Jumping on the Cobbler Bandwagon

I’ve seen a lot of good looking and yummy sounding cobblers go around the blogosphere this summer but had yet to make one. That changed after I found some good looking IMG_0343peaches at the grocery store the other day and then saw Keeley’s apple cobbler post. 

I took Keeley at her word when she said her recipe could be  adapted to suit any fruit and used my peaches. The recipe below reflects my changes to her recipe.   I’d like to mention one thing about the cobbler,  during the course of baking the butter floated to the top.  I got a little freaked out thinking I goofed but after the cobbler baked for the full 45 minutes the butter had settled back.

Thanks, Keeley!  Your cobbler got a thumbs up from my gang! :)

Peach Cobbler, adapted from My Life on a Plate

3/4 stick of butter, melted (6 tablespoons, please use real butter)
3/4 cup self-rising flour (if you don't have any, make your own)
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cardamom (optional)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
3/4 cup milk
3 to 4, peaches peeled, cored, and sliced*

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Pour melted butter into the bottom of a 1 1/2 quart baking dish. 
Whisk together the flour, sugars, and spices.  Whisk in the milk.  Pour this batter over the melted butter.
Spread peaches evenly over the batter.  Do not stir.  Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.  Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream.

*Note:  Next time I would cut my fruit into thicker pieces.  I’d like my fruit to have more bite to them.  After baking for 45 minutes they were mushy, tasty but mushy.
