In The Kitchen: End-Of-Summer Peach Cobbler

Tuesday, 17 September 2013

Apparently, it was my blog’s one year anniversary last week. Yay! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed sharing my life with you all in this little way.

Lately, I’ve been having a huge sweet tooth. This is no surprise to those who know me, but my tooth has been especially sweet as of late. Currently I’m munching on apple slices and cookie butter from Trader Joe’s. 

Last week, I was craving fruit cobbler with vanilla ice cream and thankfully Paul had picked up some juicy peaches just that day. This recipe was really simple and I already had all the ingredients at home. I used a recipe from the food network but cut it in half because it was just the two of us {but who am I kidding? I would eat any amount of dessert put in front of me}.

Hot from the oven with some real vanilla bean ice cream, this dessert was the perfect way to say goodbye to Summer and hello to Fall.

You will need: 

¼ cup unsalted butter
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar, divided in half
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
Pinch salt
½ cup milk
2 cups peeled, pitted, and sliced peaches {I used two huge peaches}
½ tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Cinnamon or nutmeg to sprinkle on the top

So delicious!

1 // Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2 // Pour melted butter into a baking dish {I used an all-ceramic bread pan}.

3 // In a medium bowl, combine the flour, ½ cup sugar, the baking powder, and the salt and mix well. Stir in the milk, mixing until just combined. Pour this batter over the butter but do not stir them together.

4 // In a small saucepan, combine the peaches, lemon juice, and remaining sugar and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Pour the peaches over the batter but do not stir them together. Sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg if desired.

5 // Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until the top is golden-brown.

image

6 // Serve warm or cold with ice cream! {And try not to burn yourself like I did when I tried to eat it directly from the pan}. 

This was a perfect Sunday treat and I happily ate all the leftovers. This counts as my daily fruit serving, right? 

What are your favorite dessert recipes? I need more ideas.

P.S. I am on a break from school this week and I always enjoy baking {and eating} while relaxing at home.
