Peach Cobbler

After picking peaches on Sunday, I was just dying to try an old fashioned recipe for peach cobbler. I found this recipe to be a little strange, but I’m so glad I gave it a try. I’ll definitely be making it again.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups self rising flour
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups of sugar, divided
  • 4 cups of fresh peaches, peeled and sliced (I used 3 large peaches)
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk
  • Ground cinnamon (optional)

Instructions:

  • First, preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Mix your peaches, water, and one cup of sugar in a saucepan on the stove, bring to a boil, and simmer for 10 minutes then, remove from heatIMG_2312
  • Now for the odd part – place the stick of butter in the 9×13 baking dish and put in the oven until it’s meltedIMG_2314
  • Mix remaining cup of sugar, flour, and milk IMG_2313
  • Pour sugar/flour/milk mixture over the melted butter, and do not stir
  • Next, spoon your peaches on top, distributing evenly
  • Pour the syrup (sugar and water mixture cooked with the peaches in the saucepan) over the top
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon
  • Bake for 30-45 minutes and serve with ice cream or whipped cream

The batter rises to the top while it’s baking, and it should be a beautiful golden brown when you take it out of the oven.

Sweet as Southern Peaches + Sunday

This Sunday was the dreamiest. We made a little road trip to meet my great aunt and uncle at Fishers Peach Orchard near Greer, S.C. to pick the juiciest, most beautiful peaches. They were just hanging in big clusters and the light peeking through the trees in the orchard was breathtaking. I think we’ve found ourselves a new late-summer tradition!
