This peach cobbler has long been a popular way to make a cobbler quickly. This version is made with canned sliced peaches, and it's perfect for when you don't have time to peel and pit several peaches. Or when peaches aren't in season.
The batter calls for self-rising flour, but if you don't have it you may substitute with 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of table salt.
This is an excellent dessert to make on a busy day, and it's a popular cobbler in the South. Take it along to a summer cookout or potluck!
- 1 stick (4 ounces) butter
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 cup milk (low-fat is fine)
- 1 large can (29 ounces) sliced peaches in heavy syrup
- Heat the oven to 350 F.
- Put the butter in a 9-by-13-by-2-inch baking pan or a 2 1/2- to 3-quart baking dish and place it in the oven until the butter has melted.
- Meanwhile, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl and stir to blend. Stir in the milk until well blended.
- Take the pan out of the oven and pour the batter over the butter.
- Spoon the peaches with syrup evenly over the batter.
- Bake the peach cobbler for 45 to 55 minutes, until the topping is golden brown around the edges and lightly browned in the center.
