This is a real Texas peach cobbler with an abundance of juicy fruit and a sweet, biscuit-like batter topping that is crunchy on the surface and doughy inside. This recipe comes from Cheryl and Bill Jamison.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a bowl, mix together all the filling ingredients.
- Set aside.
- The filling will be a bit juicier than most pies.
- Melt butter in a 9x13 baking dish in the oven.
- In another bowl, stir together flour, sugar, and baking powder, and then add the milk.
- Mix until lightly blended.
- Spoon the mixture evenly over the melted butter.
- DO NOT STIR.
- Pour the peach filling evenly over batter.
- Bake 45 minutes.
- Serve warm, with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream if desired.
This was really easy to make. Only problem was I had to buy frozen peaches because pipe peaches were not available, so I had to guess at the amount of peaches. I used 3 one pound bags and that my be too many peaches. Another thing I did was squeeze a fresh lemon for the lemon juice and ended up with more than 1 teaspoon of juice. So I decided to throw it all in. When I tasted the result of my work, I would have to warn you to watch out. Only eat this in a setting down position. It tasted so good that it made me weak in the knees, and the fall from a standing position could injure you. Enjoy everyone!!
This is soooooo good. I was too impatient to try it. Couldn't wait for fresh peaches so I used 4 pounds of frozen peaches. Way too many. I did not use the lemon juice because the peaches were frozen. But, goodness, this is an excellent recipe. I baked it much much longer. Like 2 hours rather thank 45 minutes, but again, I believe I used too many peaches. It is a keeper. I will certainly have it again. Thanks Ms. Annie. UPDATE: I just have to rate this again. I made this, 1/2 the recipe, with fresh peaches this time. Excellent. I cannot praise this recipe enough. Gosh it is GREAT.
Peaches flavored with cinnamon, ginger and vanilla - enhanced with lemon and sugar then poured over a batter sitting on a layer of melted butter. Pop it in the oven and --- send everyone else out or to their rooms. Grab a fork and start with a crunchy juice crusted area moving into a cake like section. Now dig down into the fruit and juice that has mixed with the batter and butter underneath to find biscuit soaked with juice. If there is anything left, hide it in the vegetable bin. The supermarket had frozen peaches on sale and I knew I could find some great recipes on Zaar. I was a bit low on sugar so I used dark brown for the peach mixture. Fortunately, I had some leftover heavy cream I could mix with skim milk to make "milk". I used 2 pounds of defrosted frozen peaches and it was done after 45 minutes. DH said he would just try a little because he was "full" ate 1/4 of the dish. So now I had to ration the rest - dinner, breakfast, lunch! Good thing it's so easy to make.
