Cobblers are an American deep-dish fruit dessert with a thick crust and a fruit filling. April 13th is National Peach Cobbler Day and I thought I’d get this recipe out in time for you guys to gather your ingredients! A cobbler is one of the simplest desserts you can make. You can use all types of fruit for it, but peach cobbler is my favorite and probably the most popular. It’s fantastic with fresh peaches, but if they are not in season, canned peaches are fabulous as well.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! Don’t forget to leave me a comment below.
- ½ cup unsalted butter (Equivalent to 8 tablespoons or 1 regular stick)
- 2 (15 oz.) cans sliced peaches or 4 fresh peaches peeled and sliced. If using canned peaches, drain all of the liquid first.
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 to 1 ½ teaspoons lemon juice (Start with 1 tsp then add an additional ½ tsp depending on personal taste.)
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup room temperature milk
- 1 large egg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Melt butter in the oven in a baking dish
Place drained peaches in a bowl and add granulated lemon juice, vanilla extract, nutmeg, cinnamon, sugar, and brown sugar and mix well. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt, then mix well.
Add milk and egg to the flour mixture and mix well with a whisk.
Pour the batter over the melted butter in the baking dish – DO NOT STIR
Spoon the peaches into the baking dish – DO NOT STIR
Bake for 45 to 60 minutes until cobbler is golden brown and bubbly.
Enjoy with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!
