It is spring and the pollen has been giving me a fit!

My eyes are swollen and itchy so I cannot wear any mascara, my throat is scratchy and I am constantly clearing my throat which not only sounds totally gross. Plus it is also very irritating at the same time.

Yes, I take over the counter allergy medicine every single day. Yes, I also spray my nostrils each morning with another over the counter nasal spray that is meant to stop allergies in its tracks, but it is still bad y’all!

At this very moment, my front porch is completely covered with so much of this powdery yellow substance that I am currently afraid to sweep it off because that will more than likely send me to the hospital…just kidding.

Now don’t get me wrong I love spring. The weather begins to warm up, there are beautiful flowers blooming everywhere, and the sunlight just makes you want to spend more time outside being active.

However, this Florida pollen just makes me want to hibernate in the house like it is still winter time. So with that being said I have not made the time to grocery shop and so today’s recipe will have to include ingredients that I already have in my kitchen and since my mother recently gifted me 2 cans of peaches I have decided to put them to good use and make an easy peach cobbler.

Other ingredients needed for this recipe are milk, butter, sugar, vanilla extract, spices, and self-rising flour. If you have specific dietary needs, feel free to substitute the ingredients as necessary to fit your need. This is one of those recipes that you really cannot mess up.

Why self-rising flour in the peach cobbler?

You want to make sure that you are using self-rising flour instead of all purpose flour for this peach cobbler recipe. The additional acid in the self-rising flour will give rise to the breading and make is light and fluffy. If you do not have any self-rising flour, then you can make it yourself using my self-rising flour recipe.

What is the best way to enjoy peach cobbler?

In my opinion, the best way to serve peach cobbler is warm with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. However, it is amazingly delicious serves as is.

    Mmm.. peach is so dreamy. I simply love it.
    My allergies are so bad this year! They generally aren’t! I don’t get the throat or eyes thing so much but it feels like a cold in the morning and fine by night. And it responds to Zyrtec. And it’s early April! Must be allergies.

      It has been terrible this year! I may have to switch to Zyrtec, but it makes me so sleepy.

    Yum 🙂 We are just starting to get peaches at the grocery store. But I can’t wait until the local ones are ready. Then I’ll buy some and make some cobbler for my family.

      That sounds delicious! I love using fresh peaches in desserts and salads…I have even put them grilled on top of pizza 😉

    It makes me feel good to know I’m not alone battling these spring time allergies. My throat feels like it’s closing up and my ears actually itch, ugh. I grew up eating peach cobbler but have never had the pleasure of trying to make it myself. Maybe it’s time to bite the bullet and do it. This recipe looks simple enough and your pictures made my mouth water.
