  • 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
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1/2 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:
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

  2. 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:
  1. 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:
  1. 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.

  2. Lower the oven temperature to 375°F

  3. Bake the peach cobbler for about 30 minutes or until topping is golden.

To serve:
  1. Enjoy warm or cold with ice cream.
