Blogging Marathon #19
Theme: Cooking with Tea/Coffee
I know my regular readers are a little sick of peach recipes at this point, but that's what happens when you go peach picking at a local farm and come back with many pounds of peaches. Other fruit can easily be substituted in this recipe, like mango, nectarines, raspberries or blueberries.
Cobbler is a classic American dessert, especially popular in the regional cuisine of the southern United States. Peach and blueberry are the most common flavors. Fruit is topped by biscuit dough and baked until fruit is all bubbly and thickened. Usually served with ice cream or whipped cream, it is a decadent dessert usually reserved for holidays, especially popular at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
This unique cobbler is made with a coffee biscuit dough.
Coffee Peach Cobbler(click here for printable recipe)
4 cups peaches, pitted and sliced (about 6 peaches)
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar +1 tablespoon, seperated
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons instant expresso coffee powder
1/2 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons oil
Preheat oven to 375 F.
In a bowl, combine peaches, flour, nutmeg and the 1/4 cup sugar. Toss and let sit while you prepare the biscuit dough.
In a bowl, combine the 2 tablespoons sugar with the flour, baking powder, baking soda, coffee powder and mix well. Add oil and sour cream and mix until a soft dough is achieved.
Place the peaches in a casserole dish.
Drop the dough onto the peaches by the spoonful. There will be gaps and that is alright.
Sprinkle remaining tablespoon of sugar on top.
Bake in oven for 30 minutes.
Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
This can be served warm or cold, although I prefer it warm.
