One old-fashioned cobbler recipe is Virginia Willis' old-fashioned peach cobbler from FoodNetwork.com. The recipe takes 45 minutes to make and includes ingredients such as peaches, sugar, flour, baking powder and milk.
Place 1/2 cup of unsalted butter in a casserole dish or cast-iron skillet, and put it in an oven preheated to 350 F for five to seven minutes. In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 cup of flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder and a pinch of salt. Add 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of milk and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and whisk until the mixture is evenly blended. Take the butter out of the oven, add it to the batter, and immediately pour the batter into the dish. Add 4 cups of sliced peaches with juice into the center of the batter, and gently jiggle the dish to evenly spread out the peaches. If the peaches aren't sweet, sprinkle them with a little sugar.
Place the dish back into the oven and cook until the top turns golden or a fork inserted into the batter comes out clean. Serve the dish hot or at room temperature with whipped cream or ice cream. This recipe yields eight servings.
