Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe
Making a cobbler is super easy. In fact, even I can do it.
What exactly is a cobbler, you ask. Good question. According to one of my favorite research websites, Wikipedia, the definition is:
“…a variety of dishes, particularly in the United States and United Kingdom, consisting of a fruit or savoury filling poured into a large baking dish and covered with a batter, biscuit, or pie crust before being baked. Some cobbler recipes, especially in the South, resemble a thick-crusted, deep-dish pie with both top and bottom crust.”
How To Make Peach Cobbler
Most cobblers that I am used to only require three ingredients for the crust – self-rising flour, sugar, and either milk or buttermilk. For the filling, you can simply use a can of pie filling. Oh, and you need a stick of butter.
I recently made a Peach Cobbler using a can of peaches in natural juices. I added a little sugar and a couple of spices and popped it in the oven.
Easy Peach Cobbler
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 - 29 oz. can peaches in juice
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place butter in 9-in square baking dish and place in oven to melt.
- Meanwhile, combine flour, sugar, and buttermilk and mix well. Set aside.
- Combine peaches, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla.
- Remove melted butter from oven and spoon flour mixture into pan. Spoon peaches on top of flour mixture. (Discard excess peach juice.)
- Bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown on top.
- Allow to cool for approximately 30 minutes before serving.
The crust has a spongy cake-like texture and is delicious. It’s fantastic served with some vanilla ice cream.
