Fancy Nectarine Pancakes

Every Sunday I make a special breakfast. Usually it is nothing really special, just the simple act of me getting up extra early to make a nice big breakfast is special, and Riley getting a break from her usual oatmeal & apple sauce or Gorilla Munch. Sunday breakfast is usually french toast, whole wheat pancakes or potatoes and eggs. nothing too fancy. But a few weeks ago while reading the Summer Travel Issue of Martha Stewart Living (which BTW was collecting dust since my recent obsession) I came across this recipe for Nectarine Pancakes! Fancy right!? I thought so. So I picked up some farm fresh nectarines from the Farmers Market and informed Ry and Riley that they were not to be eaten! Sunday came and I was so excited to make my family some extra special pancakes! they are super simple, super tasty, and very fancy. Enjoy! -Jess

Fancy Nectarine Pancakes, adapted from Martha Stewart Living (august issue) 

1 1/2 cups organic unsweetened soy milk (you can use regular milk too)
1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
3 1/2 Tbsp. organic sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
2 eggs, room temp
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 Tbsp. melted butter
2 Tbsp. Olive oil
2 nectarines, peeled and thinly sliced

 Combine milk and vinegar in measuring cup and set aside to curdle. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add eggs, vanilla, melted butter and oil to milk mixture and whisk together. whisk egg/milk mixture into flour mixture until lumps are gone. Heat some butter in a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. working in batches, pour in 1/3 cup batter per pancake, place 2 or 3 nectarine slices on top of each pancake. Cook until small bubbles form on surface, about 3 minutes, underside should be golden brown. Flip, and cook until brown. Serve with REAL maple syrup please! or some freshly made whipped cream! yumm...
