Thick homemade peach filling for cake or cupcakes. Makes enough for one 8" round cake or one dozen generously filled cupcakes. I used it to fill vanilla cupcakes that were topped with stabilized whipped cream. They were a big hit!
3 cups ripe peaches (about 3 large peaches), peeled and diced
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
½ tbsp. corn starch
½ tbsp. water
Mix 1 ½ cup peaches, brown sugar, and lemon juice in small sauce pan. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Smash peaches with potato masher to break down into more of a puree. Add remaining peaches and simmer for an additional 5 minutes. Combine corn starch and water until smooth. Add cornstarch mixture to peaches. Simmer until thick. Chill in fridge.
