To peel the peaches needed for this recipe simply immerse them in boiling water for 3o seconds then transfer them to a bowl of cold water. The skin will slide right off.
Sun Oven Peach Pudding
(adapted for the Sun Oven from A Taste of Home)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar, divided
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup milk
3 cups sliced peeled fresh peaches (or frozen)
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon almond extract
Whipped cream for serving
Set Sun Oven out to preheat. Spray an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray, set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, 1/2 cup of the sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon. Stir in the milk until just combined. Fold in the peaches and spread the mixture out in the prepared baking pan. In a saucepan, combine the water, remaining 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar, and butter. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring until the sugars dissolve. Remove from heat and stir in the almond extract. Pour the mixture over the peach mixture. Transfer to the Sun Oven and bake until bubbly and a toothpick inserted into the topping comes out clean, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Serve warm or at room temperature with whipped cream.
