I’ve been partial to crumbles my whole life, particular crunchy ones speckled with oats. But the past few weeks have me engrossed in a bunch of romance novels all, mysteriously, involving bakeries, handsome men and beautiful food scenarios – ahem! In one of them, and I forget which (there’ve been so many), the young protagonist pours her energies into whipping up a perfect peach cobbler for her bakery… and a perfectly gorgeous and dashing man is blown away with just one bite and subsequently falls in love with her.
Who knew the powers of a cobbler?
Well, it got me craving a peach cobbler, and I decided to make one, just for myself, as I’ve no interest in feeding any man – I don’t like sharing dessert.
The cobbler topping is an in between of a British scone, American biscuit and a muffin. I like to grate the butter into the flour mixture – it’s a very old fashioned American way, and also a lot of fun and easier. The addition of milk may make you nervous of the loose batter, but fret not, they will bake nicely and rise just enough. I add some extra sprinkling of sugar on top for some crunch.
For this recipe, my talented darling cousin Amar helped with a video tutorial – I hope you enjoy 🙂
