The freshest peaches arrived at my local grocery store this week and I couldn’t resist them. I knew they’d be perfect in a delicious cobbler, so I whipped up a big cake pan full of my Easy Peach Cobbler recipe. This is such a simple way to make a cobbler and it always turns out so delicious.
I start by cutting up about five peaches into slices. I need four cups and usually five peaches gives me close to that. For good measure, I cut up an extra to snack on.
Then I melt some butter in a cake dish and set it aside.
In a large bowl, I combine some flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. It helps if you have a mixer girl as cute as mine.
Then I add in some milk. Just enough to wet the ingredients. And I pour it over the melted butter.
In a pan, I bring the peaches to a boil with some sugar, lemon juice, and a little cinnamon.
Then I pour the mixture right on top of the batter. No stirring necessary once the peaches are in there. It’s supposed to look like a mess!
The cobbler gets baked in a 375F degree oven for about 45 minutes. It’s ready once the batter is a golden brown and the peaches are tender.
This cobbler is wonderful either cold or warm, but I think it’s positively divine when it’s served while still warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream over the top. It’s the most perfect summer treat.
