Peach Cobbler Recipe

The lazy days of summer are coming to a close. (Tear) One of the best ways to mark the passing of summer into fall is when the ripe, juicy peaches come into season. Yum! August means nature’s candy is in full bloom.

They’re begging to be eaten, canned or baked into peachy goodnesss. Yesterday I found myself with several ripe peaches that needed to be used before they went wrong, so that meant figuring out a peach cobbler recipe. I didn’t have one I routinely used so I modified a Paula Deen recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups sliced, peeled peaches (about 5 peaches)
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • cinnamon, nutmeg

Serves: 6

Directions:

1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Wash, peel and slice peaches.

3. Put the butter in a 9 inch pie pan and place in the oven to melt it.

4. Combine peaches, 1/2 c sugar and the water. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

5. Combine remaining ingredients (flour, baking powder, 1/2 c sugar, and milk) and stir slowly to prevent clumping. Pour directly on top of melted butter, do not stir. Spoon peaches on top and add about 1/2 the syrup produced in the boiling process. Sprinkle with cinnamon and just a touch of nutmeg.

6. Bake for 40-45 minutes.
