Segmen dapur : my peach cobbler


Have you ever heard of Hlovate? She's (I think Hlovate is female) a novel writer and a great story teller. I've been reading her works since few years back, and love it so much. I haven't heard of (and don't even have a clue) peach cobbler, until I found it in her novel. So, I searched for the recipe and how it looks like. Out of all recipes I found, I think, this is the simple one. This is my first time trying peach cobbler recipe. Totally no idea how it tastes like. Anyway, I'll share the ingredients and 4 easy steps for you! Here it goes.

1/2 cup of unsalted butter
1 cup all-purpose flour (I used plain flour)
2 cups sugar, divided
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup milk (whole or semi-skimmed, doesn't matter)
4 cups fresh peach slices
1 tsp lemon juice
ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg (optional)
water (if needed)

the ingredients
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Melt butter in 13x9-inc baking dish. (I used 6.5x10-inch baking dish and small cup)

2. Mix 1 cup of sugar, peaches and lemon juice in the saucepan. Boil over with high heat and keep stirring them. Look at the peaches texture. You might want to add 1/4 cup of water if it's too dry. Pour batter over batter in the baking dish. Do not stir.

3. Combine flour, the remaining 1 cup of sugar, baking powder, ground cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Add milk and stir until the dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter over batter on top of the peach mixture. Do not stir.

4. Bake for 40-45 minutes until it become golden brown. 

Simple, isn't it? It best serves hot with cold vanilla ice cream. Yeah, yeah, vanilla ice cream is always the best to go with your dessert. 

You can always alternatively;
- use the canned peaches
- sprinkle the ground cinnamon on top of the flour mixture if you didn't add it in the mixture
- use larger baking dish with large cup (so the measurement suit the size of the dish)

So, what are you waiting for? Try it on your own for the taste! While I writing this, the peach cobbler is still in the oven. Sorry to disappoint you for the outcome. I'll post the photos for the next entry, ok? Here's a video from ScooterSMcGee. You might want to skip the intro until 1:00. Note that, the recipe might be slightly different. 

FJ : Peach cobbler now at de ef-jay yaw! Do not forget to try it! I think my peach cobbler is about to ready. Can't wait to try it! Yum yum!
