Summer is all about fresh fruit, especially peaches. Bake a yummy cobbler from scratch and use those juicy fruits in a family-pleasing way.
- Step 1: Bake the cobbler for 25 to 35 minutes.
- TIP: Lightly sprinkle cinnamon over the top of the peaches to avoid overpowering the fruity goodness.
- TIP: The batter will rise to the top of the cobbler during baking and should be a golden brown when completely cooked.
- Step 2: Remove the cobbler from the oven and allow to cool a bit before serving. Enjoy with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or all by itself.
- FACT: Cobbler, which found its way in American homes as an alternative to pies, was cooked in brick ovens and referred to as "slumps" or "grunts."
- Step 3: Top the cobbler mixture with the peaches, using a spoon. Gently pour the syrup from the saucepan over the peaches.
- TIP: Do not stir the sugar mixture into the butter.
- Step 4: Combine the peaches, 1 cup of sugar, and water in a saucepan. Stir gently and bring to a boil.
- Step 5: Cook the peach mixture for 10 minutes and then remove it from the heat.
- Step 6: Put the melted butter in a 3-quart baking dish.
- Step 7: Mix the remaining sugar, flour, and milk in a mixing bowl and pour the mixture over the melted butter.
- Step 8: Turn on the oven and preheat to 400 degrees.
