Peach Cobbler Recipe

I went grocery shopping today (not usual that I do so midweek), because the store near our house had a sale on dates and feta cheese, a staple item in our house (especially during the month of Ramadan which is coming up...more on that later).  I ended up (as usual) buying lots of other things than were not on my list,  peaches being one of them.  I have been craving peach cobbler for some time now, and I know the hubby has as well, he's mentioned it a few times in passing, so, I decided today I would make us some PEACH COBBLER.  I had this really great recipe that I used a while back, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.  So, I had to find another one.  I came across this recipe and decided to test it out, also as an homage to our recent Atlanta trip :)

I made a few changes here and there to the recipe per my liking (and past experience) and I think (and the hubby agrees), it turned out fantastic!!

RECIPE (serves 5-6)

Peach Mixture:
8 fresh peaches - pitted and sliced into medium sized slices (I don't remove the skin, but you can if you want).
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp lemon juice
2-3 tsp cornstarch

Cake Topping Mixture:
2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
10 tbsp unsalted butter, chilled but not too hard, and cut into small pieces
1/2 cup boiling water

Sprinkling Topping (optional): 
2 tbsp white sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

DIRECTIONS
  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F

  • In a large bowl, combine the peaches, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch.
  • Toss well to coat evenly, and pour into a 9x13 baking pan/dish (I used a pyrex dish).



  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Blend in the butter with your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse meal. You don't want the butter to be all smooth and melted. You want clumps. Squish the butter and mix it well, but you don't need to smooth out the clumps too much.
  • Pour in the hot water and just combine till completely moistened. Will resemble a sticky ball of batter. (I forgot to take a picture of this...sigh)
  • Drop or spread out spoonfuls of topping over the peaches. Sprinkle the entire cobbler with the sugar and cinnamon mixture (optional).

  • Bake until topping is golden, about 30 minutes.


Bon appetit, mes amis.  
Enjoy! :)
