Peachy Heaven in a Ramekin
My husband crock potted a turkey in a bbq sauce he made himself. It was perfection on a roll.
After we let that settle in our tummies for a while, I decided to do something I've never done before: I made a recipe we saw on TV. See, we have a newly found food crush on Alton Brown (we're watching him right now!) and last week we watched one that was all about peaches. Coincidence? I happen to have a crisper tray full of peaches!
But what's this? I need a ramekin? I didn't have any, so I went out and bought some!
So here you go. Possibly the best dessert I've ever eaten, and definitely the best dessert I've ever made.
You put in there butter, brown sugar, peaches (mmmm!), crushed crystalized ginger (this is the key to this dessert), then a buttermilk cake mixture. It's super easy and it does NOT need ice cream. Check out the finished product:
Oh, um, what's this you say? Two people, 4 empty ramekins? Well, what can I say? It just wouldn't be as good reheated! We owed it to the Peach Upside-Down Cake to finish it tonight!
