When the grands spend the night with us breakfast is always a special treat. This breakfast turned out really fantastic and special. I already knew they liked peaches because they ate some fresh peaches last night for snacks. This morning instead of plain old pancakes I used a fritter recipe and added peaches. Wow, they are delicious.
I picked out two ripe peaches and peeled away the skin. You could leave the skin on but the texture is a little weird to me so I remove it. I used a small paring knife to cut the skinless peaches in half so I could remove the pits. It was a simple task to cut the remaining peach flesh into tiny little pieces and drop them right into the batter. The skillet with about an inch of vegetable oil was waiting and hot. A big tablespoon of peachy batter is a perfect size to drop into the skillet. They sizzled in the hot oil for a minute or two on each side before they were ladled onto a paper towel. While they were still hot Girl Grand helped me generously sprinkle on powdered sugar.
I ate mine hot and let my eyes roll toward heaven while the flavor seeped across my tongue. The grands are not into hot food so they let their fritters cool before rolling their eyes toward heaven!
