Sweet and RICH!

I remember as a kid growing up that one of my all time favorite desserts was my Mama's peach cobbler! There was the mixture of sweet from the peaches and salty from the butter in the recipe. This rich combination of flavors was baked in a tender and somewhat chewy crust. What a treat and delicious dessert it is. I have made a couple of changes to this recipe to suit my family's taste but I still sometimes make it just like Mama still makes it. I enjoy the cobbler her way and mine. It is very delicious served warm with vanilla ice cream or at room temperature. Let's get started!
My Homemade Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler
- 1 large can peaches in heavy syrup
- 1 stick butter or margarine
- 1 cup all purpose four
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 tsp allspice or cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the stick of butter in a 9" x 13" glass baking dish and place in oven to melt. Meanwhile mix the flour, sugar and baking powder in a large bowl. Pour in the milk and mix well. Remove the baking dish from oven and swirl around the butter to coat the bottom and sides. Carefully pour the batter into the baking dish. Lay the peaches over the dough with a fork (reserving heavy syrup). Add the allspice or cinnamon to the syrup and mix well. Pour the syrup misture over the peaches and place the dish in the oven. Bake 40 to 50 minutes until the crust browns. Remove from oven and serve hot with vanilla ice cream. Can also be served room temperature or cold.
My Mama made this recipe by omitting the baking powder and allspice or cinnamon, This makes the crust a little chewier (which is delicious by the way). As I said I like Mama's version and mine. I hope you will try this recipe with your family and friends and remember to have fun when cooking and entertaining!
