Audley and I are blessed to host a Life Group (small group Bible study) in our home each Sunday evening. One of the most enjoyable aspects of the evening is sharing Sunday supper together before we begin. We generally pick a theme and everyone brings something to accompany the main dish. It’s a great way to spend time with our Christian family before the chaos of the week begins.
This week after Audley sent the email out for our potluck, I realized that we had left dessert off the list. As you know, you can’t have a true Sunday supper without ending with a yummy dessert! It’s just not the southern way of doing things!
Looking through my cabinets I discovered the ingredients for a simple “Cuppa” Cobbler that would be sure to satisfy the need for dessert.
It’s not elaborate, nor is it beautiful, but in case you aren’t sure what a “cuppa” cobbler is, let me share the easiest dessert ever!
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup whole milk
1 stick of butter
1 quart fresh peaches (or any other fruit you would like to use)
ASSEMBLING YOUR CUPPA COBBLER
**Preheat your oven to 375°. In an enamel plated cast iron pan (11 3/4 Lodge enamelware) melt your stick of butter. You can also use a 9×11 cake pan. While the butter is melting, mix together the “cuppa” flour, sugar and milk to form a batter. Remove the pan from the oven when the butter is completely melted. Pour the batter over the melted butter, then add your fruit to the top.
**Return the pan to the oven and bake 30-45 minutes (ovens vary as you know) until the crust has risen over most of the fruit and is cooked through.
Serve with homemade whipped cream or scrumptious vanilla ice cream.
Once again I do want emphasize, this is not beautiful dessert. It’s not meant to be. “Cuppa” Peach Cobbler is supposed to be easy and delicious.
And I assure you, it is!
This recipe has been around literally for generations. I have even seen a version of this (made using fruit cocktail instead of fresh fruit) from a 1950s magazine.
My grandmother and my mother both used this recipe throughout my life. Now I use it in a pinch, and have taught my girls this simple dessert perfect for any time.
If you are counting, that’s four generations of women in my family that have used the “Cuppa” Cobbler.
Keep this handy, as I promise you will find plenty of use for the “cuppa” cobbler and maybe you can pass it along to the next generation as well!
Happy Monday Y’all!
