Peach Cobbler

This is the only cobbler I’ve ever made, and it’s so simple and tasty that I serve it after dinner pretty regularly. :) This recipe makes five normal servings or four generous ones.

First, preheat your oven to 350°F. Then cream together ½ cup of softened butter with 1 cup of sugar. You don’t want to use margarine in place of butter because it changes the texture/consistency of the cobbler. Mix in one cup of flour and one cup of milk. Add 1tsp vanilla extract.

Pour the batter into a greased baking dish; I like using my medium size glass dish which measures 7.5×11″ because it holds just the right amount of peaches and the batter bakes evenly.

Once your batter is in the dish, place peaches on top with a slotted spoon. You want some juice but not so much as to allow puddling (I know, that’s not a word, lol). I use 1 ½ cans of light (sugar in juice, not sucralose or high fructose corn syrup) sliced peaches by DelMonte. I buy three 15oz cans and then use half, which means I can make two cobblers as long as I refrigerate the leftover peaches and make the second cobbler within about a week.

Finish off by sprinkling the peaches with cinnamon. Bake for 30-45 minutes (depending on size of baking dish) or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.

Enjoy warm, with or without vanilla ice cream!

  1. Yum! I love peaches too! I use a cobbler recipe that cooks the peaches slightly with a few more spices (def allspice and a bit of nutmeg) and maybe some lemon juice (been a while since I made it), and it’s topped with drop biscuits. I think the recipe is from the original Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. My mom’s made it since we were little. I love it!!

    1. Mmm, that sounds yummy! Isn’t it interesting how lemon juice is in so many recipes? It was in blueberry pancakes I made recently and I’ve used it when sautéing mushrooms, too!
