In a large bowl, combine peaches, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice and cornflour. Toss to coat evenly, and pour into a 2 litre baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Blend in butter with your fingertips, or a pastry blender, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in water until just combined.
Remove peaches from oven, and drop spoonfuls of topping over them. Sprinkle entire cobbler with the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Bake until topping is golden, about 30 minutes.
I agree that it is a delicious and relatively easy recipe to make. However I left it in the oven as long as was advised and it burnt a little bit. So I would reconsider how long you tell people to cook it for. I also agree with the above comment about doubling the batter mixture. I did that and turned mine then into 8 quennelles of about a tablespoonful each, just enough for a serve with the peaches around it. We also put it with Greek yoghurt. Yummy! - 22 Nov 2016
This was a very easy and tasty recipe. I used fresh ripe apricots as at the moment are in season. I used a dish same as shown in the picture/photo and the only thing I would change is perhaps a little liqueur that compliments the fruit used, for juice as it tended to be a bit dry and to double the batter mixture on the top as it tended to be a bit scarce.
