At the end of last month, I purchased  a partial bushel of peaches with the intent to freeze them. As I snacked on the juicy fruit, the desire to bake up a dessert overtook my previous intentions. I spotted this Fresh Peach Pudding Recipe in my emails, and made it for a family dinner!

Though this recipe was called a pudding, it’s more like a cobbler than a traditional pudding. But the technique is definitely unusual. Fresh peach slices are tossed with a cinnamon spiced mixture of flour, sugar, leavening and milk and placed in a casserole dish. Then a boiled sugar syrup is poured over the fruit before baking in a hot oven for nearly an hour. The aroma of peach pie filled my kitchen having to break a sweat rolling out a pie crust!

A Twist on Peach Cobbler

The first time I made this Peach Pudding was after my dear mother-in-law’s funeral. The time surrounded by our wonderful family provided much-needed comfort, but I was still exhausted upon our return home. At least that’s where I’m placing the blame as I forgot to add the milk to the batter.

The results were still delicious, much like a peach cobbler, but I remade it to make sure it worked properly as written. The looser batter was definitely an improvement. If you want a new stone fruit recipe, this “cobbler” is a winner.

  6. I am such a sucker for peaches, Liz. Just can’t get enough. Your pudding/cobbler looks divine. I imagine it warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

  7. I love this peach pudding Lizzy and I can’t wait we have peaches here. Look delicious!!

  8. Anything with cobbler-esque components in the midst of it is a must-try in my book! So glad you didn’t freeze those peaches–this looks divine!

  9. Uh, that looks DIVINE. Had it been me baking post-funeral, I suspect I would have left out the peaches. That’s just how my brain is. When stressed, I get super sleepy and can’t function at all. Thus, I’m banned from the kitchen until things are under control…

  10. I love this peach pudding, it looks super yummy. I am with you on baking with peaches. I love baking with peaches.

  11. Thanks for this recipe~! Our peaches haven’t been great, but I’ll give some nectarines a try.

  12. Sorry to hear about your MIL. This peach pudding looks absolutely stunning and delicious. Love peaches in everything so I can tell I am gonna love this! 🙂

  13. The peaches were so good this year, beautiful peach pudding. So sorry about your MIL……

  14. I am sorry for your loss, Liz. I also lost two wonderful in-laws. 🙁 This peach pudding sounds absolutely delicious!

  15. I have never appreciated peaches because the ones we get over here (imported) are not at their optimum best. But I reckon, with added sugar and baked like that it would taste really good. A scoop or two of vanilla ice-cream would guarantee to make it go down real easy!

  16. Pudding as you probably knows is British English for dessert…And yours looks and sounds divine…And you are an angel to be so diligent and remake the peach wonder. Grieving and traveling does wear one down…Or at least that’s my experience. Sending prayers to you, Bill and your family <3

  17. It may be unusual but it looks great.

  18. This tempting dessert is yet another reminder that I didn’t get my fill of peaches this season.
