On my blog post yesterday I said that the one thing you should always have in your pantry is Canned Peaches. I say this not because in case you get scared one day that someone is burglarizing your home and you need a weapon to grab but because one of the easiest desserts to make in a jif is Peach Cobbler.
I tend to find myself with a sweet tooth and usually nothing in my house to cook/eat when that craving hits. One because my mother’s boyfriend is on the border of diabetes and has to watch his sugar, and two because sometimes my week is so hectic I barely have time to take a breath let alone actually go food shopping.
After the first time I made peach cobbler I realized that maybe having a can of Peaches in my house wouldnt be a bad idea for those times when hunger hits for something sweet.
not to mention, Peach cobbler is one of the simplest dishes to make!
- 1 large can peaches (I use the store brand, quartered peaches) or you can use 4 cups of real peaches.
- 2 cups sugar, divided
- 1/2 cup water
- 8 tablespoons butter
- 1 1/2 cups self rising flour (it MUST be self rising, I use Aunt Jemima’s self rising flour)
- 1 1/2 cup milk
- Ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Put the butter in a baking dish (deep one–I happened to use ramekins for this recipe because I was making individual ones but you can use a large dish which is what I usually do.) and put it in oven to melt.
Combine the peaches, 1 cup sugar, and water in a saucepan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup. Sprinkle top with ground cinnamon, if using. Batter will rise to top during baking. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes.
you can serve the peach cobbler with whipped cream (store bought or home made like in my post ) or your favorite ice cream (vanilla works best though)
& then you can take a horrible picture of it the way I did (please dont judge me!)
