Peach cobbler! Yummmm! Y'all will flip when you read how many ingredients this recipe has!
It's so simple and easy.
My parents came down to visit us last year and I was *bragging* about this recipe to my mom. She wanted me to make it and wanted to help. Imagine my shock when we started making the recipe together and she blurts out to me, "Libby, this recipe isn't new to me! I used to make this when you and your sister were younger." Here I was, thinking I stumbled upon a recipe that my mother had never heard of (since she is the queen of cooking in my book)....only to find out that she knew about it all along.
I really wish I had discovered this a long time ago because I always thought cobbler was a complicated dessert to make. My kids and I actually made this yesterday because of it's simplicity.
Although we have just used peaches with it, I have heard that you can actually use any type of fruit or fruit combinations for this recipe. That's the beauty of it. You don't have to just stick with peaches.
Quick and Easy Peach Cobbler(serves 6-8)
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
1 stick butter, melted
2 tsp. baking powder
3 cups of chopped fresh peaches (with skin removed and sliced/chopped) or 2 cans of peaches (save a little of the syrup that comes in the cans)
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. lemon extract
Melt butter and place in a 9x13 inch baking pan.
Stir the milk and lemon extract in with butter.
Mix together both sugars, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour it into the baking pan and stir mixture around until lumps are gone and it looks well blended.
Place the peaches over the mixture. If using the canned kind, pour the syrup in as well.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until top turns a little brown.
Serve with vanilla icecream or whipped cream.
**Libby's Notes: I added cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon extract, and replaced 1/4 cup of the white sugar with brown sugar. If you like your cobbler plain, feel free to omit all of this and keep the white sugar at 1 cup.**
