Solar Baked Peaches

A few days ago, my husband came in with a huge box of peaches and a huge box of apples that he bought from a friend who’s church was selling them as a fundraiser.  We have been very busy putting up that fruit.  We have frozen, dehydrated, cooked, and eaten most of it.  But today, there were a few peaches left over; and I wanted to make a quick easy dessert that wouldn’t completely send my diet out the window and my husband’s blood sugar out the roof.  I found this nice little recipe on Peach Depot for baked peaches that fit the bill perfectly.  They also suggest adding blueberries on top of the peaches.  Made me wish I had some blueberries.

Solar Baked peaches

2 fresh peaches
2 tsp. butter, divided
2- 3 tsp. brown sugar, divided
sprinkling of cinnamon
whipped cream, yogurt, or whipped dessert topping, optional

Pre-heat the solar oven while preparing the ingredients. 

Rinse peaches to wash, halve the peaches, and remove the pits. Place the peaches, peel side down in a baking dish.

Place about 1/2 tsp. butter in the hollow of each peach and on top of each dab of butter sprinkle about 1 1/2 tsp. brown sugar.

Bake peaches uncovered in the solar oven for about 1 hour or until the peaches are tender.

This is a quick cooking dish.  Be careful not to overcook the peaches.

Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream, yogurt, or whipped dessert topping (optional).  I served mine warm with vanilla ice cream.  OHHHHH! SO GOOD!  (Opps!! Forgot to get a picture of the peaches with the ice cream)

  1. I’ve never been a fan of cooked peaches (my husband adored them!) but you might have converted me with this recipe! Thanks for sharing. Can’t wait to try it!
