1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
Pinch of fine sea salt
1 cup whole milk
1 large egg
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons canola oil, plus more if needed
2 to 3 peaches, pitted and thinly sliced
Sorghum, cane or maple syrup, for accompaniment

Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt in a bowl. Combine the milk, egg, and butter in a large liquid measuring cup. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk jut until combined.

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

Heat an iron skillet over medium heat and lightly coat with canola oil. Add 2 peach slices, then ladle 1/4 cup of batter over the peaches for each pancake, cook only a few at a time.

Cook until the bubbles on top burst and the bottoms are golden brown, about 1 minute. Flip the pancakes and cook until golden brown, about 1 minute.

About Chef Noah

Noah was born in the village of Barnesville, Lawrence County, Tennessee in 1926. His parents were George and Rettie Belew. He was the fifth of six children born to his parents - four males and two females. Noah is the last living member of his Tennessee family. His parents were farmers. They owned a rocky-hilly farm of about 75 acres adjacent to Saw Creek in Barnesville. Their farm's working tools were mules, plows, wagons, hoes, etc. This was before tractors, and even if tractors were available, they could not have been used on the hills where the Belews farmed. Noah has come a long way since the days when he lived on the family farm. Today instead of pushing a plow, he cruises the Florida Gulf Coast, steering his shiny 21st Century Lincoln TownCar during the week and his Mercedes-Benz on weekends. He grows older and wiser, but he continues to be young-at-heart.
