Tried + True: Caramelized Peaches + Cream with Toasted Crumble

caramelized-peaches-cream-crumbleI spotted this Caramelized Peaches + Cream with Toasted Crumble recipe over on Pinterest last week and immediately knew that it was going to become my next test project/recipe for the newly-minted Tried + True series.

caramelized-peaches-cream-crumble3Happily, the recipe was a huge success (I’ve actually made it twice now), so I get to share the results with you here today! Woot woot! The caramelized sauce paired with the fresh sweetness of the fruit, topped off with the crunch of topping is pure nirvana. I have a feeling this gem of a recipe is going to continue to be a Summertime regular in my home from here on out. And I know it’s dessert and all, but I’ve also enjoyed eating the leftover chilled fruit for breakfast…with yogurt (that makes it healthy right?).

Here are few notes from my experience:

  • Instead of the coconut cream, I whipped up some heavy whipping cream with a bit of granulated white sugar, and a splash of bourbon vanilla, for a delicious addition.
  • I also added a dash of bourbon vanilla to the peaches during the carmelization phase. Yum!
  • Because the caramelized peaches are very sweet (both from their natural sweetness and the brown sugar), I recommend not over-sweetening the cream.
  • Bonus…if you make sure to use gluten-free oats and gluten-free vanilla, this recipe is deliciously gluten-free

        I’d love to know what photo apps you use, what lighting you prefer, and if you do any further editing in Photoshop. The biggest issue I have with my iPhone is getting that perfect white balance – like what is in your photos above. Can’t wait to read your tips! :)
