This year, for what ever reason, our peach trees decided to bless us with an abundant harvest. We only have three trees. Two of which are fairly small and then one of those was sevearly damaged in a spring storm… So that basicly left us with one good tree.
We watched the peaches for a few weeks hoping the squirrels, wasps and deer didn’t get to them before they were ready to be picked. We even tied Dixie up (our black lab) out by the tree and the garden to keep the pesky deer away.
Well, needless to say, we put up peaches for days. Actually Mr.Wonderful did most of the work because of my fractured arm…never fear though…my work comes later with the cooking of the peaches!
28 quart freezer bags to be exact.
What am I gonna do with all those peaches you ask? Man y’all ask a lot of questions 😉 the possibilities are endless…
Peach ice cream
Peach milk shakes
Peaches in my oatmeal
Peach fried pies
Oh, and my favorite…..peach cobbler.
Not just any peach cobbler though….it has to be my favorite…the Cupa Cupa Cupa cobbler! I’m not, and have never been, a big fan of the traditional crust on top and crust on bottom kind of cobbler. Thats not enough dough for this gal. Nope. I’m a like-a-lot-of-dough kind of gal. And if you’re a like-a-lot-of-dough kind of gal or guy….this recipe will surly get your motor goin’!
What’s the recipe you ask?
1 stick of salted butter, melted
1 cup self rising flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
3 cups of fresh peaches or one large can of canned peaches (drained). Other fruits, berries or even frozen mixed fruit may be substituted…I’ve used blackberries, huckleberries and blueberries. Some people even use a can of fruit cocktail.
In a medium size mixing bowl combine 1 cup of flour and 1 cup of sugar, then add 1 cup of milk and mix well.
Put a stick of butter in a 9×9 baking dish (or any medium size baking dish) and melt it in the microwave.
Pour batter mixture over the melted butter then spoon fruit into the dough (do not stir the fruit). Bake in preheated 350 dgreee oven for thirty minutes or until browned.
Note: when I use fresh or frozen fruit I cook mine on the stove with some sugar first.
Now let me be perfectly clear…this cobbler is absolute perfection all by itself but if a scoop if vanilla ice cream was to accidentally fall in your bowl…it would be perfection squared.
How do I know this you ask? Just a hunch 😉
Enjoy and thanks for reading! I love you more than cup cakes!
