Peaches are definitely a summertime favorite, so we created two bubbly peach recipes that you will definitely want to make.
And before we dive into these delicious peach recipes, did you know these fun peach facts?
Five Fun Peach Facts
- August is National Peach Month
- “The World’s Largest Peach Cobbler” is made every year in Georgia. The cobbler measures 11 feet by 5 feet.
- Georgia may be the state most well known for peaches, but it is not the state that grows the largest quantity of them.
- Peaches actually originated in China. And in ancient China, they were considered a symbol of long life and immortality.
- The saying “You’re a real peach” originated from the tradition of giving a peach to someone you liked.
And for a bonus fact…Peaches are incredibly nutritious. Not only are peaches high in fiber and potassium, but they also contain reasonable amounts of antioxidant vitamins A and C. So when you think about it, these recipes are perfectly healthy!
Bubbly Peach Recipes
These peach recipes were inspired not only by one of our favorite summertime fruits, but last year when we did our mini-bubbly tour in southwest Michigan we tried several sparkling peach wines. And you know I don’t like anything overly sweet, so when two bottles came home with me, I knew we had to create some amazing bubbly peach recipes for you.
These two recipes pair well together and can be made each on their own. It’s up to you how to enjoy them but they truly make a great brunch option or a delicious dessert.
Bubbly Peach Cobbler
I don’t know about you, but I would much rather have a cobbler than a pie any day. So we had to take a normal peach cobbler recipe and, of course, bubbly-ize it and let me just say, you will definitely want to try this while these peaches are in season.
- 4 peaches, sliced (about 3 cups)
- Bottle of Peach Sparkling Wine
For the batter:
- 4 T butter
- 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/4 cup Peach Sparkling Wine
- 1/2 T Ground cinnamon
- 1t Nutmeg
- Slice peaches (into 4 big chunks), peel them then dice them up into bite size pieces. Place them in a bowl and cover them with Peach Sparkling Wine for at least 2 hours or as long as overnight.
- In a large bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir in the Peach Sparkling Wine just until combined. Set aside.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Add sliced butter to the bottom of the 9×9 baking dish or a pie pan. Place the pan in the oven while it preheats, allowing the butter to melt. Once melted, remove the pan from the oven.
- Pour the mixture into the pan, over the melted butter and smooth it into an even layer.
- Spoon the peaches over the batter. Sprinkle more cinnamon if you’d like over the top.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes. Serve warm, top with a scoop of bubbly whipped cream.
TIP: If you can’t find Peach Sparkling Wine (we found our bottles at local wineries in Michigan, just grab a bottle of Spumante or extra dry (or even dry if you like really sweet) sparkling wine for that extra sweetness.
Just Peachy Bellini
Last year we created a series of bellini recipes that included a variety fruits, more than just the most well known peach bellini. And they’re all so darn good, but today, we’re creating this elevated peach bellini that pairs so perfectly with the bubbly peach cobbler recipe.
A peach bellini is really just a fancier mimosa and we’re going to take that even one step further with this peach bellini recipe. Not only is this elevated, it’s so darn simple and delicious.
Just Peachy Bellini
- 1-1 1/2 oz Crater Lake Sweet Ginger Vodka
- 1/4 c Peaches, diced
- Blend vodka and peaches until they make a puree.
- Add to your favorite champagne glass and top with Prosecco.
TIP: Crate Lake Spirits has some of my most favorite vodka and sadly for me liquor stores in the Chicago area don’t carry them, but I am able to order directly from their website. And yes, they are that good…no imitation will do.
TIP: Use leftover peaches marinating in peach sparkling wine for this recipe.
For mother’s day this year we made a Sparkling Raspberry Breakfast Cobbler that everyone loved. This would be amazing with peaches instead of raspberries if you want to stick to the peach theme.
I mentioned that Bellinis are just fancy mimosas, so if you’re looking for something more like a mimosa, check out these super easy perfect mimosas without juice.
