Peach Cobbler

Peach cobbler is a classic Southern dessert and one of my favorites.  I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but this is a dish I cannot pass up.  I've made this cobbler several times and it's always a big hit and it's SO easy! Just make sure you use self rising flour.  If you do not have self-rising flour you can add 2 tsp baking powder to all-purpose flour but it doesn't turn out quite as good.  Top with your favorite vanilla ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy!

4 cups peeled, sliced peaches
2 cups sugar, divided
1 - 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup water
8 TBSP butter
1 - 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 - 1/2 cups milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the peaches, 1 cup sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and water in a saucepan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Put the butter in a 3-quart baking dish and place in oven to melt.

Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup. Sprinkle top with ground cinnamon. Batter will rise to top during baking. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour or until the cobbler is set.

To serve, scoop onto a plate and serve with your choice of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

  1. I love peach cobbler, too. I haven't put cinnamon in mine before. Sounds like a great addition.
