I managed to salvage some peaches in my battle with Brown Rot and I wanted to make a cobbler. There are lots of recipes for peach cobbler, but I was looking for one with more of a crunchy topping, versus a “cakey” one. I ended up combining two different recipes. I was really happy with how it came out and wanted to write out the recipe for future use, so I thought I might as well share it with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
Mid-Life Blogger’s Peach Cobbler
- 4 cups fresh or frozen sliced peaches
- 1 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch
- 1/4 c brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1/2 c water
- 1 Tbsp butter
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- Batter topping:
- 1/2 c all-purpose flour
- 1/2 c sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 Tbsp soft butter
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a saucepan, combine cornstarch, brown sugar, water, and peaches. Cook over medium until mixture is thickened, about 15 minutes. Add 1 Tbsp butter, lemon juice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour into an 8" round baking dish.
- Batter Topping: Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, 2 Tbsp soft butter, and egg. Beat with a spoon until batter is smooth. Drop by spoonfuls over hot peach mixture. Sprinkle with 1 Tbsp of sugar. Bake 40-50 minutes.
- Serves 4 alone, or 6 with ice cream.
