Peach Cobbler

The thought would never cross my mind to take a picture of my peach cobbler before we have eaten several extra-large chunks!  Or for that matter, as I am preparing it!

Week before last, Bill's Mom sent him home with a bit of cobbler and a bag of peaches.  The cobbler of course lasted all of 10 seconds after being pulled from the bag.  Lucky we still had the peaches for the next night to make another cobbler to satisfy our sweet tooth's again!

The recipe for those of you interested is:

1 cup of Self-rising Flour
1 cup of Milk
1 cup of Sugar
1/2 stick of butter
and 1 square glass baking dish (about 1/2 the size of the rectangular ones)
4-5 fresh peaches peeled and sliced/cubed

Pre-heat the oven to 375 f.  While the oven is pre heating, put the butter in the glass dish and put it in the oven to heat too.  

Sift together flour & sugar.  Add milk, mixing well with a whisk.  

When oven is completely preheated and butter is starting to bubble a little, take the dish out of the oven.  Please be mindful of not spilling the scalding hot butter when removing the dish.  

Pour the batter into the center of the dish.  Drop in peach pieces until you know you can fit (cram) no more.

Bake in the oven for 30-45 minutes.  The cobbler is ready when the top is a golden brown.

Great thing about this recipe, you can substitute other fresh fruits such as, black berries, blue berries, raspberries, etc.  Why not go a little wild and mix a few berries for a taste of the wild side.  Some folks like to mix the berries with sugar before mixing them in for added sweetness.  I like to pretend I am being a wee bit healthy by not 'over sugaring' the sweets! ha!

PS:  There is absolutely nothing healthy about this desert.  It is lip smacking sugary goodness. And so darn easy to boot!

Having been blessed with a serving of Stephanie's cobbler I can verify it's very tasty.

Oh my goodness...I read your post this morning while lying in bed and couldn't resist the idea of heading downtown to the Lexington Farmer's Market to get some of those large, deliciously juicy peaches (and kettle corn as well since it has become a ritual to do so every time we go - I even have a Kettle Masters frequent buyer card). I digress. The Peaches! Made a quick stop to the grocery for self-rising flour and a sifter and by lunchtime we were all eating on a delectable peach cobbler. I have never made one myself because a dear friend always made one especially for me. Her name was Myrna and she passed away three years ago - a lovely friend whom is missed very much. I haven't had peach cobbler since. Thank you for the recipe - it made my day purposeful and full of calories and brought back fond memories of a dear, kind friend.
Thank you!
