Bonjour, mes amies! Je técris de Paris… Welcome to this month’s scrumptious Pinterest Challenge where we are making our favorite peach recipes for you!
How do we say “peach” in French?
If you are just coming over from Lynne at My Family Time for the first time, welcome! Lynne’s recipe looks totally delicious, doesn’t it?!! These challenges are so much fun and we have a great line up of goodies for your gastronomic pleasure.
The summer dessert I’ve chosen to make is super easy, takes just a few ingredients, and my version is mostly sugar free ~ perfect for anyone watching their sugars. It is a Peach Cobbler, similar to Lynne’s, but of course, mine is made in the microwave. Every recipe, even if similar, is always a different treat!
Cindy from County Road 407 has found the perfect photo for us to use as our inspiration. It comes from Organic Facts.net where Author Meenakshi Nagdeve in her article Health Benefits and Nutrition of Peach touts a ton of facts about why peaches are so good for us.
I won’t bore you with all those facts but a couple of important ones are that peaches provide us with anti-oxidants and beta-carotene for good eye health. As soon as I saw our inspiration photo, I knew right away that I would make this super easy Peach Cobbler Recipe using my now-vintage Tupperware Stack Cooker.
It is a simple summertime favorite ~ Peach Cobbler baked in the microwave! What could be easier AND not heat up the house?
As I begin writing this post, it was 107 degrees outside yesterday (7/18/22 and it is supposed to 100 F today (7/19/22). Way too hot to be turning on an oven indoors!
***North Texas has been up over 100 degrees since mid-June. Even here in Paris, France (where I currently am), this past week they had sweltering days of 106 F/41.1 C degrees on the day I was flying out from DFW. Europe is experiencing some of the worst heat they have ever had, and in countries where only a very few homes have air conditioning, but I digress… 😉
Here are the ingredients (my notes)
3 peaches cut up, the hard inside pith area cut off, and then cut into chunks
Substitute Monks Fruit sugar for the brown sugar; it is non-glycemic.
Add the rest like it says.
I added a little more oats and it helped absorb some of the water from the cooked peaches.
And here is the recipe
- Super easy to just cut up the peaches (I left my skins on as they were soft)
- toss on the honey and water mixture, blend to coat.
- dot with small pats of butter
- cook 5 – 7 min. on High in microwave. I cooked mine for only 5 minutes and it was perfect (using two soft and one hard peach).
- In a separate bowl, add oats, Monks Fruit sugar substitute (1:1 ratio), and All-spice
- Soften remaining butter in microwave (if hard like mine was from frig.; can’t leave on counter in summer… ants!) and add to dry ingredients. Smoosh in with the back of a fork (yep, smoosh! It’s a Southern thing. ;))
- Stir in chopped nuts (pecans!!!)
- Spoon over 2/3 of the oat mixture on top of the peaches
Dish the peach mixture into pretty serving bowls and top with the rest of the oat and nut crumble ~ dig in!!!
I totally wish I had grabbed more peaches as I took the leftovers to our Rebekah’s meeting later that evening after I made the cobbler. There was really only enough for everyone to just have a taste ~ 1/4 to 1/2 cup each. This included a friend who is in his 70’s with Type 1 diabetes.
Well, friends, that’s it! I hope you will pin my photos and/or this Pinterest pin to your boards, thank you!! And thank you to Cindy, as always, for hosting!!
Next up is Laura from Everyday Edits whose recipe I am sure is going to add to your subliminal desire to just run right out to the store for these delicious fruits!
Enjoy visiting everyone on this month’s peach recipe tour!!
