This recipe is from The Peach Cobbler Murder by Joanne Fluke. I have also cut the recipe in half and baked it in an 8 x 8 pan. This never lasts long in my house. It also works well with frozen mixed berries.
- 10 cups frozen sliced peaches (approx. 2 1/2 pounds, sliced)
- 1⁄8 cup lemon juice (2 tablespoons)
- 1 1⁄2 cups white sugar (granulated)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup flour (no need to sift)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 cup melted butter (1 stick, 1/4 lb.)
- 1 cup flour (no need to sift)
- 1 cup white sugar (granulated)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 cup softened butter
- 2 eggs, beaten
- Note: Don’t thaw your peaches before you make this – leave them frozen. Make the topping while the filling is cooking.
- Spray 13 x 9 cake pan with Pam or other nonstick cooking spray.
- Making the filling.
- Measure the peaches and put them in a large mixing bowl. Let them sit on the counter and thaw for 10 minutes. Then sprinkle them with lemon juice and toss.
- In another smaller bowl combine 1 1/2 cups white sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 3/4 cup of flour, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Mix them together with a fork until they’re evenly combined.
- Pour the dry mixture over the peaches and toss them. (This works best if you use your hands) Once most of the dry mixture is clinging to the peaches, dump them into the cake pan you’ve prepared. Sprinkle any dry mix left in the bowl on top of the peaches.
- Melt 1/2 cup of butter. Drizzle it over the peaches. Then cover the pan tightly with foil.
- Bake the peaches at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Take it out of the oven, but DON’T TURN OFF THE OVEN.
- Make the topping.
- Combine 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 1 1/2 teapoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon salt in the small bowl you used earlier.
- Cut in 1/2 stick softened butter with a couple of forks until the mixture looks like coarse oatmeal.
- Add the beaten eggs and mix them in with a fork. The result will resemble library paste.
- Remove the foil from the peaches and drop on spoonfuls of the topping. Because the topping is thick, you’ll have to do this in little dibs and dabs scraped from the spoon with another spoon, a rubber spatula, or with your finger. Dab on the topping until the whole pan is polka-dotted. (Don’t worry if some spots aren’t covered very well – the batter will spread out and fill in as it bakes.).
- Bake at 350 degrees, uncovered, for an additional 40 - 50 minutes.
- Can be served hot, warm, room temperature, or chilled.
