Hey everyone, for those who had their first day of school yesterday, I hope it was awesome! Our day started well enough when I sent Jules and JJ off on the bus in the morning. I was really excited for JJ since he was starting Kindergarten. He was lucky enough to get Jules’ old teacher so that was a really special surprise since we love her so much. When I went to get them in the afternoon, both of them weren’t on the bus! My heart skipped a beat and I had to quickly take Emmy to school to figure out what happened to my poor kids. I kept picturing them outside waiting and crying because their bus had left them behind. Well, I went to the school and JJ was still in his classroom and Jules was immediately taken off the wrong bus at the school. Their sweet teachers walked them to the front and they were totally fine. They didn’t even realize what had happened because there was a mix up with the routes on paper. #thankyoujesus Despite the small mix up, their day was fantastic and they were still excited to wake up this morning bright and early.
Summer is leaving us but I didn’t want it to end before I shared our favorite peach cobbler recipe. My bestie, Unchong made this for us once and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I make it every summer now when the peaches are in season. It’s a Paula Deen recipe so you can rest assured it’s got one main ingredient that makes it perfect. #BUTTER It’s also really simple because there aren’t a ton of ingredients. I modified Paula’s recipe by increasing the amount of peaches and decreasing the sugar content. I personally think the original recipe is a little too sweet for my taste. #donttellpaula Don’t worry, I left the butter amount the same and so should you.
- 4 1/2 cups peeled, sliced peaches
- 1 1/2 cups sugar divided
- 1/2 cup water
- 8 tbsp butter
- 1 1/2 cups self rising flour
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a saucepan, combine peaches, water, 3/4 cup of sugar and mix well. Allow it to boil and simmer for 10 minutes and remove from heat.
While you’re boiling the peaches, place the stick of butter in a large rectangular baking dish and put it in the oven to melt.
Mix the flour, milk, and 3/4 cup sugar so there are no clumps. Pour the batter into the melted butter. Do not stir!
Spoon your peach mixture on top of the batter and sprinkle cinnamon on the top. Bake for 30-45 minutes.
Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. I served it with some fresh homemade whipped cream.
I made this for the family before I left for small group and when I came back, the whole dish was nearly gone! My nephews loved it too so I was one happy auntie.
