White peaches!

Oh, how I adore white peaches!

If you haven’t tried them, you must. I think they’re so much sweeter, juicier and less acidic than yellow peaches, which is probably because they’re white. Seriously. Once upon a time, I read that white flowers have to smell sweeter than brightly colored flowers to attract pollinators, and it makes sense. Think about it. White lilacs are sweeter than the purple ones, then there are sweet-as-sugar gardenias, lily of the valley whose tiny white bells produce a mighty fragrance, and little light pink violets that outshine their big purple siblings ten-fold in the heavenly scent department.

Maybe white-fleshed fruit varieties have to try twice as hard as their colorful counterparts as well.

I bought my white peaches at Costco, meaning I couldn’t just buy two or three, but rather had to purchase an entire bushel and a peck of peaches. We’re nearing the end of the bushel now, the peaches are at the peak of ripeness, and a simple, summery cobbler seemed the perfect way to honor their glory.

(Despite my love affair with white peaches, please realize that you can use the “other” peaches in this recipe as well.)

Here’s how you make it.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup unsalted butter

1 cup flour

2 cups sugar, separated

1 tablespoon baking powder

Pinch of salt

1 cup milk

4 cups fresh, peeled peach slices

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Ground cinnamon

(Gotta keep that sugar separated! I put one in “time out” on top of the cinnamon.)
Summery Peach Cobbler - Ingredients
Directions:

Melt butter in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Just pop this in your preheating oven, and your butter will melt in no time.

Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt; add milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter over butter (do not stir).

Bring remaining 1 cup sugar, peach slices, and lemon juice to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly; pour over batter (do not stir). Sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.

Layer upon layer of goodness!

Bake at 375° for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. The heavy peaches have sunk to the bottom, while the lighter batter has risen to the top to form a layer of cake with peach flavor mixed right in.

Eat on deck on a warm summer evening, for optimal satisfaction.

I mean, just look at that buttery, crunchy corner smothered in peachy goodness. It even broke itself off, inviting me to scoop its lusciousness up first.

Temptress!
