Warm Peach Cobbler
August 28, 2010
This is summer, served warm on a plate. Just peeling the peaches, uncovering that color just beneath the skin, makes me happy. As does the scent of this simple cobbler as it bakes, filling the house with its golden aroma
Peel 4 large peaches, and slice them directly into a glass or ceramic pie plate, being sure to capture the juice. Squeeze half a lemon over the fruit and toss in a half cup of sugar and a tablespoon of cornstarch.
Mix a cup of flour with a teaspoon of baking powder, and a quarter teaspoon of baking soda and salt. Cut in half a stick of butter and very gently mix in a third cup of buttermilk. Plop the dough onto the fruit, shake a little sugar over the top and bake in a 400 degree oven for about half an hour.
Serve warm, with a pitcher of cream.

Hey! You have comments! Congrats 🙂 I agree with you about peaches’ aroma being the beating heart of summer. So seductive, so warm, so sweet and complex, too. Bought a bunch at the market this morning and was planning a pie, but maybe I’ll do this instead. Mmmm.
Can’t wait till Summer stone fruit hits our shores! This would be a great simple and highly approachable way to say HELLO SUMMER!!! Thanks Ruth!
A few weeks ago tried a “Sweet Dream” peach at Eastbank Farmer’s Market in Portland. So sweet, juice running down my chin, told the farmer it must be illegal it was so good. Will buy some more for your cobbler recipe. Thanks.
Will make it this weekend — can’t wait.
Such a simple recipe. Lovely. Last time I made it though, I had trouble getting the underside of the cobbler to bake. We ate it a little runny and it was still good.
Congratulations on taking comments. I hope they do not overwhelm you.
Great hammer of Thor, that is powrlfuely helpful!
I still make this recipe every summer with farmers market nectarines, and it’s sublime. Thank you.
