Before you read this, please understand I do not bake. Actually, it’s usually dangerous whenever I do, mainly because I do not read directions (on anything). And with baking….that’s a HUGE problem.
Last night, because of the cold damp weather, I really wanted my granny’s peach cobbler. YUM. Since most cooking enthusiasts make it with their eyes closed, I thought I could make it with my eyes wide open.
We hopped in the car, went to our new local grocery store, and within an hour of this idea I was baking. Apron and all. :)
The recipe, from start to finish (washing dishes included) should take roughly 35 minutes. For a challenged baker such as myself, it took about 2.5 hours to finally master the cobbler.
After the first mistake, I had to call my granny. We talked through the recipe twice, and I learned the difference between tbs and tsp…HUGE difference apparently :D.
I won’t bore you with many more details, but you do need to know I made the first batch with 3/4 cups of margarine instead of 3/4 of a stick… Second mistake is that I made the cobbler with 1/4 tbs baking powder instead of 1 tsp…this mistake was still edible though…haha
Enjoy the photos. And if you want to try this simple (and DELICIOUS) recipe, it’s included down below.
Below: Top photo, this is my happy smile before I realized too much margarine!!
Below: The second series of photos are the obvious lack of baking powder! Kinda flat, tasted more like chewy sugar peach candy.
Above: The final finished delicious product!!! YAYYYYYYYY.
I don’t like sweet things really, but I do love this because it’s mostly crust and dough and hardly any of that peachy goo. :)
Granny’s Quick Cobbler:
3/4 stick of margarine
1 C sugar
2/3 C flour
1 can peaches (heavy syrup)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 C milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1. Melt 3/4 of a stick of margarine into a 9x9in or 10x10in baking dish, and set aside.
2. Set oven to 350 degrees.
3. In a separate container, mix everything else, except the peaches, until well mixed.
4. Pour batter into cooled margarine.
5. Pour/place peaches into batter and margarine mixture. Then pour on top about 1/2 of
the syrup from the peach can.
6. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of cinnamon over top of dish.
7. Cook uncovered at 350 until crust is brown. (about 20 minutes)
And enjoy! Brad ate the whole thing already :). Make sure to combine it with vanilla ice cream! Makes all the difference. Hot, cold, warm, soft textures!
