1/2 Photos of Southern Bourbon Fresh Peach Cobbler

MC Baker's Note:
I've pieced it together from a few recipes to get the balance I like between fruit and topping. It's great for serving to guests and definitely best with some ice cream. This is also great vegan with water or apple juice replacing the buttermilk, and margarine instead of butter. You could even serve it with tofrutti ice cream.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 4 cups yellow peaches, sliced and pealed (blanch in boiling water for about 30s depending on ripeness and skins should slip off)
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 fluid ounce Bourbon (optional)
- 2 tablespoons fruit jam, blueberry and blackberry are very nice
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup melted butter
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1Preheat oven to 350°F.
- 2Reserve peals and pits from peaches.
- 3Mix sliced peaches, sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon powder in a bowl and reserve.
- 4Combine bourbon (Maker's Mark is really good in this), orange juice, lemon juice, lemon zest, fruit jam, cinnamon stick, and peach scraps in a sauce pan, bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer and reduce mixture for approximately 10 minutes.
- 5Mix flour, buttermilk, baking powder, baking soda and salt with a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg and set aside or in refrigerator for a few minutes. I have also used Dry Buttermilk Pancake Mix and 1/2 cup milk in place of the flour, buttermilk, baking powder and baking soda.
- 6Strain reduced orange juice mixture and mix with peaches.
- 7Pour melted butter into an 8x11" baking pan.
- 8Spoon dough mixture over butter evenly, but leaving some gaps (this helps the dough rise over the peaches later.
- 9Pour peaches over dough.
- 10Bake for about 1 hour at 350F, or until the crust has risen to top of cobbler and crisped slightly. Can add a bit of sugar to top of cobbler just before finished and place in broiler to get a crisper caramelized topping, but beware this can be tricky.
