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.
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
This is a winner of a recipe Charlie, I’m sure even Arabella and Archie couldn’t resist this despite the carb, sugar and fat content. 😀 Have an awesome weekend. 🙂 xo
I made John’s cobbler too & I’ll bet the peaches were equally awesome. Definitely whipped cream on top.
John’s recipe is an absolute winner Diane. I think the plum is still my favourite though. Have a beautiful weekend. 🙂 xo
I am thinking to have some ice cream with this delicious cobbler!
It’s wonderful that one dish can have so many complimentary accompaniments Angie. Have a lovely weekend. 🙂 xo
Ooh that looks so good and ridiculously easy. Now why haven’t I made this yet?! Are you still on your diet (thing) then 😦 ?
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
Sounds like a sensible approach – enjoy your weekend too!
Sensible is our middle name after all said and done, right? haa haa 🙂
Mmmm I love cobbler! Well, and peaches. Sounds delicious!
It’s fabulous Caroline and comes together so quickly. Have a beautiful weekend. 🙂
Looks yummy and simple to make! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Thanks so much. Glad you like it. This really is a super recipe. Have a lovely weekend. 🙂
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
You are making me hungry… Love John’s recipe and peaches are a nice addition.
Bam, with your wonderful inventive ways, I’m sure you could add a few wonderful flavours and ingredients to this. Have a lovely weekend. 🙂 xo
This is a brilliant recipe for emergencies 🙂
Absolutely. Have a super weekend Tandy. 🙂 xo
Your peach cobbler is not the rendition I’m used to seeing, but it looks so much better :). I just wish I could eat peaches.
Thanks for such a lovely compliment Kay. Why can’t you eat peaches? 🙂
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.
All well this side thanks Kristy, hope the same with you and the family. Hope you get to try this lovely recipe soon. Have a lovely weekend. 🙂 xo
Growing up in the south where peach cobbler is a very traditional dessert, I think it is one the best desserts ever.
I bet you have a winner of a recipe for peach cobbler too Karen. Have a wonderful Sunday. 🙂 xo
I really do love things that are this simple but are magical. Great for a last minute guest. Thanks Mandy. You can never ever go wrong with a John recipe. 😉
Agreed Geni, John’s recipes are all winners. Have a lovely week ahead. 🙂 xo
