It’s peach time! The boyfriend’s backyard tree is just bursting with peaches, so this past weekend I picked a few to make a cobbler. I looked up some recipes online and I chose one that had two many complaints about one thing: it’s too sweet! Well, that’s my kind of recipe. It turned out oh so sweet and so wonderful! The texture is more like a cake or bread pudding than a flaky cobbler, but I actually liked that better. If I had time, I would just make dozens of cobblers and freeze them for the year.
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups of sugar, divided
1 tablespoon of baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 cup of milk
5 cups fresh peaches, peeled, cut in quarters
1 tablespoon lime juice
Ground cinnamon and nutmeg to taste
Melt butter in a 13×9 baking dish. In a bowl, combine dry ingredients (use just one cup of sugar!). Add milk to form a batter. Pour over butter, but do not stir.
Bring the remaining cup of sugar, peaches, and lemon juice to a boil over high heat. Pour over batter, but do not stir. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg.
Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.
