Peach Creme Fraiche Pancakes with Buttermilk Syrup

Sometimes I just need pancakes. I crave the comfort of pancakes from time to time because I rarely have them. I’ve shared with you before that my husband is not a breakfast fan and as a result, my breakfast repertoire is not fully developed. Fortunately, though, I can muster a pretty good waffle and a tasty pancake in a breakfast emergency.

I had ripe peaches on the counter and leftover buttermilk and homemade crème fraîche in the refrigerator. Delicious pancakes just seemed meant to be.

These are a special treat. Once you taste the buttery syrup over the peachy pancakes, you’ll see for yourself. I added a bit of white whole wheat flour and some ground flax seed to offset the indulgent ingredients. I just had to. It made me feel better about adding a second dose of syrup.

  1. I’ve been wanting to make pancakes ever since we got back from our trip in June! The thing was that we’re out of maple syrup and every trip to the store, I’d forget about that fact. Hello, buttermilk syrup??!!! Oh my. I’ll be trying this out for sure. Next train to pancake city!!

  2. I love pancakes and these look fantastic! The combo of flavors- sweet and juicy peach with nutty flax and whole wheat flour- sounds like a winner. By the way, it looks like you are missing an ingredient descriptor on the third one down…”1 1/2 tablespoons ???”

  3. I LOVE making pancakes of all kinds and have no idea why I don’t utilize peaches more often… These look and sound absolutely awesome!

  4. these sound amazing with the creme fraiche and buttermilk syrup! I have never had buttermilk syrup, but I have heard great things about it! will definitely have to try it out.

  5. Oh these sound like my dream pancakes! So good!

    P.S. Are you part of a CSA? I’m totally interested, but don’t know where to begin.
