Summer Peaches are here!
It is time for peaches here in Ohio so I thougt I would share my most favorite, easiest recipe ever for cobbler. I make it with peaches but you can substitute any fruit. Enjoy!
½ stick butter (4 tablespoons)
1 cup flour
1½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt.
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 cup milk
3 bags (1 pound each) frozen peaches (or 6 cups fresh sliced peaches, peeled and packed firmly, or 6 cups home-frozen peaches, defrosted)
½ gallon premium vanilla ice cream for serving, optional
Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the butter into four pieces and place in a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish
In a medium bowl (2-quart or larger), mix the flour, sugar, egg and milk. Carefully remove the baking dish from the oven, and pour the batter over the melted butter. Do not stir. Arrange the fruit evenly on top of the batter. (The batter will rise to form a crust in and around the peaches as it bakes.)
Bake, uncovered, for 1 hour or until the crust browns. Remove from the oven and let the cobbler rest 10 minutes before serving topped with ice cream, if desired.
Serves eight to 10.
