Chef Virginia Willis' Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups peeled and sliced Pearson peaches, juices reserved
- Ice Cream, for serving
- Mint, for garnish
Heat the oven to 350°F. Place the butter in a 9 x l3-inch ovenproof serving dish or 8-inch cast iron skillet and transfer to the preheated oven to melt.
Meanwhile, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Add the milk, sugar, and vanilla and stir to combine.
Remove the hot dish with the melted butter from the oven. Pour the batter into the hot pan. Spoon the peaches and then the juices evenly over the batter. Return the pan to the oven and bake until brown and the batter has risen up and around the fruit, about 30 minutes. Remove to a rack to cool slightly. Serve with ice cream and garnish with fresh mint.
