This is as rustic as peach cobbler gets! I stumbled across this recipe when I was a teenager. As soon as I made the first one, it was followed by requests for more. The great things about this recipe are that it’s simple, uses only a few ingredients and it’s versatile. You can use any fruit you like, but my favorites are peach and apple. You can also choose to forgo the crust topping as it makes it own as it bakes. Enjoy!
2 cups of peaches (I used peaches from my freezer)
1 and 1/4 cups of sugar
1 cup of milk
1 cup of flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
Melt margarine in a baking dish. In a separate bowl mix sugar, flour, baking powder and milk then pour over the margarine. Do not stir! Pour fruit on top and spread evenly but do not stir. Sprinkle a little sugar on top. Bake a 350 degrees for about 50 minutes.
Optional Crust Topping:
1 cup of All Purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 to 3 tablespoons cold water
In a small bowl combine flour and salt. In a separate bowl combine vegetable oil and water; stir well. Pour oil mixture into flour mixture and stir with a fork. If mixture seems dry add a little more water. Shape dough into a ball, cover and chill until ready to use.
Roll dough out and cover cobbler. If you use a large baking dish, you may need to double the crust recipe. If you make a solid crust cut a few slits into it before baking so that it can vent. Sprinkle a little sugar on top for extra sparkle. Bake according to directions.
Tip: If you do apple, add your favorite seasonings like vanilla and cinnamon to the melted butter!
