Peach Cobbler

Peach season has come and gone here in Ontario but nothing is better than a Fresh Ontario Peach. A few weeks ago we were driving home from Niagara Falls and stopped at a fruit stand off the highway and picked up two cases of peaches for $5 each. We immediately had to think of recipes that we haven't yet shared that involved peaches. 

Peach Cobbler was the first thing that came to mind as we drove home and right away we began testing recipes and here's what we came up with. A simple yet sophisticated recipe that will surely impress your family and friends. 

Ingredients
Cake Layer
2/3 Cup Melted Butter
1 Cup Flour
1 Cup Sugar
1 TBSP Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1 Cup Milk
1 Egg

Peach Layer
4-6 Fresh Peaches Sliced
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
2 tsp Cornstarch
2 tsp Water
1/2 tsp Lemon Juice

Instructions:

Peach Layer

  1. In a saucepan heated on medium heat add all of the ingredients except for the cornstarch and water 
  2. Stir occasionally until the peaches start to caramelize in the saucepan alongside the caramel-like sauce in the pan.
  3. When the peaches begin to soften mix together the cornstarch and water into a slurry (this will stop the cornstarch from clumping together) and pour it into the mixture and cook until the sauce has thickened up.  
  4. Take the saucepan off the heat and allow it to cool while preparing the cake layer. 

Cake Layer

  1. Preheat oven to 375F 
  2. Melt the butter and pour it into a 9"x9" square cake pan.
  3. Next in a medium sized mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, milk and egg and mix until well combined. 
  4. Pour over the butter mixture in the pan. 
  5. Take your peach layer that has been off to the side cooling and pour them evenly into the cake pan. 
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the edges are a deep golden brown. 

Serve this dessert with some vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce and some fresh peach slices and you've got a winner every time.
