Remember this post? I told you my favorite campfire food is peach cobbler. Growing up, whenever we went camping it was a given that my mom would make cobbler one night, and it was a given that it would be peach cobbler.
The wonder of peach cobbler is that it is so easy. Canned peaches, butter, cake mix, and sugar. Rip, dump, bake. Then you can top that heavenly concoction with ice cream and there is basically nothing on this earth that is better than that.
Well I guess after that post, PH and I both had cobbler on the brain. I told him last night that I still needed to make something for the blog this week, and he said I should make peach cobbler. Well, first he looked at the grocery store ad and saw that peaches were on sale. THEN he said I should make peach cobbler. I had my doubt about making cobbler with peaches purchased that very night, but I agreed and off to the grocery store we went.
White peaches WERE on sale and we bought five of them. I came home and sliced them up. They do look really beautiful, but I have to be honest, these peaches didn't taste very good to me. They weren't ripe enough. So I made my husband cobbler, and I stand by this recipe, but I urge to either, use canned peaches, or, wait until your peaches are ripe. Don't be like me. Don't wait until the last minute to decide what recipe you're going to blog about and then be stuck with not ripe peaches.
I will say though that PH had two servings of the cobbler and he told me he thought it was really good. I even assured him he didn't have to lie to me because I knew the peaches weren't ripe. He was adamant that it tasted better than I thought. So, there you go, to each his own. Maybe it's just my wacky pregnancy tastebuds, or the fact that normally I prefer yellow peaches in cobbler but the white ones were the ones on sale. Either way, I want to be honest with you.
I do still stand by this recipe. You cannot go wrong with butter and cake mix. You really just can't. I used yellow cake mix, and I think that's the best. I have seen other recipes where you make your own topping but that feels wrong to me. Cobbler is supposed to have that cake mix topping taste, in my opinion. It meshes perfectly with the peach taste.
However, I started speculating about trying different peach cobbler recipes after making this. I think my lack of enthusiasm over my unripe peaches got the wheels turning in my head. So, that may be a new quest I embark on. To try out different cobbler recipes. Maybe after all this time I find I like it better without cake mix (but I doubt it.)
So, do you feel like cobbler tonight? You should! Especially if you have ripe peaches, or canned peaches.
