I love this time of year. Summer has always been my favorite time of the year, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve become a bit less tolerant of the heat. I love late summer and early fall because the weather is still beautiful, but the temperature seems to cool down a bit (bye bye noisy AC). Something else that I love about this time of the year is the wonderful produce that comes from the Okanagan. Specifically, the GORGEOUS peaches. My kiddos love peaches (I just canned 20 pounds of them to get us through the winter and spring) and at this time of the year we always have a big bowl of peaches on the counter.
Usually we just wash and slice them and eat them plain, occasionally we grill them on the BBQ and serve them hot and caramelized with a bit of french vanilla ice cream, but last weekend The Hubs told me that he wanted to try something new with them for breakfast, so I decided to experiment making a peach puff pancake.
My first attempt was delicious… but the texture was all wrong. My second attempt was delicious in taste and texture… the kids and The Hubs gobbled it up and gave it the Sew Creative seal of approval so I’m bringing it to you.
The peaches in the recipe get warm and release their juices, mixing with the brown sugar to create a delicious syrup for the pancake. I hope you like it!
Cast Iron Skillet Peach Puff Pancake Recipe
- 2 large peaches, skinned and chopped into 1 inch chunks (I cut the peach into eighths and then cut each of those slices into 3 pieces.)
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
- 2 tablespoons of butter or coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Put your cast iron frying pan in the oven to preheat as well.
- While oven is preheating peel and slice your peaches
- Combine flour, milk, eggs and vanilla in a bowl. Whisk until combined.
- When oven is done preheating place butter or coconut oil in cast iron frying pan and close the door for a minute giving the butter a chance to melt.
- Take your pan out of the oven, pour batter in, swirl around the pan, then put pan in the oven.
- Let pancake set in the oven for 5 minutes then add peaches to the top of the pancake, sprinkle with brown sugar and return to oven
- Cook for a further 10-15 minutes or until the pancake is golden brown.
- Remove from oven, slice and serve.
