Mia's Southern Upside-Down Peach Cobbler

I found an old southern recipe, and revised/simplified it so I could make it in under an hour from start to finish! This is a great seasonal dessert, and definetely a family favorite!

1. Peel & chop 2 cups of fresh peaches. 2. Heat the peaches in saucepan (on Med. heat) with 1/2 cup sugar,
'till sugar is dissolved and peaches are good 'n hot.

3. Add 1 tsp of Vanilla Extract, stir, then reduce heat to Low.
Meanwhile, melt 1 stick of butter (in a 2 QT baking dish) in a 350 degree oven.

4. In a seperate bowl, mix 3/4 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, and 1/4 tsp salt.

5. Add 3/4 cups milk to the dry ingredients

5. Mash & remove any lumps in batter--By the way, it's ok if the mixture looks a little thin.

6. Take the dish out of the oven, and pour batter onto melted butter--

Do Not Stir!
Put the dish in the oven for 5 minutes, so the bottom can firm up.

7. Pour/Spoon the hot peaches onto the batter--

Do Not Stir!

8. This is what it should look like after you pour the peaches carefully onto the batter. Now put the dish back into the oven.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until top is golden brown.

9. Carefully remove the cobbler from the oven....

10. Enjoy!!

It's delicious served with homemade vanilla icecream on the side :)
