Peach Cobbler

Our peach cobbler is a tasty, no-fuss dessert that will hit the spot just right. Serve with lashings of vanilla ice cream.


  • 2 tins peaches
  • 120g caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 150g plain flour
  • 150g butter, cubed, plus extra for greasing
  • 1 small egg
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Vanilla ice cream, to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 180℃/160℃ fan/gas mark 4. Grease your Cooks Professional cast iron roasting dish with butter, then lay the drained peaches along the base. Sprinkle roughly 2 tbsp of the caster sugar and ground ginger over the peaches, then set the dish to one side.
  2. In your Cooks Professional stand mixer combine the flour, remaining caster sugar, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Mix until combined, then add the cubed butter. Continue mixing until it resembles breadcrumbs, then add the egg. Finish mixing until the ingredients come together to form a thick dough.
  3. Spoon the dough mixture in dollops over the prepared peaches. Make sure to create a good covering, but leave some gaps for the dough to spread into. Sprinkle a little bit of caster sugar over the top, then bake in the oven for roughly 40 minutes, or until golden.
  4. Remove from the oven and allow to stand for 5 minutes, then serve with lashings of vanilla ice cream.
