How to Make This Recipe

  1. Gather All Ingredients:

    • Pour the peach mixture into a 2-quart baking dish.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  3. Prepare the Topping:
    • In another large bowl, combine the flour, ¼ cup white sugar, ¼ cup brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.

    • Drop spoonfuls of the topping over the peaches.

Variations:

  • Nutty Twist: Add some chopped pecans or almonds to the topping mixture for a crunchy texture.
  • Spiced Up: Add a pinch of ground ginger or cloves to the peach mixture for an extra layer of flavor.

Equipment:

  • Large bowl
  • 2-quart baking dish
  • Pastry blender or fingertips
  • Small bowl
  • Oven

Storage:

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the oven or microwave until warmed through.

What to Serve with This Recipe:

This peach cobbler is best served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. It’s also delicious with a drizzle of caramel sauce.

Tips:

  • Use ripe, juicy peaches for the best flavor and texture.
  • If you don’t have fresh peaches, you can use frozen peaches. Thaw and drain them before using.
  • Make sure the butter is well-chilled for the topping to get the perfect crumbly texture.

FAQ:

Can I use canned peaches?

Yes, but make sure to drain them well and reduce the sugar slightly since canned peaches are usually sweetened.

Can I make this cobbler ahead of time?

Yes, you can prepare the peach filling and topping separately, then assemble and bake just before serving.
