Now is the time for peaches and if you live in an area like ours, they are plentiful. Eat them raw, baked, stewed, in jams, jellies or salsas…..any way you can possibly think of.
- 4 cups peaches, washed and peeled
- 2 cups berry sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 8 tbsp. butter
- 1 1/2 cups self rising flour
- 1 1/2 cups whole milk
- ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the peaches, 1 cup sugar and the water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes and then remove from heat.
Put the butter in a 3 quart baking dish and place in the oven to melt. Mix the remaining 1 cup sugar, flour and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour this over the melted butter. DO NOT STIR.
Spoon the fruit on top. Gently add the syrup. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top. This batter will rise during the 35-45 minute baking time.
In a pretty bowl, scoop in some of the cobbler, add vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. What on earth could be better than that?
OMG, my mouth is watering as I re-read this.
