My sister-in-law turned me on to this cobbler which comes from Pioneer Woman. Ree used blackberries, but others fruits work just as well, and I found the peaches to be perfect. The batter is mixed first and poured into a shallow baking dish, and the sliced peaches are gently placed on top. As the cobbler bakes, the batter puffs up around the peaches to create a light breading that is gooey on the inside, crisp on top, and delicious through and through.
Easiest Peach Cobbler- serves 8
I am renaming this Easiest Peach Cobbler to distinguish it from other cobblers I make. I have not changed this recipe except to substitute peaches for blackberries, and I can claim no credit for it in any way. It is all Pioneer Woman's genius. I am posting it here so that I have a record of it for myself made with peaches. Check out Ree's original post for yourself, and enjoy!
1 stick butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup milk
2 cups peeled, sliced peaches
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a shallow baking dish (I used a 1 1/2 quart oval dish).
Melt the butter. Pour 1 cup of sugar and flour into a mixing bowl, whisking in milk. Mix well. Then, pour in melted butter and whisk it to combine.
Pour the batter into the buttered baking dish. Gently lay the peach slices on top of the batter, distributing evenly. Sprinkle ¼ cup sugar over the top.
Bake for 1 hour until golden brown on top. Serve plain or with ice cream or whipped cream on the side.
