Crispy Peach Cobbler

    1 hour 35 minutes

    Chef John's version of a cobbler, using rolled oats, is a lot crispier than a regular cobbler. You can use this technique for other fruit cobblers. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 6 large fresh peaches, pitted and cut into eighths
    • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
    • Batter
    • 115g unsalted butter, at room temperature
    • 1 1/4 cups caster sugar
    • 1/3 cup rolled oats
    • 1 1/3 cups self-raising flour
    • 2/3 cup milk
    • 1/4 cup caster sugar
    • 2 tablespoons cold water, or as needed to wet topping sugar

    1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Place a baking tray on the rack under the middle rack to catch drips. Generously grease a 1.5 litre (6-cup) baking dish.
    2. Place peach into prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with lemon juice and zest.
    3. Make the batter

    4. Stir butter and 1 1/4 cups sugar together in a mixing bowl. Mix until creamed and resembles a sugary, buttery paste, 4 to 5 minutes. Add oats and flour; stir until flour and oats are incorporated into the butter-sugar mixture and mixture resembles coarse crumbs, 4 to 5 minutes. Pour in milk; stir until mixture is wet and creamy, like a thick spreadable batter.
    5. Drop batter by spoonful on top of the peaches. Spread batter evenly over the surface of the peaches. Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar on the batter. Spritz with water until sugar is wet and surface glistens.
    6. Bake in oven on middle rack until browned and crispy, about 45 minutes. Let cool at least 30 minutes before serving.

    Chef's Note:

    To make your own self-raising flour, whisk 1 1/3 cups plain flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon fine salt together in a bowl.
