It's a new week, and I only say this because I have been sooo MiA these last few weeks. Due to a lot of personal trauma, I felt that it was necessary to take some time off here and just be, if that makes any sense. Whenever these "mini" breaks happen, I like to ease back into it, and I thought this Peach Cobbler would be the perfect way to do that! I have always felt this would be the perfect summer recipe, and as much as the weather has been "on and off" in Cape Town, it has still been predominantly easy recipe weather.
I used fresh peaches and left the skin on, and I loved the roughage as it created a nice crisp as well as helping to absorb the sugar drizzled on top of the peaches. I crumbed the crust around the peaches so you could see the peaches in formation, and it makes it easier when slicing the cobbler.
This is seriously a very easy recipe, and the baking time was just as quick. It can easily go from golden brown to burnt, so I would suggest possibly watching the oven for the last few minutes.
I hope you love this summer recipe, I will be making loads of these throughout the warmer months!
4-5 fresh peaches
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla essence
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp. vailla essence
1 cup self raising flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
A pinch of salt
Extra sugar for dusting
Spray grease proof, non-stick spray around your skillet, and put aside.
Slice the peaches and toss in the skillet with sugar and vanilla essence and 1 table spoon of flour to soak up excess juices.
Then in a mixer, with the creaming attachment, add all the ingredients together to make the crumble.
Arrange your peach as you would like, I put mine of the edges but you can also put yours on top for a more fuller look.
Pop into the oven, make sure it is preheated to 180 C, and let it bake for 30 min.
Remove after 20 min and dust some sugar on top for a more crispy bite.
Allow to cool a bit, and enjoy with a dollop of ice cream.
