Recipe: Easy Peach Skillet Blondies

This summer I feel extra lucky because, since we moved, we have a farmers’ market a block away from us every Wednesday. Several of the regional farms there sell freshly plucked peaches. And I am a huge fan of peaches. For the last few weeks I bought a small bowl of peaches every Wednesday and mostly snacked on them. While I have always loved peaches, I crave them even more now that I am pregnant. I guess they are not the worst food. I mean Rich eats them, too, while he absolutely dislikes my cravings of popcorn with pickle flavor …

Unfortunately, the peak of peach season is almost over. I can tell from the way my beloved peaches are slightly less plump week after week. But I always find ways to use even the last few supplies. Like in my peach skillet blondies. They are super easy to make. Even on a hot summer day in the City when I really don’t want to spend much time in the kitchen. I make them during the day so that they are cold by the time we eat dinner. These blondies make a wonderful dessert. They are fruity and gooey at the same time – and actually so good that we often spoon them right out of the skillet. While they go great with ice-cream, my current cravings ask more for peach blondies with some fresh peach.

Some advice:

  • Our skillet is about 25 cm (10 in.) in diameter.
  • If you don’t have a skillet, you can easily make the peach blondies in a square baking pan.
  • Make sure that you properly brown the butter. This is what creates the specific blondies flavor.
  • Don’t leave the blondies in the oven for too long. They lose their gooey-ness when they are overdone.
  • You could easily replace part of the sugar with white chocolate chips.
