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.
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.
