Peaches and Cream Pancakes

August 29, 2011

I refuse to believe Summer is coming to an end.

The only thing that’s comforting to me right now is the thought of early Fall.  Otherwise known as “the most perfect time of year.”

But until then, I’m hanging onto Summer like Hurricane Irene is about to take out Colorado tomorrow.

And nothing says Summer like fresh Colorado peaches.

And pancakes.

Creamy.

I’ve had some good pancake combos in the past, but these were the best. 

And I wouldn’t lie to you about a serious thing like pancakes.

Peaches and Cream Pancakes:

Serves 1.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash salt
  • 1/2 banana, cut into slices
  • 1/2 peach, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • Optional: toppings like maple syrup, nut butter thinned with almond milk, granola

Method:

  • In a bowl, mix flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  • Add banana, peaches, milk and cream and mix till smooth. 
  • Heat a pan and spray with non-stick spray.
  • Pour pancakes and cook till you can flip, then cook on the other side.

*You may need to add more milk to thin the batter out.

**Batter is safe to eat because it’s egg-free!

***Raw batter consumption also means your consuming alcohol.  I’m okay with it, if you are.

These turn out a gorgeous golden color.

The peaches are delectable.

The Bailey’s is detectable. 

Sweet, fruity, decadent, filling, delicious.

Need I say more?

I topped mine with some chocolate hazelnut butter I thinned with almond milk, then microwaved, plus a drizzle of maple syrup and a spoonful of granola.

Beanie: “When you make pancakes do you eat all of them?”

Me: Heck yes!

And how could you not?

Enjoy!

    Peaches and chocolate is an interesting combination! Though you do eat weird stuff like jam and tofu so I guess I should expect it from you. 🙂
    I thought I was ready for fall until today. It was gloomy and rainy this morning and that was pretty lame.

    I like the Nutella icing idea 🙂

    I love that you use Bailey’s in your breakfasts :] Reminds me of my recent obsession with using Kahlua in just about everything! the pancakes look awesome.
    i’m hanging onto summer…only because i know that once it’s over, fall will go by too fast and then i’ll be stuck with snow and cold :[

      I might just pick up some kahlua once my Bailey’s runs out 😛

    Girl I have got to get me some Bailey’s! I have two peaches that I need to use up like tomorrow so I just may have to throw them into oats…..no time for pancakes on a work morning 😦

      Funny you should say that because pancakes are my “quick” breakfast. I swear oatmeal cooking seems to take forever lately!

    Fantastic! this is definetly what I am making for breakie today! I have soo many peaches I still have to use up 🙂

    Peaches and cream sound like a perfect combination, although I would have never thought to add the chocolate. For some reason, peaches and chocolate just don’t go together very well in my mind, but who am I to question strange combinations. Uhm. Hello hummus and jam? Yeah.

    I’m actually ready for Fall. I love summer, and all, but Fall is definitely my favorite season… especially the first little bit of it when it’s still warm. Loooove.

      I totally had hummus and jam on a rice cake yesterday! Winning combo!

    Oh my god….those look amazing. Maybe if I make them my boyfriend will propose.
