Life's A Peach

Last weekend, the pawrents aka pawpawrazzi left us to attend to some business Down Under aka the land where I was born. Anyway, I gave them a looooong list of stuff to get, to make it easier for them, stuffs they can easily get at Coles or Woolies. Wasn't I considerate? Among others, they bought me some fruits like Aussie mangoes and peaches....you see, getting things out of Australia is easy. To cut the story short, I think, due to the very hot and humid Malaysian weather, the peaches wither faster than they should. So, something has to be done. Thus, we came up with this solution - Peach Cobbler. An easy recipe we copied from www.mealsmatter.org...it's yummy to bits.

Peach Cobbler

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup milk
2 cups fresh peaches, pitted and sliced (option: same amount of canned peaches)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups water

Preheat oven to 190 degree Celcius. Lightly butter a 9" x 9" glass baking pan.
In a large bowl, cream butter and 1/2 cup sugar.
In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt, baking powder. Add to the creamed mixture alternately with the milk. Spread mixture evenly into baking dish.
If using canned peaches, drain thoroughly, reserving the juices. Spoon fruit over batter.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and 1/4 cup sugar. Pour fruit juice or water over the top.
Bake for 45 to 55 minutes. During baking, the fruits and juice go to the bottom of the pan while the batter rises.

Gather all ingredients - we used fresh Australian white-fleshed and yellow-fleshed peaches and substituted white sugar with brown. The cinnamon duster sugar is also from Down Under.
How the cobbler looked like before baking.
Fresh out of the oven. Serve it warm (just scoop the messy concoction) with ice cream, preferably Bulla. Aussie peaches paired with Aussie ice cream, OK?
Angelina's note: Someone at the office said the texture is somewhat like bread and butter pudding but overloaded with peaches. Oh well....we also eat bread and butter pudding with ice cream. Wouldn't you? purrrr.....meow!
