Use fresh, ripe peaches and Georgia pecans to make these Peach Pecan Pancakes for a special breakfast or brunch treat! Top with butter and syrup.

As everyone knows, Georgia is the “Peach State.” Even our vehicle license plates say so. The peach industry in Georgia has a very long tradition starting with the introduction of peaches by Franciscan monks on St. Simons and Cumberland Islands in 1571.

By the mid-1700s, peaches were being cultivated by the Cherokee Indians and by the time of the Civil War, many home orchards were flourishing.

Peaches were first shipped commercially out of the state in 1851. Georgia peach production peaked in the late 1920s and we’re now the third largest producer behind California and South Carolina. However, we still claim that title of Peach State and Georgia girls are still called “Georgia Peaches.”

In Georgia, fresh peach season runs from May through the end of September, so we still have some of the luscious gems available.

I used a few, along with another of Georgia’s largest crops, pecans, to make these Peach Pecan Pancakes.

How to Make Peach Pecan Pancakes:

Dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.

Sift together all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. You’ll notice that these pancakes use a mixture of flour and yellow cornmeal. The cornmeal gives them a really nice nutty background flavor and just a tiny bit of a crunchy texture.

Whisking together the wet ingredients.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter.

Adding wet ingredients to dry ingredients.

Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture whisking until just combined.

Stirring pecans into the batter.

Stir in the pecans. Let the batter rest a few minutes while you melt a small amount of butter on a griddle or in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.

Pancakes cooking on an electric griddle.

Place 3 peach wedges in a spoke-like fashion for each pancake onto the griddle. Pour 1/4 cup batter over each group of wedges to make a pancake.

(Yes, I got it backward as you can see in the photo. It does work better if you put the peach wedges down on the griddle first and then pour the batter over them. I made it work out anyway :-))

Cook the pancakes for 3-4 minutes or until the tops show bubbles.

Pancakes flipped to cook on the second side.

Flip the pancakes and cook the other side for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. If necessary, transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in a low oven while finishing all the pancakes.

Serve topped with butter and syrup or whipped cream.

  1. That’s a long peach season! Consider me very jealous. ;) And these pancakes look like the perfect way to start the day! I love the added pecans.

  2. What a great way to highlight those beautiful Georgia peaches and to change up the usual pancakes. Perfect for Sunday brunch!

  3. What a great combo! I love peaches. We had a few bushes in our yard when I was a kid, but now I always gravitate toward nectarines, especially the white ones. My husband’s aversion to peach fuzz made me switch. Can’t wait to make these pancakes, yum!

  4. I have had some delicious peaches in Georgia and now I am having a mad craving for your pancakes! These look fantastic, Lana…and love the addition of pecans. :)

  5. This is exactly what I want for breakfast this morning. Peaches and pecans are an awesome combo! When I went to Georgia for the first time, I hunted down fresh peaches, boiled peanuts, and pecans first thing.

    1. You just reminded me that it’s time to hunt down some green peanuts for boiled peanuts! Farmers are harvesting right about now and I always like to get some in the freezer for later in the year :-)
