Easy Peach Cobbler
Some people stay away from baking because of the messy clean up and/or the thought of mixing and blending too many ingredients together. If you are one of those people, I've got a really easy yet terrific peach cobbler recipe. This is one of my family favorites. Come summer when peaches are in season and sweet, I make it every week and we never get sick of it. It's that good! It also goes great with ice cream.
1 stick unsalted butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1½ teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup whole milk
3 medium peaches
Preheat the oven to 350ºF, with a rack in the middle.
Place the butter in a 3-quart baking dish and place it in the oven for 5 minutes, or until melted. Remove the dish from the oven, tilting the dish to evenly coat the bottom with the butter.
Whisk together the flour, 3/4 cup of the sugar, the baking powder, and salt. Whisk in the milk. Pour the batter evenly over the butter in the baking dish. Do not stir.
Cut the peaches into wedges and place them in the batter. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup sugar over the top of the peaches. Bake the cobbler until it is set and golden on top, 35-40 minutes. Cool slightly on a rack.
Serve the cobbler warm or at room temperature.
