Easy Peasy Peach Cobbler!

 
 
 
 
We are getting into peach season here in southern Kentucky and there is nothing better in the fruit category, to me, than a juicy ripe peach right off of the tree.  I am actually not much of a fruit lover, mainly because so many fruits don't love me back or the acid in them doesn't, but peaches are just one of my favorites if they are in season.  Also, there are so many delicious things you make with peaches.  Peach cobbler is a huge favorite in our house and I actually have several different ways I make it depending on how much time I have when I make it.   This is one of the easiest ways to make any type of cobbler.  Here is what you need:
 
 
***4 cups of fresh peaches, peeled, pitted and diced
1  1/2 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup of butter (1 stick)
1 cup of self rising flour
1 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, divided
1 tsp. vanilla
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
 
***You can substitute 2 (15 oz.) cans of sliced peaches, undrained for the fresh peaches
 
Place the peeled and diced peaches in bowl with 1/2 cup of sugar.  Peaches are sweet naturally and don't require much sweetening. 
 
 
In a 9"x13" baking pan, melt the butter.
 
 
Mix together the milk, self rising flour,  1 cup sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 tsp. cinnamon until smooth.  Pour over the melted butter in the baking pan.  DO NOT STIR.
 
 
 
Lay the peaches over the batter and DO NOT STIR.   Sprinkle the top with the other 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon.  Place in the oven and bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until the top is brown.
 
 
 
This is best served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!

  1. This is my "famous" peach cobbler recipe too. To make mine a little different, I also sprinkle a little nutmeg on top before baking...it gives it a little extra something and its really yummy!

    1. Follow this recipe just like it says. The Bisquick is for a different recipe. Go back and you will see if you click on that it takes you to a Bisquick recipe site that you need to download. Thehe recipe above is very simple and delicious.

    1. Thank you for the "word association", Carolyn. That's how I remembered my mother-in-laws Banana nut bread recipe (And how I passed my State Board Exam...lol).
