Peaches are in season. My kids can’t seem to decide if they love them or not. I get constant requests to chop up peaches and then they eat maybe half the of bowl. Which is of course driving me bats. Given that I have handfuls of pre-chopped peaches kicking around, I thought why not make a cobbler?
Peaches, about 4 cups worth sliced.
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 stick of butter
a pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350. Place fruit in a saucepan, add maple syrup and a little bit of water (a tablespoon or two), so that overall there is enough liquid to steam the fruit. Heat on medium high heat for roughly 10 minutes, until soft.
Melt the butter (microwave on high for 1 minute). Pour melted butter into an 8″ by 11″ glass baking dish. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
In a mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Mix dry ingredients. Add egg and milk. Mix well with a fork.
Add batter to baking dish, by the spoonful. It won’t quite cover the bottom. Now add the peaches on top. Spread them out evenly over the entire container and pour the peach and maple syrup liquid over top. It will seem pretty soupy, don’t panic.
Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool briefly. Eat while warm.
The first time I made this I used half peaches and half apples, the second time just peaches. Both were good. My husband said he preferred the apple version. I think in a few weeks once apples are in plenty we will definitely have to try an apple cobbler version of this.
And lest you say, “Where’s the #foodpic in all of this?”, this here was my afternoon snack. Yum.
Let me know if you give the recipe a try!
