Peach Banana Bliss Pancakes

by Joanne on September 5, 2010

It’s Sunday and a day to sleep in.  Shane allowed us to stay in bed until 6:30 today which was very kind of him. 

The three of us went for a 4 mile plus walk over to the college to grab a tennis ball Ted spotted yesterday.  We went to the golf course for a walk up the hills and around the path. There were quite a few people running and walking along the road but only one lone runner in the golf course.

The golfers were already out hitting long drives, some landing in the fairway, some in brush and some into the opposite fairway. Good and bad shots.  It was a sunny yet breezy day for walking.  Neither Ted nor I mentioned cycling and as we walked home I planned breakfast.

Peach Banana Bliss Pancakes – makes 10 to 12 depending on how large/small you make them.

  • 1 peach, chopped
  • 2 TBS Smart Balance Light or use butter
  • pinch or two of cinnamon
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 TBS baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 TBS granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream with 1/2 cup warm water
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 over ripe, mashed banana
  • Smart Balance or Butter  for cooking the pancakes *Add about 1 1/2 TBS per cooking batch (about 4 pancakes per batch)

Preheat a large sauté pan on medium – high heat and add the 2 TBS Smart Balance/butter until it melts.  Add the chopped peach pieces and cinnamon.  Cook about 4 – 5 minutes.  Remove and set aside.

In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.  Make a well in the middle and add the cream-water mix, milk, eggs, 1/2 of the peaches set aside from earlier and banana.  Mix until blended then give it a good whisking to incorporate a little air.

Preheat the pan over medium heat and add about 1 1/2 TBS Smart Balance/Butter.  When melted add pancake mix in about 1/4 cup servings per pancake.  Cook until bubbles form on the top then flip.  Cook about 2 to 3 more minutes until done.  They should be a nice golden brown.

To serve, top the pancakes with left over sauté peaches and syrup.  Garnish with fresh mint leaves.

Don’t be afraid of the heavy cream in these cakes.  Treat yourself just this one time…okay, it will be more than once because this recipe will become your fall back, ultimate pancake recipe.  Try using other fruit than peaches.

What other fruits pair well with bananas?

                How can Sunday not be spectacular when it starts with pancakes…and even better, pancakes topped with peaches and sweetened with bananas? Thanks for ending my Sunday on a sweet note!

                  What a great combo! I wish we got good peaches here but they tend to be mealy. As for other pairs, I think blackberries and bananas go nicely together in pancakes. Or chocolate chips!
