Bourbon Peach Pancakes topped with bourbon-soaked peaches make for the perfect weekend breakfast!

Bourbon Peach Pancakes

Give me the option to have booze in my food and I’ll always say yes. There’s something about combining liquor and food that feels so fun and festive. And the best of all combinations, bourbon + baked goods makes me squeal with delight.

So given that it’s the beginning of summer, I thought I’d turn to peaches for a little light and bright bourbon pairing. Pancakes were a natural choice. After all, boozy breakfast is a total crowd-pleaser. 

Bourbon Peach Pancakes topped with bourbon-soaked peaches make for the perfect weekend breakfast!

Can’t you just imagine waking up on a Sunday, pouring your morning coffee, and whipping up a batch of these babies? They take no time at all, and you can even soak the bourbon peaches overnight so that all you have to do in the morning is make the pancakes!

So here you have them, folks. Fluffy pancakes warmed by a touch of cinnamon and bursting with peaches, topped with the most delicious bourbon-soaked peaches on top.

If you wanted you could even add a little bourbon to your maple syrup. You know, for that extra wow factor. I’d recommend 1 tablespoon for every 1/2 cup of maple syrup.

  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • 1 large egg, room temperature

Instructions

    Make the bourbon-soaked peaches

    1. Place sliced peaches into a medium bowl (shallow preferred).
    2. In a small pot, combine the bourbon and sugar over high heat and cook until the sugar is completely dissolved and the mixture boils. Remove from heat and pour over the sliced peaches. Let sit for at least 30 minutes. When you're ready to serve, remove the peaches from the bourbon mixture using a slotted spoon.

    Make the pancakes

    1. Heat a large skillet on medium-low heat for about 10 minutes.
    2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt, whisking to combine. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, bourbon, egg, and vanilla. Slowly incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry with the whisk, mixing only until just combined.
    3. Pour ¼ cup batter mounds onto pan, then place 5-6 peach pieces on top of the batter. Cook for 2 minutes or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Carefully turn pancakes over; cook 1 minute or until bottoms are lightly browned. Repeat procedure with remaining batter.
    4. Top pancakes with bourbon-soaked peaches, then serve with a dollop of whipped cream and mint leaf!

    I asked people a couple weeks back what their favorite thing was about floating kitchen and I got like 10 responses that said they appreciated how I used alcohol in recipes. Ha! I guess it’s a universal crowd pleaser. These pancakes are so fluffy girl! Can you make these for me now that you’re here?

    Oooh, Sarah, I totally want these pancakes now! Bourbon and peaches just scream summer to me. I can’t wait until my local market carries peaches – I’ll be trying this recipe with them first! And look at that shot of the syrup just drizzling out of the bottle and down the pancakes – perfection!

    I made these pancakes this past weekend and subbed part of the flour amount listed with rye flour (I HAVE to use it up) and they were amazing. So tall and fluffy! This recipe is a winner.
