The last 1-2 years that I lived in Charlotte are filled with memories. Memories of hanging out with 2 of my favorite people in the world….my BFF’s Chris & Sarah.
Aren’t we cute?
My favorite times with Chris & Sarah were Sundays. Chris & I would head over to Sarah’s around 10 am. Sarah would make us breakfast while I’d read magazines and Chris would surf the Internet. We would plan the next concert we would go see together. We’d rehash Saturday night and whether we drank too much. We’d see if there was a movie we wanted to see that afternoon. We’d make our way through watching episodes of Arrested Development. We’d watch in awe of how much Sarah’s cat, Gary, was in LOVE with Chris. We’d make snarky comments about anything and everything.
Sundays also often meant Sarah would make us peach cobbler in the afternoon.
This Sunday, Sarah, Chris and I will be together again for a day up in Lawrence for a charity event. I.can’t.wait. We haven’t been together in about a year and a half. Although there won’t be peach cobbler, it will feel like home on Sunday.
Recipe from Food.com (this is the one Sarah uses!)
Serves 12. 277 calories per serving.
For the batter:
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup room temperature milk (I used skim milk.)
1 room temperature egg
For the filling:
1 (28 ounce) can sliced peaches, drained
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon (I used a HEAPING teaspoon. I heart cinnamon.)
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a 9×13 inch baking dish, melt your butter. Set baking dish aside.
In a bowl, mix together your flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in your milk and egg. Pour your batter mixture in your baking dish over the melted butter. Spread evenly with a spatula.
In a separate bowl, combine your peaches, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Spread the filling over the batter. Do NOT stir the filling into the batter.
Bake for 35-45 minutes under golden brown. Through the magic of science, the batter will rise over the top of the peach filling as it bakes!
Serve warm with vanilla bean ice cream. Try to not to dig in so fast that you burn your mouth on hot peach filling! I speak from experience. 😉
