PEACHES invited blueberries and Grand Marnier...
to kick off this very easy and quick delectable dessert.
these fruits were to be baked into...
"a peach cake for the gods".
great placebo to the aura of tranquil moments also ;o)
macerate the peach mix overnight for a more intense flavour.
but, to be quite honest, I thought I could forgo that part
as well as make a few changes along the way too.
did figure prominently into my state of mind.
Grand Marnier was screaming to enhance this lovely cake too.
keeping my guilt of packing on the pounds at it's lowest levels.
fabulous dessert while cutting the fat and calories.
especially since Mr. G. Marnier was there to sweeten things up a little ;o)
In addition...not because I don't have regular milk in my fridge...
I preferred going with my favourite replacement of almond milk instead.
Therefore, if you had a chance to visit the original recipe...
you can attest to the differences right away.
This shouldn’t stop you from trying both and doubling your sweet tooth pleasure ;O)
cobbler torte cake
. 1 cup (250ml) almond milk (any milk will do also)
. 1 tbsp. (15ml) vanilla extract
** Although, ‘white’ whole wheat flour' is similar to the nuttier tasting 'regular whole wheat flour'...it is somewhat distinguishable in flavour which is less bitter. This white variety also has a much lighter quality which gives a desirable texture for most baking.
NOTE: All-Purpose flour can replace the whole wheat flour partially or fully.
Pre-heat oven at 400F/200C/Gas6
. Meanwhile, as the oven is heating up, put the butter into the shallow pan and place into the oven for it to slowly start melting (takes about 10 minutes). Once melted, remove the pan from the oven.
. In another large bowl, prepare the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices. Whisk to blend and set aside.
. . In a small saucepan, pour the prepared fruit mix and bring it to a first boil. Now, reduce the heat to medium for 5 more minutes. This will concentrate the sweetness and reduce some moisture. Remove from the heat and set aside.
. Batter: Add the milk and vanilla to the flour mix. Give it a good whisk and pour this batter into the baking pan over the melted butter. With the whisk, give it a light swirl.
. Afterwards, spoon the warm fruit mix all over the batter. Now, sprinkle a generous amount of sugar over the surface.
at least until you see the golden crusted edge forming on the perimeter.
