Spiced Peach Pancakes

These Spiced Peach Pancakes are easy to make and taste delicious. They are light and fluffy American style pancakes with the addition of some mashed peaches and cinnamon. Peaches can be swapped for plums or nectarines. They are easy to make with kids too.

Tinned peaches work really well in this recipe as they are already prepared and inexpensive, otherwise use three very ripe peaches, but peel them first. Jars of preserved peaches also give a lovely flavour, but are obviously cost more. Save them for a grown up brunch.

Spiced Peach Pancakes taste lovely on their own but if you want to make them really special, serve with Greek yoghurt, honey and some caramelised peaches. SautΓ© some thinly sliced peaches in a little butter and brown sugar for a few minutes. Heavenly.

  • Time:  10 mins prep + 20 mins cooking (roughly)
  • Cost:  8p per pancake
  • Calories:  105 per pancake

Ingredients: 

For the Spiced Peach Pancakes:

  • 250g tinned peaches (this is a 410g tin drained) or see notes above
  • 1 egg
  • 225ml milk (I use skimmed)
  • 65g brown sugar
  • 1 generous teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 225g self raising flour
  • Butter for frying

To serve (optional):

  • Caramelised peach slices (see notes)
  • Greek yoghurt
  • Honey

Instructions: 

  1. Place the peaches in a large bowl and use a potato masher to mash them to an almost puree like consistency.
  2. Add the egg, milk, sugar, cinnamon and mix really well. Sieve the flour into the bowl and fold it in using a spatula.
  3. Heat a little butter in a frying pan over a medium heat. Spoon roughly 1 and a half tablespoons of the batter into the pan and smooth into a rough circle shape.
  4. After around 60 seconds, the pancake should look 'set' around the edges. Flip it over with a spatula and cook until golden.
  5. Repeat until all the batter is used up. Cook more than one at a time if you have room in your pan, and re-grease with butter between batches.
  6. Keep the pancakes warm until ready to serve. Enjoy them on their own or topped with caramelised peaches, Greek yoghurt and honey for a treat.
