Super easy Peach Cobbler

So as i have said before I married a country boy.  I am not originally a country girl, though I guess at this point I definitely have some country mixed in there with the cajun mama.  Ha ha!! Peach cobbler was never a dessert my mama or my grandmothers cooked often, if ever.  I don’t know why, it was just that way.  So I marry this bonafide country boy and he loves peach cobbler.  What’s a transplanted Cajun mama supposed to do?  Well, dang it, you google easy peach cobbler and take it from there.  A friend had taken me out to Ed Lester’s farm and we split a basket of fresh, ripe, juicy peaches.  They were peach perfection.  Big Daddy peeled those babies for me and sliced them up (that man was ready for that cobbler I tell you) and I set out with my recipe that I googled and hoped for the best.  Well…I got the best.  Sure, I stumbled head first into it by accident, but I found a good one!  Make sure you have some Bluebell Homemade Vanilla Ice cream to serve on top (or some brand…is there another brand? kidding).  Big Daddy was in heaven and I was a proud Cajun mama.  I am working towards earning my country girl cooking badge I think.  

Super Easy Peach Cobbler 

1/2 cup (1 stick ) unsalted butter

1 cup all purpose flour 

2 cups sugar, divided 

1 T. baking powder

a pinch of salt

1 cup milk (I use whole for my baking unless I state otherwise…buttermilk is always great to if you have it on hand)

4 cups fresh peach slices

1 T. lemon juice

ground cinnamon or nutmeg (I used both but it is optional)

Melt butter in a 13 X 9 inch baking dish

Combine flour, 1 cup of the sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Add milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.  Pour batter over the melted butter, but do not stir.

In a saucepan, bring remaining 1 cup of sugar, the peach slices, and lemon juice to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly.  Pour this mixture over batter and again do not stir.  Sprinkle with cinnamon and or nutmeg, if desired.

Bake at 375 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream.  YUM!!!Image
