{October 26, 2011}   Paula Dean Wins In our House

My mom, bless her heart, tried to text me her recipe for cobbler and it came through as half the ingredients and half the directions.  Her emails weren’t going through on Facebook so we tried giving her a call.  She didn’t answer so in a pinch and craving home made cobbler we turned to Google.

Now my mom doesn’t care for Paula Dean and I have my own theory about why.  It’s because Ms Paula is making money cooking the same style and taste my mom has done all my life.  So when I want something close to my momma’s I know Paula has the answer and she didn’t disappoint.


We had to add a tablespoon of baking powder to our flour and we used home canned peaches & pears mixed.  It was the most delicious cobbler I can remember having.  And almost a dead ringer for momma’s! The one thing the recipe left out was telling us how much fruit syrup to use.  So we made a bit of a soup our first try but mom quickly corrected that when she called me this evening.   She suggests 3/4’s of a cup to a cup of syrup is all we needed and that you could forgo the milk and mix the syrup directly into your batter if you wanted a stronger fruit taste.
