Peaches in Puff Pancake
This recipe was handed down to me by the previous owner of A Bed of Roses, Janis, and the first time I made it I thought it must be magic, because it is so simple but looks so dramatic, especially when it first comes out of the oven! (By special request from Sarah)
Peaches with Orange Sauce-
- 5-6 peeled and sliced fresh peaches or 1 bag of frozen peaches (don’t use canned peaches!)
- 2 Tbs sugar
- 2 tsp corn starch
- 2 Tbs butter
- 2 Tbs orange juice
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup flour
- a heavy dash of nutmeg
For the Sauce-
Place butter, corn starch and sugar in a large non-stick sauce pan along with peaches and sauté for 10 minutes until warmed through.
Add orange juice and vanilla and simmer for 5 minutes
For the Pancake-
Preheat oven to 425°
Spray 4 Texas muffin tins or ramekins of the same size with PAM.
Wisk the eggs, milk, flour and nutmeg together and pour into the prepared tins so that each is 2/3 – 3/4 full.
Bake for 25 minutes and watch the magic! They will deflate a little bit when they come out of the oven, but a natural hole will have formed in the middle of the “puff”.
Dust with confectioners sugar and place on plate. Pour warm peaches in orange sauce over the puffs, filling the hole and spilling over onto the plate. Garnish with and orange slice and fanned strawberry.
