When is the Peach Truck Coming Back to Western Kentucky?
The Peach Truck is back and juicier than ever. The summer tour will make stops all over the state, including Owensboro, Bowling Green, Paducah, and Elizabethtown. Here's how to pre-order and where to pick up hand-picked fresh peaches.
One of the best things about the summer season is taking a bite of fresh juicy peaches. How about peach cobbler, jam, pie, bread, salsa, lemonade, wine, or ice cream? SO many peach options for fruit lovers like us.
Those sweet juicy peaches are almost within reach. My favorite is peach ice cream, peach cobbler, and a delicious peach jam. There's a farmer's market in Michigan that makes the best peach jam ever. I stock up whenever I'm in town. I also love a great peach cobbler just like my Dad. It's the best dessert with some vanilla ice cream on top. Yum! There's just nothing better than a juicy peach on a hot summer day. Below we're sharing some delicious peach recipes for you to create for your family this summer. But, first. How to get some fresh peaches.
THE PEACH TRUCK SUMMER TOUR COMING TO KENTUCKY
The Peach Truck Tour is returning to Kentucky this summer with fresh juicy peaches.
"When people experience fruit from The Peach Truck, they are astounded by the delicious difference between freshly-picked produce compared to the offerings at their grocery store. The truth is, today’s mainstream methods to harvest and distribute food rob us of Mother Nature’s natural flavors and nutrients."
This is what customers have to say about their juicy peaches:
These are the best peaches I have had I didn’t even like peaches until I had my first peach from The Peach Truck!! They are fresh, delicious, and so juicy you need to stand over the sink when you bite into one. 100% worth the wait! - Tiffany Hamilton
I love these peaches. They are delicious. Very juicy. My family loves them also. Ordering more boxes this year. - Andrea Bell Thomas
I started with these peaches several years ago and couldn’t believe how good they were. For the first couple of years, I drove over 2 hours to get them but now they are much closer to home. I spend days baking with these yummy, juicy, delicious peaches. - Juanita Gingerich Friesen

PEACH MINI UPSIDE-DOWN CAKE RECIPE
Recently in our weekly What's Cookin'? segment, Patty Millay served up a picnic-ready dessert. It's Peach Mini Upside Down Cake. Here's how to make it.
This is the simplest thing in the world to make and you probably have the ingredients in your kitchen right now. This is perfect for a summer breakfast or even as a light dessert. I'm serving it at Concert on the Lawn in a couple of weeks! This is super portable and easy to pack! I hope you'll enjoy them as much as we did!
PEACH MINI UPSIDE-DOWN CAKE
1/3 cup, plus 1 tablespoon (90gr) unsalted butter, softened
6 teaspoons light brown sugar
1 ½ cups (190gr) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
2/3 cup (130gr) sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
½ cup (120ml) buttermilk
Preheat the oven to 350°F (177° C). Spray the muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Divide 1 tablespoon of butter equally into 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle ½ teaspoon of brown sugar into each muffin cup.
Slice 1-2 peaches into thin slices. Put about 3 slices into the bottom of each muffin pan.
Cut the remaining peaches into small cubes. You should get about 1 cup of cubed peaches. Set aside.
To make the batter, in a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a mixing bowl with a paddle attachment, beat the remaining 1/3 cup of butter and sugar together until creamy. Add egg and vanilla extract and beat for another 2-3 minutes, or until well combined. The mixture should be fluffy and white.
Add half of the flour mixture into the batter, and beat for 1 minute. Stir in the buttermilk and beat for another minute. Add the remaining flour mixture and beat just until combined. Fold in the cubed peaches.
Divide the batter into 12 muffin pan cups. I like to use an ice cream scooper.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Cool the cakes in the pan for 5 minutes. Place the wire rack over the muffin pan and carefully turn the pan upside down to remove the cakes. Cool completely before serving.
This is delicious on its own or you can sprinkle it with powdered sugar or serve it with vanilla ice cream! They will come back for seconds, I promise!
