At Escape Adventures, we love our desserts! On most camping and biking trips, dessert options usually fall somewhere between s’mores and more s’mores. Not that there’s anything wrong with the all-American campfire classic, but sometimes it’s nice to have a little variety on the menu. With that in mind, we would like to suggest this no-bake peach cobbler as a simple, yet tasty option for your next adventure.
Preparing dinner at a campsite can be enough of an ordeal on its own, so if you’re going to have dessert, then it helps to be simple. Another great thing about this dessert is that it can be made entirely in one pan over a small burner stove or an open campfire. This is a great recipe for families to do together.
- 3 ripe peaches, sliced
- 1 tablespoon butter, or neutral oil
- 1/2 cup bourbon
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 cup granola
- Optional: handful chopped almonds, if your granola doesn’ have them already mixed in
- In a skillet (8 or 10 inch works best) over medium high heat, heat the oil or butter. Add the peaches in a single layer and cook 2-3 minutes until beginning to soften and brown in spots. Flip the peaches and cook the other side an additional 2-3 minutes.
- Take the skillet off the fire (this might seem unnecessary, but it will prevent the alcohol vapor from catching fire if the flames from your campfire flare up). Pour bourbon into the skillet, then return the skillet to the grill. Add 2 tablespoons sugar, stir well to incorporate and coat the peaches.
- Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the sauce reduces and the peaches are soft, about 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat, sprinkle with 1 cup granola (and chopped almonds if using) to create the crumble topping, and serve immediately.
