Baked Peaches

IMG_3945Hello friends– Breakfast last Saturday was a tableful of my young mom friends  for blueberry bran muffins, baked eggs, these baked peaches and a whole lot of talking and laughter.  We caught up with each other over breakfast and then set out on our route of thrift stores to see what we could find…  I just love those girls.  They couldn’t be more crazy fun!!  I good to share their fine, full, sometimes complicated lives and talk and pray together.

6 peaches, cut in half, pits removed
2 tab. sugar
1 tab. flour
pinch nutmeg
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
4 tab. cup butter
1/2 cup sliced almonds
Yogurt* to serve alongside

IMG_3938Mix together the 2 tab. sugar, 1 tab. flour and the pinch of nutmeg in a shallow bowl.  Then dredge the peaches in the sugar, flour mixture and set them cut side up on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper (or sprayed with cooking spray).

Then stir together the 1/3 cup sugar, 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 tsp. salt.  Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or food processor until coarse crumbs form.  Then stir in the almonds.  Spoon this mixture over the tops of the peaches.  Pop them into a 400 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until the peaches are tender and the topping is crispy.

*If you’re serving these for breakfast dish them up with a big spoonful of unflavored yogurt.  Or if you want to have them for a fruity dessert, pile on a mound of whipped cream instead.

  1. I’m so jealous of all that produce you guys get over in the states – the stone fruit we get here in singapore are usually picked while still hard, and are essentially crunchy tasteless things!
