Buttermilk Vanilla Bean Pancakes for the Husband

My husband and kids adore pancakes. That is what they ask for almost every Saturday and Sunday. I try to switch it up and make the pancakes different. I posted my oven pancake burrito (It was one of my first post). It is the family favorite. I have not been able to replace that as a fav. But this is now a close second. Enjoy.

Buttermilk Vanilla Bean Pancakes
2 egg
6 tbs vanilla sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 cup buttermilk
3 cup all purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
2 tbs veg oil
2 tsp vanilla paste

1. Cream the eggs, sugar, vanilla cream and oil together. Add the buttermilk.
2. Add 1 cp. at a time of flour and add the baking powder.
3. Cook....I added about 1/2 cp. of batter per time.

Peach Cinnamon Jam

I had a few people ask for my Peach Cinnamon Jam. I am obliging. This is by far my favorite that I have made this year. I have made blueberry, strawberry, peach and peach cinnamon this year. I want to try try blueberry vanilla or a jam with vanilla. I am definitely making peach cinnamon again before peaches are out of season. I give a lot of my jams away to my close friends. I keep a few jars for myself. I must admit, I think I have an addiction. It is so much fun to make homemade jam.

Peach Cinnamon Jam
4 cps. Pureed Peach Jam (10-12 peaches, skinned and cored)
5 cps. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 box of surejell
1. Sanitize the jars. Wash them and dry them and then boil the jars, lids, and rings.
2. Puree the peaches in a food processor and then add to a large pan (Remember it will expand)
Add the cinnamon and surejell. Stir. Add one cup of sugar at a time and stir. When you have all of the sugar added let it rapidly boil for 2-3 minutes. Turn heat off.
3.The jars should be in a boil bath. The jars in a pan and water half up the glasses with a small boil. Add the jam (I use a soup ladle). Whip the lip add the hot lids and rings. (I used tongs)
Let boil in the bath for a few minutes. Remove.
