365.68: Summer Cobbler

Tonight I served leftover spaghetti to the three boys for dinner. Well, actually, I mixed up the noodles and sauce in a corningware dish before putting it in the fridge the other night, then covered it with cheese and stuck it in the oven tonight. And was now "spaghetti casserole!"

Anywho, after the boring dinner, I was in the mood to bake something! I had peaches that needed to be used up, but not quite enough for a cobbler. So I threw in some strawberries as well, and baked up a delicious cobbler, courtesy of Paula Deen and

It smelled so good, I had to keep peeking into the oven to look at it:

And the final product:

Here's the recipe I used:

Ingredients: 2 1/2 cups peeled, sliced peaches
1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
2 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup water
8 Tbsp butter (Yeah, that's right. what'd you expect from Paula Deen?)
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 cups milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the peaches and strawberries, 1 cup sugar, and water in a saucepan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Put the butter in a 3-quart baking dish and place in oven to melt.

Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup. Sprinkle top with ground cinnamon, if using. Batter will rise to top during baking. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes.

To serve, scoop onto a plate and serve with your choice of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.


  1. When I have leftover fruit, especially berries, we always make my great-grandmothers Cup-a-cup-a-cup Cobbler. :-) 1 cup milk, 1 cup self rising flour, 1 cup sugar, some vanilla and cinnamon. Melt a stick of butter in the bottom of an 8x8 dish. Pour in the fruit. Mix all the ingredients together and pour over the top. Bake at 400 until bubbly and crusty, about 45 minutes, give or take. It doesn't keep well, so you have to eat it all!!!

  2. GREAT recipe, lauren! thanks! i will definitely try that one next time, especially since its so easy to remember!

  3. You were our inspiration. We had Cam and six friends over for dinner and games tonight...and your luscious looking cobbler was baked and gobbled good...fresh peaches and blackberries. Lindsay saw me making it and said, "That's just like Courtney's!!!!" Yup! She follows your blog too! We love you! Mimi and Pop-Pop
