Peach Cobbler

It was a cold Winter's day, a fire burning brightly in the fireplace -  a warm homely atmosphere. Reading magazines; watching movies and just relaxing - that is how this Peach Cobbler came about. Mark was reading the Go Magazine and showed me the recipes and of course my mouth started watering and I had to have something nice to eat. There was a Quince Cobbler Recipe with an option to use tinned fruit. I have never eaten a quince, I don't know what it is, but I did have tinned peaches and all the other ingredients. I have since changed the measurements of the ingredients and this is the only recipe that I have ever been able to tweak and change and each time I make it, it is a success. Sometimes I even add the peach syrup by pouring it over the peaches and mixture before adding the castor sugar. It is really optional, depending on how sweet you want it to be.

8 Tablespoons Butter
1.5 Cups Flour
4 Teaspoons Baking Powder
A Pinch Of Salt

5. Gradually Add The Milk And Mix Until You Have A Smooth Batter (I Use My Kenwood Mixer, But Should Be Done With A Wooden Spoon - Makes No Difference)
6. Pour The Batter Onto The Melted Butter In The Oven Proof Dish - DON'T STIR
7. Put The Peach Slices On Top Of The Batter And Sprinkle The Rest Of The Castor Sugar On Top (Optional - Pour Peach Syrup Over Peaches And Mixture Before Adding Castor Sugar - Don't Stir)
8. Put The Dish Back In The Oven; Close The Door And Turn Down The Heat To 180 C
