Delicious Homemade Peach Cobbler

Peach cobbler is a tasty treat we like to make all year, and especially when we go camping. We bust out the heavy dutch oven and coals to create this masterpiece because it’s easy AND delicious. 

But really, why wait for a camping trip? This crumbly slice of heaven can easily be made at home any time you have that hankering!

Sometimes we even mix it up and add some raspberries, or make an apple or pear version. The tasty possibilities are endless.

How to Make Peach Cobbler

Let’s first discuss the peaches…

Peaches:

  • Fresh or canned peaches? Using fresh peaches in this recipe is an easy fix, you just need to warm the peaches with some sugar. If you use canned peaches instead then you can skip the “warming with sugar” step.
  • Do you peel peaches? You don’t necessarily need to peel the peaches because the skins will  soften as they bake. But if you prefer to have peeled peaches then you can easily do that with a paring knife.

PREP. Preheat the oven to 375. Pour the melted butter into a 9 x 13 baking dish.

BATTER. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the milk, and mix until combined. Pour the batter over the melted butter, but do not stir.

PEACHES. Add the peaches, sugar, and lemon juice to a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly. Pour the peach mixture over the batter, and again do not stir. Sprinkle with the cinnamon.

BAKE. Bake 40-45 minutes, until the cobbler is golden brown and the peach filling is bubbling. Serve warm.

This was simple and delicious. The key is to not mix the different layers as you are assembling it. Somehow as it bakes, they all blend together nicely to make a delicious cobbler. I used 4 fresh peaches, but I think it would also work with canned peaches. 

Dutch Oven Instructions

You can make this in the dutch oven in you normal kitchen oven! Some people prefer to use a dutch oven for the taste and baking method.

You can preheat the oven to 350 and place the dutch oven in the oven while the butter melts. Once the butter is done melting then you can remove the dutch oven from the oven.

Then spoon your batter into the dutch oven and top with peaches. Bake for around an hour until it’s golden brown!

Changing it Up

There are countless ways to change up this recipe and make it your own. Having said that, we also have a few ideas for you on how to change the recipe for even more flavor!

  • With biscuits: You can use pre-made biscuits or make your own biscuit dough. Either way you are going to put your peaches in the dish and then top it with the biscuit dough. As it bakes the biscuits will expand and cover the peaches.
  • Oatmeal: If you were to top the peaches with oatmeal you would make a peach crisp rather than a traditional cobbler. A cobbler has a heavy dough/cake-like topping, and a crisp has a light streusel-like topping.
  • Cake mix: The cake mix would substitute the flour mix that you would put on top of the peaches, you just need to add the butter!
  • Shortcut with bisquick? You would use bisquick the same way you would use the cake mix. It has the flour and other leavening ingredients already included.

No matter how you make it, we have a feeling you’ll love this warm, peachy treat!

Storing, Making Ahead Tips + Ice Cream

To STORE the peach cobbler you need to loosely cover it with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge. Since this is a cooked fruit dessert it will only last for about 2-3 days. Past that it will go bad, so be careful.

You can cut the peaches and let them sit in their goodness AHEAD OF TIME. You can also combine your dry ingredients ahead of time (without the butter) and leave that for later use. Then when it comes time to bake it you just have to add in your butter to the dry ingredients and bake it with your peaches.

You can REHEAT the cobbler in the oven or in the microwave. If you decide to reheat the cobbler in the oven you want to bake it at 350 for about 20 minutes until it’s warmed through. You can even cover the cobbler with a piece of foil if it is getting too brown. 

Serving with ice cream: Here are a few of our homemade recipes that go AMAZINGLY well with this recipe.
