When I was a little girl, I wanted to learn to cook just like my Mom. We lived on a farm and had fresh peaches to spare when they were in season. The freezer always had peaches my Mom had put away for us. This was a quick dessert she often whipped up for us on the fly. It is insanely easy and can be memorized by an 8 year old. Every time I taste this cobbler, I remember the pride I felt as a little girl with her first family dish. And of course you can substitute any fruit, fresh or frozen, and I have even used canned.

How to Make Child's Play Peach Cobbler

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
  2. Melt butter in a 9x9 square glass baking dish or similar pan. Set aside.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl , combine flour, sugar, and milk, stirring until lump free. A whisk works best for this.
  4. Pour the batter into the the baking dish over the butter.
  5. Taste your peaches. If they are not very sweet or especially tart, sprinkle them with a little extra sugar. This step can be done up to a day in advance if needed and the result will be even better.
  6. Distribute the fruit, including juice over the batter.
  7. Bake in 350 degree oven for 30-40 min, until golden brown.
    The edges will be buttery and crispy and the center soft and fruity. Cool until warm and serve with vanilla ice cream, or whipped cream if desired.
  8. Over the years I have used this recipe for all kind of fruits and berries and never had a bad result. I have added a little cinnamon to the fruit from time to time. Vanilla adds an extra dimension to the batter, but I love it just the way I made it as a girl.
    If you use a fruit that is not very juicy, you might add a little more juice. For example, I add about 1/2 cup of apple juice if I use apples.
