Best Peach Cobbler Ever Recipe

Ingredients:

For the Filling:

  • 6-8 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced (about 6 cups) or 4 cups canned peaches, drained
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch

For the Batter:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the Topping:

  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the Peaches:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced peaches, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Mix well to coat the peaches evenly. Set aside.
  3. Make the Batter:
    • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.
    • Add the milk and melted butter to the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined. The batter will be slightly lumpy, which is fine.
  4. Assemble the Cobbler:
    • Pour the batter into a 9×13-inch baking dish, spreading it out evenly.
    • Spoon the peach mixture (including the juices) over the batter. Do not stir; the batter will rise up around the peaches as it bakes.
  5. Add the Topping:
    • In a small bowl, mix the 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar with the 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.
    • Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over the peaches and batter.
  6. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the peach juices are bubbling. A toothpick inserted into the batter should come out clean.
  7. Cool and Serve:
    • Allow the cobbler to cool for at least 15 minutes before serving. This helps the filling to set.
    • Serve warm, optionally topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

Tips:

  • For a richer flavor, use a mix of white and yellow peaches.
  • If fresh peaches are out of season, you can use frozen peaches. Thaw and drain them well before using.
  • Adding a splash of bourbon or amaretto to the peach mixture can enhance the flavor.
