I'm a dessert girl all the way. I've got a serious sweet tooth (it's a problem, really). I could live off pastries, pies, and cakes...
If only I still had the metabolism of a 16-year-old cheerleader. But I digress.
Peach cobbler is a staple dessert of the South, especially where I'm from in Georgia. So naturally, I grew up eating it at nearly every holiday and most covered-dish church functions.
Not until later in life (when I asked my mama for the recipe after discovering that my husband loved her version), did I realize how crazy easy it is to make.
Sure, there are some complex, bakery-style recipes out there in the world of cobblers, but this one is just as delicious - and so simple.
(One thing you'll come to learn about me through this blog is that I'm no chef. I'm just a busy mama trying to feed her family. That said, the recipes you'll find here are ones I've tried myself, which means any kitchen clutz like me can make them.)
Whether you're getting ready for a summer family reunion or you just want to have something in your arsenal for when the holidays roll around, my mama's peach cobbler recipe is perfect.
1 large can sliced peaches in heavy syrup
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1 stick (approx. 1/4 cup) butter
Drop butter into standard-sized casserole dish of your choice. (I use a round 9", 2 qt. one; it seems to work well.)
Place casserole dish in oven and preheat to 400 degrees. This allows the butter to melt easily while the oven preheats.
Mix together flour, milk, sugar, and peaches (with syrup).
Pour mixture into casserole dish with butter. Do not stir.
Bake for approximately 45 minutes.
And there ya have it! Delicious peach cobbler with very little effort.
What's your go-to simple dessert? I'd love to read about it in the comments!
