Chef John's Peach Cobbler
August 11, 2012

I made this and was somewhat concerned it would be a failure because of all the neagative reviews and time/temp modifications suggested. Do not increase the temp or cooking time it was perfect as written. I turned the temp to 375 as suggested and the cobbler was browing was too fast. 350 is perfect. I used Vietnamese cinnamom instead of 5 spice powder and added a couple teaspoons of lemon juice to the peaches to keep the color bright and add freshness. As suggested, I did not add all the syrup to the the baking dish (discarded about 1/2 a cup). I wonder if some did not use self-rising flour. That is key. I used the recipe from this site for SR flour. Turned out perfect-golden brown, buttery and not too sweet. Served it warm with vanilla ice cream.
