This. Was. Good.
It was SO good! This recipe was very spur of the moment – I was just idling round Waitrose one evening and I saw these peaches. They just looked so good and juicy and they were the last two punnets. All alone on the shelf. I had to buy them.
I then had to guard them jealously from my sisters and mother so I could use them for this cobbler that just popped into my mind on the way home.
“No! They’re for baking!”
“But they’re perfectly ripe -”
“THEY’RE FOR BAKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
So yes. Such fun.
Well anyway, I managed to save five of the eight peaches and I utilized the last of some frozen berries in the freezer; the combo was delicious! To make this lovely summer dessert you shall need:
5 ripe peaches
Approx 1 cup berries, frozen or fresh
3/4 cup butter or dairy free spread (I used Pure sunflower spread)
3/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup oats
1/2 cup brown sugar (less or more to taste)
- Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C and arrange your sliced peaches and berries in a baking dish.
- Mix up your flour, oats, brown sugar and cinnamon before cutting in the butter or spread with a fork…or just muck in and do it by hand. I did.
- Spread your yummy oaty mixture over your fruit and place in the oven to bake for 30 minutes; watch for the top going a gorgeous golden brown!
- Serve. Eat. Sit for a few minutes thinking “…damn that was good…”
Hope you enjoy it – peace and peaches to you all x
