They're simple to make and we start with a basic pancake recipe. Then we fold in fresh juicy peaches and white chocolate chips. We cook them in a pan until golden and serve them with a homemade maple peach compote for an extra dose of sweet peach flavor!
What's in peach pancakes?
Here's everything you'll need to make peach pancakes:
- Flour – a regular all-purpose flour is what we use.
- Sugar – granulated sugar or fine cane sugar are ideal for mixing evenly into the batter.
- Baking powder – to give these pancakes a nice rise.
- Milk – plain, unsweetened milk makes the base of the wet ingredients. You can also use dairy-free milk.
- Melted butter – butter adds a wonderful rich flavor to these pancakes.
- Peaches – look for fresh, ripe, juicy peaches.
- White chocolate chips – for a little something extra sweet that compliments the peach flavor.
- Peach compote, fresh peaches, and maple syrup – for serving
How to make peach pancakes
It's easy to make peach pancakes by following a few simple steps:
- Start with the dry ingredients. Whisk the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl.
- Next, in a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, milk, and melted butter.
- Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients being careful not to over-mix the batter. Fold in the peaches and white chocolate chips.
- Now heat up your pan or griddle and melt about ½ tablespoon of butter. Pour some pancake batter into the pan to cook the pancakes for about 3 minutes (or until they start to bubble at the top). Flip the pancake over and cook for another minute more.
- Keep the pancakes warm on an oven-safe plate or baking sheet in a warm oven while you cook the remaining pancakes. Serve them topped with maple syrup, fresh sliced peaches, and peach compote.
To make these pancakes extra special, serve them with our quick maple peach compote. It's the sweet peaches you see on top of the pancakes in the pictures, and it takes less than 10 minutes to make!
Tips for making the best peach pancakes
- For fluffy, tender pancakes, avoid over-mixing the batter. Stop stirring when only a few streaks of flour remain.
- You'll know the pancakes are ready to flip when they become dry at the edges and the top is covered in little air bubbles (about 3 minutes).
- If you cook pancakes one at a time, it will take you a long time before you're eating breakfast. To speed things up, use at least two pans at a time. We usually cook four pancakes at a time, using one pan on each element on our stove. If you have a griddle, this is the time to use it!
How do I store peach pancakes?
Store peach pancakes in a sealed container in the fridge, just like you would any other pancakes.
How long do they keep in the refrigerator?
These peach pancakes will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days. The juiciness of the peaches may make them a bit soggy when reheated, but they still taste delicious!
Can I use canned or frozen peaches?
Unfortunately no, they will be too juicy for the batter and result in soggy pancakes.
Can I make them dairy free?
To make this recipe dairy-free, swap the milk and butter for your favorite dairy-free alternative.
Can I use a cast iron skillet?
Definitely! Just be sure it's well-seasoned so it has a non-stick cooking surface.
