Favorite Dish: Mimi's Peach Cobbler
Peach Cobbler. There are few dishes that are more perfectly Southern. The savory crust and the sweet peaches make for a dessert that's sure to please everyone. We find this dish is especially equipped to feed large masses of people, whether it's a dinner party or a family holiday. Bonus points if any of those people aren't native Southerners and you can witness them experiencing peach cobbler for the first time.
This goes without saying, but do serve with vanilla ice cream. The warmth of the cobbler and the ice cream creates an ooey gooey miracle. We made this recipe before peaches were in season, but during the summer we recommend using fresh peaches. This recipe is incredibly easy but tastes just like Grandma made it (which, in our case, Grandma did actually make this for the blog). Adjustments to the recipe based on fresh or canned peaches is at the bottom. Enjoy!
Mimi's Peach Cobbler
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 and 1/4 cups light brown sugar
1 and 3/8 cup self-rising flour
1 and 3/8 cup milk
(2) 29 oz cans sliced peaches,drained
Like previously mentioned, we made this before fresh peach season but the canned peaches are still delicious. Preheat your oven to 375.
Mix the sugar and flower together until consistent
Slowly add milk to the sugar and flower mixture and stir until consistent
Pour the batter and peaches into the casserole dish of melted butter. Don't stir them in, just make sure it's evenly distributed. Yes, that's a lot of butter but it's delicious. What did you expect from a Southern dessert?
Your mixture of butter, batter, and peaches should look like this.
Generously sprinkle cinnamon over the top of your cobbler. Put it in the oven for 45 minutes. Kick your feet up, maybe read a book, or demand someone in your household go get fresh ice cream if you don't already have some.
The finished product is beautiful! Just look at that golden brown goodness. Let it sit for about 10 minutes after you take it out of the oven.
A peak of what the inside looks like...
Serve with ice cream and enjoy! It tastes even better when served in the company of friends and family.
Directions: Preheat oven to 375. Pour melted butter into 13x9 casserole dish. In a large bowl, mix brown sugar and flour together. Add milk, stirring just enough to combine. Pour batter over butter, but don't stir. Pour, but don't stir, drained peaches into batter, making sure to evenly distribute. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake for 45 minutes. *when fresh peaches are available, slice and combine with a cup of sugar, 1T of lemon juice and bring to a boil. You won't drain these peaches...all that deliciousness goes into the cobbler. Because you used sugar to cook the peaches, reduce the sugar for batter to 1 and 1/4 cup.
