What could be a more perfect ending to a summertime meal than easy peach cobbler? Savor the flavors of summer with sliced fresh peaches cooking away with butter and spices. The topping can made from pantry ingredients you have on hand and peaches can easily be substituted with any fruit you have depending on the time of year. The tang of the lemon juice paired with the sweetness of the peaches is perfectly balanced with the crisp topping. Want to make dessert even better? A dollop of fresh whipped cream or cold vanilla ice cream truly makes it the perfect way to end a summer night.

How to Make It

Step 1

Melt butter in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish.

Step 2

Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt; add milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter over butter (do not stir).

Step 3

Bring remaining 1 cup sugar, peach slices, and lemon juice to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly; pour over batter (do not stir). Sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.

Step 4

Bake at 375° for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve cobbler warm or cool.

Chef's Notes

This dessert is perfect for entertaining guests on a summer night or even during the middle of the day at a cookout. Fresh peaches make this dish absolutely delicious. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and enjoy.

Thank you for this variation. It sounds great. One question, how much zest and what do I add the zest to?

I used these small adjustments and also added a little cayenne pepper to the peaches for a southwestern twist. Yum!

To make the crust a little thicker I used 3/4cup of Milk and 1/4cup of buttermilk to make the crust a little thicker. It was AWESOME!!! Give it a try. 🤗

Anna, I just pulled your cobbler out of the oven. IT'S FABULOUS! I cut the sugar (Splenda) in half after reading various other posts but next time I'll add the full amount. Kudos to your great grandmother, grandmother and mother!
