My general rule when it comes to dessert is: If it isn’t chocolate, don’t waste my time. But I recently tried this RIDICULOUSLY Easy Peach Cobbler, and it’s my current obsession!
Before I begin, I should tell you…I hate baking. I love to cook, a dash of this, a splash of that. I like making things my own. Something about the precision required in baking drives me bananas! Also, I’m not altogether sure where my measuring spoons are, and it irks me when a recipe calls for 1/4 teaspoon of something that is only sold in big containers. So, if I’m bringing you a baking recipe, you’d better believe it’s RIDICULOUSLY Easy!!
I adapted this recipe from one I saw on The Pioneer woman. She made hers with Blackberries. I had just received a big box of peaches from a CSA, and so I made Peach. Boy, am I glad I did!!
Here are the ingredients you need:
1 cup whole milk
1 cup self rising flour
1 cup sugar (plus more for sprinkling on top)
1/2 a stick of butter, melted
Not a single measuring spoon needed!!
How to make the cobbler:
Mix all the ingredients (except the peaches) together in a bowl.
If you are using fresh peaches, peel and cut up your peaches. I think canned peaches would be great in this recipe as well, but since I had A LOT of fresh ones, I used those. When peaches are ripe, they’re pretty easy to peel.
Just look at all that peachy deliciousness!!
Ok, guys…the hard part is over (to the extent there even WAS a hard part, it was peeling the peaches, lol)
Now, pour the batter into a buttered (or sprayed) baking dish. I originally used a 13×9 casserole dish, and it worked wonderfully. This time I used 2 pans because I was making one for us, and one for my parents. That also worked beautifully. Hooray for versatility!!
Once you have the batter in the pans, sprinkle those gorgeous peaches on top!
Finally, sprinkle more sugar on top. This will give it a beautiful carmelized crust. I didn’t measure how much I used, but probably half a cup total. I just went to town sprinkling!!
Your cobblers are ready to go in the oven now. Bake for one hour at 350 degrees.
TA-DAAAAAAA!!!!! Beautiful, delectable Peach cobbler! Serve it alone, or with some vanilla bean ice cream. (Confession time: I ate a piece with vanilla Greek yogurt one morning for “breakfast”) Your family will lose their minds over how good they are!!
I hope you love this RIDICULOUSLY Easy Peach Cobbler as much as I do! Enjoy!!
