Easy Peach Cobbler
Having already scratch made two other meals this morning and with the afternoon fast approaching, I was running short on time and, honestly, I needed something easy for dessert. My idea for this quickly turned to Peach Cobbler. I decided to go the traditional route and whipped up a batch of dough which I sweetened and dropped on top to form the crust.
- 2 cans (21oz) sliced peaches, drained
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ cup all purpose flour
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1½ tablespoons baking powder
- 3 tablespoons butter, unsalted
- 3 table spoons vegetable oil
- ¾ cup milk
- 2 eggs
- pinch of salt
- Preheat the oven to 400°F.
- In a bowl, combine the peaches, sugar, flour and cinnamon. Stir until combined and set aside.
- In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix well and then add the butter and combine with your fingers or a pastry cutter until it is crumbly. Next add the eggs, oil and milk and stir until just combined.
- Pour the peaches into the bottom of a baking dish and top with the dough by just taking small bits of the dough and then dropping it randomly on top of the fruit. This will rise and form a nice crust. If you like, now sprinkle the raw cobbler topping with about a tablespoon or so of sugar.
- Bake 35 minutes until the cobbler is golden brown and the peaches are bubbly. Cool slightly before serving. Top with ice cream or fresh whipped cream (both optional, of course).
