BackstoryApricots was a treat for us. We had peach trees a plenty. But when we sold at Farmers Market in Nashville, Grand daddy CLOUSE would get a peck of apricots. And what was not eat at the market and made it home was used in this recipe by Granny CLOUSE
- ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- ¾ cup milk
- 4 cups sliced fresh apricots, peeled or skins left on
- ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon almond flavoring
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Wash, peel and slice the apricots. You can slice them thin or thick as you prefer.
- Melt the stick of butter in a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat until it bubbles and turns
- golden-brown. Be careful: it will burn quickly and easily! Pour the butter into an 8" square sprayed baking dish.
- In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, almond flavoring and milk. Pour the batter on top of the melted butter. Do not stir.
- Add the apricots, without mixing, arrange the apricots evenly on top of the batter. Evenly sprinkle the brown sugar over the cobbler.
- Bake the cobbler for 40 to 45 minutes, until the top turns golden brown. The batter will migrate from the bottom of the pan to cover the apricots slices partially.
- Serve warm or at room temperature; preferably with homemade apricot ice cream!
- Substitutions: In most recipes, frozen or canned apricots can be substituted for fresh apricots. The frozen and canned apricots have already been sweetened; therefore, the amount of sugar called for in a recipe will have to be adjusted. Also, the apricots should usually be drained before using.
