AFAM-Peach Roundup - Time for some Peach Recipes


AFAM (A Fruit a Month) started by Maheshwari (Beyond The Usual) has cycled through a lot of hosts and fruits, and this time I was the Chosen One, and I in turn chose "The delectable Peach". Peaches or Nectarines are the juicy and fiber-rich fruits that resemble apples from outside, but have a large seed inside. I was a bit hesitant to choose Peach as this month's fruit because it's not easily available in India, and lots of my Indian blog friends couldn't participate because of this!:( I apologize for depriving them of this opportunity, and also to those where peaches were not in season!! I'll try selecting something more universal next time. But I'm happy and feel so good that even after all these odds, many of you went through tremendous efforts and used preserved or canned peaches and made something delicious out of them just to participate in my event!! That makes me feel so happy and loved. Thanks so much for all your efforts and for the lovely spread of peaches that you'll see below. I don't think any probable peach delicacy is missing out here!!

We start with a lovely Peach and Coconut Cake by Asha from "Foodie's Hope". These two flavors could never go wrong, and a piece of this cake is sure to melt in your mouth...

Arundhati from "the Singing Chef" sends in one of her bread creations called the Peach Aprcot Bread Pudding which has brown bread and milk and will not take much of your time to make this dessert pudding!

Kribha from "En Samayal Pakkam" sends us this lovely Peach-n-Caramel Pastry Puff that looks as visually appealing as the flavors inside!


Viji from "Vcuisine" dishes out a lovely Nectarine Jam recipe. I could eat with my bread and even with my parathas! Sure to be a hit with your kids...

Tee over at "Bhatukli" came up with this intoxicating Peach Sudharas that is sure to catch your attention. She also suggests some interesting variations at the end of the recipe...

TBC who writes at "The Budding Cook" sends in these absolutely gorgeous Peach and Mascarpone Phyllo Cups..beleive me, anyone who makes something with mascarpone is not a budding cook, and the pic says more than my words, right?!!



Sylvia shares her love for Peaches and desserts by sending in this fresh and vibrant Peach-Cream-Meringue and Sponge cake dessert dish that she calls "Chaja". She takes us through a wonderful journey full of peaches and all sweet things....





Swapna from "Swad of India", who is busy with her parents visiting her from India was kind enough to quickly conjure this Peach-Iced Tea which can freshen you up on a nice warm day!




Susan from the "Well-Seasoned cook" sends in this beautiful, out-of-this-world Peach and Rum Savarin. With all the perfect ingredients, it'll put you in seventh heaven!




Suma over at the "Veggie Platter" sends in a classic recipe with a twist - Peach-Saffron Shrikhand; a light yoghurt-based dish enhanced by the sweet taste of fresh peaches and saffron




Srivalli from "Cooking 4 all Seasons" used her imagination to chalk out these lovely Peach-topped Biscuits just so she could be saved from my wrath:) Well, they are so cute they could pacify anyone...


Sivani from "Ruchi Chuchu" sends in a lovely Peach Dessert recipe that she made to celebrate her little daughter's birthday....




Sirisha from "Ambrosia Flavors" sends in this lovely and colorful spread of Almond-Peach Muffins. If you can get eyes off her pic, check out the recipe which is very simple and tasty!




Siri from "Siri's Corner" shares with us An Ode to Peach, an informative read about peaches and nectarines and all the good things you might not have known!




Sig from "Live To Eat" shares with us the juicy, sweet and literally intoxicating Peach Margharita. I call her the cocktail queen, so you surely can't go wrong with this one...




Sharmi from the famous "Neivedyam" found time to make this Peach Tart with Sago Pudding just for this event and thanks to my "sweet nagging" as she puts it:) well, at least my nagging helped get my readers another beautiful dish...




Shandy, the queen of "Pastry Heaven" sends in 2 beautiful recipes. The Decadent Peach Cream Cake is a family tradition while the Peach Crisp is her favourite. So she shares both of these with our readers...truly a jackpot!!




Sangeeta from "Musical's Kitchen" sends in the sweet-spicy-tangy Nectarine Chutney that adds sizzle to this roundup! So if you need a break from all the sweet delicacies, try this chutney with anything to get a spark in your food....




RP from "My Workshop" carves out a lovely Upside-down Peach and Caramel cake. Judging from the ingredients and the pic, I think she's a pretty good carpenter!!!




Next in line are these lovely and healthy Peach-n-Pumpkin Muffins. One look and you'd want a piece from them! They come from Roops of the "Delectable Delights" Only trying them will tell you how good they are...




Richa from "As dear as Salt" sends in this beautiful Peach and Apricot Gallette, and though it was a bit older entry, I couldn't resist the temptation to include it in this event! After all, everyone deserves a nice recipe:)

Rajitha from "The Hunger Pangs" sends in another hit recipe- the Peach and Strawberry Cobbler, and one look at her soft and moist cobbler and you know she's a pro!!!


Pushpa from "Pusiva's Culinary Studio" shares with us Peach-Chicken as well as a delicious Peach Cake. That settles a full peach meal, I must say....


Padmaja from "Spicy Andhra" sends us these lovely Peach-n-Pistachio Mini Tarts. She made them for the first time, exclusively for this event, and I have to say they look very inviting!!


Zhulaiha from "One Haven" shares her love for peach by taking us to an imaginary world of "If Life were Peaches n Cream"...well, in that case, the world would be a sweet and delicious place, just like her dessert...


Noro from "Tour en Cuisine" sends us Coconut-flavored Rice Pudding with peach Compote, a light and frothy dessert drink. The rice and coconut add a nice zest to the peach making this worth a try for sure...


Mocha over at "Masala Box" shares with us this fresh Peach-Orange Salsa served in an equally beautiful and ethnic clay pot...chips or not, I would dig right into it....

Michelle from the "Greedy Gourmet" shares her recipe of Fresh Nectarines and Cream. Sometimes simple is all it needs to make things memorable, and this is a classic example!

Margot over at "Coffee and Vanilla" shares with us her version of the wonderful Peach Cake. It looks so much like a cheesecake I am tempted to try it right now....


Mandira from "Aahar" sends in this beautiful Peach Pancakes to liven up your morning. A sumptous fruit delight topped with syrup makes your holiday breakfast a special one!




Madhu from "Ruchii" creates a Peach and Strawberry Crumble. I personally love that combination as I think it'd be a good blend of sweet and tangy fruits for the cobbler...




Cakelaw from "The Laws of the Kitchen" shares with us his recipe of Peachy Muffins, again a treat any time of the day! With peach yoghurt and apple puree, they are a delight by themselves....




Kelly from "Kelly the Culinarian" made these Peach Spring Rolls for breakfast. I'd say this idea was fantastic as she was limited to making something very simple as she lives in school and has no oven or proper stove!! Kudos to you Kelly....

Kalva who authors "Curry In Kadai" dished out this egg and bread classic - Peach French Toast which will lift your mood in the morning and have you humming for the rest of the day....

Julie from "One Wall Kitchen" loves and adores peaches and was so happy when she heard about this event that she quickly dished out Baked Peaches with a spiced-vanilla-sugared syrup...what can I say?? the pic says it all!!!




Jai from "Jugalbandi" sends in this amazing and authentic recipe for Peach Streuselkuchen, a german layered cake. it's a mix-breed of a bread and a cake, but as long as it's tasty, we are up for it, right??!!




Irma from the "Irma 303" blog shares with us her recipe of Peach Yoghurt Pudding. Though it looks simple, I really love the way she shaped and presented it; kind of gives an air of extravagance to something simple....




Hima from "Sanckorama" sends in the Peach and Mix-Fruit Custard, again something that goes well with any meal or as a dessert. Healthy and easy to make, it can find a place in every kitchen ....




Finla, over at the "Happy Cook" went to great trouble to find some fresh peaches for my event and came up with this flavorful Peach-Raspberry-Almond Tart...with all these great ingredients inside, do we have any doubts about how amazing it would taste?!




Sikha over at "Rina's Recipes" sends in a beautiful Peach-Mango-Kesar Shake. Frankly, with these 3 things there's no way you could go wrong, so this drink is surely a hit!!




Dhivya from the "Culinary Bazar" sends us her simple yet classic Peach Custard recipe; again a look into simplicity that can add a touch of class to something mundane...




Deepz from "Letz Cook" send us this tangy-sweet Peach Bhel that looks healthy, crunchy and delicious.




Deepa over at "Deepa's Kitchen" sends in the famous Peach Cobbler recipe which needs no recommendation. Just top it with whip cream or ice cream and you can't stop eating....




Viji from "The Daily Meals" sends in a unique recipe for Peach Jam Biscuits. A lovely preserve recipe that can be used in multiple ways to sweeten any dish you want!




My friend Chris of "From Our Home to Yours" made this beautiful Peach Cobbler just for my event. And it looks so tasty too I asked her to send some in "literally" along with her email entry:)




Bee from Jugalbandi sends in the Indian classic Peach-Saffron Lassi, the yogurt-based drink that tastes more like a smoothie or milkshake. And served in a glass like that, I'd be open for second helpings!!!




The lovely Ayone from "Our Cuisine" sends us this Indo-Arabian Peach-Mushroom Stir Fry. She describes it as hot, sweet, salty and sour, and that's all the flavors you need from your food, right?




Next we have Chandrika, from Akshaypatra, who is also hosting AFAM Event next month, sending in this lovely Peach Tart, the only recipe that we were missing in the list:) Well, it looks so beautiful I could easily wear it if it were a dress!!



And finally, last, but not the least, a dish from the hostess herself! I present to you the Peach Malai (Cream ) Sandwich with Peach Kulfi. I know I know...it's great and fabulous and lovely and delicious....I'll just add to that and say that it resembles my readers, and I dedicate it to all my friends, readers and visitors who make blogging an enriching experience for me!!


Hoping to see you all at the next event that I host, and also those who missed this one but are waiting to hop on-board for the next one!!
