In the winter, I find myself longing for warm, fruit desserts. After Christmas, I need something lighter than creme brûlée or chocolate tort. I want something fruity and warming and easy to make.
Happily, I preserve a lot of fruit in the summer so that I may enjoy it in the winter. I have canned peaches in syrup which are easily turned into a delicious and embarrassingly easy dessert to make. Melt the butter, pour in the batter, then tip in the peaches with their sugary jucies. If you desire crunch, toss in some nuts. Bake and voila, delicious cobbler.
This dessert only requires a pan, a bowl and a whisk. You can make it for unexpected company in a trice or just for yourself after a long day. If you want to make it truly decadent, add a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream. Yum!
16 ounces of sliced peaches in syrup (storebought or homemade)
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/8 cup milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped pecans
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Pour the melted butter into a 9 by 9 inch pan.
Meanwhile, mix together the sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, milk and cinnamon into a smooth batter. Pour and spread the batter on top of the melted butter. Pour the can of peaches with juices on top of the batter, then sprinkled over the pecans.
Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until bubbling and brown. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving up. Enjoy!
