Although eating a ripened peach is truly one of life’s pleasures, I also like to serve them in a peach cobbler after a summer meal. Such comfort food! This recipe is a bit unique because the pastry goes on the bottom of the pan and is then topped with this beautiful fruit.

Of course everyone loves cobbler with vanilla ice cream.

You have to try it the way I have eaten it since I was a kid! Let a scoop of ice-cream melt in the bottom of your bowl and then serve the cobbler on top of it. The melted ice-cream serves as a kind of a rich sweet cream. Trust me, it’s YUMMO!

Ingredients

Batter Ingredients:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • To make the batter, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
  • Add the milk to the dry mixture and whisk to combine to make the batter.
  • Pour the melted butter into a 9 x 13-inch pan and move the pan around so that the bottom and sides of the pan are covered with butter.
  • Pour the batter over the butter. Do not stir them together.
  • To make the topping, combine the peaches, vanilla, lemon juice, cinnamon, and sugar in a large bowl and gently stir with a rubber spatula.

  • Bake for 1 hour or until golden brown.
  • Serve warm or cold, alone, or with whipped cream, or my favorite, vanilla ice cream.

    Hi Stephanie, They are definitely peaches and I will admit that I had to double check that they were. There was very little “fuzz” on them. I don’t know exactly what kind of peaches they were; I bought them at our local grocery market. I made the cobbler this last week and peeled the peaches and the cobbler was just as tasty. Thank you for being a great friend and “Hi” to your mom!
