Directions

Peanut oil, for frying

Heat deep-fryer to 350 degrees F.

Combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl.

Remove 3 peach halves from can and cut into small cubes.

In a small bowl, combine buttermilk, eggs, butter, cubed peaches, and almond extract. Add wet mixture to dry and stir well until combined.

Using a small ice cream scoop, drop batter into the hot oil. Fry for 1 minute per side. Flip halfway through cooking before it's too heavy to turn. Remove to a paper towel lined sheet tray. Sprinkle immediately with confectioners' sugar. Place on platter and serve with Orange Glaze.

Orange Glaze:
