PEACH COBBLER (MEME'S)







 


THE PEACHES AR SO RIPPED, BEAUTIFULLY COLORED, THE MARKET, AND MY MOTHER PEACH TREE IS FULL OF THEM. MY HOUSE IS FULL OF PEACHES, IN ALL KIND OF PLATES, POTS, ON THE TABLES,ON THE SHELVES. SO.... I DECIDED TO MAKE A PEACH COBBLER AND THE BEST RECIPE I HAVE IT IS FROM M. WILLIS, "meme's blackberry cobbler recipe" WHICH CAN BE USED FOR ANY FRUITS.

 

Ingredients

Serves 6 to 8
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 4 cups fresh  slice3d peaches
  • 1 cup sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Whipped cream, creme fraiche, or ice cream, for serving

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt butter in a large cast-iron skillet or ovenproof baking dish, in the oven, 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, slice the peaches.
  4. In another large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add 1 cup sugar, milk, and vanilla extract; mix until well combined. Remove skillet from oven and add melted butter to flour mixture; stir to combine. Pour mixture into skillet and pour blackberries and their juices into the center.
  5. Transfer skillet to oven and bake until top is golden brown and a cake tester inserted into the batter comes out clean, about 1 hour. Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature with whipped cream, creme fraiche, or ice cream. 

My cooking, step by step:


I start by mixing all the solid ingredients with liquid ones, add vanilla, add lemon zest...




Arrange 4 cups of sliced fresh peaches in the middle of it....




and bake for 1h at 375F. The vanilla, peaches and the cobbler aroma was wonderful, in the house. I was waiting WITH patience to take the cobbler out of oven!
The patience is rewarded, look how nice looking cobbler!




All I need is to add a scoop of ice cream to a warm steaming peach cobbler.

 LONG LIVE MEME!
