Peach Pancakes

When asked what my favorite season is, I can with most certainty respond "peach season." The ripe, delicious fruit is my absolute favorite. From June-August I top my cereal with them, I could eat my weight in my grandma's homemade peach ice cream, and they make a beautiful addition to savory dishes as well. 

In years past, I've topped my pancakes with sliced peaches, but this Sunday, thanks to a tip from Southern Living, my dad put the slices right in the pancakes. I thought peaches couldn't get any better, but it it turns out sauteing them in sizzling butter only accentuates the natural sweetness of the fruit and adds the perfect dose of caramelization.

Our version was certainly a more rustic take on Southern Living's recipe. We opted for buckwheat pancakes, and instead of using perfectly-placed peach slices, we kind of just chopped it up and went with it. I topped mine with butter and cinnamon sugar, naturally, but they were delicious plain or with syrup. 


  1. please don't hate me. but I've never had a peach. Canned peaches and their slimy texture creep me out. so I ask you, my favorite food {and peach} extraordinaire...should I try them fresh? and how should I eat them first? help!
