It’s #NationalPeachCobblerDay so here’s a great recipe for you! The cobbler is said to have been an improvisation of the pie, fruit was dumped into a Dutch oven, topped with cobbled together biscuit dough and baked over an open fire until golden brown.
110g light brown soft sugar
1 lemon, juice and finely grated zest
5 peaches, stones removed and cut into wedges (or use nectarines or other stone fruit)
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
125g slightly salted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
250g self-raising flour
Yorvale ice cream, to serve
1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, gas mark 5. In a baking dish mix 60g sugar, the lemon juice, peach wedges and vanilla bean paste. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, make the topping. In a large bowl, rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the remaining 50g sugar along with the lemon zest. Add 4-5 tbsp cold water and, using your hands, bring together into a ball of dough.
3. Remove the peaches from the oven. Form the dough into 8 rough balls, then sit them on top of the fruit, leaving a little space between each.
4. Return to the oven for 25-30 minutes until the topping is golden and puffed up and the fruit is bubbling.
5. Serve with delicious Yorvale Vanilla with Vanilla Pod ice cream, or your preferred flavour.
