Do recipes ever remind you of someone? This one made me think of my niece, Angie, The Jammie Girl. She is always thinking of something special to make her family.
I actually found this recipe in the book I'm reading now, The Body In The Gazebo by Katherine Hall Page. It is so easy and makes a really pretty presentation. The batter puffs up almost like a popover. My choice of fruit was determined by the fact I had over 10 pounds of Flat Yummy peaches on my kitchen counter.
Fruit Breakfast Puffs
4-5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
4 peach halves, fresh or canned, or pears, strawberries, or other fruit
4 large eggs
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup milk (whole, 2%, or 1%)
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Cover the bottom of 4 large (approx. 4 inches in diameter) ovenproof ramekins with 3-4 tables of the melted butter.
Place the peach, or other fruit, on top and set aside.
Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl and add the flour, sugar, milk, and orange juice, blending well.
Add the reserved tablespoon of melted butter and mix well again.
Divide the batter evenly among the ramekins and bake on a baking sheet for about 20 minutes or until puffed and golden. Serve immediately.
