Tea Cakes – I love them. My fabulous Contributor Rochelle from Oh So Sweet Baker must have known that because she’s back today to bring you these AMAZING Bourbon Peach Tea Cakes that I absolutely CAN’T WAIT to try. Check them out – drool a little & then make some!!! Enjoy!
I’m back from my blog Oh So Sweet Baker with another recipe for you, which I’ll hope you’ll love.
Okay I seriously can’t get enough mini cakes right about now especially these bourbon peach cakes. They totally scream summer and since cake is in the top 5 of favourite desserts and peach in the top 5 of favourite fruits I knew I had to combine them together complete with a generous dousing of bourbon, because you can never go wrong with alcohol.
UK is full in summer mode. Sorry I lied. UK tbh doesn’t really have what everyone else calls summer. We have more of autumny spring weather with like 4 days out of the whole summer term actually sunny. Mini bourbon peach cakes bring the summer with them. The fresh, bright juicy flesh can brighten up anyone’s dull day with mini kick up the pants from the booze.
These are basically similar to my mini berry teacakes that I made the other day. First these are made with brown butter, can’t go wrong there, with a little hint of sage which works well with the hazel-nuttiness from the brown butter. Followed by lemon scented bourbon mascarpone and macerated peach slices making for a summer filled treat.
