The season for fresh peaches is long this year. I don’t know why peaches are still available (and at low prices!) over Labor Day weekend, but I’m sure not complaining! Instead, I’m making peach cobbler. This recipe was inspired by Toni Blake’s blackberry cobbler recipe, and is just delightful. Toni Blake is one of my favorite authors, and wrote her blackberry cobbler recipe into her heartwarming Destiny book series.
If you’ve made fruit cobblers before, you might find it strange that the fruit goes on TOP of the batter in this recipe. Don’t worry. The fruit will sink, and the batter will rise. and everything will end up in the right place!
1/2 cup butter
2 cups flour
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 3/4 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
4 fresh peaches, diced
Step 2) While butter is melting, stir together all remaining ingredients except peaches.
