Quick and Easy Peach Cobbler

Where has the summer gone? I can’t believe it’s almost over! In spite of the record breaking heat and humidity of July, I still hate to see it end.

I know it’s been a few months since I’ve posted anything, and I do have a few recipes in the wings that just need to be worked on but once July hit, I had no energy, or desire, to cook, bake or blog. Now that we have some mornings where there is a little hint of fall in the air (my favorite time of the year) and we no longer have 98 degree days, with a heat index of over 100 degrees, I decided to get back to work. No sooner had the temperatures returned to normal and I was getting ready to get into some serious cooking and baking, I wrecked my bike and due to swollen, painful and scraped knees, not to mention the bruises (won’t even get into my bruised ego), I wasn’t up to getting back in the kitchen for a while. At my age, I don’t bounce back from accidents like I used to. Ok, whining is now over....time to get on with my recipe.
Since we are right in the middle of peach season and, even though Ohio isn’t known for peaches, we do have some lovely, delicious peaches that are ready for eating and baking. One of my favorite dishes to make this time of year is peach cobbler. The recipe that I make is actually one that my sister, Jean makes a lot and she has shared with me. It’s not what a lot of people know as a traditional cobbler, with a biscuit type topping, but one that has a sweet cake that rises up around the peach filling. As soon as my local farmers market had peaches, I bought several and started peeling, slicing and baking.
