Peach Compote/Filling

By sweets2thesweet

About This Recipe:

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.
