Peach Cobbler

It’s a shame I had these peaches sitting on my kitchen counter this long, but I’m really not its biggest fan of the raw fruit. *I'm sure there is a sque of gasp heard all over globe right now, especially in the South J, but I don’t dislike it all the way, I just don’t like the plain fruit. It has to be made into something; pies, cobblers, ice cream etc.

Hands down I do love a good peach cobbler, the smell when the juices evaporate and marry into the sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. Watching it come together, I drool as the vanilla ice cream melt in slow motion into the warm, bubbliness of the perfectly cooked peaches, mmm mmm mmm. I know you want a spoon J

2 cups peeled, sliced peaches
1 cups sugar, divided
1/4 cup water
4 tablespoons butter
¾ cup  self-rising flour
¾ cups milk
a dash Nutmeg
Ground cinnamon, optional

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine the peaches, ½ cup sugar, and water in a saucepan and mix well.
  3. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  4. Put the butter in a 3-quart baking dish and place in oven to melt.
  5. Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping.
  6. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir.
  7. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup.
  8. Sprinkle top with ground cinnamon or nutmeg, if using any.
  9. Batter will rise to top during baking.
  10. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes.
To serve, scoop onto a plate and serve with your choice of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream
