This is a really delicious vegan dessert, and is very easy to make. You can serve it by itself, or you can add the icing and the garnish. Either way it’s oh so tasty. It also keeps well in the refrigerator for a day or two. Enjoy!

Ingredients

The Cobbler Cake

  • 3/4 cup flour – (all or part whole wheat)
  • 1/4 cup soy flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup soy milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 16-ounce can sliced peaches — well drained & cut into 1/2 inch pieces

The Vanilla Icing

  • 1 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegan margarine, melted
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla soy milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

The Garnish

  • Several large strawberries
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Powered sugar
  • 1 fresh peach

Directions

The Cobbler Cake

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl combine the flour, soy flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar. Stir together well.
  • Add soy milk and almond extract and stir just until blended. Gently stir in the well-drained and chopped peaches.
  • Pour the batter into an 8″ square baking pan coated with nonstick spray.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cut into rounds with a large biscuit cutter for a nice presentation, or squares to serve.

The Vanilla Icing

  • Combine all ingredients with enough soy milk to the desired consistency, less milk for a thicker consistency, more for thinner.
  • This is a very forgiving recipe, if it becomes too thin add more powdered sugar and too thick add more liquid until you’re happy with it.
  • Drizzle the icing over the top of the cake. A pastry bag and a small round decoration tip work perfectly for this.

To Serve

  • Serve by itself or with some vegan vanilla ice cream. To make a nice presentation you can use a spiral slicer to cut a strawberry lengthwise and place it on top of the cake. Then top that with a mint leave. Next take some powdered sugar and sprinkle around the edge of the plate, and then add some small slices of fresh peach.
