Cook: 20 mins
- 3 plums, thinly sliced
- 4 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 cup butter, melted, plus more for greasing
- 3/4 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
- Maple syrup, warmed, for serving
- In a medium bowl, toss the plum slices with 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar and set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining 3 tablespoons sugar and the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, the eggs and 1/4 cup melted butter until combined. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients; pour the buttermilk mixture and pecans into the well and whisk until incorporated.
- Brush a nonstick griddle or skillet with butter and heat over medium heat. Working in batches, spoon 1/4 cup batter onto the griddle for each pancake. Gently press 3 plum slices into each pancake, lower the heat to medium-low and cook until golden brown on the bottom and the top is bubbling near the edges, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook for 2 more minutes. Serve with the maple syrup.
- Try your favorite nuts instead of pecans.
