Peach Cobbler Recipe

It is absolutely freezing today here in Auckland. I helped some friends move house this morning which helped warm me up but now I'm back home, trying to get the motivation to do some baking while I sit in front of the heater slowly defrosting. Mr S and I had plans tonight but those plans have changed, we were supposed to go out to a quiz night which would have been fun but also would have required wearing normal (cold) clothes, using our brains (ouch) and being social. Instead, we are going to get Pad-Thai, drink cheap wine, lie in front of the heater with thick socks on and probably end up watching a Rom-Com. I like these plans much better!

One thing that winter brings that I don't hate is warm delicious desserts and at last I have found my favourite! It's too good not to share with the world! It is packed full of butter and sugar BUT it tastes amazing so who cares?!

I think my favourite thing about the recipe (other than the taste) is that it's so super duper easy to make! It has all ingredients that you're bound to have in the pantry and you pretty much just throw it all in and bake it. The only thing I don't like about it is the fact that when I talk about it or see photos of it or even think about it, I want some...like right now! NEED PEACH COBBLER!

Peach Cobbler Recipe 
Adapted from Food.com

Batter:
115g Butter (melted)
1 C Flour
¾ C Sugar (maybe less)
2 t Baking Powder
¼ t Salt
2/3 C Milk (room temperature)
1 Egg (room temperature)

Filling:
2 x 410g tin of Peaches, drained
½ C Sugar (maybe less)
1 t Cinnamon
½ t Nutmeg
  1. Melt butter and pour into a large pan or casserole dish.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  3. Add the milk and egg and stir.
  4. Pour evenly over melted butter.
  5. Combine peaches, sugar and spices in a separate bowl and spread over batter but do no stir!
  6. Bake for 35 – 45 minutes at 180 degrees C until batter comes to the top and is golden brown.
  7. Serve warm with ice cream and try not to go back for seconds and thirds and fourths...okay you can! (I did).
Recipe Notes:
I used less sugar than the original recipe suggested and it could still do with less but it's up to you on how sweet you like your desserts.

  1. Came home from work in the rain - checked the blogs while warming up in front of the heater - saw this recipe and was in the kitchen pronto. Only had apricots but went ahead anyway. YUMMO! Would just cut back the butter and sugar next time though, as the dough was very soggy with butter and hard with sugar.
