Stone fruit season is here and for me that means lots of desserts and drinks!! I had a few requests for my peach cobbler recipe and thought this is the perfect time to share it with you all. You will want to make it now!
I also had someone ask whether fresh peaches could be substituted with canned peaches. I would not do that because canned peaches contain a lot of sugar syrup, which will make the dessert overly sweet. Also the syrup will lead to a very wet batter. I prefer the taste of fresh peaches. The fresh peaches hold their shape without becoming too soft but also aren’t left raw. They have that perfect bite in them and the fruit has a burst of fresh peach flavour, which makes this cobbler irresistible.
Serve your cobbler with vanilla ice cream. Sometimes when want to be ‘extra’, I top the ice cream with salted caramel. The diet starts tomorrow! So let’s get started
Preparation Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40-45 minutes
6 fresh yellow peaches- peeled, pitted and sliced.
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
7 tablespoons butter
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 180c. Peel, pit and slice the peaches.
Place them in a bowl. Add the brown sugar and white sugar. Mix well and set it aside.
Place the melted butter in a 9x9 inch pyrex dish. Spread it around the set it aside.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Whisk well and then add the milk. Mix until smooth.
Transfer the batter to the baking dish. Do not mix the batter with the melted butter. Allow the batter to sit on top of the butter. Spread the batter to the edges with a spatula.
Top the batter with the peaches. Spread them out evenly, leaving some gaps between the peaces, so that the cobbler can fill the gaps while it bakes.
Top with the peach liquid.
Bake the cobbler at 180c for 40-45 minutes, until the cobbler is golden brown and springs back when touched.
Remove from the oven and set aside for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream
