Easy Peach Cobbler - The First Recipe My Mother Ever Taught Me!

There are recipes that remind us of home, of growing up and happy childhood memories. This is one of those for me. It's such a simple recipe and it's one of the first that I remember making with my mom.

It also carries some memories of college. My last year at UVA, I was a head resident and had my own apartment. It was probably the only time in my life that I had my own place and I loved the freedom (and the cleanliness!!). Anyway, my husband (boyfriend back then) would often come visit and we would have people over for dinner. One night, I made this recipe but put it in a dish that was too small and it took FOREVER to bake! To this day, my husband teases me every time I go to make a cobbler. So here's my advice: use the 13x9 pan :)

Many of our meals around here have gotten pretty simple. By the time my day is over with the daycare kids, I am exhausted and the last thing I want to do is cook ANOTHER meal. So, we've resorted to simple things I can make in under 30 minutes. The other night, to offset our 15 minute baked tilapia, microwaved baked potatoes, and sauteed green beans, I decided to pop one of these in the oven. It was so yummy! I think it more than made up for my lazy meal...even though it's totally an effortless dessert :)

1 large can of peaches
1 stick margarine/butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup self-rising flour

1. Melt butter and put in a 13x9 inch pan.
2. Blend together sugar, flour, and milk
3. Pour peaches with juice in the pan.
4. Pour mixture on top.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. 
I also like a sprinkle of cinnamon on mine :)
