Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes with Glazed Peaches

Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes with Glazed Peaches

It is berry season!  Lately my supermarkets and local fruit stands have had outstanding deals on produce (especially blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries).  I buy in bulk and freeze the extra for baking later.  It definitely comes in handy–like for this morning’s blueberry pancakes.  Top these fluffy wonders with glazed peaches and you are talking a seriously tasty breakfast.

Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes with Glazed Peaches

Serves 3-4

1 1/4 cup flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup sugar

1 egg, whisked

1/4 cup butter, melted

1 1/4 cup buttermilk

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup frozen blueberries–(frozen berries retain their shape better when mixed and don’t smush)

2 large peaches, sliced (about 2 cups)

Pam for cooking (you can use extra butter but the spray is very easy for batches of pancakes)

1 tablespoon marmelade

1 tablespoon of honey (optional)

powdered sugar for garnish

Turn your oven heat on to WARM and insert a large cookie sheet into the oven.  In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Next add in sugar and mix once more.  In another large bowl, combine egg, melted, cooled butter, buttermilk, and vanilla.  Mix well then add in blueberries.  Slowly begin to stir flour mixture into your wet ingredients until fully blended.  Let batter rest for several minutes as you prepare your peaches.

In a medium saute pan over low heat, spray pan then add peaches and marmelade.  Simmer on low and stir frequently to glaze and warm peaches (option: for added sweetness add a tablespoon of honey).

Next, in a large saute pan over medium heat, spray pam then add a dollop of pancake mixture.  Cook about 1-2 minutes per side until golden on bottom and small bubbles form on top and then flip your pancake and cook another 1-2  minutes on the reverse side.  Once pancake is cooked, add it to the cookie sheet in the oven to keep it warm as you finish making the rest of your pancakes (this way everyone gets a warm stack of pancakes to eat at the table).

To serve:  stack your pancakes 3 high and top with glazed peaches.  Then sprinkle on a light coating of powdered sugar and serve warm.  Enjoy!
