If you are fed up of baking and eating those typical cakes and pastries and want to try a different dessert, try this Peach cobbler recipe. A cobbler is actually a combination of fruit and cake. The fruit is really immersed in syrup and is traditionally covered with a hard topping.
Sliced peaches in light syrup - 1 large can (29 ounces)
Brown sugar - ⅓ cup
Granulated sugar - ¼ cup
Lemon juice - 1 lemon
Ground cinnamon - ¼ teaspoon
Ground nutmeg - ¼ teaspoon
Salt - 1 pinch
Butter - 1 tablespoon
Cornstarch - 2 tablespoons
Sifted all-purpose flour - 1 cup
Baking powder - 1 teaspoon
Salt - ½ teaspoon
Sugar - 2 teaspoons
Chilled butter - ¼ cup
Milk - ⅓ cup
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Also prepare one quart baking dish by slightly greasing it with melted butter.
Open the tin of peaches and drain them, reserving the syrup.
Arrange the drained peach slices in the prepared baking dish, while measure one cup of the reserved syrup into a small saucepan.
Add ⅓ cup of brown sugar and ¼ cup of granulated sugar to the saucepan containing the syrup.
Now add lemon juice and butter to the syrup and mix well.
Now add all the spices and two tablespoons of corn-starch to the syrup and sugar mixture.
After stirring well, place the saucepan over the stove and bring this mixture to boil on medium heat.
Once the concoction starts boiling, reduce the heat and allow it to simmer uncovered for about 4 to 5 minutes or until the sauce is thick and clear.
Pour the hot sauce over the peaches and place it in the oven.
Meanwhile, prepare a topping for your peach cobbler.
In a medium sized bowl, combine one cup of all-purpose flour, one teaspoon of baking powder, half teaspoon of salt and two teaspoons of sugar.
Add butter to the dry ingredients bit by bit until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Now add ⅓ cup of milk to this mixture and stir well to form stiff dough.
Remove the peaches from the oven and spoon this dough over the hot peaches so that they are completely covered.
Return to oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
Your peach cobbler is ready and you can serve it both hot and cold with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
