When I go to the grocery store, and there is a sale on fruit, I get all warm and fuzzy on the inside. As fuzzy as a peach!
The recipe isn't like 2 ingredients easy, but it is really easy. I mean grab a stick of butter, melt it either in the same skillet that can go into the oven or melt some in the microwave for 1 minute.
Then throw in some sliced peaches. The recipe is measured below and is based on a from scratch approach, feel free to use fresh or frozen sliced peaches in this recipe! Mix up the dry ingredients that we usually have in our cabinets (flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, & salt).
If not, ask your neighbor for 1 cup of flour or sugar, whichever you are missing (or double the borrowed ingredient if you plan on making them a pie as well, lol then you should be able to borrow anything anytime!). Wet those dry ingredients with a cup of milk and stir, then pour that lovely batter evenly over the buttered peaches, DO NOT MIX and throw it in the oven.
If you could here me talk, sometimes I have a slight southern accent that comes out.
My excuse is that it comes from all the times I visited my family in Georgia. It's weird, lol!
When I used to waitress tables to put myself through college (and I still have tons of student debt!) I talked to my tables in this voice, and they asked me, "Are you from here?" or "Are you from down south?" and I couldn't get together a normal explanation. So, I would over exaggerate my family vacations to Georgia as an excuse for having a accent. When really, It's like my body feels that when giving hospitality it has to be associated to being a "Georgia Peach".
Anywho, my grandmother had a neighborhood garden with all sorts of different vegetables she sold for cheap. Part of that garden had some beautiful peach trees. I would come over to her house and there was always a fruit dessert of some kind. Lucky me, when the peach tree was ready to harvest, we took peaches home and made peach cobbler.
I know that I can find something to do with a bunch of fruits that are already ripe and ready to go. Even if my schedule is packed, I can throw them in my juicer and have juice. But thats not as exciting as throwing some butter, flour, and MORE sugar into the conversation.
Cobbler works with other fruits such as, blueberries and cherries also. The classic is with peaches. So I wanted to stick to a classic peach cobbler. You can experiment with anything, but sometimes you crave a classic that started the exploration in the first place. So, if you are in a classic mood, I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as i have for many years!
