Ok, this is really from the 1973 McCall's recipe cards, but it's the recipe my mom always made and I identify it as hers. But, whatever you want to call it, it's fabulous on a cool winter day fresh from the oven and served with melting vanilla ice cream.
- 2 (14 ounce) canssliced peaches, drained (reserve 1/4 cup syrup) or 5 cups peaches, sliced and peeled (about 3 lb)
- 1⁄4 cup water or 1⁄4 cup syrup, reserved from canned peaches
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄4 teaspoon almond extract
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons margarine or 2 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour (unsifted)
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons margarine or 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- Make filling: in medium bowl, combine peaches, all filling ingredients except butter. Turn into an 8 in x 8 in dish. Dot with butter.
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Make batter: in medium bowl, combine all batter ingredients and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Drop in 9 portions over filling, spacing evenly (batter will spread during baking.).
- Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until peaches are tender and crust is golden.
- Serve warm with cream or vanilla ice cream.
This is a lovely cobbler Windlass. My dh was in the flavor zone. I made this for him and he was thrilled. Told me it was just like his mom use to make. The cake topping was soft and tender and the peaches were juicy, fresh tasting, full of flavor and slightly sweet. Into my keeper box this goes. Thanks so much for sharing...Made for Fall Pac/12
This is ABSOLUTELY GREAT COMFORT FOOD, & the cobbler is so easy to prepare! The only problem is that it disappears too quickly! I served mine with some frozen vanilla yogurt along with small amount of homemade peach topping AND a little drizzle of homemade fudge topping! Thanks for posting a keeper of a recipe!
