I picked up some peaches from the farmers market, so our desserts recently have been peach themed.
First up we have the Honey Peach upside down cake by hotpolkadot.
It was delicious. (And I'm saying that when I don't typically like fruit) My only concern is that my beautiful cake sunk when i took it out of the oven. Maybe I over mixed/ under cooked it?
Next up we have some Peach cupcakes. I made this recipe myself mostly because I'm tired of makeing 12 -24 cupcakes when There are only 2 of us eating them.
1 1/2 tbl butter
1/4 c. sugar
2 tbl brown sugar
1/4 tsp almond extract
2 peaches, skinned & pureed (3 tbl reserve excess for glaze)
1 egg lightly beaten
1 tbl plain yogurt or whole milk
3/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
Cream sugars and butter till combined.
Add yogurt, 3 tbl pureed peaches, egg, & almond extract
Combine Flour, baking powder & baking soda
Sift flour into butter mixture.
Bake 18-22 minutes.
Comments on this cupcake are, Next time i'm going to try and leave out the milk and add more peaches. It just didn't taste enough like peach. Also I'd like it to be more moist. This tasted more like a muffin than a cupcake to me, So I'm going to cut back on the flour.
Anyways I'm sure both of these recipes could be substitute d for any in season fruit. Play around with them and enjoy!
