It's a little more trouble to make a peach cobbler completely from scratch, pastry and all, but worth every minute! Absolutely delicious served warm with vanilla ice cream.


Serves: 18 

  • 2 1/2 cups (315g) plain flour
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 250g copha
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup (65ml) cold water
  • 1.5 kg fresh peaches - peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 1/4 cup (65ml) lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup (190ml) orange juice
  • 125g butter
  • 2 cups (440g) white sugar

  1. In a medium bowl sift together the flour, 3 tablespoons sugar and salt. Work in the copha with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and cold water. Sprinkle over flour mixture and work with hands to form dough into a ball. Chill 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Roll out half of dough to 3mm thickness. Place in a 20x30cm baking dish, covering bottom and halfway up sides. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. In a large saucepan, mix the peaches, lemon juice and orange juice. Add 125g butter and cook over medium-low heat until butter is melted. In a mixing bowl, stir together 2 cups sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and cornflour; mix into peach mixture. Remove from heat and pour into baked crust.
  4. Roll remaining dough to a thickness of 5mm. Cut into 1 cm wide strips. Weave strips into a lattice over peaches. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar and drizzle with 1 tablespoon melted butter.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until top crust is golden brown.
