Peaches always make me smile! That’s one reason I tend to buy way too many when peach season arrives. This summer, I found an amazing buy one case, get one free deal at the Farmers Market. So guess who came home with two cases of peaches???
Since my youngest loves to bake, I asked him if he had any ideas for something new we could create with our bounty of peachy goodness. Without giving it a second thought, he immediately decided we should make peach cobbler donuts! I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it or not before – but he’s a bit of a “dough-nut” to say the least!
This recipe doesn’t venture too far from the others in it’s list of simple wholesome ingredients, making it a fun recipe for kids to help with – simply add the ingredients to your food processor and blend.
The recipe easily comes together to create a delicious cake-like donut … or light & fluffy MUFFIN … see more about that yummy option below …
Being a cookbook author and food blogger is not only fun, it also comes with some nice perks on occasion. For example, my friends over at KitchenAid were kind enough to come to my rescue last summer by sending me a new KitchenAid 11-cup Food Processor when my Cuisinart gave out right in the middle of recipe development for Everyday Grain-Free Baking.
This handy kitchen essential is put to work almost daily, as having a good food processor not only makes putting a recipe together a snap, it also performs a multitude of kitchen tasks from mixing and blending to chopping, slicing and shredding.
In the case of this scrumptious recipe, a food processor allows you to simply add all of the ingredients to one bowl – then blend and you’re ready to bake! I love it when a recipe is simple to make and simple to clean up!
Since this recipe was my sweet son’s brilliant idea, he gets the first bite! Of course, he didn’t stop at just one bite … and I’m betting your family won’t either! They’re seriously just too yummy!
Even better … this recipe can be used to make marvelous muffins too! Just add the batter to a muffin tin, as outlined in the recipe below, and enjoy the most amazing Perfectly Peachy Muffins! Yum!
