peach cornmeal pancakes


our local farmers' market opened on friday!  hooray for fresh fruits and veggies at great prices!

we stopped by the farmers' market on opening day, and we bought 5 huge zucchini, a bunch of green beans, and several peaches.

fresh summer peaches . . . need i say more?

there are so many recipes that we can make with these peaches, but we put them to good use on saturday morning in pancakes!


we peeled and diced the peaches and put them inside of cornmeal pancakes.  (remember when we made cornmeal waffles a few months ago?)

the fresh peaches got warm on the griddle, and they were absolutely delicious combined with the cornmeal.  we poured warm maple syrup over the top of the pancakes and they were so good!

I love the taste of fresh peaches. Not the hard rocks you get in the supermarket. I will try this recipe when I find some good peaches.
I like the peach work in the title the way it is variegated just like the color of the peaches.

These pancakes look really good. I agree with your mom about the artwork on the first photo. That photo is especially pretty; it makes the peaches and pancakes look really tempting.
