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.

The young man or woman writing today has forgotten the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself which alone can make good writing because only that is worth writing about, worth the agony and the sweat. ------ William Faulkner, Nobel Prize Speech, Stockholm, 1950
