Peach Cobbler


The other day, one of our kind colleagues got a big bag of peach to work and left it in the break room. I picked a couple to eat throughout the day. In the evening, while I was leaving I saw there were still some left in the bag. As it is, it was late in the day and thought nobody else wants it, so I took the rest of it..:)




When I came home, I made peach cobbler with it, a quick warm dessert and we had it with ice cream...yummm!

Sorry for the dark pictures. I took the pictures at night with my phone camera...:(


You'll need:
-------------
For the fruit mixture
- 6-8 peaches, pitted and sliced into thin wedges.
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons cornflour.

For topping.
- 1 cup all purpose flour.
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces.
- 1/4 cup boiling water.

- 3 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon.

Steps:
------
-To the peaches, add 1/4 white sugar, 1/4 brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice and cornflour and toss to coat evenly. Pour this mixture in the baking dish and bake for 10 minutes.

- In a large bowl, combine, flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Blend in the butter with your fingertips, till the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Stir in the water until just combined.

- Remove peach from the oven and drop spoonfuls of topping over them. Sprinkle the cobbler with the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Bake it for about 30 minutes or till the top is golden brown.

You can enjoy just like that or when it is warm serve with icecream.
