No matter how old I get, pancakes will still be my favorite breakfast food. They are simple and sweet and remind me of Saturday mornings watching cartoons as a kid. Even though there is nothing wrong with plain, unadulterated pancakes, they might be my favorite breakfast food to experiment with. A great foundation to add whatever sorts of flavors I like. And being that it is summer and peaches are in full supply here in the South, it seemed like an obvious choice to me!
This also seemed like the perfect opportunity to try out a ricotta pancake recipe. A ricotta pancake batter is very similar to normal batter, except that part of the milk is replaced with ricotta cheese, making the resulting pancakes very creamy. Once the batter was mixed, I folded diced peaches directly into the it.
The pancakes themselves are creamier than normal pancakes, thanks to the ricotta. But they are still supper fluffy! With the peaches mixed directly into the batter, it ensures that there is a little piece of peach in each bite.
