ICC – Peach Cobbler Trifle

Well Dined | Peach Cobbler Trifle

I've joined a group called Improv Cooking Challenge, where each month 2 ingredients are chosen for us to make dishes with.  This month was peaches and cream - yum!  I scrolled through my saved recipes on Pinterest and found this Peach Cobbler Trifle that looked perfect for the challenge!

Pound cake is layered with a pudding mixture, peaches, and a crumble topping.  My trifle dish is actually a punch bowl, so I only made 2 layers.  But with a taller, narrower dish - you could make 3 layers.

I really liked that the pudding mixture used orange zest and sour cream to take it out of too sweet territory.  I added a pinch of salt to the crumble mixture and the peaches to help in this regard, too.

Apple Oat Muffins

Let's start the week out with something sweet, and not even that bad for you.  These muffins are mostly oats, held together by a little yogurt, and studded with chunks of delicious apples.  The are unbelievably moist and spiced with cinnamon.  Breakfast, dessert, whatever - these are going to get gobbled up fast.

I used braeburn apples, but any good baking apple will do.  Some stores have little signs that tell you which apples are good for what.

See what I mean?  There is more than 2x as much oats as there is flour.

The batter is very wet, but this is a good thing.  I would dice the apples smaller next time.

My husband practically inhaled these bad boys.  Seriously.  Go make these.  Right now.  I'll wait...  Did you make them?  Aren't you glad you did?

You can invite your neighbor over for muffins and hot chocolate.  I bet they'd love it.

They might even take one of the muffins you give them on an adventure to the airport.  Cuz who wants to eat airport food, right?
