Cheap Eats :: Peach Cobbler
Another summer treat I love is the almighty peach! Fresh summer peaches rock my world, but canned peaches have their own appeal to me. When I was pregnant with Lucy, I bought cans of peaches to munch. I loved slurping those slimy slices so much it was ridiculous!
I saw a can of peaches on one of my last shopping trips, and I admit, I bought this can because I loved the label.
Lady Elberta Brand Yellow Freestone Sliced Peaches (in heavy syrup) *Shortcake Style*. I loved the retro look and thought, for $.20 more, I'll go for it. I bought them at Winco by the way, if you want to find some. They were fabulous.
I decided to make cobbler. I have made crisps, but never a cobbler...so I went a-huntin' on the internet. I came across this recipe.
Let's just say...we killed the whole thing in one night. Yum.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup + 2 tbsp sugar
1 stick of butter (cut in half and melted separately)
1 can (28 ounces) sliced peaches, undrained
(preheat to 350F)
1. Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl, pour in half a stick of melted butter and mix until butter is absorbed and the ingredients are crumbly.
2. Pour 1/3 of the mix onto the bottom of an 8x8 dish.
3. Add peaches and juice. There should be plenty of juice, but if it looks dry, add more water.
4. Top peaches with the remaining cobbler mix.
5. Pour the other half stick of melted butter over the top and then sprinkle with the 2 tbsp of sugar.
6. Bake 30-45 mins at 350F until brown and bubbly!
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream! Yum!!
