Post #25: Peach Cobbler (with Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream!)

Sometimes ice cream is good enough to hit the spot.  Other times, it needs a little somthin' somthin'.  You know what I mean. 

If you have ever been fortunate enough to live in/visit the Austin area of Texas, I'm sure you have been to The Salt Lick - an amazing barbecue restaurant in the middle of nowhere, but somewhere around Austin.  Everything there is perfect, and the peach cobbler is no different!  I'm willing to bet that the only place that peach cobbler tastes better is Grandma's house deep in the heart of Georgia.  But seeing as how my grandma can't cook and lives in Canada, I have to settle with the Salt Lick.  Lucky for us non-Georgia grandma having types, this is hardly settling. 

Peach Cobbler - Salt Lick Style


1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup room temperature milk
1 room temperature egg


1 (28 ounce) can sliced peaches, drained (I used fresh peaches, 2 large peaches will do!)
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg


Melt butter in a 9 x 13 inch pan.

Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder & salt.
Stir in milk & egg.
Pour evenly over melted butter.
Combine peaches, sugar & spices and spread over batter-DO NOT STIR!
Bake 35-45 minutes at 350°F until batter comes to the top and is golden brown.
Serve warm with homemade vanilla ice cream (recipe right below this one!)
