How to Make Old-Fashioned Peach Cobbler Recipe:
This cobbler is unbelievably easy to make. There are four important steps:
- You need to slice the peaches and season with sugar and a small amount of lemon juice. I like to slice the peach into medium-sized pieces (about 1 cm). That way the sliced peaches will hold texture better even after baking.
- You need to cook the sliced peaches in the oven for 10 minutes to soften them up a bit.
- Make the batter.
- Lastly, it’s time to cook the peach and batter together in the oven for 30 minutes.
Southern Peach Cobbler Recipe
- 6 large yellow peaches (chopped, about 7 cups)
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- ¼ cup white sugar
For Topping (or Batter)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup unsalted butter (melted)
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tbsp warm milk
To cook Peaches:
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Cut the peach into small pieces but not too thin (about 1 cm). Transfer into a large bowl and season with sugar and lemon juice. Place the peach mixture into a large baking dish and cook for 10 minutes.
To make Batter:
- In a medium mixing bowl, stir together all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Blend in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal, add milk until combined.
To Cook the Cobbler:
- Remove peaches from the oven. Use a cookie dough spoon or regular spoon to scoop out a small amount of batter to spread over the peaches. Perfection is not needed during this process because the topping will spread as it bakes.
- Lower the oven temperature to 375°F
- Bake the peach cobbler for about 30 minutes or until topping is golden.
- Enjoy warm or cold with ice cream.
