Peach Cobbler


While trying to figure out what to make from all of my peaches and plums, Kristen from Dine and Dish suggested a Peach Cobbler from her site so I decided to take her up on it. It was really easy to make aside from peeling peaches which I hate to do. So after what seemed like hours of peeling peaches the rest of the dish was a relief. And it was very moist and flavorful and had a slight nutty flavor to the batter. So thanks for the great recipe Kristen I used up almost all of my peaches.

Peach Cobbler

Filling -
4 cups of ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
2 tablespoons of sugar
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Batter -
6 tablespoons of butter, cut into pieces
1 1/4 cups of AP Flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/8 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 cup of buttermilk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350. Combine the 3 ingredients in the filling and set aside. In an 8 inch baking dish place the butter pieces and place in the oven until the butter melts. While it is melting combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. In another bowl mix together the buttermilk and vanilla extract. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and mix until everything is moistened. Remove the pan from the oven and spoon the batter over the butter spreading evenly but not stiring. Spoon the filling over the top and gently press in the peaches. Bake for 35-40 minutes and then sprinkle with brown sugar and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes or until the crust is golden.

  4. Oh dang - I should have shared this tip on my site too, and you may already know it.
    If you have ripe peaches, they are a cinch to peel.
    What you need to do is put on a pot of boiling water. Once the water has boiled, put a peach in it 1-2 at a time and keep it in there for 30 seconds to a minute. Some people say less time, but that never works for me.
    Anyway, remove the peach and once you are able to hold it, peel it and the peeling will seriously slip right off. Easy peasy! If your peaches aren't ripe, it doesn't work as well, but otherwise, it makes peeling peaches a cinch of a task!
    Glad you liked the cobbler!
