Peach Cobbler
(Or Blackberry or Blueberry)
1 8" x 8" casserole dish
7 medium size fresh peaches
(or 2 1/2 cups of berries)
3 cups of water
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 stick of butter
1 cup of self-rising flour
1 cup of milk (not skim)
1 cup of sugar

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
1.  Peel and slice peaches.

2.  Make a simple syrup by bringing 3 cups of water
and 1 1/2 cups of sugar to boil.

3.  Add sliced peaches and simmer 15-20 minutes.

4.  Melt the stick of butter in an 8x8 casserole dish.

5.  Mix one cup of self-rising flour, one cup of sugar, and one cup of 2% or whole milk with wire whisk until all lumps are gone and it is smooth!

6.  Pour this batter over the melted butter and DO NOT STIR!

7.  Gently ladel in the peaches and simple syrup over batter. 

8. Slide into pre-heated 350 degree oven.

9.  Bake 35-45 minutes (you know your oven) until cobbler
is golden brown and crust has risen to the top!

Serve the cobbler while warm and
with a scoop (or three) of vanilla ice cream on top.
This happens!

My husband likes the cobbler to be juicy, so I will often pour some
of the extra warm simple syrup over the top before serving.  If you don't have fresh peaches, you may substitute canned peaches (sliced in syrup).

Hi there Siesta! I tried this recipe tonight, but i failed miserably. tell me... might it be the fact that i used regular flour and not self-rising?? i only thought of that after i sampled it and the cobbler part of it was dense and chewly, like it hadn't risen. (Eureka!!) sadly, i thought flour was flour, until now. i'm definitely going to try this again if you think that might have been my problem. :-D

blessings to you!

Georgia Jan said...

Oh Jackie! Yes mam - you MUST use self-rising flour. That's what makes the delicious crust rise up through the peaches and milk batter to form the topping!

Try again and use Self-Rising flour. I use White Lily myself - but depending on where you live, it may not be available.

Us Georgia peaches love White Lily flour.

But I am so glad you tried the cobbler - you'll do just fine - make another one!

I just loved seeing the southern bakers best friend - White Lily - on your counter. It was my mother's favorite brand and it was also milled close to her home. After she and my dad moved away, she would always stock up on White Lily when they returned to the area.

I am hoping the Salesman and I will do our joint blackberry picking tomorrow and I will try your cobbler recipe. The field still has the big bales of hay in it; but there are so many bushes on the edges of the property that he usually just drives me around in this truck and I am able to just sit and pick through the truck window! It's always a fun little adventure.

Your peaches and my berries are just too many miles apart. Love you dear one,

PS So glad you emphasized the DO NOT STIR - I would have been tempted to stir!

elizabeth said...

Oh my stars that looks delicious! And I was just admiring the peaches in the store last night, so guess what I might be doing today? :)

rooney said...

I tried again and it turned out delicious!! i did learn in a magazine i browsed at the library, the easiest way to peel a peach is to blanch it for 30 seconds. i tried it this time around and the skins slid right off. very little mess.
i will definitely make this again!
