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.
slightly amended and halved from John’s recipe
410g tin peach slices
½ cup all purpose flour
½ cup sugar – I used brown
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ cup milk
¼ cup butter melted
- Preheat the oven to 190°C.
- Place the peaches in the bottom of a baking dish and pour over half of the syrup from the tin.
- In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt and mix.
- Add the milk and butter, mixing until just combined.
- Pour the batter over the peaches.
- Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until the top is golden brown.
- Serve warm or cold.
