Easy Peach Cobbler

Hey Yall!!!!  I missed all of you and I missed blogging the last few weeks due to flu and sinusitis….I told you pollen and I have a love/hate relationship…lol…however, I’m back…nothing can keep me down for too long! I’m so glad to be back! What have you been cooking while I was away?

This post will be short but super sweet! I want to give you one more of what I call a cool weather recipe yet it tastes great in any season. It can be made anytime and it really hits the spot during the summer with a cold scoop or two of vanilla ice cream. I found the original recipe in one of Paula Dean’s recipe books a while ago.  Although it tastes great as is, I thought it needed something. The original recipe didn’t include any spices or flavoring. So I decided to add my own twist to this great yet quick classic. You can change the spices to suit your taste or leave them out altogether.  

I’ve had a lot of friends tell me how they’ve enjoyed it and it’s always a hit when the family gets together! Let me know what you think. Did I mention that it takes less than an hour from start to finish?….well it does and it’s so worth it!  Let’s cook!

 

Easy Peach Cobbler

Ingredients:

1 stick of unsalted butter

1 cup of self rising flour

1 cup of sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp allspice

1 tsp vanilla

3/4 cup of whole milk

3 cups of sliced peaches in the syrup

 

Directions:

  1. Place the stick of butter in a baking dish (9 x 13). Place it in the oven on 350° F. Allow the butter to melt. (It will only take a few minutes).
  2. While the butter is melting, in a large medium mixing  bowl, combine the next five ingredients. No need to sift if you use a large fork to stir. Just make sure it’s combined well.
  3. Create a well in the bowl and add your milk slowly to avoid lumps. Stirring the mixtures until it comes together. Then add your vanilla.
  4. The butter should have melted by now and been removed from the oven. Yes, you will now add the wet mixture to the baking dish while it’s hot. Now spoon the peaches on top of the mixture…DO NOT STIR…pour the syrup over the entire mixture.
  5. Bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes on 350° F.  It will be golden brown and bubbly when done.
  6. Enjoy hot or wait until it cools a little so you won’t burn your mouth. Smile…it always makes me smile.

 

Sometimes, I just can’t wait until it cools. It’s so delicious. You can use just about any fruit in this quick recipe. It can be fresh, frozen, or canned. I’ve tried them all and it works well with each.

Hi, I'm Sheca and cooking is my largest passion. Who says you can't love more than one thing...or at least try other things...food is the love that binds us all together. We all have to eat! So please take some time and cook with those you love. I'm a 40 something mom, daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend. Basically...I'm just like you. The woman who goes to work 40 or more hours per week and still finds the time to cook for those I love. I'm a country girl...a southern country girl at that and proud of it...lol...I was raised in a small town on the coast of North Carolina near the awesome beaches in Brunswick County. You know the place when you drive through and blink, you may just miss it. I'm okay with that. I've come to enjoy the quiet peace that my hometown offers me after a long work day in Wilmington, NC. I'm surrounded by family! Thank you for checking out my blog and I hope you enjoy the information I place here. Maybe even learn something along the way or get a good chuckle or both. Laughter is food for the soul, we all need that in our lives.
