Had a craving for my Mother’s peach cobbler! Funny tho, my Mom only made peach cobbler on the holiday season. Although My Mom has passed, my vivid memories of her was watching her cook as a kid, than as a teen and in my college years, (helping in the cooking prep by that time).
I suppose I’m just reflecting my precious time that I had on this earth with her. However, my Momma’s food was always the thing I needed to feel blessed! Especially, when life brought me down. I’m always yearning for that feeling of home, of course I’ll probably never recapture the actual feeling. However, I’m damn sure gonna try. Because, that’s my momma’s food, it could put a smile on Scrooge’s face, (hence, the Christmas theme of the article!😂)
This recipe is not exactly like my Mom’s, and not that her ingredients was less than or more than. I’m a culinary enthusiast, so I’m always gonna mix and match flavors.
- 2 cans (29oz) peaches drain liquid, (about 4-5 cups)
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the batter:
- 6 Tablespoons butter
- 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- ground cinnamon to sprinkle on top
Cook time: 40 min at 350 degrees
How to make:
Place peaches (drained from can) in a sauce pot, and add the sugar, brown sugar, salt, vanilla extract, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Cook for 6 to 7 minutes, set aside to cool.
I used ramekins for my desert. Place a slice of butter in each ramekin. Melt butter in your preheated oven, let melt for couple minutes.
While butter is melting, mix your batter ingredients with a whisk. Once smooth , add to your ramekins evenly.
With a saucing spoon, layer your peaches on top of batter in the ramekins. Sprinkle cinnamon on top.
Place ramekins in preheated oven for 40 min., at 350-375 degrees.
Then enjoy! 😋
