Love it

Lately I’ve been craving all the usual summer fruits!  I adore berries of all kinds and I start to drool when I’m walking in the produce section and smell fresh stone fruits.

This is great, since they‘re on sale-however, my eyes are just like yours-too big for my stomach!  What to do outside of freezing them or adding some to some low fat muffin or quick bread?

I turn it into a cobbler or brown betty.  My brown betty is different than most-I love using low-fat cinnamon graham crackers. As I’m typing this I’m wondering-do I have any grahams left in the storage room???

Today though-it’s all about the cobbler!

I bought way too many blueberries and then dh started drooling in Costco over some gorgeous looking pears (Pears, now???).  I’m not going to mention that I already bought my limit of strawberries and pluots!

Luckily I was watching The Kitchen and decided, “Ok Katie Lee-I’m going to adapt your grandma’s recipe and use some of the tired fruits“.  DH loves cobbler (this one is so good, he went back for seconds!)

Since this recipe is quick, easy and easy to adapt to the fruits your family loves I thought I’d share it with you this week:

Peach Cobbler

Total Time:1 hrPrep:10 minCook:50 min    

Yield:8 to 10 servingsLevel:Easy

4 cups sliced peeled fresh peaches (4 to 5 peaches)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond)
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted (I used coconut oil)
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup boiling water
Serving suggestions: vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, optional


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Place the peaches in a 9-by-9-inch baking pan. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, 3/4 cup of the sugar, the baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Add the milk and melted butter and mix well. Pour the batter evenly over the peaches.

In a small bowl, mix together the remaining 1/4 cup sugar, the cornstarch and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Sprinkle the mixture over the batter. Evenly pour the boiling water all over.

Bake until golden brown and bubbling, 50 minutes.

This would be great for breakfast, no?

Love it
