Peach Cobbler

peach cobbler


I feel like peach cobbler is the signature summertime dessert for the southern part of America.  Especially if you have fresh peaches….that helps a little.  I try to make peach cobbler when I can pick up some fresh peaches at the farmer’s market.

The riper the peaches the better—make sure to let them sit out a few days before you decide to make the cobbler.  I would also recommend choosing a smaller, square pan to bake the cobbler in, so it doesn’t burn easily.  If you haven’t cut up peaches before, leave PLENTY of time—it’s one of the most frustrating tasks ever!!  Use a paring knife and cut around the pit.  If the peaches are ripe enough, the fuzzy skin should be easy to peel off.

YIELD: 4-6 servings

TIME: 1 hour 30 minutes

1 stick butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
pinch of salt
3/4 cup milk
3 cups peeled and sliced fresh peaches
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup packed brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 F and melt the butter in a square baking dish in the oven until browned.  In a medium bowl, stir sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, and milk together.  Pour mixture over the butter, but do not stir.  Arrange the peaches evenly on top of the batter and sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar.  Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the top is golden brown.  Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

Hope y’all enjoy!

xoxo, Sara
