Peach Cobbler Ingredients

You will need:

PEACH FILLING

  • 10 cups peaches, sliced into thin wedges
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cornstarch

CRUST TOPPING

  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder

INGREDIENT SUBSTITUTIONS FOR PEACH COBBLER

PEACHES: Cobbler can be made with many types of fruit filling. In this recipe you could swap out the peaches for many other fruits. Some of the most common are apples, strawberries, raspberries, cherries, rhubarb, or blackberries. You could also make a mixed berry cobbler and use more than one type of berry.

You can also opt to use canned or frozen fruit instead of fresh. This will make the prep quicker, as you don’t have to peel or slice your fruit. If you are using frozen peaches, be sure to let them thaw completely. If using canned, be sure to drain them.

TOPPING: A popular way to simplify the crust topping in a cobbler recipe is to use cake mix as an alternative to making your own crust topping. It doesn’t taste quite as delicious, but for the ease it offers, it can be worth it. I recommend using a vanilla cake mix to do this.

Another popular alternative is to use Bisquick as the base for your crust topping. The Bisquick will still need to be mixed with sugar, butter, and milk or hot water.

HOW TO MAKE PEACH COBBLER

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Spray a 9×13 deep sided baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.

STEP TWO: In a large bowl, combine the peaches, lemon juice, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice, vanilla extract, and cornstarch. Stir well to coat all peaches.

STEP THREE: Pour peach mixture into the bottom of your greased 9×13 baking dish. Place in the oven to bake the peaches for about 10 minutes while you make the crust and cinnamon sugar topping.

STEP FOUR: In a separate medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and grated butter. Stir to combine. Pour hot water into a bowl and mix until a dough mixture forms.

STEP FIVE: In a separate small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon. Stir well.

STEP SIX: Remove your peaches from the oven and drop spoonfuls of the crust topping mixture on top of the peaches. Use a spoon or spatula to spread out the crust topping mixture so it’s evenly covering the peaches. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar topping evenly over the top of the crust topping.

STEP SEVEN: Place back in the oven and let cook for 25-39 minutes, or until the crust topping is browned and the peach juices are bubbling up on the sides of the cobbler.

STEP EIGHT: Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

STORING THIS RECIPE

Leftover cobbler can be stored in the refrigerator, if you plan to eat it up quickly in the days following. Cooked fruit desserts like peach cobbler will only last in the fridge for about 2-3 days. Be sure to place foil or a lid over your pan before placing it in the fridge.

In the freezer

Leftover cobbler that has been cooked can also be frozen to increase the shelf life. It will keep in the freezer for approximately 6 to 8 months. Reheat the frozen cobbler in the oven using baking directions provided.

Likewise, you can easily store unbaked cobbler in the freezer, which makes for easy enjoyment later on. Uncooked frozen cobbler will last for 2 to 4 months. When ready to bake, add 20 minutes to the bake time. You can bake it frozen, no need to thaw.
