Peach Cobbler

Peach Cobbler

Peach cobbler is a classic American dessert that is made with fresh or canned peaches, a sweet and buttery batter, and a crunchy topping. It is typically served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

To make peach cobbler, peaches are first peeled and sliced into wedges. The peaches are then tossed with sugar, flour, and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, and arranged in a baking dish. A batter made with flour, sugar, milk, and melted butter is then poured over the peaches, and a crumbly topping made with flour, sugar, and butter is sprinkled on top.

The cobbler is then baked in the oven until the peaches are tender and the topping is golden brown and crunchy. The dish is often served with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream to balance the sweetness of the peaches.

Peach cobbler is a popular dessert in the southern United States and is often served during the summer months when fresh peaches are in season. Variations of the classic recipe include adding nuts, using different fruits like blueberries or blackberries, or using a biscuit dough instead of a batter for the topping.

SERVINGS: 4

PREPARATION TIME: 50 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

For the filling:

  • 4 cups peeled and sliced peaches (about 4-5 peaches)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

For the topping:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup whole milk

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. To make the filling, combine the peaches, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, and butter in a large saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens and the peaches are tender, about 10 minutes.
  3. Pour the filling into an 8×8 inch (20×20 cm) baking dish.
  4. To make the topping, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in the melted butter, sugar, and milk until just combined.
  5. Spoon the topping evenly over the peaches.
  6. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  7. Let the cobbler cool for 10 minutes before serving.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS OR ADDITIONAL TIPS:

  • Serve the cobbler warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
