While this is not the peach cobbler of my dreams, it's pretty good (and looks better in real than in the photo). It is not the traditional peach cobbler, made with biscuit dough (like the one I made here), but rather has a soft cake-like topping.
The time suck of most peach recipes is peeling the fruit. This is *supposed* to be easily accomplished by placing the peaches in boiling water for a few minutes and then slipping their jackets off. This technique only worked for some of them; most were peeled the old-fashioned way, using a paring knife, tedious work indeed.
Mix up the batter and pour half into the pan, in which you've already melted "one cube" of butter by placing the pan in the preheated oven.
Place the sliced peaches atop the batter. You're supposed to mix the peaches with sugar and lemon juice first, but I was on the phone while baking (not recommended) and consequently misread the recipe. I simply sprinkled the sugar and lemon juice atop the peaches, and it was fine. I also used a combination of white and yellow peaches.
Spoon the remaining batter on top.
Cool before cutting.
In addition to picking regular peaches, we also picked donut peaches which were delicious and seem to grow right on the branches. But I used only regular peaches in the recipes.
