If 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”!

- 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
- Preheat oven to 400 F.
- Melt butter, either in microwave or in oven, in 2-quart baking or casserole dish. It should cover the bottom evenly.
- Bring canned peaches, juice included, to a near boil.
- 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.
- Whisk for about 3-5 minutes, or use an electric mixer on low, until relatively smooth.
- Pour the mixture into the casserole dish.
- 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.
- Sprinkle the remaining 1/8 cup of sugar over the top of the buttery, battery, peachy mess.
- Cook in the oven for about 25 minutes, or until it tests done. Oven times may vary.
- Let cool for about 15 minutes, or for as long as you can stand it before you dig in.
- Enjoy with a nice cup of coffee and scoop of vanilla ice cream or a glass of milk.
