I picked fresh peaches a few weeks ago. When making peach cobbler, I decided to try a variation on Mom's Dump Cake for the crumb topping.
Again, I rarely measure anything, so I'm estimating!
Best Peach Cobbler
8-10 fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
1 cup of sugar
Cook this together on the stove, until it bubbles, then add:
1-2 Tablespoons of flour
Continue cooking and stirring until it thickens. (It will be like a pie filling consistency.)
Pour this mixture into an 8 X 8 greased pan.
1/2 box of Yellow Cake Mix (I can't find the Jiffy Cake Mix at our store, so I just use half of the full size.)
2 cups of Old Fashioned Oatmeal
1 Tablespoon of cinnamon
Mix this together well and sprinkle over the peach mixture in the pan. (I like the change in texture because of the oats!)
1 stick of butter- cut into small pieces and dot over the top of the topping mixture. (Mom used to melt the butter and drizzle it. It melts either way, so I eliminate this step.)
Bake in the oven on 350 for 20-30 minutes.
Dish it up by the scoop and top with whipped topping, a splash of half and half, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It tastes great warm or cold.
If you're looking for a simple, quick peach cobbler recipe that tastes great--they don't come much better than this one.
