I love it when peaches are in season! It means it is cobbler time. This simple peach cobbler recipe will sure to impress your friends and family, it is super easy to make, and it is pretty darn cheap as well. Let's get baking!
- 1 cup of All Purpose Flour
- 2 cups of Sugar
- 1/2 cup of unsalted butter
- 1 cup of milk
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 tsp of baking powder
- 5 to 6 medium peaches
- 1 lemon (for juice, 1 tbsp, zest)
- a few pinches of cinnamon
- a few pinches of nutmeg
Makes about 8 servings
First let's preheat our oven to 375 degree F. Now let's take a bowl and add our dry ingredients (Flour, salt, baking powder, and 1 cup of the 2 cups of sugar). Then go ahead and mix that together.
Now we need to melt our butter. I melt it in the microwave for 30 seconds or so. Then pour the butter into a dish. I use a 8inch by 11inch glass casserole dish, but you can use a metal one as well. If you want it fatter use a smaller pan, if you want it thinner use a bigger pan. I really like the 8x11 size the best.
Now we take our milk and pour it into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Mix that together well until it forms a nice batter.
Then pour that into the middle of your dish that has the butter in it. Don't mix the batter with the butter. Leave it alone. :)
Now we add our peaches, 1 cup of sugar, lemon zest, and lemon juice and cook it at medium high heat until it starts to boil. Constantly stirring.
Now we pour our peaches onto the middle of our batter. Gently spread them around with a wooden spoon, no mixing or stirring at this point.
Next we have our optional step, we dust the top with some cinnamon and nutmeg. In my book it really isn't optional, gotta love me some cinnamon and nutmeg...mmm
Now bake it in your preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes until the top is nice and golden brown. Then Eat it!!!
