Peach Cobbler

Cobblers originated in the early British American colonies. English settlers were unable to make traditional suet puddings due to lack of suitable ingredients and cooking equipment. Not being a fan of suet puddings, this works for me.

Peach Cobbler

Serves 8

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
3 cups sliced peeled fresh or frozen peaches

Topping:
2 cups water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tbs butter
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
Ground cinnamon, optional
Vanilla ice cream

Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in milk just until combined; fold in peaches. Spread into a greased 8-in. square baking dish.

In a large saucepan, combine water, sugars, butter and nutmeg and cinnamon if desired. Bring to boil, stirring until sugars are dissolved. Pour over top.

Bake 40-50 minutes or until filling is bubbly and a toothpick inserted in topping comes out clean. Serve warm or cold with Vanilla ice cream.
