easy peach cobbler
I sure do like peach cobbler. It’s something my husband says often as a hint that I should make it. Patience. Getting great peaches and allowing them to ripen is the key. The peaches tend to be green when we buy them. Allowing them to sit for a few days helps make this easy peach cobbler.
If you do not have fresh peaches, you can use canned, just just about 1/3 of the juice from the can. And get the can that is in it’s own juices. You will be adding enough sugar to this recipe.
Serve with a little ice cream and you’ve got peaches and cream!
You can serve dinner and have the cobbler cooking in the oven while you are eating. A great dish we like to eat warm (or warmed up).
Making peach cobbler
5-6 fresh peaches – peeled, pitted and sliced into wedges
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
6 tablespoons cut into small cubes
pinch of cinnamon
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
Take your peaches and peel, pit and slice them. Slices can be how you slice an apple. Or open cans and drain.
In a large bowl, mix 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Add in peaches and toss them in the bowl to coat.
Take an 8×8 pan and butter the bottom and sides
Place peaches into your greased pan. You can be fancy and lay in a pattern or get them all in there covering the bottom.
Pour the juices from the bowl over the peaches.
making the cobbler
In a medium size bowl, combine flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder and cinnamon. Add the butter and mix with a fork until the butter is incorporated and looks like crumbs.
Pour crumb mix over peaches and spread out evenly over the peaches.
Place into the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
Allow to cool and serve with your favorite ice cream.
Tips for making cobbler
- If you don’t have fresh peaches, you can use canned (in own juice or light syrup)
- The butter for the topping does not have to be hard, it can be soft. It will be easier to mix
- Make early in the morning as the oven temp is pretty high
- Allow the cobbler to cool and set before eating
- Use the same bowl for the peaches and then the dry mix (rinse and wipe down), less dishes
