- 6-8 fresh peaches, *peeled and sliced
- 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Juice from 1/2 lemon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pour melted butter into center of 9×13 baking dish (do not spread butter around pan). In a separate bowl, combine flour, 1 cup sugar, salt and baking powder. Slowly pour in milk and vanilla extract, stirring to combine. Pour batter over butter, but do not stir. Place brown sugar, peach slices and lemon juice in a saucepan over high heat. Stir frequently until sugar is completely melted and peaches have released their juices. Pour peaches over batter, but do not stir. Bake 40-45 minutes or until top of cobbler is golden. Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream. Makes 8-10 servings.
*To easily peel peaches, bring a pot of water to boil. Lightly cut an “x” on the bottom of each peach. Place in water, one at a time, for 30 seconds (no more). Remove with a spoon and peel at the “x.” The skin will come right off.
