Easy Peach Pancake Recipe
Photography/Styling by my pal Emily Magee
Since moving to Nashville, so many people have told me about these famous Georgia peaches that make their way to Nashville. So, when I started seeing signs, Instagrams, etc. announcing the peaches arrival I knew I wanted to try them.
The peaches come in a large brown bag, and patience is not a virtue of mine, but you have to wait a few days until they're ripe and juicy to eat. So, I figured I'd organize a little celebration around the day they would be ready to go. I decided to throw a pancake party with a few friends.
I went the easy route as far as pancake mix, and just bought buttermilk Bisquick mix. To make the pancakes extra peachy, for each batch, I squeezed all the juice of one peach into the mix, then cut up 3 peaches, and folded in the pieces.
Next, I made some homemade cinnamon whipped cream. Also, warning I made it extra cinnamon-y given they were going on top of peach pancakes, so if you're not a cinnamon fan, feel free to cut the measurement back a bit:
Homemade Cinnamon Whipped Cream:
Whip 1 cup heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add 2 tablespoons sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, and 2 teaspoons of Mexican Vanilla. Beat until stiff peaks form.
It was so fun, simple, and easy to make! I even pulled out a few pieces of china that I had, because honestly who says china only needs to be for special occasions?
Also, I had aside from social media and signs, a few friends told me about how special the Peach Truck is! I love how community-oriented Nashville is in that way, when someone tells you about something special, you know it is. I didn't really know the Peach Truck's story, but via Instagram, I learned more about their journey, and now I'm even more a fan:
"Four years ago today we exchanged vows in our friend's backyard. The next weekend we parked our 1964 Jeep Gladiator in front of @imogenewillie and The Peach Truck was born. We spent this morning celebrating the last four years, and all that they have entailed. A one and a half year old, twins on the way, a business we could never have dreamed of. Grateful doesn't begin to describe the feeling in our hearts. Here's to a peachy, joyful Memorial Day weekend."
One thing I'm learning about Nashville is the beauty of seasons. I can't believe just a few months ago it was snowing, and now we're diving in to sweet Georgia peaches.
This definitely won't be my last bag from the Peach Truck, so would love to hear any of your favorite peach recipes!
