I always loved summer fruit so more than winter fruit. It makes me so happy. And nectarines come in at a close first place right behind blueberries as my fav fruit of all time. So making peach cobbler (every week!) over the summer is just a must here at the Buckmans. But obviously had to give it a healthy twist.
This recipe uses lower glycemic index sugars ie no white sugar and whole spelt flour, so a great Shabbat treat for those of you watching your sugar levels (even though it def still is one of those high carb foods, but hey, treats are important). The amount of oil used is also at a minimum and it goes unnoticed. It really is a slice of heaven that makes no sense.
It’s quick and easy, and a crowd pleaser. I really am not joking when I say I make this every Shabbat. Seriously, you won’t ever look back.
The maple syrup really develops the flavor in the crust here. It gives the cobbler a warm, rich punch of flavor that offsets the tartness from the fruit. so try not to sub it out with another sweetener. Also, You can 100% add in other fruits to accompany the peaches. I often throw in some blueberries, and I’m sure some cranberries or even blackberries would be marvelous as well. In the winter months, you can swap out the nectarines/peaches for pears or apples, and It’ll be lovely. This is seriously a super star recipe, please go make it and thank me later 😉
