Good morning it’s Saturday brunch!

4 Aug

Today is an amazing day already for two reasons: 1 it’s Saturday so it means lazy weekend with Tummy boy, great brunch and going out; 2 I just made Peach cobbler for the first time and (thanks Paula Dean) it turned great!

There is nothing such as cobbler in French cuisine (and I don’t know the translation). It could be described as a mix between Tarte tatin, Crumble, Gâteau aux fruits. Anyway it is made with fruits and you can usually serve it warm with a scoop of ice-cream or whipped cream.

Since I had no idea before on how to make peach cobbler, I took Paula Dean‘s recipe, a safe bet. It turned out to be extremely easy to make and delicious! We served it with some butterfinger ice-cream Tummy boy made last night. Yummy!!

Below is the recipe:

Peach Cobbler

Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 45 min
Serves: 8 to 10 servings


  • 4 cups peeled, sliced peaches
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • Ground cinnamon, optional


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the peaches, 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.
