Peach Cobbler Topping
- 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour about 6 oz

- 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled
- 1/3 cup buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Cut and slice 5-6 cups of fresh, soft peaches. Add them to the bottom of an 8 by 8 glass pan (affiliate link). Add the brown sugar, flour, lemon juice, cinnamon and vanilla to the peaches and stir to combine.
To a bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter, buttermilk, egg and vanilla extract. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry and whisk together until no dry streaks remain.
Spread the batter over the top of the peaches.
Bake for 45-50 minutes until a toothpick is inserted into the center of the cobbler and no batter streaks remain.
Serve the cobbler warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
For canned or frozen peaches: Bring frozen peaches to room temperature and drain the excess liquid before using. Drain canned peaches before using. Add a Tablespoon or two of extra flour to the peach mixture before topping with cake topping.
Buttermilk substitution: If you don't have buttermilk on hand, substitute 3 Tablespoons sour cream with 2.5 Tablespoons milk, mixed together.
Peeled or unpeeled: Peaches can be peeled or unpeeled depending on your preference.
