Ever found an empty pan of something in your fridge? I did! I found this recipe in a book. It was rather plain so I added my own tasteful touches and served it to my family. They loved every bite and it was gone in just a few hours. If fresh peaches are out of season then use the best frozen peaches you can but cut back on the sugar.
- 1⁄2 cup butter (not margarine)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour (or cake flour)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons nutmeg
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon clove (or allspice)
- 1 cup milk
- 3 cups peaches, fresh, peeled and sliced about 1/4-inch thick (I used 4)
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Coat a 13 X 9 inch baking dish with non stick spray.
- Put butter in pan and put in oven to melt.
- Meanwhile, In a mixing bowl, blend dry ingredients EXCEPT BROWN SUGAR together.
- Add milk and stir well.
- Using oven mitts, remove the baking dish from the oven if butter is melted.
- Pour batter into dish and even out.
- Spoon peaches wiwth some juice (if any) evenly over the batter.
- Bake at 350 for 30 minutes then check for doneness.
- (Mine baked 40 minutes, sister's baked 30).
- Cobbler is done when batter rises and browns on top and firm in center.
- Sprinkle brown sugar over the top.
- Cover with foil (or other top) immediately so that sugar can warm up and stick to the cobbler.
