Any millennials get sentimental when you hear the song Peaches by the Presidents of the United States of America? That song brings me back to junior high in a flash and of course inspired the title for this peach-cobbler post! I’ve been getting peaches almost every weekend at the local farmers’ markets and while my favorite way to eat peaches is over the sink, I thought it would be a shame not to make a peach cobbler this summer.
I’ll be real honest, I enjoy baking. I went a little crazy earlier in the summer with rhubarb so by the time August rolled around I decided to take the month off from all things calling for lots of butter and sugar. When I was looking around the web for a peach cobbler recipe I was having a hard time finding something healthy-ish but then found this recipe from Savory Simple!
What I liked most about Jen’s recipe is that is only called for a total of 4 T of butter and just 3 T of brown sugar and 2 T of white sugar. Many other recipes I found called for one cup of sugar which is a lot! My whole reason for doing a no-bake August was to cut back on all that excess sugar I was using to sweeten up rhubarb-anything so this recipe was a perfect fit for me!
I did change a few things on her recipe and it seemed to work well. Instead of all-purpose flour I used whole wheat and instead of whole milk I used Silk, Pure Coconut milk. Mine ended up with more of a crumble topping as opposed to a crust. You will notice that this isn’t a very sweet cobbler but the flavor of the peaches is quite delicious!
