Peach cobbler

This is Chef John's recipe (more or less). You have to use self-rising flour, or else you wind up with peach flavored wall paper glue. Trust me, I tried it. For some reason, the usual baking powder, etc replacement for self-rising flour doesn't work in this recipe.

3 large yellow peaches
1/8 tsp cinnamon
0.5 tsp lemon zest
0.5 cup water
0.5 cup sugar

0.25 cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
0.75 cup self-rising flour
0.25 tsp salt
0.75 cup milk
0.25 tsp almond extract

Melt the butter in a 2-quart ceramic or glass baking dish. Peel the peaches and mix with cinnamon and lemon zest. Bring the water and sugar to a boil, add the peaches and simmer for 2 minutes. Set aside.

Mix the flour, sugar and salt. Add in the milk and whisk until well-blended. Mix in the almond extract.

Pour the batter into the melted butter in the baking dish. Scoop the peaches carefully on top. Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 45-60 minutes. Serve somewhat cooled.
