Peach Cobbler to welcome Spring
I see the daffodils and jonquils showing their beautiful faces these days. And, if you are really a Southern Lit fan, I don’t think you can hear or see the word “jonquils” without thinking of Amanda Wingfield in Tennessee Williams’ “The Glass Menagerie” … scarlet fever and jonquils …
Anyway, on with the cobbler!
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 stick butter
3/4 cup milk (I use whole)
1 large can sliced peaches (or 1 quart canned peaches) – DO NOT DRAIN
1 tsp cinnamon
3 T. sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Melt butter in 2 quart casserole dish in oven.
Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, and baking powder in mixing bowl. Add milk. Stir until blended.
Pour batter into melted butter.
Dribble juice from peaches into batter mixture. Add peaches on top.
Sprinkle top of peaches with cinnamon and 3 T. sugar.
Bake for 30-40 minutes at 375 degrees. Check at 25 minutes – don’t overcook!
Now, if you really want to do it right, add homemade vanilla ice cream and serve.photo credit: jaimekop via photopin cc
You have made me hungry AND inspired me to read a little Tennessee Williams! Combining a classic Southern dish with a classic Southern playwrite – well done!
You’ve totally put me in the mood for this!
