Summer fruits from Eastern Washington farms are arriving in Seattle stores and that means it’s time for a couple generations below to learn how to make cobbler. I suggested fresh peaches as the base today and emailed the recipe. (I hope the girls read it before we get on Skype, but one never knows. At least they’ll have the printout to follow along, saving virtual recipe dictation and a bit of explaining.)
Cobblers are so easy to prepare by hand. Clean and slice fruit into the baking dish. Add a bit of lemon juice, sugars and cinnamon. Bake it for 10 minutes while preparing the cobbler batter. Spoon (or pour) the batter over the hot fruit. Sprinkle on a bit of cinnamon sugar and bake for 40-45 minutes at 350 degrees. Voila! Serve hot, warm or even cold for breakfast, lunch, brunch or dessert at dinner, plain or with a bit of whipped cream or ice cream. Leftovers never go to waste.
