Fall is officially here, but a couple weeks ago at the Housetrends office, our Senior Advertising Designer Gina made us some delicious peach cobbler.
Gina said while the cobbler was baking, her whole home smelled so good, you’d want to eat the walls.
Our taste testers thought it was a deliciously simple dessert that reminded them of old-fashioned country cooking, making it the perfect dessert for the end of summer and beginning of fall.
RECIPE: End-of-summer Peach Cobbler (adapted from: Majic 102.1)
• 1/2 stick of butter
• 1 can (28 oz) of peaches. Gina used 2 125 oz cans. You can also use fresh, about 8-10 peaches boiled and peeled.
• 2 1/2 cups of sugar, divided
• 1 1/4 cup of water
• 1 heaping tablespoon of cornstarch
• 1 1/2 cups of self-rising flour
• 2 teaspoon vanilla
• Milk, add until the consistency of pancake batter
• 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
• Additional sugar and cinnamon to garnish
• Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
• Melt 1/2 stick butter in 13×9 metal baking pan.
• In heavy saucepan, combine peaches (undrained), 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil.
• In a small bowl, combine 3/4 cup water and 1 heaping tablespoon cornstarch and add to peach mixture. Return to boil.
• In a mixing bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups sugar, 1-1/2 cups self-rising flour, 2 teaspoons vanilla and enough milk to make a thin batter. (a little thinner than a pancake batter).
• Pour hot peaches into pan with melted butter, and pour batter all over peach mixture.
• Top with cinnamon/sugar mixture, (1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon) and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
• Serve with ice cream or gelato and allow it to melt a little (or a lot) with the warm cobbler.
