Eating a fruit cobbler is like wearing a woolly sweater—soft, warm, and cozy. And cobblers go well with ice cream, which makes me enjoy them more.

Easy Peach Cobbler

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 cup milk
4 cups peeled, pitted and thinly sliced fresh peaches (5 to 6 medium peaches)
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
Several dashes of ground cinnamon or ground nutmeg (optional)

Preheat oven 375º.

Pour the melted butter into 13X9X2-inch baking dish.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, 1 cup sugar, baking power, and salt and mix well.
Stir in the milk, mixing until just combined. Pour the batter over the butter, but don't stir together.

In a small saucepan, combine peaches, lemon juice, and remaining cup of sugar and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Pour the peaches over the battter, but do not stir them together. Sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg if desired.

Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until the top is golden-brown. Serve warm or cold.

My notes
I used multiple fruits—2 large peaches, 1 red plum, and 6oz. of blackberries—and baked in a square pan. I also exercised the option not to use nutmeg.
