You can’t let summer end without trying this homemade peach cobbler recipe. Beautifully ripe, sweet summer peaches baked with a cakey topping make a delicious ending to any meal.
There is just something very comforting about homemade peach cobbler. But sometimes the thought of baking in the summer is overwhelming because there are so many other things we could be doing. So this recipe is a perfect summer dessert. It is super easy to make, yet it tastes like you slaved over it. No one needs to know the truth; we can keep that between us. What’s even better is that you can make this with any fruit that’s in season, so you can enjoy this cobbler all year long. Top it with whipped cream or your favorite ice cream to really take it up a notch.
I love summer fruits and this year I have been enjoying peaches most of all. We have some great local farmers that our grocery store supports, and their peaches have been spectacular. I am always happy when I can help a local business and get fresh produce at the same time. These peaches have been extra sweet and juicy so I could not resist the urge to make a decadent dessert with them before summer leaves us.
The easiest way to peel peaches:
Set a saucepan of water over medium high heat. When it starts to boil, carefully lower the peaches into the pan for about 20 seconds. Remove the peaches one at a time and place them in a bowl of ice water to quickly cool them off. The peel will now come right off.
How To Make Homemade Peach Cobbler
- Slice the peaches in 6 or 8 slices per peach and toss with lemon and ¾ cups of sugar in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the sugar melts and the peaches give off some liquid, about 5 minutes.
- Place cubes of butter in the bottom of a 9”x13” baking dish and put it in the oven. Set the oven to 350 degrees. The butter will melt as the oven heats up.
- In a medium bowl mix the flour, 1 cup of sugar, baking powder, milk, and vanilla.
- When the butter is melted, pour the batter over the butter, and spread evenly.
- Pour the peaches and juices over the batter.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the cake topping is golden brown.
