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.
