We’re going old school with today’s bake!
For a while now I’ve wanted to recreate the puddings everyone use to have whilst in primary school. So when mum brought peach cobbler to my attention, I knew I had to give it ago!
I thought it would be quite cool to see if I could ‘elevate’ this peach cobbler and take it to the next level. Funnily enough, I’d been looking for an excuse to bake with peaches for a while so this was the perfect opportunity.
So if you’d like to bake something which takes you back to your primary school days, the recipe for my version of peach cobbler is below:
Ingredients You Need:
- 2 x 410g Of Tinned Peaches, Drained
- 120g Of Caster Sugar, Plus Extra For Sprinkling
- 1tsp Of Ground Ginger
- 150g Of Plain Flour
- 1tsp Of Cinnamon
- 150g Of Butter, Chilled, Cubed & Extra For Greasing
- 1 Egg
- 1tsp Of Baking Powder
How To Make Peach Cobbler:
- Firstly, gather together your equipment and ingredients, grease a baking dish with a little butter and preheat your oven to 180C / 160C Fan / Gas Mark 4.
- Secondly, lay the drained peach slices onto the base of the baking dish and sprinkle with 2tbsp of the caster sugar and 1tsp of ground ginger (TIP: keep to the amount of ginger I’ve recommended as I done a little more and the ginger was very strong!). Set aside.
- Next, tip the 150g of plain flour, the remaining caster sugar, 1tsp of baking powder, 1tsp of cinnamon and mix together till combined.
- Add the 150g of chilled & cubed butter and rub together until it resembles breadcrumbs.
- Then, add in the egg and continue to mix until it comes together and makes a thick dough.
- Once the dough has formed, spoon the dough in dollops on top of the peaches, making a good covering (TIP: leave gaps between each dollop so the dough can spread).
- Sprinkle a little caster sugar over the top then place in the oven for around 40 minutes, until golden brown.
- Finally, once cooked, take out the oven and place aside ready to dish up.
That’s your Peach Cobbler prepared, baked and ready to enjoy!
How nostalgic is this? It’s crazy to think that these sort of puddings aren’t really done in schools no more. It seems such a shame!
