So most of August peaches escaped my radar. Of course, I am a photographer – mom – wife… first. But WHAT WAS I THINKING? This is one of my favorite fruits and in a month when we are suppose to be celebrating the mighty “Peach” it almost slipped by me. THANK GOODNESS, I caught a post on facebook letting me know it was national peach month. So, this morning I decided I needed to make some fresh peach cobbler! So here you go:
- FRESH PEACH COBBLER
- 1/2 cup salted butter
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups sugar (divide into 3/4 cup each)
- 1 tbs. baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup milk
- 4 Large fresh yellow peaches (or 5 if you’re like me and LOVE peaches)
- 2 tbs. fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp lemon zest
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.
Melt butter in an 8×8 baking pan.
Combine flower, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Add one cup of milk and mix until dry ingredients are moist. Don’t stir – pour batter over the melted butter.
Heat remaining sugar, fresh peaches, lemon juice, lemon zest, and cinnamon on medium heat until sugar has dissolved. Pour peach mixture over batter AND DON’T MIX. THE CRUST WILL FORM OVER THE PEACHES WHEN BAKING. I sprinkle the nutmeg over the top before putting into the oven!
Bake the cobbler for about 40-45 minutes. Serve with either vanilla ice-cream or for a lighter version use frozen whipped cream.
Hope you enjoy!!! It doesn’t last long -
