Recipe: Peach Cake, Muffins, and Pancakes

This is a 3 in 1 recipe that works for making a Peach Cake, Peach Pancakes and Peach Muffins. It’s the same recipe used 3 different ways.


A gluten-free peach recipe

This simple and versatile method has almond flour, egg, honey, peach, baking soda, and salt (not shown). So moist, it’s more like a “dessert bar.


Fresh-picked peaches by Peter, from the Adopt-a-Tree program at Masumoto Family Farm, near Fresno, CA. This recipe was created for a SlowFood USA, LIVE demo.


Fellow members of Slow Food South Bay chapter encouraged me to do a Slow Food LIVE demo. Also, friend, Peter Ruddock, of Green Omnivore and president of Slow Food California, just returned from his 5th year of picking peaches at Masamoto Family Farm. He was eager to share the peaches and the “Adopt-a-Tree” program with the Slow Food community. So– we did a LIVE demo, together.


Our peach demo was on July 30, 2020. You can watch the episode here:
