This recipe for peach and berry cobbler was devised a while ago and everyone seems to like it – it’s fluffy, slightly eggy with a nice firm crust.
Wash the peaches to remove the excess fluff.
Put lots of ice in a large bowl and fill with water
In a large pot, boil a pot of water. Put the whole peaches in the boiling water for 1 minute
Take the peaches out and plunge them into the iced water. This will stop them from cooking further
With a small knife, peel the peaches and roughly chop the peaches into chunks
Put the peaches and the berries into a baking dish (approx 20 x 30 cm)
In a mixing bowl cream the butter and first measure of sugar together until light and fluffy
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition
Sift the flour and baking powder into the mixture and stir well to combine
Sprinkle the berries (I used strawberries) over the peaches
Spoon the cobbler mixture over the fruit and mix roughly to combine. I like to do this very roughly so that there are pockets of fruit
Sprinkle the top with the second measure of sugar
Bake for 50 mins or until cooked and golden brown in the middle.
Serve immediately with lots of ice cream.
