Peach Sinkers


Filling Ingredients:

  • 4-6 cups sliced peaches or two 29-ounce cans, drained
  • 1 can peach nectar, approximately 11 fl. oz.
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • Pecan or almond pieces
  • Raisins, as you prefer

Dough Ingredients:

  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • Grated lemon rind
  • 3 Tbsp. cooking oil
  • ¼ tsp. almond extract
  • ½ c. buttermilk   
  • Turbinado sugar for topping


Loosely based upon an old Betty Crocker cobbler recipe to be easily made when fresh ingredients are unavailable.

Combine filling ingredients in an oven-proof container and place into a cold oven.  Heat oven to 400° F.  Make dough while the filling is heating.  Mix dry dough ingredients, then cut oil into mixture until it is very finely crumbled.  Stir in buttermilk and almond extract.  Drop scoops of dough onto hot peach mixture.  Sprinkle tops of dough with turbinado sugar.  Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes.  

Serve warm with soy milk or ice cream.  It’s good for watching movies or winter games under a blanket.

Usually I double the dough.  Baking this cowboy style outdoors over coals requires a lid, but a heavy iron lid covered in hot coals will allow the dough to brown well.  The cooking time will change.

Blueberries or other fruit may be substituted for the peaches with adjustments to the seasonings.  Some liquid will still be needed because this is a cobbler, not a crisp.  Blackberries are a good addition in season.
