Grandma's Peach Cobbler
This is the easiest (and some believe, most delicious) "from scratch" peach cobbler you'll ever make. Served alone or with cream, whipped cream or ice cream, it's an outstanding dessert.
Cobblers require ripe peaches of the highest quality. If you can't find really excellent fruit, but are desperate for peach cobbler, a satisfactory peach cobbler can be made with frozen peaches to which no sugar has been added. These are available year round at most any supermarket.
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Put the butter in a 9x13-inch Pyrex or other oven-proof baking dish and put the dish in the preheating oven. While the butter is melting, mix up the batter by combining the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and milk.
- When the butter is completely melted, remove the pan and pour the batter into the melted butter. Then, carefully spoon the peaches and juice evenly over the batter. Return dish to the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
- As the cobbler cooks, the batter will rise up and around the peaches.
- Makes 10 to 12 servings.
