Gluten Free Peach Pancakes with Peach Topping
2013 – Gluten Free Living
Gluten Free Peach Pancakes with Peach Topping are so mouthwatering you won’t be able to stop eating them! Okay, I admit I went over the top on the Peach Topping for these pancakes and ladled it on so thickly you can hardly see the pancakes for all the topping!
Peaches are my favorite fruit and when I saw peaches at the grocery store in March I succumbed and bought a bunch of them. They were actually quite tasty for this time of the year, too. They must have brought them in from South America or somewhere. Anyway, I love peaches and not just plain either. I’m always on the look out for ways to include peaches in recipes.
I had a hankering for pancakes a couple of weeks ago (and I don’t think there’s ever a time when I don’t crave pancakes!) but I have been trying to come up with healthier options, such as gluten free flour, honey and maple syrup as substitutes for sugar or corn syrup, and more fruit instead of my favorite, [ahem] chocolate chips! (Yes, I’ve made those recently and the recipe will get posted eventually).
So when I remembered the peaches in my refrigerator the other day I decided to give it a whirl and make up some peach pancakes and a peach topping. I am so glad I did. Even though I ladled too much topping on these pancakes they were fantastic! If you aren’t as addicted to peaches as I am just serve them with maple syrup instead–but you will be depriving yourself of a really delicious topping if you do!
If you’re tired of plain pancakes with corn syrup for breakfast every time, why not consider this healthier, mouth-watering, and fun option? You’re family will be glad to be treated to these marvelous pancakes the next time you have a big family breakfast–or decide to make them for dinner instead!
Enjoy the wonderful tastes of cinnamon, vanilla, honey and peaches cooked into a compote-type sauce and spooned over lots of fluffy pancakes! What’s not to love? If you like fruity pancakes and especially peaches you will find these pancakes divine!
When I initially posted this recipe in March 2013, it was before I began taking pictures with my new Canon camera. As a result, I’ve been going back through all my first year blog recipes and remaking them so I can get more eye-appealing pictures.
I recently remade Gluten Free Peach Pancakes with Peach Topping for breakfast (June 2015) and, again, I savored every bite. My recommendation? Just close your eyes and enjoy every mouthful. 🙂
I ate every bite of these delicious Gluten Free Peach Pancakes with Peach Topping!
If you’re looking for a gluten free pancake recipe this one allows you the enjoyment of pancakes without the side effects of gluten.
Lots of delicious peaches are incorporated into this fruity topping, plus there are peaches in the pancakes!
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the pancakes.
Place gluten free flour in a mixing bowl. Add coconut oil, cinnamon, an egg and vanilla.
Add 2% milk and fresh, diced peaches.
Stir or whisk ingredients to combine.
Lightly oil skillet with coconut oil. Add pancake batter and cook over medium heat about 5 minutes, or until bubbles form on the surface and pancake is almost cooked through.
Turn pancake over and cook remaining side about 1-2 minutes. Stack pancakes on plates. Keep warm while making topping.
I used these ingredients to make the topping.
Peel and dice peaches. I used 3 of them for the topping and 1 for the pancake batter. To make the topping: place diced peaches in a saucepan. Add cinnamon, vanilla and honey. Stir to combine. Heat over medium heat about 10 minutes. Continue stirring while the sauce thickens slightly. As the sauce was simmering I mashed down the peaches with a potato masher.
Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens. Turn heat to low. Keep topping warm.
Just before you’re ready to serve the pancakes, pour Peach Topping mixture into a gravy boat.
The Peach Topping has a really nice, thick and chunky consistency.
To serve: place pancakes on a plate. Top with some of the peach topping.
I love peaches and as you can tell I slopped on a lot of Peach Topping!
These pancakes were delicious–down to the last bite.
Gluten Free Peach Pancakes with Peach Topping are a great treat for any holiday breakfast. Plus they are certainly healthier than most pancake options.
