Mama's Peach Cobbler

One of my mother's favorite desserts that she has passed the recipe on to me is her Peach Cobbler.  I decided to make it today for July 4, I make it often and wanted to share the recipe with you.

1.  Pour 1 large can of sliced peaches with juice into an oblong pan
2.  Melt one stick of butter and pour over the peaches then mix the following,
3.  In a bowl, combine 1 cup milk, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup flour, 1 t. baking powder, pinch of salt, 1 t. of cinnamon, and 1 t. vanilla.  Mix well. Pour over the peach butter mixture.  Don't stir it in just pour it on top.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 30-45 minutes.  Make sure to watch it and don't let it burn.  Enjoy with icecream.


I want to start out telling you about one of my favorite desserts growing up, watching my grandma and aunt make it, oh the memories. 
Home-style Banana Pudding:
There's just nothing better than Homemade Banana Pudding.  Going to family reunions I can remember one of my aunt's pudding that was always a favorite request by family.  I hope mine is half as good as hers.

  • 1/2 cup sugar 

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  •  1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1-2 teaspoon cornstarch

  • 2 cups milk

  • 3 large eggs, separated, keep the egg whites for the meringue

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons good vanilla flavoring

  • 1 (12 ounce) package vanilla wafers

  • 4-5 large bananas 

  • Mix sugar, salt, and flour in a separate bowl, sifted.  Add water to double boiler pot. Once the water boils, lower temperature and add the sugar mixture and 1/2 the milk.  Cook over medium heat, gradually adding the remaining milk, stirring constantly, add some of the hot mixture to the eggs and add cornstarch and cook until mixture thickens.  Once it thickens, take off burner and add vanilla.  Set aside and let cool.  You may have to stir a few times more as it's cooling.

    Meringue:  Beat the 3 egg whites until stiff, adding cornstarch.  Add 1/4 cup sugar gradually.  Once the soft peaks are formed, add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla flavoring (since I like a good vanilla flavor I add 1 teaspoon).  I also add cornstarch to make sure the egg whites are stiff.    TIP:  If you like a lot of meringue, double the recipe for mile high meringue.

    Assemble the wafers, banana's in layers and add 1/2 of pudding mixture in a casserole dish.  Then, add a second layer of wafers and bananas and top with meringue.  Bake at 350 until brown, about 5 minutes.  Let cool and enjoy!
