FINALLY! Peach season is upon us. This winter was brutal and significantly effected our peach yield, but we're a "Glass is Half Full" kind of family so we're making the most of it.
Josh adores Peach Cobbler and, frankly, I adore Josh so I do my darnest to keep him happy which is easy (mostly) because I love to bake.
I made this with our 'seconds' from market the previous day, hence the witty moniker (a play on Four Weddings & a Funeral), but you can use all peaches without any problem.
4 Peaches & A Nectarine Cobbler
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup flour
2 cups sugar, divided
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
2/3 cup milk, cream or half & half
1 large egg
4 large fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
1 large nectarine, peeled and sliced
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place butter in 9 x 13 in oven to melt. While butter melts smelling up your whole house, whisk together: flour, 1 cup of sugar, soda & salt together. Stir in milk & egg until blended. Remove pan from oven and pour flour mixture over melted butter. Do Not Stir! Set aside.
Gently toss peaches and nectarine with remaining 1 cup of sugar & spices. Spread over prepared batter in pan. DO NOT STIR.
Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes until top in golden brown.
Serve warm with fresh whipped cream or ice cream.
