Peach Cobbler Recipe: Easy and Great Tasting Peach Cobbler, with Step by Step Photos

Easy Peach Cobbler

PDF print version

Peaches are not only great fresh; they are also fantastic in cooking and desserts, too!  Peach cobblers and crisps are a couple of my favorite summer desserts! They are similar; both are shallow pans of fruit and some flour or grain thickener, with a sweetener. Some cobblers are made with the flour on top of the raw seasoned fruit and baked; while others mix the thickener and the sweetener with the fruit and heating it and then put the flour topping on last.  Crisp are usually uniform mixes of fruit and grains, like oats.  The recipe below is for a REALLY easy peach cobbler, that tastes great!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar or Stevia (in a prepared form like Truvia, it measures same as sugar; if you use another form, you'll need do your own conversion) - or Splenda, if you prefer, (sucralose)
  • 1 cup all purpose flour (white, mixed grain or whole wheat works fine)
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk (low-fat or non-fat are fine)
  • 3 cups sliced fresh peaches, peeled or skins left on
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Options:

You can add 1/2 cup chopped pecans - they taste GREAT in a peach cobble.

You can also add other fruits: blueberries and blackberries are particularly good in combinations with peaches. Just add 1 cup of either to this recipe in step 6.

Directions

Step 1 - Preheat the oven and prepare the peaches

Preheat oven to 350°F (175 C).  Wash, peel and slice the peaches. You can slice them thin or thick as you prefer! Note: you can dunk the peaches in boiling water for 45 seconds, then into ice water, and the skins will usually slide right off.

Step 2 - Melt the butter

Melt the stick of butter in a medium saute pan over medium-high heat until it bubbles and turns golden-brown. Be careful: it will burn quickly and easily!

 

 

 

 

Step 3 - Add the butter to a baking dish

Pour the butter into an 8-inch square baking dish.

 

 

Step 4 -  Mix the dry ingredients and the milk

In a medium bowl, stir together the 1 cup sugar (or Stevia (in a prepared form like Truvia, it measures same as sugar; if you use another form, you'll need do your own conversion) - or Splenda, if you prefer, , or blend), the 1 cup flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 3/4 cup milk.

 

 

 

Step 5 - Add the batter to the baking dish

Pour the batter on top of the melted butter. Do not stir.

Note: the photo shows a dark brown batter because,  instead of 1 cup sugar, I used 1/2 cup Stevia (in a prepared form like Truvia, it measures same as sugar; if you use another form, you'll need do your own conversion) - or Splenda, if you prefer, and 1/2 cup brown sugar; just to cut the calories some.

 

 

 

 

  

Step 6 - Add the peaches

Without mixing, arrange the peaches evenly on top of the batter.

 

 

 

 

Step 7 - Add the brown sugar

Evenly sprinkle the brown sugar over the cobbler.

 

  

 

 

Step 8 - Bake the cobbler

Bake the cobbler for 40 to 45 minutes at 350 F (175 C), until the top turns golden brown.

The batter will migrate from the bottom of the pan to cover the peach slices partially.

 

 

 

 

  

 

Enjoy!

 

Serve warm or at room temperature; preferably with peach ice cream. Yield 6 to 8 servings.

 

 

 

Useful conversions

 

Measurements:

1. About 2 medium to large peaches = 1 cup sliced peaches.

2. About 4 medium peaches = 1 cup pureed peach.

Substitutions:

In most recipes, frozen or canned peaches can be substituted for fresh peaches. The frozen and canned peaches have already been sweetened; therefore, the amount of sugar called for in a recipe will have to be adjusted. Also, the peaches should usually be drained before using.

I had never made it before but tried it today and it was so delicious, especially with the fresh peaches. Also, I had never made peach jam before but did earlier in the week. Unfortunately, it did not set correctly. Fortunately more me, I Googled that topic and was directed right back to your site. I followed your directions on how to fix the jam and I was able to save all three quarts that I had made. It, too, tastes wonderful. Thanks, again."
