Peaches are Don’s favourite fruit and living here where they grow profusely is like living in paradise . Try this recipe and you will see for yourself.
This summer when peaches are ready, pull up this recipe and you can start your own love-in with them as well.
- 3 cups thinly sliced peaches
- 2-3 tbsp. dark brown sugar
- 1/3 cup orange juice
- 1 1/2 tsp. cornstarch
- large pinch of cinnamon
- 3/4 cup flour
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 – 3/4 cups milk
- 1/2 – 3/4 cups melted butter
- Whipped cream, of course, flavoured with almond, instead of vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine in a large bowl, peaches, brown sugar, orange juice, cornstarch and cinnamon.
Place the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in another bowl and whisk to mix. Stir in the milk to make a thin batter.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set out 6 ramekins. Divide and spoon out the melted butter into each of the ramekins. Divide and pour the batter over the melted butter.
Spoon the peaches and the juices carefully over the batter and bake for 20 minutes . The batter will puff up but make sure it is cooked through. Remove from the oven and let it stand for 3-4 minutes. Put a dollop of whipped cream on top and serve.
Put the ramekin on a pretty plate before taking to the table. It will look better and the hot dishes won’t mark your table.
Enjoy….it makes my mouth water just typing this up.
