It's getting to be that time of the year again...peach season! With this cobbler recipe you will be leaving everyone who tastes it saying, with good 'ol southern charm, "ain't she a peach!" With freshly cut peaches and warm cinnamon butter wrapped into this dish, nothing could be more perfect!
-3 1/2 cups of peaches, sliced and peeled (add more or less depending on your personal preference)
-2 cups sugar, divided
-1/2 cup water
-1 stick of butter
-1 1/2 cup self-rising flour
-1 teaspoon salt
-1-2 heaping tablespoon of cinnamon
-1 heaping tablespoon of nutmeg
What to Do?
Step one: Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Step two: Combine peaches, 1 cup of sugar, and water in a saucepan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 6 minutes. Remove from heat.
Step three: Put the butter in a baking dish (I recommend 3 quart baking dish for this recipe) and place in the oven to melt for 1-2 minutes.
Step four: Mix remaining 1 cup of sugar, flower, milk, and salt. Stir slowly to prevent clumping.
Step five: Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit mixture on top and gently pour in the syrup from the peach mixture. Sprinkle top with cinnamon and nutmeg.
Step six: Bake for 30-45 minutes
To serve, scoop onto a plate (or eat it right out of the pan!) and serve with vanilla ice cream and whip cream. Smile and enjoy!
I started and sell my baked goods at the Chesapeake farmers market in Chesapeake, VA with my family. Everything I know, I learned from my mother. I try to bake with what is fresh and local. Check out www.farmchicksproduce.com for more awesome recipes.
