Monday's Meal

When I was growing up, my mom would always cook a big Sunday dinner and the best part of those dinners was the desserts. I remember fondly that she would often make a cobbler. I remember thinking something so delicious must be hard to make, but is not. So, I thought for old times sake I'd share a peach cobbler recipe. You can substitute whatever fruit you like as the recipe lends itself to an array of fruit, but for me peach will always be my favorite. Try it topped with some fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream and then tell me if you don't think you've died and gone to heaven.

Peach Cobbler

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk
1 stick of butter (1/2 cup), melted
1 (29 ounce) can sliced canned peaches, undrained
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Grease and lightly flour a 9X13 inch baking pan and set aside.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine flour, sugars, baking powder, salt and vanilla in a bowl. Pour milk into dry ingredients and then stir in melted butter. Mix thoroughly.
Pour mixture into a 9x13 inch baking pan. Arrange peaches on top and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.

Thanks for this recipe! I've starred it. I wonder if I can find canned peaches in juice and not syrup? In any case, peaches will be back in season soon! I love a good cobbler.
