Some summer mornings are just better than others!
I make no secret of the fact that we love spending time on decks - whether it is a boat deck, a cabin deck in the woods, or relaxing on the shady deck outside our home, some of our best memories involve time spent together outside. (I could also comment that "decking the halls" is a favorite too, but my kids would groan loudly!)
The little ones and I were up at the crack of dawn today, and after glancing at the fresh peaches that were perfectly ripe just waiting for me to do something with them, well, inspiration hit!
I make no apologies for all of the peach recipes I've been baking and posting this summer - for whatever reason, each crate we have picked up has been more sweet and wonderful than the last. So today, we are making and loving some Peaches & Cream Buttermilk Pancakes.
I've seen recipes for peach pancakes that involve cooking the peaches, but we prefer slices of sweet, fresh peaches in our stacks of warm and fluffy buttermilk pancakes!
This is our family-favorite go-to recipe for fluffy buttermilk pancakes. To make the fruit syrup, I simply add a tablespoon or two of water to my homemade Fresh Peach Preserves or Apricot Preserves and heat until warm. You could also use a jar of your favorite preserves, which really makes putting this together all the easier!
The sweetened fresh whipped cream is what really takes this breakfast over the top! After whipping fresh heavy cream and confectioners sugar to soft peaks, I add a tablespoon of cinnamon-sugar and beat for another minute or so.
After one bite, Katie announced that she would be dipping fresh fruit in this going forward - it is just so simple and good!
Perfectly fluffy buttermilk pancakes, spread with a quick shmear of butter, layered with fresh sweet peach slices, drizzled with fresh Peach Jam syrup, topped with a dollop of cinnamon-speckled sweet whipped cream, and garnished with a single slice of fresh peach - perfection!
I think we could eat these every weekend during the summer - or at least while the peaches keep coming in!
Don't these just scream summer?
Hope that you have a lazy summer day to make these and love them as much as we do!
