Specialty Recipe

Fresh Peach Pancakes with Quick Strawberry-Peach Sauce

Ingredients
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup (packed) light brown sugar
1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1-1/3 cups milk
2 large eggs
4 Tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1 Tablespoon Grand Marnier or other orange liqueur
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 peaches, peeled, pitted, and cut into small dice
Quick Strawberry-Peach Sauce:
1 cup sliced strawberries
2 peaches, peeled, pitted, and coarsely cut
1 Tablespoon Grand Marnier
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Confectioners' sugar to taste

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder,* ginger, and cinnamon. In another bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, melted butter, Grand Marnier, and vanilla to blend thoroughly. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix with the whisk, stopping when everything is just combined (don't worry if the batter is bit lumpy). With a rubber spatula, gently fold in the peaches.

If necessary, lightly butter, oil, or spray your griddle or skillet. Preheat over medium heat or, if using an electric griddle, set to 350 degrees. If you want to hold the pancakes until serving time, preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Spoon 1/4 cup batter onto griddle for each pancake, allowing space for spreading.

*Always mix in baking powder just before cooking

Sauce: Place strawberries, peaches, Grand Marnier, and vanilla in a blender or a food processor fitted with the metal blade and whirl until smooth. Taste and add confectioners' sugar as needed. Store covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve; the sauce will keep for a day.

To serve: Squiggle some sauce on each plate (use a plastic bottle with screw-on tip, like ketchup or mustard dispensers). Overlap two or three pancakes on a plate, and top with butter and sauce, fresh berries, or fruit salad mix.
