*This week we’ve each used different recipes so for this post you can call us: “Two Recipes, Two Kitchens….”
Chef Karen: I love peaches so I’m pretty honoured to have my Grandma Wibert’s peach cobbler recipe. This is the one I used this week. It’s pretty simple and very tasty. I made it in about 15 minutes; including peeling and cutting the peaches. I did add blueberries to it for a little twist – I’m sure she wouldn’t care 🙂 Here is the recipe:
2 C peaches, sliced, peeled and pitted
1 1/2 C sugar; divided
3/4 C milk
3/4 C flour
2 t baking powder
Pinch of salt
1/2 C melted butter
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Mix the peaches with 1/2C of the sugar and put them in an 8×8 baking dish.
3. Mix the rest of the sugar, IC, with the milk.
4. Add in the flour, baking powder and salt with a whisk; whisk well.
5. Whisk in the melted butter until it is thoroughly mixed in.
6. Pour the batter over the peaches and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
7. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
Chef Jonathan: My version of this classic summer dessert was fairly rustic. I cut my peaches into dissimilar pieces, mixed with a touch of lemon juice, almond extract, cornstarch and a few tablespoons of sugar. Thrown into the oven for 20 minutes, this makes the peaches nice and soft and the aroma is amazing! Making the cobbler, consisting of a pâté sucre (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt) rub in the cold butter, egg, and cream. Dropping spoonfuls of the cobbler over the peaches, it spreads nicely when it bakes for 15 more minutes. This is the perfect summer dessert, replace your favourite summer fruit for peaches!
