Peach Cobbler

Difficulty: Easy-Medium

Serves 6

Bringing my soul food series to a close is the delightfully comforting peach cobbler. Cobbler is one of those soul food desserts that just cannot be beat and I was surprised by not only the taste but the simplicity of putting it all together. Serve this one with a whipped or ice cream and you’ve got a bitchin’ winter warmer on your hands.


  • 3 cups tinned peaches, drained
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Nuttelex
  • 1/3 cup soy milk


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C and grease a rectangular oven dish.
  2. Pour the peaches into the bottom of the dish evenly.
  3. Combine the first lot of brown sugar, flour cinnamon and nutmeg, sprinkle over the top of the peaches and bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
  4. In a bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients before rubbing in the Nuttelex until the mixture is crumbly.
  5. Stir in the soy milk and vanilla to form a dough, add extra flour if necessary.
  6. Place the dough in lumps over the peaches (get some good coverage) and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden.
  7. Serve with ice cream.
