Aunt Karma's Sunday Cobbler

Recipe: Aunt Karma's Sunday Cobbler

Summary: For a couple years, my niece, Kelly and her family, would come over every Sunday for dinner. My teenage boys taught Kelly’s little boys to say “Rock On!” (with the fingers and everything). My boys became known as the “Rock On” boys and soon my kids were asking “Are the little ‘Rock On’ boys coming over today?” We miss you, Kelly, Marty, Ry, Kol and Tate and I’ll cook whatever you want if you come over this Sunday!

Ingredients

Filling:

  • 3 pounds fresh peaches - peeled, pitted and sliced (because I like peaches, but any "cobbler suitable" fruit can be substituted)
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ⅓ cup orange juice
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Cobbler “crust”:

  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1¼ cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  1. For filling: In a large saucepan, mix the peaches, lemon juice, and orange juice. Add ½ cup butter, and cook over medium-low heat until butter is melted.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together 2 cups sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cornstarch; mix into peach mixture.
  3. For crust: Melt butter and poor into 9 x 13 baking pan. Allow to cool.
  4. In a separate bowl, stir together flour sugar, salt and baking powder. Mix in milk and vanilla.
  5. Pour batter over melted butter. Do not mix or stir.
  6. Spoon filling, evenly, over the batter. Do not mix or stir.
  7. Bake for 50-55 minutes at 350°.
  8. Filling will sink to the bottom and be covered in the cake-like crust.
