Recipes I love from the Peach State

Parsley at Seasons of the Mind is having a World Recipe Exchange and I just sent her my favorites from Georgia, USA.
You can click on her blog   here
Email her two recipes from your neck of the woods!

Here are 2 recipes from the Georgia state (Peach state)
The first one is simple and easy and I use it with any fruit but especially Peach Cobbler. Bluberries are good too.

Quick Peach Cobbler from a Southern Peach (me)---Click HERE for pictures from mine

1 stick of butter, melted

1 cup of self-rising flour

1 cup of sugar

1 cup of milk

4 cups of sliced sweetened peaches (best if fresh but can use canned)
a good sprinkling of cinnamon and a dab of vanilla

Melt butter in the baking pan. I use a Corning dish and melt in the microwave.

Combine the flou, sugar, and the milk into another bowl. Pour the flour mixture (may be lumpy) directed over the melted butter in the center of the Corning dish.

DO NOT STIR. Take hunks of fruit, peaches and just placed them in the dish randomly. Do not stir.

Crust will rise up through the peaches.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until brown.
This is my favorite way to make Peach Cobbler and my husband can eat it in bowls by the end of the day!

Serve with good vanilla ice cream on top or whipping cream.

Second recipe, another favorite of the Southern Girl (me)!
Super Southern Cornbread---click here for the full meal and pictures

2 cups of self-rising cornmeal (yellow)--not corn meal mix but the real stuff from the grainary

2 eggs

1/2 cup of vegetable oil

1 --15 oz can of sweet creamed corn

1 cup of sour cream.

Mix by stirring, no mixer. Let it sit for 15 minutes.

Pour in a well-greased (shortening coated not butter or it will burn) black cast iron pan, already hot in a 425 oven. I use my cast iron frying pan.

Bake for about 20 minutes. I like to serve this with a good, long all-day cooking of dried beans, chili, or with any Southern vegetable.

Extra cornbread can be saved for doggie treats the next day. They love it!

You can't go wrong with Southern Peach Cobbler and Cornbread added to your meal. (Well, I guess you could if you are having a lipid profile done the next morning at the doctor's office but........who's counting today, right?)
