Peach Cobbler

The inspiration for this recipe came from an old neighborhood cookbook my mom bought for me when I was just a young kid.  I've tweaked and adjusted it over the years to become my own.  It is a great way to use peaches, berries, or any kind of fruit.  It works with fresh, canned, bottled, or frozen fruit.  You can even use a can of pie filling.  Your home will smell wonderful and you'll be eating a mouth-watering cobbler in only an hour, start to finish. 

Here's a tip if you have a lot of peaches to peel:  Boil pot of water and place ripe peaches into the water for 30 seconds.  Remove peaches and place into cold water.  The peels will slip right off.  I recently did this with a large number of peaches and it was so easy.  Afterwards, I made this cobbler, and then froze the rest for later.

1/4 cup vegan margarine
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup soy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups peeled, cut up peaches
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/16 teaspoon nutmeg

1.  Place the margarine in the center of an 8x8 baking pan.  Put this in the oven to melt while your even heats to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2.  Mix together the flour, 1/2 cup of sugar, baking powder, soy milk and vanilla, making a batter.
3.  Place the peaches in a separate bowl.  If using canned or bottle fruit, drain them before placing in the bowl.  Sprinkle the peaches with 1 Tablespoon of sugar, the cinnamon and the nutmeg.
4.  Once the oven has heated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and the margarine has melted, remove the pan.  Pour the batter into the pan and then spoon the peaches evenly over the batter.  Resist the temptation to mix the batter and peaches together.  In other words - DO NOT STIR!
5.  Place the pan back into the oven and cook for approximately 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
