Sunday Sweets! Peach Cobbler


via This World is Mine {source}

It’s a rainy day in Boston today and all I’m craving is some warm peach cobbler (with a little bit of ice cream on top!)

Christiana Aretta of This World is Mine writes how peaches can be very temperamental and has an incredibly short time of when its at its peak so if you have peaches on you now, use them!

Here is her recipe for Peach Cobbler:


  • 5 large peaches
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup cold water


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Slice the peaches thinly in wedges and mix with 1/4 cup of the sugar, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Bake this mixture for 10 mins and then remove from the oven.
  2. Mix together dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix in butter pieces with your hands until it has a similar texture to corn meal. Stir in water until just blended. Alternatively, you can mix the dry ingredients and the butter together in a food processor until cornmeal texture is achieved. Add the water and blend lightly.
  3. Using two spoons, drop the batter in scattered spoonfuls over the semi-cooked peaches. Tempted though you may be to even out the mixture or go for an artsy Escher pattern, channel your inner Jackson Pollock and allow the batter to remain where it falls. It will spread and “fluff out” in the oven.
  4. Bake battered peaches for 25 minutes (or until the crust is nice and golden brown and the peaches bubbly) and remove from the oven. Tastes best warm.

Thanks for sharing, Christiana!
