Aunt Clara’s Mini Peach Cobbler

Posted by on Jan 8, 2015 in Faith |

Aunt Clara is a mentor to Anna, the heroine in my recently released historical romance, Watercolor Dreams. Anna is better suited to paint watercolor paintings, but everyone knows the key to a man’s heart is through his stomach. 🙂 Throughout the book Aunt Clara teaches Anna more than her way around a kitchen. Read Watercolor Dreams to find out!

This dessert recipe inspired by Aunt Clara is easy and delicious, and the perfect size to keep portions under control—unless you eat more than one.


You will need:

½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted

1 cup sugar

1 cup flour

2 tsp. baking powder

dash of salt

¾ cup milk

1 can diced peaches

dash of brown sugar

dash of cinnamon


What you do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put 1 teaspoon of melted butter into each muffin tin.
  3. Stir together the sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, and milk.
  4. Put 2 tablespoons of batter into each muffin tin.
  5. Add 1 tablespoon of diced peaches to the top of the batter.
  6. Sprinkle each one with brown sugar and cinnamon.
