|Not the prettiest of presentations|
Baking is not one of my strong points. I try to bake, but I'm not one to measure, which completely defeats the purpose of baking. Yesterday, my cousin came over with a bunch of peaches and my mom requested peach cobbler. I've never made this before so I naturally turned to the queen of Southern Cooking (in my opinion, refute if you want to) Ms. Paul Deen. I'm Paula Deen and I loooove butter!!
I went to the Food Network and looked up one of her recipes for Peach Cobbler. Now the one thing I did not have that the recipe called for was self-rising flour, which in hindsight is rather imperative. I used regular unbleached flour in hopes of getting a similar effect. Well, I didn't. Instead of rising over the peaches, it baked on the bottom. If I had poured the mixture on top, then I would have gotten a similar effect; however, I didn't and that's how I created reverse peach cobbler.
Reverse Rose Peach Cobbler
- 7 peaches, peeled and sliced
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1 tbs of rose water
- 2 cups of sugar
- 8 tbs. butter (I used Smart Balance)
- 1 1/2 cups of unbleached flour
- 1 1/2 cups of milk
- Ground cinnamon
1. Peel and slice the fresh peaches. Peeling a peach is not an easy task, let me tell you.
2. In a sauce pan, place the peaches, water and 1 cup of sugar. Mix thoroughly and then boil. Once boiling, turn it down to a simmer and let it sit for 10 minutes. Take off the heat, and then add the rose water and mix in.
3. In a 3 quart baking dish, add the butter and melt in a 350F degree oven.
4. In a bowl, add the flour and sugar. Then slowly add in the milk in order to prevent lumps. I failed epically at avoiding lumps.
5. Take out the baking dish, and add the flour mixture. Next, spoon in the peaches and syrup. Sprinkle cinnamon powder on top.
6. Place in the oven and bake at 350F, 30-45 minutes. Take out of the oven and cool.
