Peach Cobbler Cake

 There is something just so warm and inviting about a cobbler isn't there?  I mean you have fruit, you have sweetness, you top it off with ice cream...
I know!

Recently we went to a farmer's market and purchased some very lovely peaches.  They were bit on the firm side, which honestly is my favorite way to eat them sliced, just like that.  I had a few left that I could obviously see the family was just not going to finish them off.  What is a frugal minded mom to do you ask?  Make a cobbler!

This is a very simple recipe with the ease of a boxed cake mix.  It does make one 13 x 9 and one 9 x 9.  You can certainly freeze the smaller one for a future use, or share like I did with family, friends or in my case neighbors.

Ready for this simple recipe?  Here we go;

Prep time: 30 minutes
Bake time: 21-28 minutes
Yield: 8-10 servings (13 x 9)

Yellow or white cake mix (see notes below)
6 cups fresh peaches, thinly sliced
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp all spice
1 tsp vanilla
juice of 1 lemon
zest of 1 lemon
1/3 cup sugar
1 stick + 3 tbsp butter

Notes:  For the cake mix; prepare according to directions, but substitute milk in place of the oil.  

-Using a large pan, place the peaches and the next 6 ingredients and saute just for about 2 minutes or so, till the peaches have softened just a little.  You will know they are ready when you can see the juices starting to bubble.  Turn off heat and set aside.

-Preheat oven to 350F, (follow the directions for lower temperature on the cake mix if using a metal baking pan).

-Melt the butter and distribute the butter between the two pans making sure that both the bottoms are coated.

-Prepare your cake mix according to directions using the notes above.  We really do not need all that oil after we have so much butter right?  I know!

-Pour batter between the two pans.

-Add your peaches directly into the batter.

 -Bake for 25-28 minutes for the 13 x 9.  The 9 x 9 should be done in about 20 or so.  Test using a toothpick to make sure, you don't want to over bake it.

-Remove from oven, let cool for a few minutes.  You can serve this warm with ice cream.  I highly recommend it!

I served salted caramel ice cream for this baby... can I just say; "oh man, oh man".

Till next time!
