I grew up with my mom making this peach cobbler as a special breakfast treat. My husband still cannot believe we used to eat this for breakfast, but I think it’s perfect for any time of day. It’s a super easy recipe that will automatically put you in the wonderful wife category. We’ve always favored peaches as our fruit of choice, but it is delicious with apples as well!
First you’ll mix in a casserole or gratin dish:
1 ½ – 2 cups fruit, ½ cup sugar, ¼ cup water and ½ teaspoon vanilla and top with cinnamon.
Then, microwave it for about 1 minute until it is warmed up a bit. (You can also do this in a pan on the stove if you prefer not to use a microwave and just heat for a few minutes on medium until warm.)
Grease a glass pie dish and put the fruit in the dish while you prepare the topping.
To make the topping mix in a medium mixing bowl:
1 egg, ½ cup sugar, 1 tablespoon of shortening (I think melted butter is best, but I have used safflower oil and sunflower oil, too), 1 tablespoon milk, ½ cup flour, ½ tablespoon baking powder and ¼ teaspoon salt and stir with a fork until combined.
Pour the topping over the fruit and bake for 25-30 minutes in a 350 degree oven until lightly browned on top. Allow to cool for a little while before serving, but it’s delicious warm or cold! Be prepared for praise. Enjoy…and have it for breakfast. Live a little! It’s my favorite way to eat a peach!
