This is a bit of a stretch for my "Vintage Thingie Thursday" post, but it's baked in a vintage JAJ Pyrex dish! It's a "June Rose" pattern put out by JAJ (the Pyrex guys in Great Britain).


Everyone seems to have their own method of making a peach cobbler, so I combined a few different recipes and here's what I ended up with.

3/8 cup butter, melted and slightly browned
1/2 cup brown sugar (1/4 cup brown sugar Splenda)
1/2 cup sugar (1/4 cup Splenda, or just leave it out if you use the brown sugar Splenda- it's really sweet).
1/2 cup self rising flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup milk
6 nice fat peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced

For the topping:
2 tbsp butter, melted
1/3 cup oats (quick or regular, not instant)
1-2 tbsp brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 175 C (about 350 F).

Pour the melted and slightly browned butter into a high sided baking dish. Mix the sugars, flours, baking powder, cinnamon and milk. Pour the mixture over the butter. Don't stir it together! Spread the peaches over the top of the batter (again, don't stir it together).

For the topping, mix the oats, butter, and brown sugar together until you get a somewhat crumbly texture. Sprinkle it over the top of the peaches.

Bake for 40-45 minutes.

This is good served hot or cold and it would probably be really nice with ice cream too! It works well with nectarines too.

This sounds good. I don't think I ever met a peach cobbler that I didn't like. It's my absolute favorite. The vintage dish is nice.

Yum - peach cobbler! I'm feeling a bit vintage myself because I grew up with pyrex baking dishes. Still have some in the cupboard - must check them out....

Thank you for the recipe. I needed to know how to make a good peach cobbler. I like your vintage dish. My cobbler will have to be in a rather modern dish. Too sad... Take care.

Oh that looks delicious! And love the dish it's baked in! Thanks for sharing! said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've read yours and find it fascinating to see how different, yet the same we all are across this world. I will check in on you now that I know you're out there. I love reading your recipes and menus. Oh, and I have about 15 of the miniature tea sets. I don't actively collect them anymore - that was a short-lived collection. I still can't make myself get rid of them though. PAM
