If you're looking for a fun and tasty way to cook up a bounty of peaches, why not serve them for breakfast? I had a bag of ripe peaches and wanted to use them before they spoiled, so this idea came to mind. It turns out that it proved to be a successful experiment. These pancakes contain the gentle flavor of cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla and are topped with warm, saucy cinnamon-nutmeg spiced peaches. As my daughter says, "Deeeeelicious!"

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat a large skillet or griddle to medium heat. Preheat oven to low heat (180 F - 200 F).
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, 1 teaspoons cinnamon and 1/8 teaspoons nutmeg.
  3. In another medium mixing bowl, whisk one egg until frothy. Then add milk, oil and vanilla extract; then whisk until combined.
  4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and whisk in the wet ingredients all at once.
  5. While cooking the pancakes, start the peach topping. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add peach slices, maple syrup, lemon juice, 1 teaspoons cinnamon and 1/8 teaspoons nutmeg; toss to coat evenly. Cook, stirring occasionally for 5 - 10 minutes or until peach slices have softened slightly, and a sauce is formed. Remove from heat and cover until ready to eat.
  6. Using a 1/4 cup sized measuring cup, pour pancake batter onto a hot, greased skillet/griddle over medium heat, leaving enough space between each pancake for them to expand.
  7. Cook for 2-4 minutes or until surface begins to bubble and edges appear slightly dry. Turn and cook for another 2 minutes until golden. To keep pancakes hot until ready to serve, place on a heat-resistant plate in the oven on low heat.
  8. Serve pancakes hot with peach topping.
