I love peaches, but only fresh ones, not canned. I only buy organic (peaches are one of the fruits that are highest in pesticide residue, so I only eat organic ones) and let me tell you, they’re delicious! Not genetically modified and never doused in chemicals, they’re juicy and sweet. They make fabulous pies, but I’m not a crust fan – give me a cobbler or crisp and I’m a happy girl.
This peach cobbler is so fabulous. The only thing that will take you a few minutes is peeling and slicing the peaches. The rest is super easy. I use organic butter, flour, milk, and cinnamon to make it even better.
Easy Summer Peach Cobbler
- 4 cups fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
- ½ cup water
- 2 cups sugar
- 8 tbsp of butter
- 1 ½ cups self-rising flour
- 1 ½ cups milk
- 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a saucepan, combine peaches with 1 cup of sugar and water. Stir well. Bring mixture to a quick boil. Reduce heat and simmer gently for about 10 minutes. Set aside.
Put the butter into a baking dish (3-quart) and place in the oven to melt and coat the bottom of the pan.
In a separate bowl, mix 1 cup of sugar, flour and milk and stir until the mixture is smooth. Add the mixture to the melted butter. Then add peach slices and pour syrup on top. Sprinkle with a pinch of cinnamon and bake in the oven for about 40 minutes.
Serve with vanilla ice-cream or whipped cream
