Peach cobbler

A Cobbler refers to a variety of dishes, particularly in the United States and United Kingdom, consisting of a fruit or savoury filling poured into a large baking dish and covered with a batter, biscuit, or pie crust before being baked. Wikipedia

8 fresh peaches – peeled, pitted and sliced into thin wedges


Preheat oven to 220 degrees C.

In a large bowl, combine peaches, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, and 2 teaspoons cornstarch. Toss to coat evenly, and pour into a pie dish. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.


Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon  baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Blend in 6 tablespoons butter (chilled and cut into small pieces) with your fingertips, or a pastry blender, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in 1/4 cup boiling water until just combined.


3 tablespoons white sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Remove peaches from oven, and drop spoonfuls of topping over them. I grated it over the mixture. Sprinkle entire cobbler with the sugar and cinnamon mixture.IMG_0980

Bake until topping is golden, about 30 minutes.


Serve it with a custard.
