Nectarine cobbler cake is really yummy... .It has the fruit glistening on top and cake at the bottom.The whole house smells of the cinnamon now what more can I ask for!!
I don't know why I have ignored nectarines and peaches for quite a long time I was more worried about kiwis I think .I always looked up for recipes to salvage the over ripe one sitting on the counter.My girl being a fruit hater,never really bothered about anything but her bag of chips.ya... tusker likes fruits but he religiously sticks to his regular apple ,orange, banana routine.I don't mind any fruit as long as it is served to me washed cleaned and ready to eat .. oh ya ..did I say peeled too..:))
1.Bring 1/2 cup sugar, nectarine slices, and lemon juice to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly add cinnamon powder towards the end.Keep aside.
2..Melt butter in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish by simply cutting the stick into big pieces and put the dish in to the oven switched on for pre-heating to a really runny consistency .Once melted just swirl the tray so that the butter gets spread evenly .I know that"s lot of butter but that made the dish superb.
- 3.Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt.Add egg and milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter over butter (do not stir).
- 4.Carefully pour the nectarine mixture over the batter evenly .Remember do not stir ,so may be you can spread the fruit evenly by dropping slices on the batter
- 5.Bake at 375° for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve cobbler warm or cool with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
- Can be served with other fresh fruits too...
The sides may look slight burnt but does not affect the cake.The cake tends to pull from the sides too.
