Peachy recipe Inspiration

When I was a little girl, my mother would make me brown sugar pancakes, with homemade brown sugar peach syrup. When I got older, it became a nostalgic treat that I learned how to make my own. Use these gently spiced sweet peaches as a topping to elevate an indulgent breakfast or rich dessert

Peaches – the absolute star of this recipe. Peaches are sweet Peaches are a versatile fruit that can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. They are rich in vitamins A and C, as well as antioxidants that help combat free radicals in the body. When selecting peaches, it’s important to choose ones that are ripe, but not overripe. Look for peaches that are slightly soft to the touch and have a sweet, fragrant aroma.
Brown Sugar – Brown sugar is the not-so-secret ingredient that gives this topping its sweet and delicate flavor; it adds a hint of caramel richness and depth to the overall taste. With its warming and comforting qualities, brown sugar is the perfect way to bring out the sweetness of the peaches leaving a unique and delicious flavor. 
Cinnamon and Nutmeg – Adding a hint of cinnamon to the classic peach cobbler spices is an excellent way to enhance the flavor of the dish. A pinch of nutmeg and a sprinkle of or allspice can also bring out the sweetness of the peaches and add a unique depth of flavor. All of these ingredients work together to create an irresistible Southern-style dessert.
Salt – my great-grandmother told me always to add a pinch of salt to your desserts and it works every time! Helps to balance sweetness, add depth, and accentuate the flavors in the final dish.
Rodelle Paste, Vanilla, 4 Fl Oz

Specialty Ingredient(s)

Vanilla Bean Paste is an optional ingredient, but I love to use vanilla extract at the end of cooking the peaches. A quality vanilla extract adds to the depth of flavor and enhances the sweetness of the brown sugar. I love to use vanilla bean paste when possible. You can get my favorite brand on Amazon

Chef's Notes

This cobbler filling recipe is wonderfully simple, yet incredibly versatile. You can easily switch out the peaches for other fruits like apples, pears, plums, or even rhubarb. This simple filling can be used to top a variety of items, such as ice cream, hand pies, and even hot cereal, pancakes, or french toast. The peach filling also goes great with crumble topping for a quick and easy dessert. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even add some extra spices or flavors to your filling to give it an extra kick. And if you’re looking for a more indulgent treat, you could always add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of your favorite ice cream.
