Peach season is in full force here in TN and I know just what to do with those juicy little nuggets of Heaven! This post comes about as a special request from my cousin, Bethany. She asked me for a good peach cobbler recipe and who am I to say no to my dear cousin?
First of all, I’m ashamed to admit I’ve never actually made a peach cobbler with fresh peaches. My memories of cobbler at home always included canned peaches, flour, sugar, and milk. Tasty, but my Southern ancestors would shake their head in shame. So my quest begins for the perfect Peach Cobbler. We’ll call this recipe trial #1. It was good, but not perfect, so I’ll try again in a few weeks to see what else I can do. Regardless, it’s a good basic cobbler recipe that’ll get the job done and make your tummy happy. Boyfriend LOVED it. He wanted to eat the whole batch of cobbler for dinner instead of grown up food.
One thing to note: I made a small cobbler since there were only two of us eating it. I made it in a 2 qt pan, so you’ll want to double the recipe if you want a larger one.
Okay, here we go! You’ll need:
– 4 cups fresh peaches, peeled and sliced – (4-6 peaches depending on size and how much you sample the product while slicing. *wink*)
– 3/4 cup brown sugar
– 1 teaspoon cinnamon
– 1 teaspoon vanilla
– 1 tablespoon flour
– 1 cup flour
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
– 3 tablespoons brown sugar
– 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
– 2/3 cup milk
– 1 tablespoon brown sugar, for sprinkling
Preheat the oven to 425°. Mix together peach filling ingredients and layer them in the bottom of a 2qt. casserole dish. (Or, you know, whatever pan you’re using.) In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients for the crust. Next, cut in the butter until the mixture becomes crumbly, then stir in the milk. Dollop the mixture by spoonfuls on top of the peaches. You can very gently spread it around to make it a bit more even if you want. Finish by sprinkling the top with the extra tablespoon of brown sugar. Pop it in the oven and bake until the crust is golden brown and the peaches are all bubbly and happy! (About 20-30 min) I’d recommend serving it with vanilla ice cream, I didn’t happen to have any on hand, but it didn’t stop me from eating some while it was still warm! Enjoy!
How do you like to eat your cobbler?
