My kids and I went peach picking and had a ton of wonderful peaches to use up! This is a recipe I found somewhere on line and tweaked a bunch. It is still high sugar, but is low fat. It also is not the prettiest looking dessert I have ever seen. But it is homey comfort food that tastes great! I actually used 1/3 cup splenda and 2/3 cup sugar with great results. Also, we used the 2 cups of peaches specified in the original recipe. But my husband said that next time he would like more peaches. (He ate most of it in 1 sitting so he definitely liked it, but I will try more peaches next time for him!)
- 2 cups sliced peaches
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 2 cups hot water
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup skim milk
- Combine the 1 cup sugar and hot water in a pan.
- Add the sliced peaches.
- Bring it to a boil.
- Make the dumplings by combining the flour, baking powder, 2 teaspoons sugar and salt.
- Then add the milk and mix.
- Mine was quite thin.
- Drop large spoonfuls onto the boiling syrup.
- It will sink.
- Cover and let boil for 20 minutes.
- Spoon it all out of the pan and let it sit.
- Serve warm or cold.
VERY EASY and VERY YUMMY! I used fresh halved apriums from my tree and they were WONDERFUL cooked in this! My only problem was that the sugar syrup boiled over at one point. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
I have had this recipe marked since March 28, 2006. Peaches have finally come into season and I got to make this wonderful recipe. I did increase the amount of peaches and used a little less milk than called for. This was served warm and topped with low-fat vanilla yogurt.
