As we were enjoying dessert, I tried to explain to these Montana natives the compulsion of a southern woman to bring food in times of a birth or a funeral. If you are southern, you know exactly what I mean. Needless to say, this peach cobbler recipe was a huge hit to the new mom and dad.
I originally got this recipe from my aunt, Ruthie-Jo. Visit her website at Boogertown Gap. Instead of making the crust from scratch, the secret ingredient is boxed cake mix. It's now our favorite, go-to, easy summer time dessert.
So, here's what you'll need for the Semi-Homemade Peach Cobbler:
Yellow cake mix
Preheat oven to 350.
Peel and slice your peaches. Layer them in the bottom of a greased baking dish. I used an 8x8 glass pan (you can go as big or a small as you like).
Mix your yellow cake mix with a few sprinkles each of cinnamon and nutmeg. This is really a cook-by-feel recipe, so add as much or as little as you like. Sprinkle the mixture on top of the pieces.
(I used about half of the dry ingredients for an 8x8 pan because I was being frugal so I could make 2 cobblers. Use the whole box if you like a really thick crust. Yum!)
Melt a couple of tablespoons of butter. Drizzle on top of the cake mixture and peaches. You want to use enough butter to get most of the dry ingredients moist, but not soaked.
Finally, bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. Let cool and dig in!!!
This recipe is wonderful when paired with Breyers Natural Vanilla ice cream. Happy Summer!
