My Favorite Dessert Recipe Link up!

No one in my family eats many sweets.  Well, I take that back.  Barb Wire Man is not a big sweet eater.  Rarely have I ever seen him eat a piece of cake, pie, cookie or brownie.  I only like it occasionally.  My kids are not big sweet eaters because I just don't allow it.

But every now and then, a sweet tooth will attack.  And I indulge.

My all time, most favorite evvvvvver sweet in the world is dump cake.  It is the simplest thing in the world to make, since all you do is dump a can of crushed pineapple and a can of cherry pie filling into a pan, sprinkle it with yellow cake mix, dot it with butter and bake it.  Unfortunately, I'm allergic to pineapple, and haven't been able to eat my favorite thing ever in several years.  It really sucks, friends.

So, I move on to my next all time favorite: Peach Cobbler.

It has to be just right, though.  Some make their cobblers with pie-like crusts, some make them with more of a cake/dumpling topping.  The latter is how I prefer and make mine.  I found this recipe in an old cookbook that I inherited from my Grandma, and it has been my go-to dessert for awhile now.  Since I found this recipe, and didn't make it up entirely on my own, I'll share it with you today!  (Remember....the only thing I'm stingy with are my original recipes!)

Peach (or any fruit) Cobbler, Texas Style
2 Cups of fresh fruit mixed with 1 Cup of sugar OR 1 can of fruit pie filling  **trust me...fresh is best!**
1 C Sugar 
1/4 tsp. salt
1 stick of butter
3/4 C. flour
2/4 C. milk

Mix sugar and fruit.  Let set to pull out juices.  Heat oven to 350 and melt butter in a square baking dish.  Mix all dry ingredients, then slowly pour in milk.  Mix until there are no lumps.  Pour batter over the completely melted butter, but do not mix or stir!  Spoon fruit mixture over the batter.  Again, do not stir!  Put it in the oven, and allow to bake for about 45 minutes, or until the top is browned and a toothpick comes out of the topping clean.

For this cobbler to be at its finest, top with some homemade vanilla ice cream, or fresh cream.  It is delish!

  1. I make tons of peach pies and raisin pies. We have a monthly fund raiser at church to pay our utilities and I bring pies to go with the meals.

    I like raisin pie, but don't love it. I like peach pie more but don't love it. It is just easy for me to make. I always make my own pie crusts which is the true secret to having a good pie.

    Now my favorite sweet is my chocolate pie. Homemade crust, cooked ingredients for the filling and stiff peaks on the merengue and browned just so. Then let it cool. Get a fork and start eating!

    No recipe sharing for me :-)

    I will have to try the cobbler for a fellowship dinner. Sounds so easy and definately less work than making and rolling a pie crust to just over 1/8".

    Have a wonderful afternoon.
