Peach Cobbler

For those of you who do not necessarily know what a cobbler is, I can tell you that it is one of the tastiest and simple to assemble, not to mention its versatility.
It can probably be called a summer dessert, but using the wonderful wonder called frozen fruit

from your freezer section of your local can make it all year long and virtually with any choice of fruit you have on hand.
Short of maybe peaches in this case, I'm pretty sure you already have everything on hand, and I suggest you give it a try....maybe even tonight, why not ?
Shall we get to cooking now ?

1 cup all purpose flour or 125 gr
1 and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 pinch salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup sugar or Splenda, if you have it
1/4 cup sugar or Splenda
1/2 to 2/3 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted (8 TBSP)
6 cups sliced peaches


Preheat the oven to 350 F and have a shallow baking dish handy.
Combine the fruit with the 1/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon,

then spread it evenly in the dish.

In a glass bowl combine the flour, the 1 cup sugar/Splenda, the lightly beaten egg, pinch of salt and the baking powder until it reaches a crumbly consistency

and then sprinkle it over the fruit.

Melt the butter or margarine and pour over the sprinkled flour mixture.

Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until it looks lightly golden.

Serve hot by itself or paired with ice-cream.

I cannot wait to make this again !
