Sourdough Peach Cobbler

|

Nothing says summer like a warm peach cobbler, in my humble opinion! This sourdough peach cobbler is a healthier version of a long time favorite!

As you know, I try to make every bread product a sourdough version. Even when making sweets, I prefer a long fermented sourdough bread component.

We have a peach tree out back that just started producing this year. My husband has been so much time working these up for us as I work on other preserving projects in the kitchen. We have been freezing them for milk kefir smoothies, but, decided a sourdough peach cobbler was in order to celebrate our first peaches!

Even though we are nearing fall, summer is still in full swing on the Homestead! We are packing in produce daily and working hard to preserve it for winter. I do love fall, but, I try not to hurry the seasons. I strive to find the joy in each and every frame of time we are in. Peaches are one of those joys in summer time!

This recipe doesn’t have a lot of ingredients, so, I try to source the best ingredients for the most flavorful cobbler!

For the recipe, I am making a sourdough sweet biscuit! This is like my usual sourdough biscuit recipe, however, with a little sweetness added.

For the fruit portion, I use raw sugar, grassfed butter, and high quality salt. I find that when a recipe has so little ingredients, the choices need to be of the highest quality.

To make this recipe, you will need:

For the biscuits:

  1. Sourdough Starter
  2. Flour
  3. Olive oil
  4. Salt
  5. Baking powder
  6. Baking soda
  7. Honey
  8. Milk

For the fruit mixture:

  1. Peaches
  2. Salt
  3. Sugar
  4. Butter
  5. Cinnamon
  6. Nutmeg
  7. Vanilla

The night before you want to make this, add the flour to a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil and mix until it is crumbly. Add the sourdough starter, milk, and honey. Mix well.

Cover and allow to ferment overnight at room temperature.

The next morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium cast iron skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of butter on medium heat. Add the peaches, cinnamon, sugar, salt, vanilla, and nutmeg. Stir over medium heat until the peaches start to soften, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, add the salt, baking powder, and baking soda to the biscuit mixture and combine well.

Turn over onto a lightly floured surface. Roll out to 1/2 inch thick and cut out the biscuits with a biscuit cutter or a mason jar lid.

Place the biscuits on top of the peach mixture. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.

Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!
