Happy Belated Independence Day Everyone!!! I hope that you all had a good fourth yesterday, I know I certainly did! We had a big cook out with all of my family and some friends… it was a great time! I got to go swimming with my dog again and she loved it!! She must have swam with us for a half an hour non-stop!! It was so cute; I wish I had a picture to share with you all! My sister Laura also taught a yoga class in our backyard! It was so calming and nice doing yoga outside in a natural setting! Additionally, I made Paula Deen’s peach cobbler and it was a pretty sweet treat for the fourth! I tried to healthify this recipe a little, but I just couldn’t bring myself to make too many changes… it IS Paula Deen’s recipe after all!! So it is a little bit high in points, but it is fabulous like all of Paula Deen’s recipes!
I had a bit of an adventure trying to make this peach cobbler. I originally tried to make it last weekend…. and it was a terrible disaster! I forgot to add the baking powder and salt, and well lets just say I ended up feeding it to the chickens… at least they enjoyed it! This time, I remembered the baking powder and salt and it was fabulous! Anyways, here is the recipe… and don’t make the same mistake I did!!
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 cups sugar, divided into 2 cups
- 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 1 stick butter
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp table salt
- 3 cups fresh peaches, sliced
Combine 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of water, and the peaches in a sauce pan. Bring the mixture to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Set aside. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Put the stick of butter in a 9 x 12 pan and put the pan in the oven until the butter is melted. While the butter is melting, mix the milk, baking powder, salt, and flour together. Once the butter is melted, pour the flour mixture on top. Spoon the peaches onto the flour mixture, and then pour the syrup on top over the entire pan of cobbler. Sprinkle the cinnamon on top of the cobbler. Place the whole mixture in the oven and bake for about 40 minutes. Enjoy and serve with a scoop of ice cream!Serves 12, WWP+: 8 per serving Adapted from this recipe. While I was photographing my peach cobbler, my cousin Josh thought it looked good! So I gave him the cobbler in the fancy glass that I was taking pictures of! I think he liked it!!!
