Quick and Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe
Quick and easy peach cobbler. The perfect recipe to stretch out those summer days a little bit longer!
I've never spent much time thinking about cobbler. I'm much more of a cookie or cake gal. But today's peach cobbler recipe rekindled (or maybe first-time-kindled?) a love for this beloved summer dessert. I fell head over heels in love with it at first bite for the following reasons:
A) The sugar and the butter and the batter meet around this edges and bake into ribbons of golden, crispy goodness. It's an amazing texture addition to the overall softness of the dessert.
B) It's nice to eat something that is NOT as supremely rich as a slice of chocolate cake every once in awhile.
C) Two words: VANILLA. ICE CREAM. (fine. three words. whatever.)
I also love the simplicity of this recipe. You know you can always count on me for a recipe with as few steps as possible, and this one really delivers. Totally from scratch, but it's really made up of just a few simple ingredients + canned peaches!
Can you use fresh peaches? Absolutely! Just make sure they are super ripe, okay? You want them to already be a little soft, because this cobber doesn't bake for all that long, only about 35 minutes.
But I used canned peaches, because… duh, it's me. Tired, hands-in-too-many-pots, spent-nap-time-reading-instead-of-being-productive me. Plus, we just don't get our hands on all that many fresh peaches around here. ????
Here's how it all goes down:
???? You're going to start by melting butter in the 9×13 baking dish you'll be baking the cobbler in. I nuked mine.
???? Then you'll make a simple batter with flour, sugar, milk, etc.
???? Then you'll get the peaches all syrupy by mixing them with sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Yum!
???? Finally: pour the batter into the melted butter, and layer the peaches over the batter. Don't stir anything!
???? Bake. Eat. Repeat.
Is your mouth watering yet?? Personally, I'm feeling so bummed right now that we ate this whole dish already.
Good news for you though– you can grab this recipe over on Keat's Eats right now, and it only takes 35 minutes to bake! Woot! And don't you love recipes you don't have to cool before serving? Just dig right in as soon as you pull it out of the oven and add a big, fat scoop of vanilla bean to go with it. Heaven.
