Peach Cobbler for Peaches Geldof
I'm not one for celebrity news. I don't follow the typical websites dedicated to the inane details of celebrity lifestyle. Facebook however, has begun including a 'Trending' section in the sidebar and it was there that I learned of the untimely death of a young lady named Peaches, daughter of Bob Geldof, who founded the Bandaid.
Celebrities, despite their big fat bank accounts, nice clothes and fancy vacations, really do have it sort of rough. They live their life with cameras flashing constantly, not even able to run out to the grocery store in their flannel jammie pants without it being documented for the world to see. That's got to be extremely stressful. No thanks!
As a sort of homage to the late Peaches Geldof, I give you Peach Cobbler.
Makes one 8 inch dish
2 large peaches, sliced (peeled if using fresh)
1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 dash nutmeg
3/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 375F.
Mix peach slices with 3/4 cup sugar and set aside. Pour butter into an 8 inch square baking dish. Mix flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and remaining sugar. Stir in milk until just combined. Pour over butter in baking dish. Top with peach slices.
Bake for 45 minutes or until golden. Cobbler is best eaten day of baking as the fruit tends to render it soggy if left to sit.
