Light and Fluffy Peach Pancakes

    40 min

    The secret to these light, moist and fluffy pancakes is the cottage cheese. They are lightly spiced with cinnamon and have a fruity dimension from the grated peach. Superb for a weekend brunch.

    What a fabulous use of fresh ripe peaches. This was excellent. I had to first assure my husband that there was nothing wrong with the “lumpy” batter, and no, I wasn’t trying to kill him. Once we tasted these delicious and light pancakes all thoughts turned to taking the next bite. I highly recommend this recipe.  -  27 Aug 2012


    Excellent! I have made this 3 times in thhe last 2 weeks. I added 1/4 c. ground flax for extra benefit. The kiddies love these and syrup is not required. No mess! These are very moist and great reheated as well. I did try this once with frozen blueberries and that worked as well but fresh peach is best. I will try other frozen fruit as the seasons change. Update - I've now made this at least a dozen time's and wanted to add that shredded apple is a VERY close 2nd substitution for fresh in-season peach. A little sprinkle pf cinnamon-sugar and you have a great start to your morning.  -  31 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These pancakes are sweet, light, fluffy, and...delicious! I didn't have a peach on-hand so I left it out and topped them with homemade blueberry syrup instead. Perfect served with a dollop of whipped cream!  -  24 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
