Make it for dessert tonight - easy peasy peach cobbler

This is a brilliant recipe because you can make it from pantry and fridge ingredients.  Having tinned fruit in your pantry is a lifesaver for when you feel like something sweet and can't be bothered making anything too laborious after a long day.  Sometimes just some tinned peaches with icecream can make me incredibly happy!   Peach cobbler is a winter dessert for me that just screams 'too easy'.  No mixers, no creaming, it's literally in the oven in 5 minutes after deciding you want to have it.  

You can use any fruit you like for this one - I love it with bananas too, or pears.. if you're doing it with pears, mix in some chocolate chips... you'll thank me later!

80g butter
1 cup plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 egg
2/3 cup milk
small tin sliced peaches

Preheat oven to 200 degrees c.  Place butter in the bottom of your baking dish and pop into the oven whilst it heats, it should melt in about 5minutes.

Whilst your doing that - combine flour,egg, baking powder, sugar and milk in a jug.
 Mix with a fork for a minute or so it will easily become a batter.

Take your tin of melted butter out of the oven and pour your batter over.  DO NOT MIX.  Place fruit on top. Again, do not mix!

Place in the oven, it will smell amazing within 5 minutes...

Bake for about 30 minutes until it's golden brown on top.  YUM!

Serve by itself, or with custard or cream...

It's pudding-y custard-y in the middle and crispy on the sides.. gotta love that!
