With just a few ingredients and 4 steps, this cobbler will be your easiest dessert ever to make.
It’s sooooo delicious!
This cobbler creates its own crust as the batter magically rises to the top. Take it out of the oven, sprinkle a little cinnamon and sugar on top and serve it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. Life just doesn’t get any better!!
There are a lot of desserts that I love, but this one is truly one of my favorites. Peach Cobbler especially goes well with Sunday Dinner. Maybe it’s just another one of those Southern Things or the memories I have of my Grandmother’s Sunday fruit cobblers. She served cobbler every Sunday. A bowl of warm peach cobbler after a Sunday Dinner is comfort food at its best. In fact, just thinking about it makes me feel one of those Sunday afternoon naps coming on.
The good thing about this recipe is that you don’t have to wait for fresh peaches to come in season to enjoy this cobbler. We will be using canned peaches and it will taste out of this world. I promise! Note: 🍑 If you can get your hands on some fresh peaches, Here’s how you do it. Place 4 cups of sliced fresh peaches in a medium sauce pan. Add 1 cup white sugar, 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice and 3/4 cup water. Bring it to a boil. Cool. Spoon peaches and all the juice over the batter. Don’t stir. I’ll put the recipe for the fresh peaches in the recipe note.
Another thing I like about this recipe is that most of the time I have the ingredients on hand, and I don’t have to make a quick run to the store. You can easily substitute the peach slices for other fruits such as blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, apples or cherries.
This was the first time that I made this cobbler in an iron skillet and it turn out better than ever. So I defiantly recommend using an iron skillet.
- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter
- 1 ¼ cups granulated sugar, plus 2 Tablespoons, divided
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 (29-ounce) can sliced peaches in heavy syrup, undrained
- ½ cup water
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- Extra granulated sugar and cinnamon, for topping
- Vanilla ice cream (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Melt butter in 13 x 9-inch baking dish or a 10 inch round iron skillet.
- Combine flour, 1 ¼ cup sugar; slowly whisk in milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter over melted butter. (DO NOT STIR).
- Mix ½ cup water and the remaining 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar with the canned peaches and syrup/ juice from the canned peaches. Place peaches and juice over the batter. Sprinkle ¼ cinnamon over top of peaches, if desired. (DO NOT STIR). The batter will rise to the top.
- Bake in preheated oven for about 35 to 40 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned and cobbler is hot and bubbly.
- Remove from oven and sprinkle with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Serve with vanilla Ice or freshly whipped cream, if desired.
