This summer I've been busy baking anything and everything with fresh fruit. And when you buy fruit at Costco for 2 people, you have to find ways to use it up before its too late! I bought a big box of peaches last week, and as my boyfriend would say, "I was at war with cobbler". Each night I was trying a new recipe, or altering one. Needless to say, we filled up on peach cobbler.
This recipe has an interesting method of adding warm water on top of the assembled cobbler. It ends up making the cobbler extra moist and gooey on the bottom, while having a crispy browned top. However, it appears rather unappetizing when going into the oven.
Trust me, it will turn out just fine. I promise you will think you did something wrong, but just let that go and have faith in the peach cobbler gods!
It will end up with a crunchy, crispy, golden top, and a warm syrupy bottom. Serve this with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and everyone will want seconds!
Serves about 6
Adapted from All Recipes
6 fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup sugar
1 stick butter
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 cup hot water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 or similar sized pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, stir together peaches, 1 cup sugar and cinnamon.
In a bowl stir together flour, baking powder and salt, set aside. In the bowl of a mixer, beat butter and sugar on med-high until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture and milk alternately to bowl, starting and ending with flour (flour, milk, flour, milk, flour) and mixing until just combined.
Pour half of peach mixture into prepared pan, then pour cobbler batter on top. Pour remaining peaches over the batter. Finally, pour hot water over the peaches.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes depending on the size of your pan, until golden brown.
Serve with a scoop of ice cream. Enjoy!
