Peach Cobbler, Yes I Had to Have It After reading “From Scratch”

So the book “From Scratch, by Goodman” left me craving peach cobbler. I got online and searched for something easy. Luckily I have a peach tree in my back yard that is heavy with ripe peaches so the best part was already available. It was so easy but I managed to mess it up, maybe it was too easy. LOL I doubled it, and it is now spilling over the sides of the pan all over the oven. I may post a picture, may mind you. This is a humiliating mess up. I’m so used to doubling recipes that I didn’t consider the pan size.

I did add more lemon and less sugar. I like my fruit a bit tart, so it goes better with ice cream.

Finished product review: I loved it, the cobbler part was fluffy and crisp on top the peaches perfect. Make it I gave it a 9 out of 10

I used this one from-  My recipes site


1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar, divided
1 tablespoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 cup milk
4 cups fresh peach slices
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Ground cinnamon or nutmeg (optional)

Melt butter in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish.

Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt; add milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter over butter (do not stir).

Bring remaining 1 cup sugar, peach slices, and lemon juice to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly; pour over batter (do not stir). Sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.

Bake at 375° for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve cobbler warm or cool.
