Every summer for as long as I can remember, my mom has made this cobbler; whenever peach season hits, I find myself waiting to hear her magic words,"I think I'll make a cobbler tonight." It's the type of recipe that is easily thrown together last minute, using pantry staples to complement fresh peaches and a little vanilla ice cream. Soft, crispy, hot, and cold—this is one of the best desserts that will impress people without being a challenge to make.
5-Ingredient Peach Cobbler
3 cups of sliced peaches, skin off (~4 large ripe peaches)
1 ½ cups sugar (separated into 1 cup and a ½ cup)
1 stick of butter
¾ cup self-rising flour
¾ cup milk
Optional: vanilla ice cream for serving
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Toss sliced peaches in 1 cup of sugar. Set aside.
Place stick of butter in a deep baking dish (e.g., square pyrex or 9-inch pie pan) and place in preheating oven to melt.
Make batter with ½ cup of sugar, self-rising flour, and milk.
Remove baking dish with melted butter from the oven and pour in the batter. Do not stir.
Add the sugared peaches on top of the batter. Do not stir.
Bake for approximately 1 hour or until the batter has risen and is golden brown.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
Peaches a little hard/not fully ripe yet? Place them top down in a brown paper bag for up to 24 hours and watch how they get perfectly ripe!
Don't have self-rising flour on hand? Add 1½ tsp of baking powder and a ¼ tsp of salt to ¾ cup AP flour for this recipe.
