I have to begin this recipe post with a little back story. Way back when my husband and I started dating (almost 8 years ago now!) he sent me a text that said “Do you like peaches?” I was not sure why he was asking the question. We were due to have our second date that evening, and I knew he was planning on cooking dinner for us. So I assumed it had something to do with that (or perhaps he was giving me some sort of early relationship ‘test’ “if this girl doesn’t like peaches, she’s outta here!”) Anyway, I don’t remember exactly how I responded, but I do like peaches so the result was the most delicious peach cobbler I have ever eaten. Not to mention the tasty Ribs and potato salad that preceded dessert. I was impressed, and a little intimidated. I had not yet cooked anything for him, and this was going to be a tough act to follow! Since that day, we have probably cooked over 20 of those peach cobblers. It is requested by friends and family every time we get together! AND….it is easy!
1 stick butter
1c. self rising flour (MUST be self rising)
1 large can peaches in heavy syrup. (or if you happen to have any peaches that you canned yourself, you can use those too 😉
Step 1. Preheat oven to 350. Place stick of butter in a glass 9X13 baking pan and place in the oven to melt the butter.
Step 2. Mix flour, sugar, and milk in a bowl.
Step 3. Pour mixture into glass baking pan on top of the melted butter. Do not mix, just pour.
Step 4. Dump the can of peaches, syrup and all, into the mixture. You may want to move the peaches around slightly to distribute them evenly, but you do not need to do any mixing.
*Sometimes dump the can of peaches into a small sauce pan and add cinnamon and let it come to a boil before adding to the mix, but this step is not necessary.
Step 5. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until edges are golden brown. Enjoy with homemade ice cream! (or the store bought stuff, you can’t go wrong with this cobbler.)
*We were so excited about the finished product that I forgot to take a picture! You’ll just have to make your own to see what the finished product looks like!
