In the Kitchen...

The Mister traveled to the farm market yesterday to find some corn for him and peaches for me. I sent a note along to be sure he picked out the freestone peaches. They did have some, but very small so he brought a dozen home. On my list I had the Loring variety as my preference. Alas, no Lorings - yet - maybe in a week or two. They are huge and much more tasty than the smaller ones, but right now I'll use what we can get. IF I get Lorings, I'll probably dehydrate most of them for future projects. 

This is a VERY sweet dish, but I don't cut back on the sugar. We like sweet. 

Easy Peach Cobbler


1/2 cup unsalted butter

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 cups sugar, divided

1 tablespoon baking powder

Pinch of salt

1 cup milk

4 cups fresh peach slices

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Ground cinnamon or nutmeg (optional)


1. Melt butter in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish.

2. Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt; add milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter over butter (do not stir).

3. Bring remaining 1 cup sugar, peach slices, and lemon juice to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly; pour over batter (do not stir).

4. Sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.

5. Bake at 375° for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve cobbler warm or cool.


  1. Oh that looks so tasty. My sister and her husband used to drive to Michigan to pick peaches to bring on and can. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  2. Thanks for the recipe. It looks so good.

  3. I am not one for cooked peaches. Fresh or frozen (with no sugar).

    1. I've tried 5 times on my phone, and three times on my laptop and still unable to leave a comment today on your family's talents [great post by the way, and loved the Ariel costume].
