The Best Peach Cobbler Recipe

The Best Peach Cobbler Recipe ever. Great balance of flavors with a  buttery crust, a sweet soft center and juicy tart peaches. It's Just like Andy's Cafe.

A few years ago I shared my favorite, and in my humble opinion The Best Peach Cobbler Recipe, here on happymoneysaver. It tastes just like the peach cobbler served at Andy’s Cafe for those who live in the Tri-City, (Pasco. Washington) area.We made it one night with my sister’s family and decided it was “website worthy”. So we took a quick picture (with not so great lighting) and posted the recipe. The pictures from that post did not do this recipe justice.  This recipe is so good and is one of our favorites so I thought I should update it with nicer pictures so as to tempt you into making it.

Time for a funny story. When I made this exact batch of peach cobbler, I had a friend come over and eat it with me. She agreed that it really was the best peach cobbler recipe and she took the remainder of it home to have for dessert later that night. She was so excited to have her kids and husband try it. The next day I asked her how they liked it and I couldn’t help but smile to her response. She looked down.. ashamed. Shocked I said, “Did they not like it?!!?” She gathered up enough courage to look me in the eyes and admitted that she had eaten 5 more servings throughout the day and only saved 1 serving for her husband. She then went on to tell me of the deepest desires of her heart… She hoped that he didn’t see it in the fridge because she very badly wanted that last piece for herself. I laughed so hard… but only because I have been there before…. really though, who hasn’t? That’s why dessert is so dangerous to have in my house.

I hope you enjoy the updated pictures and give this recipe a try. It only requires 6 ingredients and it is honestly better than any peach cobbler that I have ever had before. It has a perfect balance of flavors and is so simple yet so complex with the textures and flavors. I dont think I have ever had a more balanced dessert. It has a delicious buttery topping, a sweet center and ends with tarty peaches. I love topping it with homemade whipped cream. This peach cobbler is pretty amazing. You can see the updated pictures and read the previous post about this recipe below. Enjoy!

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

A couple weekends ago I was lucky enough to spend some time with my sisters. I don’t know about your family, but when we get together there is lots of laughter, lots of games, and great food! Don’t all family gatherings revolve around food? Somehow we started to talk about a great little cafe in Pasco called Andy’s Cafe, I think the official name is Andy’s Coffee Break. It’s an old cafe – where I am sure they have a lot of “regulars” coming because they know how great the food is.

Have you ever tried their peach cobbler? It is so delish and quite different from any peach cobbler I have eaten.  Well, about an hour into a very intense game of Settlers, {Yes.. I am a nerd. Deal with it.} my sisters and I started talking about Andy’s and how good their peach cobbler is.  That is when my sister Ashleigh decides to inform us that she can make it.  That all these years she has had a copycat recipe, if you will, of Andy’s Peach Cobbler. And the best part was how easy it was!  I’m still a little irritated that she kept this recipe all to herself and why she didn’t share it sooner.  In spite of her, I thought I would share it with all of you!

The Best Peach Cobbler Recipe {Andy’s Cafe Style}

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. While oven is preheating, place butter in pan and place in oven to melt.

Mix well and then add in milk. Batter should resemble pancake batter, so if 1 cup of milk doesn’t do it, slowly add more until it reaches the right consistency.

It’s a BIRTHDAY PRESENT Treasure Hunt!

Growing up we always opened our birthday presents after our birthday dinner, which included the traditional cake and ice cream. I have done the same thing with my kids—but lately I have noticed that isn’t what everybody does (uumm…where have I been?).

So out of curiosity– I have to know!  It is “very” important (well, for a 6 yr. old) so please don’t leave me hanging….

When your kids wake up on their birthday, do they get to open presents right away? or sometime during the day? or after dinner when it’s time for cake and ice cream?

With my little man’s birthday this time around I thought it would be fun (you should know where I’m going with this…) to make a treasure hunt out of finding his presents! I must be a genius because it was a HIT!  You will. not. regret .doing. this. for. your. birthday. kiddos! SAVE this Birthday Present Treasure Hunt NOW so you will have it when the time comes!

Look no further, you have found the best activity for your child! Use this Birthday Present Treasure Hunt and you won't be disappointed! #happythoughts #birthday #treasurehunts

I *may have* mentioned to him I was thinking of doing a treasure hunt for his birthday.  His instantly requested that I add the little fun “things” to it, like the curse cards I had done for this post. So I added some balloons to the printable for you to cut out and add to whichever clue. You can put them with the clue or next to it- whatever your heart desires.

 Here he is being a goof, following the balloon instructions! Little did he realize  that his clue was close by.This Birthday Present Treasure Hunt is the perfect activity to help add some fun to someone's birthday! #happythoughts #birthday #treasurehunt

We may all celebrate differently and at different times of the day, but that’s what makes this treasure hunt so perfect. Just do whataever works for you! I mean, how fun would that be to wake up to a treasure hunt to find your birthday presents?!  It was so fun to surprise him with HIS OWN special clue. He didn’t have to fight with his brother or sister. It was his…and he LOVED it!  He disappeared much faster than I expected! Oh how I love to see that smile on his face:)

Follow the clues to guide your child to their present! This Birthday Present Treasure Hunt is sure to be a hit! #happythoughts #birthday #treasurehunts

If you have multiple presents for your child you can hide them with any clue for your child to find during to the hunt. OR you can save them (however many you have) for the very end. I know–decisions, decisions! I decided to just wait until the end, where I hid his three presents in the pantry. With it all said and done, I think he would have liked to find presents throughout the hunt, too.

Have the birthday child find their presents using this Birthday Present Treasure Hunt! There is so much fun to be had! #happythoughts #birthday #treasurehunts
