Peaches and Cream Pancakes

| 53 Comments

It’s not every fruit that’s used as a term of endearment, favorable adjective, or controls 30% of my counterspace in the summer, but sweet, juicy peaches deserve the honor. You’re a peach, and life’s peachy keen, so let’s eat Peaches and Cream Pancakes in celebration.

Peaches and Cream PancakesI feel wrongfully punished by the brevity of peach season, an injustice I bear by purchasing peaches in irrational quantities every July. When I enter the checkout lane with my exploding bag of fruit, I assume the cashier believes I’m baking pies for a high school cafeteria, instead of feeding a household of two.

The peaches I don’t directly devour in their full-on, chin-dripping, finger-licking juicy glory—an attractive practice I’m sure my coworkers appreciate—find their way into our weekly menu. It’s peach ricotta pizza for dinner, peach shortcake for dessert, and Peaches and Cream Pancakes for breakfast.

Peaches and Cream Pancakes with Fresh Peaches and Greek YogurtThe “peach” in Peaches and Cream Pancakes is a honey peach compote that I blame for forcing me to buy yet another bag of peaches, which undoubtedly convinced the grocery cashier that I’m housing a family of fruit bats. I’m addicted. This peach compote is easy to make and tastes as sweet and lovely as a summer sunset. A drizzle of honey and pinch of ginger highlight the peaches’ natural flavor, and the juices concentrate so that the compote bursts with pure peach flavor.

I like plain yogurt because it lets the natural sweetness of the peach compote be the center of attention, but if you haven’t boarded the plain yogurt train just yet, vanilla yogurt works nicely too.

Healthy Peaches and Cream PancakesAnd now, the carbs! Bob’s Red Mill 10-Grain Pancakes are the tasty vehicle for our dreamy peaches and cream topping. I grew up on from-scratch pancakes and typically shy away from mixes, but Bob’s Red Mill pancake mixes are different. For one, the pancakes are ultra fluffy and taste amazing. For two, they are good for you. Not only are Bob’s 10-Grain Pancakes 100% whole grain, but also they incorporate a wide variety of flours I don’t normally keep on hand but enjoy, such as barley, rye, and even brown rice. The different grains give the pancakes a lightly nutty, complex flavor and provide extra protein, fiber, calcium, and omega-3s too.

Peaches and Cream Pancakes made with Bob's Red Mill 10 Grain Pancake MixAlong with the 10-grain mix, Bob’s cornmeal, high-fiber, and buckwheat pancakes are a few of my favorites, and you can find even more varieties here. I love flipping a big batch of pancakes on Sunday, then reheating the leftovers in the toaster before work. Monday morning? Blah. Monday morning with pancakes? Bring it.

A super stack of Peaches and Cream Pancakes begs to be made (and devoured) in your kitchen before summer ends. Be a peach and give them a try—missing this recipe would be the pits!

Peaches and Cream Pancakes

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Serving Size: Serves 3-4

Peaches and Cream Pancakes

Super fluffy pancakes topped with a heavenly honey peach compote and creamy Greek yogurt. A must make for summer breakfast!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound peaches
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, for grilling pancakes
  • Bob’s Red Mill 10-Grain Pancake Mix
  • Non-fat plain or vanilla Greek yogurt, for serving

Directions

  1. Peel peaches: Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Gently drop in peaches and let boil 30 seconds. Remove carefully with a slotted spoon and submerge immediately in a bowl of ice water. Peel the peaches with your fingers (the skins will slip off easily), then slice them into thick wedges.
  2. Combine the sliced peaches, water, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, and salt in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, then simmer, stirring often, until the peaches are tender and the compote is thick, about 12 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Heat butter in a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Prepare the pancakes according to package directions, keeping prepared batches warm in the oven until you are ready to serve.
  4. To serve: Top pancakes with yogurt, then the peach compote. Enjoy immediately

Notes

Leftover pancakes can be wrapped in foil and refrigerated for up to three days. Reheat in the toaster.

  1. Erin, you’re too funny! I agree that the grocery store probably thinks I’m reselling their fruit based on the quantities I’m buying. But it’s so good right now! I’ve never tried Bob’s pancake mix, but I cannot wait to try it.

  2. The peaches have been so good lately (minus the recall issue…). This looks like the perfect way to use the excess that I seem to find on my counter!

  3. Peaches and cream!!! Um, yes. These pancakes are a must!

  4. Fruity puns? You crazy, girl!
    Love the recipe! Full of amazing drippy juicy peaches and Greek yogurt. Yay protein!

  5. Peaches and cream is the story of my summer! Add a pancake = I’m dead.

  6. Ha I can only imagine what the cashier thinks about it when I check out with a gazillion blocks of cream cheese and a billion tons of butter. One week I kept forgetting things and ended up at the store three times – with the same cashier!

    Peaches will soon be in my kitchen, and I now know what’s for breakfast ;)

  7. Seriously, I want a big ol’ stack of these bad boys!!!

  8. Hi Erin, never used Bob’s pancake mix before, will have to give it a try, your pancakes look nice and fluffy for all the grain in the mix. Love this combination, screams summer!

  9. Ha, those judgy cashiers :) These pancakes look delicious, I just made pancakes for the first time in years and now I’m wondering why I waited so long. Love the peaches and cream combo.

  10. I just bought 2 kg of peaches and planning to make a streusel cake this weekend…now I have to save a few of them for this delicious pancake recipe.

  11. We’ve been eating tons of peaches lately! I wish I had a stack of these pancakes for breakfast!

  12. Loooove all the puns going on in this post girl :) Until recently I hadn’t been all that obsessed with peaches…now there’s no turning back! I have them in the house and cook with them all the time, definitely going to try these pancakes…because not only do they look delicious, but they involve peaches!!

  13. I agree, peach season is just too short!! I’ll be making all I can think of with peaches over the next few weeks then I hope to can some to enjoy in the winter :)

  14. I love all your puns too, Erin. Too funny. And I must try these pancakes with peaches and cream. Yum!

  15. Our peaches aren’t ready yet, but now I’m dying for some – I need that peach compote!!

  16. Love these pancakes and I would take the whole stack.

  17. Fresh peaches are one of my favourite things about summer – love this idea!

  18. Ugh, yes. I can’t even tell you how cheated I feel by the brevity of peach season… time to stop typing and head into the kitchen to make your awesome panackes!!!

  19. I gorge myself on fresh peaches while they are in season! I think I went a bit overboard and bought waaaaay to many than we can eat before they turn. I’ll have to make these pancakes as a special treat tomorrow and then freeze the rest ;)

  20. I can’t get enough of blueberries or peaches lately. Just got some fresh from the orchard.
    I’ve thought about blueberries in pancakes but never peaches. Great looking breakfast for sure!
    Pinned. :)

  21. My wife gets on my back for buying a whole flat of peaches while they are cheap and freezing them. Alas, I am a hoarder when it comes to summer fruit. ^.^

  22. Oh wow, these look absolutely fantastic!! Peaches and cream is such a heavenly flavor combo, and one that I have yet to try in/on pancakes – looking forward to it, though :D

  23. Haha, I go crazy purchasing fruits. Right now, I have so much fruit I’m feeling that I can only eat fruit. Haha
    These pancakes look amazing! I love peaches and cream, so I definitely need to try this recipe :D

    • SAME Cindy! What’s worse is that Ben doesn’t really eat it unless I bake it into a dessert with a ton of crust, so I’m flying solo over here. Not that I mind too much…

  24. I just love peach season!! Great recipe!

  25. Awhhh… I cant wait for peach season, oh how I adore them. Lovely recipe Erin, I will have to use the tinned variety for a few more months.

    • I look forward to it every single year Anna! I think it must be why I also hoard summer fruit jam. It’s great to have a taste of it in the winter, kind of like your tinned peaches!

  26. Oh I adore peach season! What a fabulous treat to enjoy those peaches!!

  27. Ugh, that peach compote sounds to die for! I adore peaches, but I’m such a peach-hog I just eat most of them straight before I can get any into a recipe (I grilled some and threw them on a plate a couple weeks ago and called it a “salad” — yeah, that’s how lazy I am). But seriously? This compote might make me a changed woman (especially if it means I can extend peach season just a little by canning them)!

  28. I was JUST talking about how I’m craving pancakes! These are making me want them even more, just perfect!

  29. Uhm, this is amazing. LOVE peaches and cream… and hey, love pancakes too. Together = pure bliss

  30. With the short peach season, I’m buying them by the bag load and slicing and freezing them for later. Because I need to make these pancakes ASAP!!

  31. I love the peach compote in this recipe! I fear that I’d make this and forget all about making the pancakes :) I love Bob’s Red Mill products and will need to try the pancake mix!

    • Thanks so much! I have been so impressed with their mixes, and if you like Bob’s other products, you should definitely keep an eye out for them. Also, let’s put peach compote on everything forever and ever amen :-)

  32. Gorgeous photos! I totally agree, peach season is TOO short. In Texas at least you can get decent peaches for a little longer. Up north they go away waaay too quickly.

  33. Ugh! I could just die. I LOVE peaches n’ cream everything, and love putting yogurt on my pancakes. Also love me some BRM pancake mix. So fluffy, so delicioso! Beautiful stack, my dear!

  34. I look forward to peach season all year. Pancakes sound like a great recipe for them to shine. These look amazing!

  35. Things I need: That compote and a spoon. That’ll be all!

  36. You peach topping wonderful and I love the bit of cinammon and ginger in the batter. Please bring this by Foodie Friday today. I know others will enjoy it too.

  37. I need these in my life!! They look delicious!

  38. Love this! Thanks for linking up with What’s Cookin’ Wednesday!

  39. Yumm!! Made these for breakfast over the weekend and turned out so good! The amount was just right for me and my husband – two large peaches. Think this recipe could be great with other fruits too depending on the season… Apples, plums, figs… Thanks for sharing a great recipe Erin!!

    • Ana, I’m so excited to hear that you guys enjoyed this recipe! Can I come over for breakfast? ;-) I think it’s a great idea to switch it up with different fruits, and I’m going to do that too! Thanks so much for taking time to let me know how the recipe turned out. It means a lot!

  40. Peaches and cream pancakes?! Yes, pah-lease!! :) This stack looks totally scrumptious!

  41. Made these for brunch last Saturday with my boyfriend — peaches are his favorite and we just LOVED this! We will definitely be making again!
