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 foodnetwork.com.
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.
