Sometimes you just need a warm, comforting, homemade dessert to make things all better, and this week, with the freezing weather sweeping the entire country I think we can all use a little warming up. My Mama's Southern Peach Cobbler hit the spot! This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dollar General for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
This recipe is one my Mama has been using for my entire life. It's a favorite for our family and even better, it's really easy to put together with staple ingredients that are easy to find... and we got them all at Dollar General!
Living out in the country like we do - my husband is always stopping by Dollar General on his way home from work and it's great that he can easily pick up most anything I need for all of my baking adventures - and we save money!
I was able to get every single ingredient in our local store and almost all of them were Clover Valley brand. Being a mommy to 6 kids, I have to stretch our grocery budget as far as I possibly can and Clover Valley baking products work just as well as other brand names, but don't cost us nearly as much!
Anywho - let me tell you about making this recipe - it's super easy! It only takes one bowl and one dish - and you don't even have to pull out a mixer to do it! I start by buttering my baking dish, then pouring in two big drained cans of peach slices (in light syrup)... but save some of that syrup - you'll need it!
Once you have all the peaches in the bottom of your dish, whisk together the rest of the ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. The batter will probably be a little lumpy, but that's okay! It works out just fine that way!
Pour the (lumpy) batter over the peaches and don't even bother to stir. The peaches will rise to the top and as it bakes you'll get the most beautiful golden crust! Bake at 375°F for 35-45 minutes or until the cobbler is set and the top is golden brown. Now sadly - you can't eat it right away. Let it cool for at least 20 minutes and it will fully set up and be scoopable. Is that a word?
This is me letting it cool. It was torture, I tell ya. After it cools, you must and I repeat must serve it with vanilla ice cream. Just take my word for it, okay?
You wanna know the best part about being a dessert blogger? Every time I had to stage a new bowl of peach cobbler with ice cream, I had to eat the previous bowl so it wouldn't waste. Now my husband pointed out that I could've let him or the kids eat a bowl or two, but why? I think as the official food blogger - that is solely my job! 😉 Alright - are you ready to try some?
Here's the recipe:
Southern Peach Cobbler
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 65-75 minutes
- 2 (29 oz) cans Clover Valley Peach Slices in Light syrup, reserve ½ cup light syrup
- 1 cup Clover Valley self-rising flour
- 1 cup Clover Valley sugar
- 1 stick Clover Valley salted butter, melted
- 1 cup milk (2% or whole)
- ½ cup light syrup from the canned peaches
- 2 tsp Clover Valley Pure Vanilla Extract
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Drain the peaches (reserving half a cup of juice) and pour them into a buttered 3 quart casserole dish. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, melted butter, milk, peach syrup and vanilla extract. When it's fully whisked together it will still have small lumps - that's okay! Pour the batter over the peaches. Bake at 375°F for 35-45 minutes or until golden brown on top. Allow to cool for at least 20 minutes before serving. It's optional, but I highly recommend adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!
