Several wonky things happened today:
1. Pia fell from the Monkey Bars and put her teeth through her lip. Saddest thing on earth to see her poor little fat lip and messed up mouth. She has been very brave, and lucky for everyone her teeth are just fine. A steady stream of advil, smoothies and attention have soothed her.
2. I was tidying up the kitchen and making Pia some soup while trying to figure out what to make for the rest of us, when I kept smelling something really good. Like really, really good. I kept thinking that the neighbors must be BBQing or something. But it seemed hard to pin down whether or not I was smelling something sweet or maybe ribs? Just couldn’t tell except that I was absolutely smitten.
Then I turned around and saw that the smell I was so enthralled with was the wooden spoon I used to stir the soup. It was on fire.
3. I also walked through a spider web with my face in the garden and I can’t stop feeling it allover my body. So gross.
4. And then I realized that the Olympics are over today, and I could have just about cried.
If there was ever a night to have Breakfast for Dinner, this was it. You know, sweet, comforting pancakes for dinner: pancakes filled with juicy peaches and sweet coconut- slathered in butter and syrup.
These definitely helped. If you need a stack too, this is how you make them:
Preheat your griddle to medium heat (350 degrees) or prepare a non-stick pan with vegetable oil.
Combine the dry ingredients well in a bowl, then add the egg, coconut milk, buttermilk and melted butter and whisk until well combined. When you are ready to cook the pancakes, make sure the pan is nice and hot and then generously grease it with vegetable oil.
Pour the batter out into round cakes and let cook about 30 seconds. Then add the peach slices and a sprinke of coconut. Flip when bubbles have surfaced on the batter.
Cook for about 30 seconds, or until the cakes have just cooked through. Serve hot with syrup and butter if desired.

I only wish I could hop right over to the super market and get all of these things for Breakfast at dinner tonight. Love the peach and coconut idea, they are beautiful.
poor sweet Pia! i hope she feels better soon…my hubby AND his brother both did the same thing and he still talks about it to this day!
Yikes! So did my brother in law- and still has a scar. it’s so bad. But thanks for thinking of her 🙂
I hate that it’s not the weekend, because I want these nooooow!! Only 5 more sleeps until these babies are in my belly!
ha! Perfect! Why do we all only let ourselves eat pancakes on the weekend?! so funny 🙂
I bet the peaches get all carmelized and yummy. I have never put peaches and coconut together – today could be the day!
Oh yes!!! These look amazing. I love peachy pancakes 🙂
I’m in love with these!! Have never had peach pancakes but these look amazing. And omgoodness about the spoon, sounds like something I would totally do!
Mmm.. peaches and pancakes! And poor Pia – kids can really scare the bejeezus out of you when they get hurt. Luckily her teeth are ok! Now just imagine if you had two boys – like me! When they were younger, it was like a crisis de jour. I barely survived it with my nerves intact.
Oh, I believe it Kelley! I always am thankful for the relative calmness of little girls- but I assume I will get my payback in the teenage years!
The important thing is that she gets back on those monkey bars! And tell her to watch her arms! In any case, I think these pancakes would soothe anyone. And I, too will miss the Olympics.
These peach pancakes are absolutely gorgeous. I hope Pia feels better soon!!
do you use the coconut milk in a can or the drinking kind in the cartons by the regular milk?
Hi Becca- I use the coconut milk in the can, be sure to shake it first and then also use the thick cream that sticks to the lid.
Oh my, sounds like you’ve had quite the day – hope the rest of the day goes well. Great pancakes to cheer everyone up!
Peaches AND coconut? I’m in!
Hi Heather, I just loved reading this post! I hope your little one gets right back on the monkey bars, if not today, perhaps tomorrow! 🙂 I, like you, absolutely adore pancakes for dinner in fact I dedicated an entire chapter of my cookbook, You Never Cook Alone, to just that! I can hardly wait to make these comforting stacks of love particularly with the pairing of peaches and coconut!
Thanks you so much Elise!! I can’t wait to read about all of your pancakes!
Two of my favorite flavors. Yum!
