Peach Cobbler

By Unknown - 7:07 PM

Cobbler...Crisps...Crumbles...Sonker...called it whatever you fancy.
They are all simple variations of cobbler (which really is a variant of pie) - made with fresh seasonal fruits and berries.
Various fruit cobblers are quite popular in summer time, especially peach cobbler.
Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that peach season is at its peak in July and August.
But you can find fresh peaches as early as May and available until late September.

Chris said peach cobbler is my go to dessert -- which is not quite true but I can see how he could have come up with that conclusion. In the past month, I've made it couple times for a dinner party, a co-worker's birthday, and just because I craved sweets because it is so simple to whip up!

This is the easiest, prettiest cobbler you will ever make.
It only takes a few minutes to prep, bake for a bit, then pops out ready to satisfy your craving.
You can make it ahead of time, cover & set aside, pop it in the oven before dinner ends and whip it out at the last second to the delighted ooh's and ahh's of your guests.
Did I mention its aroma is astoundingly peachy?

To make one for dessert you'll need:
6-8 peaches *you can substitute any fresh fruits or berries you please
1 stick unsalted butter - melted
1 cup self-rise flour
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar + 1/4 cup for sprinkle
(buttered pie dish or ramekins)

Preheat oven 350°F.
Combine milk + flour + sugar.
Mix together well.
Add the melted butter + mix some more until everything is blended nicely.
Pour the batter mixture into a buttered pie dish. (Or you can pour into individual 8oz ramekins)
Then top it with peaches. Arrange as many peach slices as you please. The more the merrier! ;)
Finish it off with sprinkles of sugar on top.

Bake until golden.
Or you can just rely on your nose to decide when it's done.
Trust me, by the time the cobbler is baked, your home is filled with wondrous sweetness.

For a regular size cobbler - bake ~1hour* 
For the individual serving size - bake ~25mins* 
*keep in mind - each oven is slightly different - one might take longer to bake - so keep your eyes on the cobbler!

Now don't forget to reward yourself for all your hard work.

What are you waiting for?
Go on. Have a bite.
