Peach Cobbler. Two simple words that cause so many emotions. Happiness, love, comfort, joy, hunger. Oh How I Love Thee!
Cobbler is a great dessert recipe to know since it is so easy and very versatile. Only some basic pantry ingredients are needed and seasonal fresh fruit. I made this last weekend for a southern themed dinner and since peaches are not in season, I used canned which makes cobbler even more versatile. Peach Cobbler does come with a warning, make sure to get your serving when it is ready because it will go fast! Here are the ingredients:

I like to use peaches in 100% juice.

1 Prep the baking dish. Preheat the oven to 350. When it is ready, place a whole stick of butter or 1/2 cup of butter in a 13×9 baking dish. Put the dish in the oven to melt the butter.
2 Heat the peaches. In a saucepan over medium high heat, add peaches and 1 cup sugar. If using canned peaches like me, add 2 cans drained and 2 cans undrained with the juice. If you are using fresh peaches, lucky you. Peel, pit and slice 4 cups of peaches. Add them with 1/2 cup of water. Low boil the peaches, stirring until all sugar dissolves. Remove from heat at 10 minutes.
3 Make the batter. In a mixing bowl, stir 1 cup of flour with 1 cup sugar. Add a pinch of salt too. Then add 1 cup of milk and 1 tsp vanilla. Mix until all dry ingredients are wet.
The vanilla is not traditional but I like it!

4 Put the cobbler together. In the dish with the melted butter, pour the batter. Do not stir. Now pour the peaches on top of the batter. I tend to pour down the center of the batter. However you chose to add the peaches, do not stir. Now sprinkle the top with cinnamon.
Peaches should be a little syrupy.

Peaches love cinnamon. If you are using a different fruit or just don’t like it, leave it off. It’s your cobbler.

5 Bake and serve. Carefully put the dish back in the oven. It will be loose. Bake for an hour. You will know when it is done by the golden brown crust on top and a little bubble action on the sides. The crust will pull away from the sides of the dish.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. A perfect southern dessert is ready! I say dessert but every man I have ever known, including my own, has eaten cobbler for breakfast.
