If you are looking for an easy dessert or something to do with your perhaps-excessive peach bounty, try this recipe:
- Put 1/2 a cup of butter (1 stick) in a 9x13-inch Pyrex baking dish, put the dish in the oven and set to 350°F. You can substitute oil or margarine here but the buttery flavor is one of the charms of this dish.
- While the butter is melting, mix up a batter by combining 1 cup of whole grain flour, 1 &1/2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1/3 cup of powdered milk (optional), 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1 cup of grape juice concentrate, undiluted. Add a little water or addition juice if necessary to get a thick, but pourable, batter.
- When the butter is completely melted, remove the pan from the oven and pour the batter into the melted butter. Do not mix.
- Then, carefully spoon 3 cups peeled and sliced fresh peaches and juice evenly over the batter.
- Return dish to the oven and bake for 30 minutes. As the cobbler cooks, the batter will rise up and around the peaches. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
