Summer is the best time of the year because fresh, organic, local fruit is so readily available! This is a recipe I put together trying to stay with clean foods, local fresh fruit, and nut flour. I do not eat gluten free, but I love the way nut flours work in baked good. So this one is made using almond flour rather than wheat flour (but wheat would work fine) and I used very ripe fruit so didn't need all the sugar in other recipes. Turned out delicious! A definite keeper!
- 3 cups fresh peaches
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1⁄3 cup sucanat or 1⁄3 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2⁄3 cup almond flour or 2⁄3 cup flour
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1⁄4 cup hot water
- Bring a large pot of water to boil, and have a large bowl with cold (ice) water standing by. Drop the peaches into the boiling water one a time. Keep them in there for no more than a minute, then take out and immediately put into cold water. The skins will slide right off!
- Slice peaches into a prepared baking dish. Add blueberries. Mix 1 tsp of the cinnamon and all of the cornstarch. Note, I do not add additional sweetener to the fruit, but you might want to if they are not ripe, or not in season.
- Melt the butter and let it cool a bit. Mix together the baking powder, the additional cinnamon, sucanat (which is dried sugar cane juice and is AWESOME), almond flour (or you can go half almond flour with wheat flour, or just go with wheat flour), and butter. Add the hot water until it is the conisistency of a sweet bread batter. Pour over your fruit and bake at 425 for 30-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
