I know it sounds completely wacky, but it is unbelievably delicious. If you've ever enjoyed a fruit-and-cheese Danish, you know that mixing cheese with fruit really isn't that crazy. It works so well together. These are time-tested flavor combinations.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Pour 2 teaspoons melted butter into the bottoms of two 6-ounce glass or ceramic ramekins.

  • Combine self-rising flour with 1/2 cup sugar in a bowl; whisk in milk to make a smooth batter. Whisk Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and black pepper into the batter; divide equally between the prepared ramekins.

  • Place peach slices into a bowl and top with 2 tablespoons sugar and basil. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and water; mix. Allow peaches to rest and let sugar draw out the moisture, about 10 minutes. Divide sliced peaches and their juice over the batter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cobbler batter rises up over the peaches and cobblers are browned and bubbling, about 35 minutes. Let cool for about 20 minutes before serving for cobblers set up. Serve warm.

Very disappointing. My ramekins were too small so I made this cobbler in a small rectangular glass loaf pan. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. The cobbler turned out rather stodgy (heavy). The flavours were very good but the texture of the cake part was not. I will probably try the savoury flavour combination with peaches.... in a different recipe. Read More

I really enjoyed the addition of fresh basil and the parmesan was nice as well. I'm not so sure about the pepper though. I suspect the grind on my pepper mill was set too course because some bites were quite potent with black pepper! Read More
