Yummy Peach Cobbler

Yummy Peach Cobbler

1/2 cup of butter (1 stick)
1 cup flour
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
1 large can sliced peaches, drained (28 ounces)

Pour butter into glass baking dish (2-3 qt size).  Mix together all dry ingredients.  Add milk.  Stir until smooth and then add peaches.  Pour on top of melted butter in baking dish.  Bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees.  Cool slightly and serve with vanilla ice cream.

This was very easy and yummy!  I used whole wheat flour, but you can use all-purpose or a combination of both.  If you don't like cinnamon you can leave that out.  Enjoy!

The Bomb Banana Bread!

My own special recipe!

1 8 oz. package cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1-1 1/2 cups mashed bananas
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Combine softened cream cheese, butter, and sugar--mix until well blended.
Add in bananas and eggs.  Blend.
Pour in combined dry ingredients and mix just until moistened.
Pour into greased and floured 9 X 5 inch loaf pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Cool 10 minutes.  Remove from pan.

Tips--I use home ground whole wheat flour.  You can use whole wheat, regular, or a combination of the two and this recipe is still delicious!  Add 1/2-1 cup of nuts, if desired.
