We dropped the kidlets off at Nana & Fred's yesterday and in exchange, Nana handed me a beautiful basket of peaches freshly picked off their peach tree.
They were pretty tiny to hand peel as many as I needed, but I remembered that I had read about a quick peeling technique in the new edition of Edible Austin. You flash boil the peaches for 30 seconds and then throw them in an ice water bath.
The recipe for the Peach Buckle is the same as for the Blackberry Buckle, you just sub in 4 cups of peaches for the 4 cups of blackberries. In this case, I only had 3 1/2 cups of peaches, so I threw in a handful of blackberries to top it off. I also ran out of cinnamon (baking fail)...so I used pumpkin pie spice. Sounds weird, but it was actually tasty. I love the way the peaches caramelize across the top of the buckle.
