Peach and Rosemary Cobbler

By Saturday, December 12, 2015

Cobbler is a new favourite in our household. It is so quick and easy to make, but has the added bonus of looking far more complex than it actually is! The flavour and texture combination in the cobbler is so good, with the sweet peaches and earthy rosemary contrasting so well with the crunchy biscuit topping. This is best served warm with a good dollop of fresh cream.   

You will need:

10 peaches
1 lemon, juiced and zested
300g plain flour
50g butter, chilled and diced
150ml whole milk
100g caster sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 large sprig rosemary, finely chopped

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees / gas 4. Wash the peaches, then quarter them, removing their stones. Line your pie dish with the peaches in two layers, then drizzle with the lemon juice and zest. 

In a large mixing bowl, sieve in the flour and baking powder, then add the sugar, rosemary, salt and butter. Rube the butter into the flour until it begins to resemble fine breadcrumbs.

Then, in a small bowl whisk together the egg and milk. Slowly pour into the breadcrumb mixture and using a fork mix everything until it just comes together to form a thick batter. Spoon small tablespoons of the mixture over the peaches - do not worry about making it look neat and tidy, as one of the joys of this dish is that it is very rustic!

Bake in the oven for 35 - 40 minutes until it is risen and beautifully golden. Serve with fresh cream or custard and enjoy!
