Dad's Homemade Peach Cobbler

Peach Cobbler fresh from the oven!
One of our favorite desserts is Dad's peach cobbler. This is a recipe that I use when I need a quick dessert. I always have the ingredients and it only takes a few minutes to mix it up. I modified it for gluten-free by making a change to the flour type, just in case you're looking for gluten-free. You can use fresh or frozen peaches, or even canned peaches work. I usually freeze enough Colorado peaches to take me through the seasons so I use those. This recipe makes about 6 servings.
Ingredients:
1/3 c butter, melted
1-2 cups peaches, peeled and sliced
1 c sugar (white or organic cane)
1 c all-purpose flour (or white rice flour for gluten-free)
1 tsp cinnamon (this is optional, my family loves cinnamon!)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 c milk (I use organic 2%)
Directions:
  • Melt butter and pour it into a baking pan, a 9x9 square glass pan works great. 
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder and salt (and cinnamon if using it). 
  • Add milk and stir with a fork or spatula.
  • Pour this batter mixture over the melted butter. 
  • If you're using frozen peaches, thaw them first and add some of the juice with them. Using a large spoon, place the peaches over the batter. 
  •  Bake 400F for 30-35 minutes. I usually test mine by sticking a toothpick in the middle of the cobbler and pulling it out. If it comes out clean, your cobbler is ready!
I let mine cool on a cooling rack. You can turn your pieces over and serve it warm with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream over the top. Dad's favorite was to pour a little half-n-half or cream over the cobbler. 

It's the best...really!!

Love and peace,
Tammi

  1. Made this today. It is delicious! I doubled it and baked in a 9 x 13 pan. I added a few extra peaches, used a little less sugar, and a quarter of my flour was whole wheat flour. I will make it again!
