Easy Peasy Peach Cobbler, a Family Movie Night Treat

Tomorrow night is Friday, which for my family is our weekly movie night. Collin and Evelyn are the only ones home this week; so they will hunker down on the living room floor with pillows and blankets abound while Jacob chooses a movie from our Netflix queue. Inevitably, Collin will shout, “that one…no that one….oh! I wanna watch this one, Cub Cub,” as Jacob glides over the options. Once everyone is settled in, it’s time for snacks or dessert, whichever I’ve whipped up that week or whatever I have on hand in the cupboard for those weeks of I just can’t muster anything but a box of Oreos. The kids delight in the everything goes attitude we adopt for those few short hours each week when they’re allowed to eat on the living room floor. Usually the end of the movie reveals empty plates which were cleaned by scavenging dogs, and sleeping babes curled up in the mess of pillows, cherished blankets, and footie jammas that we just aren’t ready to see them outgrow. We love our Friday nights around here.
This week, I found, or rather made, some time to create a baked treat despite the chaos that our home was consumed by (if you follow me on Instagram, you saw the videos), I knew I wanted to bake. I wasn’t going to let the Week of Crazy defeat me & I declared such, shaking an angry fist in the air, with this easy peach cobbler bake. We enjoyed our warm, fruity, melt in your mouth cobbler that concluded our week with a comforting hug despite the crazy we experienced this week.

- 2 sticks butter, melted
- 2 cups flour

- In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, milk. and baking powder to form a batter.
- Take your peaches and pour melted butter over top.
- Next add the batter.
- Bake for 30-45 minutes until edges are crispy.
Lately, we’re loving on some animal movies around here. No doubt you’ll find us Friday night watching The Adventures of Puss in Boots or maybe even some Jumanji. Once the kids are asleep, I’ll silently tip toe to bed and binge watch Friends into the wee hours because I just can’t help myself when it comes to getting a nightly helping of Ross and Rachel.
