This rich, buttery peach cobbler just melts in your mouth at the first bite. I made this for dessert when my in-laws came into town for a visit and I had to make this twice on back to back days. The second batch I even doubled. It was such a hit, they had seconds for dessert and even ate it for breakfast! It was a bad week to start two Healthy Habit Challenge Groups!
Can you imagine how great this will be in the summertime when the peaches are fresh?! I have two peach trees in my backyard and my husband already made the comment how he can't wait until those trees start producing so I can make this again with fresh peaches.
For the recipe, I just used canned peaches, which is still good but you probably want to lay off the extra sugar on top if these are already drowning in heavy syrup.
This is NOT a low calorie dessert. Melt 1 stick (1/2 C) of butter in a baking dish.
Mix your batter and put on top of the butter but do NOT mix.
Layer on your drained peaches on top of the batter and again do NOT mix.
Add a little sugar on top.
Voila! I didn't get a staged pretty picture on a plate because once it was dished out, it was gone and plates were licked clean!
