Hi friends! I posted a peach cobbler photo on Instagram a few days ago and have been asked to share the recipe I use. I thought I'd share it here on my blog because it's so much easier to type a recipe on the computer than on my tiny little phone keyboard. :)
This recipe was passed down to me from my mother, passed down to her from her mother. It is so easy ladies! And you know the great part about this recipe? You can substitute any fruit of your choice in the place of the peaches! Imagine whipping up a blackberry cobbler, blueberry cobbler or raspberry cobbler using one simple base recipe!
I've included a printable recipe at the bottom of the post.
Ok, here's what you'll need to make the easy cobbler recipe:
* * *
*Old-Fashioned Peach Cobbler*
1 cup of flour (self-rising)
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of milk
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 stick of margarine or butter
1 large can of sliced peaches
9x9 square baking pan or cast iron skillet
* * *
Here's what you'll do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add stick of butter to skillet or pan, place in preheating oven to melt butter.
Mix the flour, sugar, milk and vanilla extract; set batter aside.
After butter is melted, pour peaches (and syrup) into the melted butter, spread evenly.
Pour batter over peaches.
Bake for 45-55 minutes (ovens may vary) or until the top is golden brown.
Tip: *You will most likely see the fruit bubbling around the edges during the baking process. I always put a cookie sheet on the lowest rack in my oven to catch any overflow.
