Summer is here and it looks like it’s going to be a busy one for us! Along with various summer events and activities, we are going to spend the summer swimming, creating and reading. My kids will be participating in the summer reading program at our local library which looks like it will be a lot of fun!
Today, after being out and about with the kids, I decided to make a dessert that doesn’t require a lot of effort: Peach Cobbler.
This recipe is neat because you spread the batter in the pan then pour the peach mixture on top…the batter rises to cover the peaches and gets a sugary crust on the top.
You will need:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk
2 cans peaches in syrup
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla
sugar to sprinkle on top
Cream butter and sugar
Add flour mixture and milk to creamed butter and sugar, alternating them
Spread batter in greased pan
Mix peaches with syrup, vanilla, and cinnamon together
Pour on top of batter
Sprinkle lightly with sugar. <Edited> Sorry everyone…I forgot a very important part: Baking time! I used a 9 x 11 casserole dish and baked at 375 degrees. Mine took about an hour to bake, but you may want to check it after 45 minutes. When the center is no longer doughy and it doesn’t ‘give’ a whole lot when you touch the top, it should be done.
It is especially yummy with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!
