The author’s favorite recipe from The Peach Truck cookbook
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chopped peaches and 1 tablespoon of the granulated sugar and cook, stirring often, until the peaches begin to brown, about 3 minutes. Remove the peaches from skillet and wipe the skillet clean. Place the skillet in the hot oven for 10 minutes.
Blend the eggs, milk, flour, remaining 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, and the salt in a blender until smooth. Add the remaining 4 tablespoons butter to the skillet and swirl the skillet until the butter has melted. Pour the batter over the melted butter in the hot skillet without mixing it in. Spoon the caramelized peaches on top of the batter. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until puffed and golden.
Serve immediately, topped with a dusting of powdered sugar and additional sliced fresh peaches if desired.
I source my peaches from Dickey Farms as they are the only shipper that hasn’t disappointed me. Others have arrived bruised and mealy, but not if they are shipped from Dickey Farms.
