peach cobbler

I’ve wanted to make a cobbler for ever, but have never actually done it.  We were a bit overrun with soft fruits (we’re really bad at eating them), so I decided to have a bash.

Cut up the peaches and nectarines, took out the stones, and put them in an ovenproof dish.  I tossed them in some plain flour, and drizzled with honey.  With hindsight, I should have added just a bit of water, but hey ho.

Then made the cobbler crust with 6oz plain flour, pinch of salt, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tbsp caster sugar and 3 oz marg, blitzed in the Magimix to a breadcrumb texture.  Then added 5oz of soured cream (which I had gone out and bought *specially*! – I’m pretty sure yogurt would do fine).

Made little scone-ish shapes, quite thin, and laid them over the fruit.  Dusted with caster sugar, and baked at 200/gas 6 for about 30 minutes.  ‘Twas delicious – we shall be having that again.
