches if they’re in season.
Peach & Brown Sugar Pancakes
2 Tbs. shortening or butter
1 cup pancake or waffle mix
¾ cup milk
1 large egg
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
1 can peach slices, 2 Tbs. juice reserved
½ tsp. brown sugar
butter to taste (optional)
pancake syrup (optional)
Puree 3/4 can peaches by placing slices only, no juice in a blender or food processor. Pulse couple of times to get a chunky (apple sauce) texture.
Heat skillet or griddle on medium-high heat with shortening. In a small bowl or cup, whisk egg and oil. In medium mixing bowl, combine pancake mix, milk, egg and oil mixture and brown sugar. Whisk until smooth and bumpy. (Don’t mix too much, pancakes will be tough) Fold in peach puree.
Pour mixture into hot skillet a ¼ cup at a time to create large puddles of dough. Turn once, after bubbles appear in dough ovals. Cook in batches. Pancakes should be browned.
Serve on plates with butter and syrup (optional) and a few of the remaining peach slices on top of each mound of pancakes.
Note: shortening doesn’t burn as easily. Butter is fine to use.
