Omnomable Peach Cobbler

peachIf you’re like me, then sometimes you can’t wait for more than an hour for a sweet treat. (Sometimes even a minute seems too long!) Although chocolate is my first love, fruit cobbler is at least in the top ten.

Through a lot of trial and error, I’ve come up with an easy-to-remember, easy-to-do recipe for Peach Cobbler that usually takes less than an hour from start to finish. Why do I call it “Omnomable Peach Cobbler”? Well, because by the time I’ve got a bowl full of cobbler, all I can say is “omnomnom”!

Ingredients:

  • 32 oz canned peaches
  • ½ cup butter (1 stick)
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 1/8 cup sugar (separate 1/8 cup from the rest)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Melt butter, either in microwave or in oven, in 2-quart baking or casserole dish. It should cover the bottom evenly.
  3. Bring canned peaches, juice included, to a near boil.
  4. While waiting on the peaches, mix the sugar (excluding 1/8 cup of sugar), cake flour, milk, salt, baking powder, vanilla extract, nutmeg & cinnamon (and any other spices you want to add) together in a large bowl.
  5. Whisk for about 3-5 minutes, or use an electric mixer on low, until relatively smooth.
  6. Pour the mixture into the casserole dish.
  7. Spoon the peaches (leave most of the juice in the pot) into the casserole dish. The batter and butter will mix with the peaches. This is supposed to happen.
  8. Sprinkle the remaining 1/8 cup of sugar over the top of the buttery, battery, peachy mess.
  9. Cook in the oven for about 25 minutes, or until it tests done. Oven times may vary.
  10. Let cool for about 15 minutes, or for as long as you can stand it before you dig in.
  11. Enjoy with a nice cup of coffee and scoop of vanilla ice cream or a glass of milk.
