Peach Cobbler Recipe

I made this recipe to serve along side the Professor’s birthday cake …..this past weekend.  Oh, so delicious !!!  Wishing my husband, Terry Cooper a very Happy Birthday!!  (In my opinion – When we get to a certain age, we can celebrate birthday weeks!!)
For the cobbler:
1/2 cup (1 stick)of butter
1 cup of sugar
3/4 cup self-rising flour
(or 3/4 cup of all purpose flour w/ 2 tsps of baking powder)
3/4 cup of milk
For the fruit:
1 can (28 ounce) peaches in heavy syrup,
OR
2 cups of fresh sliced peaches
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water1 tbsp cinnamon (for sprinkling on top)
1 tbsp of nutmeg (for sprinkling on top)
2 tbsp of sugar (for sprinkling on top)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Put the butter in a 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking dish and place in the oven until the butter melts. Remove from oven and set aside.

In a bowl, mix together the flour and sugar and stir in the milk. Batter will have a few lumps but that’s okay.

Pour the batter on top of the melted butter.

If using fresh Georgia peaches, put fresh sliced peaches, sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.  I used the fresh peaches that I ‘canned’  last summer; I stored in 2-cup packages using the  FoodSaver V3835 Vacuum Food Sealer with SmartSeal Technology, Silver/Black then placed them in the freezer.  They were as fresh tasting  as when I stored them away last summer.  This is always a great way to store fresh fruit for use any time of the year.

Spoon fruit on top of batter and then slowly pour the liquid on top of that. Be careful not to mix the fruit INTO the batter. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Bake for 35 to 45 minutes. Batter will rise to the top while baking to make an amazing crust!  I know you will enjoy this recipe as much as I do. We do love this Peach Cobbler Recipe here in Texas!!

I also enjoy using my FoodSaver and take it inside my RV kitchen everywhere I go!!
