I know I’ve been pretty slack about posting lately. I’ve been busy. I’ve also been in a quiet mood. I’m very introverted, and it takes a lot of energy to communicate with the public. Apparently blogging falls under this umbrella because the thought of writing a post has made me want to nap instead. I’m going to try this whole ‘fake it until you make it’ thing because the ‘wait a little while to recharge your batteries’ thing didn’t work. So, *fingerscrossed* this helps! I feel bad that I don’t talk to people anymore.
I also wanted to force myself to update because I have all these yummy summer recipes just waiting to go up, and summer will be over this weekend! Oops! I used to be so good with writing posts as soon as I made them. What is wrong with me lately? At least I’ll have content to publish if I ever get in a cooking rut, right?
I’ll shut up about how I suck as a blogger now and get on with the post. Today I’m sharing a super easy recipe for peach cobbler. The origonal recipe, which I’ve been making for years, was way too sweet. This is the semi-desugared version. I know a lot of people hear ‘reduced sugar’ and run, but, trust me, this is still delicious. You won’t miss the super sweet syrup.
All the farm stands here in Jersey still have peaches available. Hopefully you can get some yummy ones where you’re at, too!
4 Peaches, Diced or Sliced
8 Tablespoons (1 Stick) Butter
1 Cup Sugar
1 1/2 Cups Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 Cups Milk
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F. Put the stick of butter in a baking dish and put in the oven until the butter melts.
Meanwhile, go ahead and dice/slice your peaches if you haven’t. You can peel them if you want, but peach skins do not bother me.
Combine the sugar, flour, baking powder, salt together. Slowly add milk, stirring well to prevent clumping.
Pour the flour mixture over the melted butter.. don’t stir it, just pour it. Then, scatter the peaches over top of the flour mixture. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Bake for about 30-45 minutes, or until the batter raises and is golden brown.
I served mine with ice cream this time, but it’s equally delicious with whipped cream or on it’s own.
