My grandmother used this recipe every summer when the peaches were ripe. She got the recipe from her church cookbook. You can use any almost any kind of fruit in the cobbler, it will still be good.
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Pour melted butter into an 8x8 pan.
- Whisk together the flour, 3/4 cup of sugar, baking powder and milk.
- Pour over melted butter.
- Cover with peach slices.
- Cover with 3/4 cup sugar (I know this will seem like a lot, but use it all.).
- Bake until batter rises to top and forms a nice brown crust, about 20 - 30 minutes.
I have yet to try it, because I brought it to a potluck (and had to have choc cheesecake), but I got rave reviews for this cobbler! What's best is that although I'm originally from Chicago and now live in Alberta, a "southern gent" from North Carolina told me this was the best peach cobbler he'd ever had! Woo-hoo! Thankfully there is a tiny bit left, so I know what I'm having for breakfast tomorrow! Oh, I doubled the recipe but oops, put it in a 9x13, which wasn't quite big enough; it all spilled over in my oven, but it's ok . . .the smell was just yummalicious. Took longer to bake too, this way--about 45 min.
Holy sugar Batman! This was very sweet. If I made this again, I would cut the sugar in half. I used home-canned peaches in the cobbler, and it took me double the time to bake it. I think it would have been great if it weren't so sweet. We may or may not try this again. Thanks Giggle Box!
I had to try another recipe from Elmolvsu's grandmother, and it's a winner as well. So easy and so tasty. Simplicity at its best.
