Dori Sanders’ Peach Cobbler
(Serves 6 to 8)
- ½ C unsalted butter, melted
- 2 C sugar
- 1 C all-purpose flour
- 3 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1 C whole milk
- 4 C peeled, pitted, thinly sliced peaches
- 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
- several dashes of cinnamon or nutmeg
Preheat the oven to 190°C.
Pour the butter into a 33 x 23 x 5cm casserole dish and set aside.
Combine one cup of the sugar, the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Stir to combine. Add the milk, mixing until just combined. Pour this batter over the butter, but do not stir to combine.
In a small saucepan combine the peaches, the remaining cup of sugar and the lemon juice. Bring to the boil, stirring constantly. Once it’s reached a boil, pour over the batter without stirring to combine.
Sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg. Bake until golden brown, 40 to 45 minutes.
Remove to a rack to cool slightly and then serve.
