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.
