All the peaches we picked a few weeks ago have softened up after being in a paper bag, so we decided to start baking with them. Our recipe of choice for dessert? Paula Deen's Peach Cobbler. Yum! I made it a few years ago, and it was just as good as I remembered. The neat thing is that you assemble it upside-down - cobbler batter on the bottom, and fruit on top (pardon the terribly dark photo).
The recipe uses self-rising flour, so the batter rises to the top as it bakes!

- 4 cups peeled, sliced peaches
- 2 cups sugar, divided
- 1/2 cup water
- 8 tablespoons butter
- 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- Ground cinnamon, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the peaches, 1 cup sugar, and water in a saucepan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Put the butter in a 3-quart baking dish and place in oven to melt.
Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup. Sprinkle top with ground cinnamon, if using. Batter will rise to top during baking. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes.
