I wrote the title of this post while channeling Paula Deen! I love the way she says, “Hey, Ya’ll.” I can hear it as I write this.
I am a Southern girl through and through. I have lived all over the United States and overseas also, but the South has never left my blood.
I love all of the foods from the south: cream gravy, chicken fried chicken, fried okra (or okre if you are southerner), grits and of course cobbler.
Today, I will be sharing one of Paula Deen’s recipes for Peach Cobbler. This cobbler is the good old fashioned kind of cobbler your Grandma made. Get your butter out and get ready to bake!
Recipe adapted from Paula Deen
4 cups peeled, sliced peaches
2 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup water
8 Tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 cups milk
Ground cinnamon, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Combine the peaches, 1 cup sugar, and water in a saucepan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
Put the butter in a 3 quart baking dish and place in over to melt.
Mix remaining 1 cup of sugar and flour. Add milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do Not Stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup. Sprinkle top with ground cinnamon, if using. Batter will rise to top during baking.
Bake 30 to 45 minutes.
To serve, scoop onto a place and service with your cnhoice of whipped cream or ice cream
