So the other day, I went peach picking!! It was a beautiful sunny day while picking and I was so excited to bake with them. Well, by the time I lugged my bushels home, I wasn’t as ecstatic, instead I was very very tired and the peaches sat on the counter for awhile. They continued sit there….and sit there. Well, finally I decided to make something with the peaches, so I hoped onto the internet and headed over to one of my favorite blogs, BrownEyedBaker, and scrolled through her compilation of her favorite peach recipes. I decided upon this one! Its both sweet and spicy because of the hint of nutmeg and cinnamon! The biscuit-like topping is a perfectly simple almost bland complement to the peaches. I do wish I had more peaches as I seemed to have a lot of topping and not much peaches, anyways I still thoroughly enjoyed it! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
For the Peach Filling:
6 peaches, peeled, pitted & sliced into ¼- to ½-inch slices
2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup + 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
Pinch of ground cinnamon
Pinch of ground nutmeg
Pinch of salt
4 tablespoons instant tapioca, (ground up a bit)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup cake flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
¾ cup buttermilk
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, and grab a large oven safe baking dish.
- In a bowl mix together the peaches, lemon juice, sugar, spices, salt and tapioca. Stir together and let sit for 15 minutes.
- To make the cobbler topping, whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, suagar and salt, then mix in the butter with your hands. Keep mixing until the mixture resembles a corse meal with small bits of butter. Then pour in the buttermilk and mix with a fork.
- Dump the peach mixture into your baking dish, then drop the cobbler topping over the peach mixture (I used a large cookie dough scoop).
- Bake 50 to 60 minutes, the peaches will bubble and the top should become golden brown.
