I bought a basket of beautiful fresh peaches during a recent trip to the farmers’ market. Since I managed to make it through the entire summer without making peach cobbler, I decided to take advantage of the tail end of peach season and make a cobbler.
To make the cobbler, I used the following:
- 6 fresh peaches
- 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 cup sugar (1/4 cup for peaches and 1/4 cup for batter)
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup low fat buttermilk
- 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups flour
I preheated the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. I washed the peaches and placed them in boiling water for one minute. I then transferred the peaches to cold water. I peeled the peaches, cut each into eight pieces, and placed them in a large bowl. I added the lemon juice, corn starch, and 1/4 cup sugar to the peaches. I poured the peaches into a greased 9 x 13″ glass baking dish and baked for 10 minutes.
While the peaches were baking I mixed together the remaining ingredients. I dropped tablespoons of the batter onto the partially cooked peaches, making sure to leave space between the spoonfuls of batter.
