Pat's Peach Cobbler
Had a really fun and somewhat embarrassing moment making this yummy cobbler that Pat gave us on her blog. Pat left a fabulous recipe and I decided to give it a try.
I had everything I needed and I got started right away. Made up the whole thing and stuck it in the oven. It started browning up really well, then, well, just stopped. The whole thing was soupy and doughy. So I emailed Pat, to see if the juices firmed up or something... well I figured it out ... my oven was turned off. It only baked for about 10 minutes. So, once I got the oven on, and it finished baking, all was good.
Peach Dessert-Easy Cobbler
12 or 14 peaches (these are clings)
1 stick unsalted butter (I used about 3 T)
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
Sprinkle of nutmeg (I used a little of fresh grated nutmeg)
3/4 cup milk (I used a bit less)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 (an important step, leave the oven on too, for even better baking!)
Peel, slice and sweeten peaches, to taste.
Assemble dry ingredients in large mixing bowl.
Add vanilla to milk and stir into dry ingredients until well blended.
Batter will be slightly lumpy.
Pour peaches into 9x13 baking dish and dot with butter.
Pour batter over peaches, bake in 350 oven, 35 to 40 minutes, until batter is golden.
When cool, sprinkle a small amount of sugar over top.
Option: A large can of peaches, in heavy syrup, can be substituted for fresh peaches. (and, frozen fresh peaches work well, too!)
Thank you Pat, for sharing this with the Steffes' family. Bob is really loving' it!
