This weekend I got the first of my Baking Bucket List done. I thought I was going to have to move some things around because cobbler sounded amazing, and I wanted to make it. Luckily I seemed to have already put that down for Week 1. Yay!
Finding a box of huge peaches at Costco for $4 on Thursday is sort of what started it. That and I just love cobbler, even blueberry, and I’m not the biggest fan of blueberries (muffins are also the exception). Now put fresh raspberries in front of me, or put me in front of a raspberry bush and it’s on. I digress, though. Peaches.. millions of peaches. Peaches for me.
Okay there is a chance I should NOT be writing a blog post because I seem to have the attention span of my 5 year old. So just humor me.
2 large peaches, peeled and sliced
1-1/2 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Dash ground nutmeg
3/4 cup milk
Combine peaches and 3/4 cup sugar, set aside.
Pour melted butter into an 8×8 baking dish. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and remaining sugar. Stir in milk just until combined. Pour over butter. Top with peach and sugar mixture.
Bake at 375° for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown.
The edges on mine looked fantastic. The center… gooey. *sigh* When it involves fruit and sugar I can assure you your 5 and 7 year old will not really care. I think next time I’ll use a little less batter, or maybe a larger pan so it’s more spread out. Something… But regardless it was tasty.
