Gimme Some Sugar

Ilva at Lucullian Delights asked us all to show her our kitchens, I did a while back in Heart of Our Home. That blogger roundup was a lot of fun, and there was a huge turnout. Now she is playing show and tell again and is hosting a Show Us Your Apron event.

This is the best chance to show off our WhistleStop Aprons. Aren't they fun? We have several sayings...'The Secret's in the Sauce', 'A pinch o dis~ a pinch o dat', and 'Gimme Some Sugar'.

'Gimmie some sugar' is perfect to wear while I turn my pile of peaches into a yummy peach cobbler. I actually used our cobbler batter mix, because it is so quick and easy. I don't think you can make it any better... but I'll post a recipe in case you want to do it the 'hard' way.

Peach Cobbler
4 cups sliced peaches
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 cup self rising flour
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

Slice peaches, put in a 8x8 baking dish. Sprinkle with half the sugar and set aside. In a mixing bowl, combine butter and sugar, mixing until smooth. Stir in egg, then add self rising flour. Add vanilla. Spoon batter onto peaches. Bake @350° 30-35 minutes.

You have to serve it warm, with a scoop of Mayfield vanilla ice cream.
Y'all enjoy!

Oh golly! I'm trying not to eat sugar but I believe if someone put that in front of me I couldn't resist! Thanks for the recipe.

That peach cobbler looks so yummy! We've had a terrible peach crop year with the late freeze here in GA that I'll be surprised to make one cobbler this year.

The peach cobbler recipe literally made my mouth water just looking at it! Nita

Tracey said...

again, making my mouth water!

Throw in a teaspoon of almond flavoring and you will be LOVING the difference it makes in the taste of the cobbler or a peach pie!

Ca-UTE! You are better than Paula Deen. I mean it. She's kinda vulgar anyway....

ShabbyInTheCity said...

OH gosh...wonder if she reads this blog???

tammy said...

Cool apron! Lordy, I can't wait until we start seeing peaches around here. That cobbler looks goooood.

Justabeachkat said...

Why oh why do I come to your blog this late at night?! I'm drooling...again! I must remember to come right after dinner when I'm full. LOL! Cute apron too.


Carla said...

Wow, you're well ahead of us. Peaches won't be available here for at least a few more weeks. I love peach cobbler. One of my favorites.

Katie Zeller said...

Love the cobbler!
I have tiny, peche de vigne trees (the trees are normal, the peaches are small). I may be inspired to peel the little devils just to have some cobbler! They have a much tougher skin than your American southern peaches ;-)

Sandi - you're killing me here! The peaches at the market yesterday were still 'rock-like'! Hopefully they'll be truly ripe in another week or so and I can enjoy some of your amazing peach treats.

Sandi - thanks for the kind comment regarding my blahs! I'm glad to be over that little episode. By the way, are these "gimme some sugar" aprons for sale? I checked the Whistlestop website and didn't see them, but I think it's something even a non-cook like myself should have! Also - I LOVE THE PICTURES OF THE PEACHES!

Thistlemoon said...

Oh how delicious! I can't wait to try this. The best part will be that my husband hates peaches so I get the whole thing to myself!
