Peach Strawberry Cobbler

I actually wanted to make a savoury dish with peaches but the veggies i had on hand gave me no inspiration....it was then i decided to make a cobbler. I usually look to make cobblers when i have an overload of fruits and i have a craving to eat cake!! ...the cobbler seem to multi-task on that level. This cobbler recipe is really easy and quick and made up on the fly..as i make these quite often.



Honestly..this is a bad photo..but it was 9:00 pm..and i was waiting to dig in...and after we ate some..the dish looked pretty bad..as i had eaten a lot of the cakey top ;)


Ingredients:

Peaches - 2 cups sliced (fresh - with skin peeled)
Strawberry - 2 cups sliced
Sugar - 3/4 cup ( 1/2 cup +1/4 cup)
Milk - 3/4 cup (used 2%)
Vanilla Extract - 1 tbls.
All purpose flour - 1 cup
Baking soda - 1 tsp.
Baking powder - 1 tsp.
Butter - 1 tbls
Salt - 1/4 tsp.

Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.

2. Melt the butter in a pan and keep aside. Slice the fruits sprinkle them with 1/4 cup of sugar and keep aside in a bowl

3. Sift the flour,baking soda,baking powder and 1/2 cup sugar in a big bowl.

3. Mix the milk,vanilla extract,melted butter and add it to the flour to make a smooth batter.

4. Butter a baking dish (8*4) and pour the smooth batter in it and arrange the fruits on top...dunk the fruits a little in batter.

5. Bake for 40 mts till bubbly.

Notes:

You can increase the sugar to 1 cup...depending on the sweetness of the fruits..my cobbler was a little low on sweet..tho the batter was sweet when tasted raw.

You can also use fat-free milk to make it lower in fat, i had 2 % on hand. i could have diluted it with some water..but i forgot.

The leftovers can be frozen for a month...just thaw it out in room temp and warm it in a 300F oven for 15 mts.

This is off to Mansi of Fun and Food who is hosting the AFAM - Peach.

Your peach cobbler looks great Rajitha. This absolutely flawless to me. The golden crust with strawberry and peach slices make it so inviting. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Not at all bad for 9pm photo. You should see mine taken on a cloudy 6pm photo, all dark and shady!:D
Cobbler looks yum. All plump and moist. I always top cobbler with streusel topping.
Great entry!:))
