Strawberry Peach Cobbler
It’s hard to believe Memorial Day weekend is already here! Time has been flying so fast even though we are stuck in lockdown. MDW is usually the kick off to summer so I bring you this delicious summery dessert - Strawberry Peach Cobbler! I know we aren’t having cookouts or get together’s this year but you can still make this sweet treat to get your summer started!
I acquired this recipe from my good friend Cortney, back home in NC, it’s an old church recipe and it’s even typewritten. These recipes really are the best, aren’t they?
If you don’t much about me, one thing is that I was raised in the south so I love my southern fixin’s! Of course I had to add my own tweaks to the recipe because I can never follow one as is, lol. I used brown butter instead of margarine, and added cinnamon and vanilla to elevate the flavors. I also cut the amount of fruit in half, the original recipe calls for 2 quarts which is 8 cups so it’s definitely too much. You’ll see that even 4 cups are more than enough. This recipe is *extremely* easy. You can follow the one pictured above if you like or you can try my spin on it! Can’t wait for y’all to try this one, it’s soo good!
Strawberry Peach Cobbler
1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
1 cup self rising flour*
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1.5 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup milk
2 cups strawberries, halved
2 cups peaches, sliced
3 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp cornstarch
*If you don’t have self-rising flour, you can make it by mixing 1 cup all-purpose flour + 1.5 tsp baking powder + 1 tsp salt. This equals self-rising flour.
1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
2. In a mixing bowl, add flour, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and milk. Mix well then set aside.
3. In a light colored pan, over medium-high heat, add one stick of butter and melt. Once melted, the butter will start bubbling. Continue to let it bubble for 3-4 minutes, you will see it starting to brown. There will be little brown bits at the bottom of the pan and it will smell rich and nutty. Remove from heat.
4. Pour brown butter into a 9x13” baking dish. Then pour batter on top, do not mix.
5. In another bowl, add strawberries, peaches, brown sugar, and cornstarch. Mix well and place fruit on top of batter, do not mix. The fruit should sink into the batter.
6. Bake for one hour or until golden brown and the middle has set. Remove from oven and enjoy hot with a scoop vanilla ice cream, or even whipped cream!
