Lately, I've been hooked on apples. Nothing smells better than apples cooking in a slow cooker. So far, in October, I've cooked 3 batches of applesauce, apple and raisin cobbler, and apple crisp---all in the slow cooker. Applesauce Recipe
I choose only fresh apples, straight from the orchard. So this week, I decided to add fresh Granny Smith apples to my peach cobbler recipe. How yummy does that sound? I wasn't disapointed. The delicious taste matched the amazing aroma. This recipe, Peach Apple Cobbler was a keeper. Here is the easy recipe:
(For a 7 quart Slow Cooker)
2 cups cake flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup evaporated milk
4 cups ripe peaches, mashed,(canned peaches made be used)
6 large Granny Smith Apples (peeled, cored, and sliced)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Lightly spray slow cooker with non-stick coating spray. In large bowl, gently toss peaches and apples in 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Add vanilla and cinnamon. Stir well and place in slow cooker.
In a medium bowl, combine remaining sugars, milk, and cake flour. Whisk until blended. Pour over peaches and apples in slow cooker. Cover tightly and cook on Low setting for 6 to 8 hours or on High for 3 to 4 hours, or until cobbler is set in center. Serve warm.
Top with vanilla ice cream if desired I used Vanilla flavor Cool Whip instead of ice cream. (Note: Be sure to throughly drain your fruit. Add sugars to peaches and apples to your taste. My family tends to like it very sweet. Adjust for the size of your apples/peaches or use of canned fruit.)
