Recipe Thursday-Peach Pudding Cake

Posted on July 24th, 2013 | Posted in Breakfast and Brunch, Dessert, Recipes

Looking for a dish to incorporate fresh ripe peaches in to? I highly recommend Jamie Oliver’s Peach Pudding Cake. I wanted a recipe that used peaches and could be eaten as a breakfast birthday treat. This one fit the bill of still being a birthday cake, appropriate for breakfast and had juicy peaches in it!

Note, my peaches were not overly ripe, so do not be too concerned if you do not have the perfect peach, this actually helped minimize the dishes overall sweetness. The peaches however were still nice and flavorful from simmering them to make a syrup that is folded into the cake batter, giving it a pudding-texture!
