Peach Cobbler

July 4, 2014 – 5:20 pm

This recipe is modified from the one on the back of a bag of frozen peaches. A good starting point, I think, for future endeavours. 🙂 It turned out quite well, especially for how little effort it took to put together.

Peach Cobbler

For the peaches
1 16-oz bag frozen peaches
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup water

For the batter
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla bean paste (or extract)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Thaw peaches for 30 minutes on the counter, or 1-2 minutes on defrost in the microwave.

Heat the peaches, water, and sugar in a saucepan over high heat until the syrup comes to a boil, about 5 minutes.

Melt the butter in a 9 inch cake pan.

Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, milk, and vanilla in a bowl until combined. Spoon the batter over the melted butter and smooth in an even layer. Place peaches evenly over the batter. Pour the syrup on top. Do not stir.

Bake for 40 – 45 minutes, until the top is golden brown and a toothpick poked into the cake comes out clean. Serve warm.
