Southern Peach Cobbler -Sweet Peaches covered in butter, brown sugar and spices and topped with a simple moist cobbler batter and cinnamon sugar.
Southern Peach Cobbler
Southern Peach Cobbler is really a recipe that needs no introduction. It holds some nostalgia in our house too. At one of the first family holidays I attended with my soon-to-be husband, I was asked to bring a dessert. Being a college student living off Spaghetti-O’s with limited baking experience, I was obviously panicked. My dad suggested I make a cobbler, since it was simple but delicious. So I scoured the internet, searching for the perfect recipe. I couldn’t find one that I liked so I gathered a few, and took aspects from each that I liked and combined it to make my own recipe (Retrospectively, that was super risky for a nervous, novice baker!). Thankfully, it turned out wonderfully, and I still use that same makeshift, hand-scribbled Southern Peach Cobbler recipe to this day.
Southern Peach Cobbler tastes delicious by itself…
But I love to top mine with vanilla ice cream! Mmmmm
Southern Peach Cobbler Recipe
- 8-12 medium ripe peaches peeled and sliced (or 2-3 cans of sliced peaches)
- 1 stick of butter melted
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons flour
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoons vanilla
Prep your peaches first. Peel, pit, and slice fresh peaches, or drain your canned ones. Then combine everything except the butter in a bowl. Toss peaches in the bowl and toss to fully coat the peaches in the mixture.
Pour your melted butter in a 9"x13" baking sheet.
Dump your peach mixture over the butter. Bake for 10 minutes in a 425* oven.
While you're waiting for your peaches to cook a bit, mix up the ingredients for the cobbler and topping. Mix all the ingredients up in a medium bowl until everything is blended well.
In a separate small bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar with 1 T cinnamon. This will be the crunchy topping.
When your peaches are ready, take them out of the oven and pour your cobbler batter over the peaches. Then top with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Bake for 25-30 minutes in a 375° oven, until cobbler is cooked through. (Test using the old toothpick in the center trick)
Serve warm. Top with ice cream, if desired.
