While chatting away to the usual people on social media, someone announced she was making a peach cobbler, which inspired me. I looked around for the tastiest looking recipes and could instantly see how easily veganizable this recipe is. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any fresh peaches anywhere, so I had to use tinned peaches in syrup. Nonetheless, the recipe turned out splendid, and I highly recommend this easy to make dessert that goes great with vegan ice-cream or vegan cream. For your interest, peach cobbler was popular with English settlers in America.
- You can use either peaches in a tin can or fresh ones. Bear in mind that the tinned ones are likely to be sweeter because of the syrup. You can use a bit of the syrup too in the recipe, which is why I use less sugar with the tinned peaches.
- You can use water instead of vegan milk if you want. I used rice milk because it has a body and sweetness I find soya milk lacks. You can use soya or oat milk or cashew milk, though.
Serves 4 – 5
- 80g of vegan batter
- 150g of granulated sugar
- 136g of white all-purpose flour
- 1.5 tsp of baking powder
- 1/4 tsp of salt
- 3/4 cup of rice milk
- Ground cinnamon
- 5 peeled peaches or 1 tin of peaches in syrup
- 30g of granulated sugar if you are using tinned peaches, or 50g if you are using fresh peaches.
- Pinch of salt
- A 23 × 30 cm baking dish
- Medium saucepan
- Mixing bowl
- Preheat the oven to 180C.
- Melt the butter in the baking dish by putting it in the oven for a few minutes. It helps if you cut the butter up first.
- Tip the peaches into a medium-sized saucepan and add the sugar (and some syrup from the tin can if you are using tinned peaches).
- You only need to heat the peaches and sugar up a little, so a medium heat
is enough. Heat for just a few minutes while stirring, so it doesn't stick
to the bottom. Remover completely from the heat while you quickly make the batter.
- In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir the milk in genitally until combined. Pour the mixture into the pan, over the melted butter. DON'T MIX! (See figure 1)
- Pour the peaches over the batter and dust with cinnamon. Again DON'T MIX! (See figure 2)
- Bake in the oven at 180C for about 40 minutes on the middle self.

This had a very sweet taste with wonderful crunchy bits. The flavour of the peach and cinnamon comes through strong.
