Peach Cobbler

I got this recipe from a friend in highschool (about 20 years ago at this point!), and I don’t think a summer goes by that I don’t make it at least once.  It’s a nice spongy cake with sliced peaches and a sugary/butter topping.

Ingredients

Cake

4 Tbsp. butter

1/4 cup sugar

1 egg

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup milk

3 ripe peaches, peeled and sliced

Topping

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

4 tablespoons butter

1. Preheat oven to 350

2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg.

3. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt

4. Alternatively beat 1/2 of the flour mixture and milk into the creamed mixture; beat well.

5. Pour batter into a greased 9 inch skillet. Arrange the peaches on top of the batter and bake for 25 minutes.

6. While cobbler is baking, make the topping: combine sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and butter in a food processor or by hand with a spatula until crumbly.

7. After cobbler has baked for 25 minutes, pour topping over top and bake for an additional 8 minutes.
