Pancakes are one of those classic breakfast dishes that never seem to go out of style.

They’re simple, versatile, and endlessly customizable.

Whether you like them plain, with berries, or slathered in syrup, there’s a pancake recipe for everyone.

In this particular recipe, we’re mixing things up by adding warm maple-flavored peaches, pecans, and a delicious creamy topping made with cream cheese, Greek yogurt, and vanilla.

And using buttermilk in pancakes gives them a soft, light, and airy texture, which is simply divine.


Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe

While most ingredients can be bought in grocery stores, for your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients and equipment needed for this recipe have been linked to Amazon or other stores if available online.

It may not include staple ingredients such as oil, salt, sugar, etc., as you’re likely to have those in your kitchen. The complete list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. Please note, you can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).
