This is my very first cobbler. One of my best friends has a peach tree in her back yard and apparently it is producing a ton of peaches this year. Needless to say she had more peaches than she could handle, so she passed several on to me along with this Peach Cobbler recipe from Paula Deen. I was surprised just how easy making a cobbler is and the ingredients are so simple. I was wonderful served warm with some vanilla ice cream!
From: Paula Deen
4 cups peeled, sliced peaches (about 7 medium peaches)
2 cups sugar, divided
8 tbsp butter
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cup self rising flour
1 1/2 cup milk
cinnamon to taste, optional
Preheat oven to 350.
Bring peaches, sugar and water to a boil in sauce pan; mix well. Let simmer 10 min on low.
Remove from heat.
Put butter in 3qt baking dish and place in oven to melt.
Meanwhile, combine the rest of the sugar and flour together in a bowl. Slowly stir in milk to prevent clumping.
Pour batter directly over buttered dish; do not stir.
Spoon peaches on top of batter evenly. Then drizzle the syrup on top. Sprinkle top with cinnamon.
Bake 35-40 minutes.
Serve with ice cream. :)
