good as warm peach cobbler served with homemade vanilla ice cream!
Prep Time: 1 1/2 hours Serving Size: 6
- 3 cups peaches, sliced
- 1 1/4 cup sugar, divided into 3/4 and 1/2 cups
- 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
Heat oven to 350°. If using fresh peaches,
blanch them in boiling water for 30 seconds and then shock in ice water to
allow for easy removal of the skin. Slice and place in a bowl with 3/4 cup
of sugar. If using frozen sliced peaches, remove from the freezer and thaw.
Place in a bowl with 3/4 cup of sugar. Put the stick of butter in a deep 2
quart casserole and put in the oven until melted. Remove and set aside.
Combine 1/2 cup sugar, flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Stir
in milk and vanilla extract to combine into a batter. Pour the
batter over the melted butter. Pour peach and sugar mixture on top of the
batter. Bake for 1 hour.
Cobbler will rise to the top as it cooks.
