“There was a time when being called a shoemaker was the ultimate kitchen insult. It meant that your cooking skills were so weak, the cobbler down the street could have come into the kitchen and done just as well. This beautiful peach cobbler recipe is so easy, any shoemaker could master it.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Combine peaches, Chinese five-spice powder, and lemon zest in a bowl.
  3. Stir sugar and water together in saucepan pan over medium heat until simmering, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in peach mixture; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Combine sugar and self-rising flour in a large bowl. Pour in milk; whisk to form a smooth batter.
  5. Pour melted butter into a Dutch oven. Pour batter over the melted butter.
  6. Gently place peaches and syrup on top of batter. As the cobbler bakes, they will sink down into the batter.
  7. Bake until syrup is bubbling and crust has risen and is golden brown, about 50 minutes.

We didn't like the Chinese five spice powder flavor. It was just an off taste to us.

Very simple and easy recipe! Only thing I did different was up the temp to 375 and bake time to 55 minutes! I knew from previous cobbler recipes I had tried that the bake time and temp may be a little off! But the final result was eXcellent!

I didn't have any Chinese 5 Spice, so I substituted Pumpkin Pie Spice and some ground chipotle. The flavors were fantastic, but there was SO much liquid in the finished product. I'll cut the simple syrup to half a cup next time, which ought to do the trick.
