Sweeten the day with a southern peach cobbler

Sunday, March 31, 2024

Although many desserts make for a sweet ending to delicious meals, there’s something so inviting about a moist and tender cobbler to add to that yum factor. Cobbler consists of a fruit filling covered in a biscuit batter of sorts. When baked, the ingredients blend together to form a spoonable treat that is tender but with the right amount of bite.

Peach Cobbler

Servings: 9 5 peaches, peeled, cored and sliced (about 4 cups) 3⁄4 cup granulated sugar 1⁄4 teaspoon salt

For the batter:

6 tablespoons butter 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 cup granulated sugar 2 teaspoons baking powder 1⁄4 teaspoon salt 3⁄4 cup milk Ground cinnamon

1. Add the sliced peaches, sugar and salt to a saucepan and stir to combine. If using canned peaches, skip steps 1 and 2 and follow the directions starting at step 3.

2. Cook on medium heat for just a few minutes, until the sugar is dissolved and helps to bring out juices from the peaches. Remove from heat and set aside.

3. Preheat oven to 350 F. Slice butter into pieces and add to a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Place the pan in the oven while it preheats, to allow the butter to melt. Once melted, remove the pan from the oven.

4. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the milk, just until combined. Pour the mixture into the pan, over the melted butter and smooth it into an even layer.

5. Spoon the peaches and juice (or canned peaches, if using) over the batter. Sprinkle cinnamon generously over the top.

6. Bake at 350 F for about 38 to 40 minutes. Serve warm, with a scoop of ice cream, if desired.
