These  spectacular Oven Roasted Peach Cakes are a twist on the plum version Marcel Desaulniers  baked up for Julia Child.

Oven Roasted Peach Cakes 

I knew I had another post going up on the day that our first Tuesdays with Dorie post of September was to go live. When I opened my copy of Baking with Julia, I saw that the recipe was from Marcel Desaulniers, one of my favorite bakers.

I couldn’t NOT make it. We were leaving town for Labor Day weekend, but I had buttermilk in the fridge and 2 peaches in my fruit basket. I swapped out the plums and made four oven roasted peach cakes whether we needed another dessert in the house (err, no) or not.

Desaulniers Did Not Disappoint

This buttery batter topped with ripe peaches created mini masterpieces. The final sprinkling of brown sugar assisted the juices in caramelizing and resulted in these most delectable mini-cakes. These could easily be glammed up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. So if you have any stone fruit in the house, bake up your version of these oven roasted peach cakes whether with plums, apricots, cherries, nectarines or, my favorite, peaches!
