If you don’t want to take the time to make your own crust or don’t have pre-made crust on hand, consider the following recipe as an option. It’s easy to make and is good enough to be considered a “comfort food” dessert.
You can also make this recipe with fresh or frozen fruit… using just peaches or a combination such as peaches, blueberries and raspberries. Sounds yummy, doesn’t it?
Peach cobbler is traditionally served warm. However, there is certainly nothing wrong with enjoying it straight out of the fridge.
- ½ cup butter (melted)
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 t. baking powder
- ¼ t. salt
- ⅔ cup milk (room temperature)
- 1 egg (room temperature)
- 1 (28 ounce) can sliced peaches (drained)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 t. cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon nutmeg
- Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
- Melt butter and transfer to a 9 x 13 inch pan.
- Mix dry crust ingredients together.
- Add milk and egg. Combine to mix thoroughly.
- Pour crust mixture evenly over the melted butter.
- Combine filling ingredients and carefully spread over the batter-DO NOT STIR!
- Bake 35-45 minutes until the crust is golden brown.
While my grandma probably would have never attempted to make this peach cobbler with canned peaches, I’m looking forward to trying it. I hope you’ll try it, too!
I don’t know of many people who can resist a banana split. Do you? If you love these frozen concoctions as much as I do, consider trying the Banana Split Dessert that I found waiting for me at Amy’s Finer Things.
My grandma made something similar that she always referred to as Florida Dessert Cake. It didn’t have chocolate or maraschino cherries in it, but it was delicious just the same.
Amy’s recipe is easy-peasy. It has a traditional graham cracker crust, a rich cream cheese filling and banana split ingredients on top.
It’s the perfect choice for any summertime “bring something” event you’ll be attending. Chances are good that all that will come home with you is an empty dish.
(I suggest that you print copies of the recipe to take with you. Your family and friends will thank you for it.)
This recipe needs to be refrigerated for several hours, before serving. Overnight works even better. So, keep in mind it’s not something you can whip up a couple hours before you walk out the door.
Please take a few minutes to check out Amy’s Finer Things. In addition to recipes, Amy talks about debt-free living, motherhood and much more.
Paula Deen has an alternative recipe that calls for a lot more butter. Surprise… surprise! Looking at it again, it’s classified as a cake. Oops! However, it does have a graham cracker “crust.” I guess that’s what threw me.
Personally, I’d opt for the first recipe. It sounds more banana splity. But, the choice is up to you.
What is your idea of the ULTIMATE banana split… dessert or otherwise? My inquiring mind wants to know!
According to Erica, this yummy looking bread is almost a cake. The super moist texture is most likely due to the lemon syrup that you pour over the cake (in “poke cake” fashion) while it’s still warm. But you’re not done yet…
The last step to making this bread is frosting it with a VERY simple lemon glaze that consists of powdered sugar and lemon juice. Just whip the glaze together, pour it over the top and allow it to harden before serving.
You can use fresh or frozen blueberries, whichever you prefer. The recipe also calls for one cup of plain yogurt. I think lemon yogurt would work equally well. What do you think?
Personally, I won’t need a special occasion to bake this lemon blueberry bread. But, I think it would be perfect to serve at a springtime baby or bridal shower or for a Mother’s Day brunch.
The US Highbush Blueberry Council points out that blueberries are not only delicious, they’re good for us too. They’re packed with vitamin C and are a great source of dietary fiber. They are also high in antioxidants and manganese which aids in proper bone development.
I encourage you to visit Erica’s Sweet Tooth, to read more about her baking adventures. You’ll be glad you did.
