Tis the season for cobbler. The fruit is ripe, the picnic table is set (unless you live in Oklahoma where it’s one hundred billion degrees) and the farmer’s market has what you need.
If you’re a regular reader (and if you are then bless you) then you may have noticed my new love affair with garam masala. Well, guess what? It has made it’s way into my cobbler. Now just so you know…this cobbler has a much more cake-y batter than a traditional biscuit type cobbler. Now that I’ve given you the disclaimer, here we go.
5-6 peaches, peeled and cut into bite size pieces
1 cup Aunt Jemima Buttermilk pancake mix
1 1/2 to 2 cups water
4-5 Tbs. butter
juice from one lemon
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. garam masala
Preheat oven to 350
Combine peaches, lemon juice and 1/4 cup sugar in a pot and simmer on stove until peaches are just soft. About 15 minutes.
Place butter in a baking dish and put into preheated oven to melt butter.
Meanwhile combine pancake mix, water, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder and garam masala. Don’t add the water all at once. Add enough to give you a thick pancake batter consistency. Pour the batter into the baking dish with the melted butter. Pour the fruit on top of that. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Best served warm with ice cream.
