peach cobbler perfection

Hi, y'all!  I'm so sorry to have neglected my lil' Wild Honey blog here...I have been cooking up a storm (and even taking pictures of lots of it), but haven't made time to blog it.  But I am back with peachy perfection in a cobbler.  And it couldn't be easier to make.

Get ready for mouth-watering, peach cobbler.  This recipe comes from my church cookbook, so you know it's quality.  (Credit given to Laura's Aunt Virginia.)

Pretty please may I have some peaches with sugar on top??
I halved her recipe to make an 8x8 cobbler.  I found these sweet peaches at a farmer's market.  You'll need 2 cups of peaches, chopped in bite-sized pieces.  I think I wound up using 4 peaches.  Add 1/2 cup sugar.  For good measure, I also put in a dash of vanilla.

Bring to a boil and remove from heat.

Preheat your oven to 375ºF/190ºC and put a half stick of butter (1/4 cup) in your dish in the oven until melted.

Now for the easy cobbler batter: stir together 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup of flour.  The recipe calls for self-rising flour, so I also added 1 t of baking powder to my regular flour.  Pour the mixture over the butter.  Do not mix.  Pour the peaches over that, again not mixing it.  I also sprinkled a bit of cinnamon on top.  Bake for about 25 minutes, until brown and bubbly.

 YUM.  It makes for a cakey-cobbler (as opposed to my Mother's delightful more pie-like cobbler, but variety's good, y'all).  Very simple and seasonal.

Happy summer!  What's your favorite thing to eat this time of year?

Bon appetit,


  1. That's the exact recipe I use! My mama called it "Magic Pie." Good idea for halving it - I'll do that sometime. I like it with cherries, too.

  2. How great! It is just so easy and tasty (especially with the vanilla bean ice cream I had on it last night). I have a massive blueberry bush in my backyard and so in a couple of weeks they'll find their way into one I'm sure.

  3. Any fresh or frozen fruit works, Lois does it with blueberries. A scoop of vanilla bean icecream works well too!
