Peach Cobbler

Remember John’s From The Bartolini Kitchen magic plum cobbler I made a while ago, well it is still talked about in my family.

I was invited out for dinner a couple of evenings back and as per usual I got the proverbial suckers on my butt and sat at my computer way later than I should have before thinking about what to make to take with for dessert and seeing I am still watching what I eat (sort of), I didn’t have any fruit in the house but did manage to find a tin of peaches in the pantry cupboard which immediately made me think of a cobbler and then naturally I went straight for John’s recipe.

I was a bit concerned the peaches would be to heavy for the magic to happen so a placed the mixture over the peaches as opposed to the other way around and just as I hoped, success and yes, I did enjoy a wee portion.

  1. It looks so beautiful with the peach oozing from it. I saw this on John’s blog and thought it looked like a great recipe. I should give it a try before all the stone fruits disappear xx

    • Tanya, you HAVE TO make this over the weekend, seriously. Hmm, as for the diet thing – when Pete is home, I fall off the wagon big time so have to try and catch up with myself when he is away plus I when visiting with the folks, well its just good food from beginning to end and then it was Easter and oh, you know how it goes, so needless to say I am still trying to be good on my “alone” days. Have a beautiful weekend. 🙂 xo

  2. I’m so glad, Mandy, that you’ve made and enjoyed this cobbler. I, too, have made it with peaches but in the usual way, with the batter on the bottom of the baking dish. To tell you the truth, I didn’t even consider that the peaches could cause a problem. No matter. It’s good to know that it will work either way. Thank you for your kind words, Mandy, when mentioning the recipe.

    • See, I should have just trusted your recipe John but like you say, nice to know it works both ways although I must say when doing it your way, it is much juicier. Have a beautiful weekend. 🙂 xo

  3. Diet or not, I would enjoy more than a wee portion of this Mandy! I LOVE peach cobbler. Fortunately we’re heading toward summer and that means lots of fresh peaches. I can’t wait! 🙂 Hope you are well. Have a great weekend.
