Hello friends! Welcome to the new week and fresh, tasty and super-easy recipe!
How was your week? Mine was super busy and rather productive, mainly because we are heading off to Scotland later this week, so I have been trying to get everything done and ready before we hit the road.
With that in mind, I've not really had that much time for baking or cooking in general. Luckily, today's recipe for summer peach cobbler is just ideal for these days when you are short of time but still fancy a tasty pud.
What is a cobbler?
Cobbler is a type of a bake with sweet or savoury filling, poured into a baking dish and covered with batter, biscuit or dumpling topping before being baked. Cobblers are very popular in American cuisine, but they have originated in the UK.
They are called 'cobbler' because when you drop the biscuit/ dumpling topping over the fruit, it bakes up to have a cobbled appearance, like a cobblestone street.
Some versions use different toppings, like this Crescent Roll Peach Cobbler recipe. In appearance, they are very similar to the crumble, but technically are not the same. These are very simple bakes, with only a handful of basic ingredients required to make one.
Summer peach cobbler- the ingredients
Only 10 basic ingredients are required to make this tasty bake. Fresh peaches are the star of the show here. I have not tried this recipe using frozen peaches, but you can find some tips and instructions for using frozen peaches on the Pinch Of Yum page here.
Other than fresh peaches, you will need some caster sugar, butter, vanilla, flour, baking powder, salt and a bit of light soft brown sugar. Ice cream or whipped cream are totally optional but VERY HIGHLY recommended with this recipe!
How to make peach cobbler?
Start with pre- heating the oven to 170 C (fan) and lightly grease your baking dish with some butter. Slice the peaches into wedges and transfer them into the baking dish. Sprinkle them with caster sugar and add the vanilla paste. Mix all of the ingredients gently together and set aside while you prepare the cobbler topping.
To make the topping, simply mix the melted butter, caster sugar, flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. It should have the appearance of the cookie dough- like batter, or look like large breadcrumbs. When the topping is ready, spread it all across and over the peaches. Place the cobbler in the hot oven and bake for about 25 minutes until it starts to be bubbly around the edges. After that time, take it out and sprinkle some brown sugar on top. Bake for another 5-10 minutes and finish off under the grill for 5 more minutes.
Ideally, you want your bake to cool down a bit before tucking into it. However, this step is easier said than done! Serve it while still warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a generous dollop of whipped cream on top.
Thanks for tuning in and for reading today's post. I will be taking a short break from the blog over the next couple of weeks, but will be back before you know it!
