Last summer at our local farmers’ market, the peaches smelled so good, they were irresistible. We each had our own plans for those peaches. Bo, of course, immediately thought, “Umm, peach cobbler.” I, on the other hand, thought, “I can’t wait to get those home and eat one — maybe two.”
I actually took them home and put them on the counter, thinking a few of them needed to ripen a bit more. I decided to eat them later in the day. Wouldn’t you know it, Bo had a peach cobbler made and in the oven before I even knew he had peeled the peaches. I have to say, it was delicious, even if I didn’t get to eat a raw peach. I remember thinking, “I’ll get more next week, and I might just hide some of them. Nah, probably not.”
Bo’s Easy Peach Cobbler
- 1/2 stick unsalted butter
- 1 cup flour (we use unbleached flour)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 cup milk (we use only skim milk)
- 3-1/2 cups fresh peaches, sliced; or 2 cans of sliced peaches
- Melt the butter in a baking dish or casserole dish.
- Make a thin batter of the milk, flour, sugar, and baking powder.
- Pour batter into baking dish.
- Add peaches on top of batter.
- As batter cooks, it will rise up through the peaches to make a golden brown crust.
- Bake at 350 F. for 40 minutes.
- Serve warm.
It was a fun morning at the farmers’ market; and, of course C.C. went, too. (She’s the one in the foreground with the leash going out of the picture.) Dogs are always welcome at our farmers’ markets. Just be sure to pick up after your pets.
