Hey Ya'll, I may not be a southern belle, but this easy southern peach cobbler sure makes me talk like one! This recipe was adapted from the famous Paula Deen!
Nonetheless, this southern peach cobbler is filled with fresh yellow peaches and a self-rising flour. It is super easy and very large family friendly as it serves up to 15 people.
Did I mention, that the calorie count is not completely horrible if served alone. But who wants peach cobbler alone? Scoop that vanilla ice cream and homemade whipped cream right on top to make it amazing!
I have been a lover of all recipes Paula Deen since I have learned to cook and bake. He recipes are made with love and calories and tons of butter. A woman after my heart.
I never had to be on any diet until after my metabolism took a crap after 30. However, I believe in working out and eating in a calorie deficit. With this mindset, I can enjoy the desserts made by Paula without feeling guilty!
About 95% of these ingredients are found in your pantry. However, summer time is known for fresh peaches, so head to the store and get some for this peach cobbler. You won't regret it!
- Self-Rising flour: To make your own at home just combine all-purpose flour, baking soda and salt.
- Fresh yellow peaches: you can also use white peaches or frozen.
- Unsalted butter
- Granulated sugar
- Ground cinnamon: optional, but I think that is adds something extra to the cobbler!
First, it is important to wash and peel about 4 peaches and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the 3 quart baking dish and set aside.
Second, combine the peaches, 1 cup of water, and water in a large saucepan and mix well. Bring this mixture to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
Third, put butter in baking dish and place in oven to melt. Mix remaining 1 cup of granulated sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter. At this point, do not stir.
Lastly, spoon fruit on top and gently pour in the syrup. Sprinkle top with ground cinnamon. Bake for 30-45 minutes. Batter will rise and turn golden brown on top during baking. Serve with a scoop of ice cream or some whipped cream!
Variations and substitutions
- Make the recipe using a spiced or vanilla cake mix.
- Substitute using Bisquick or canned biscuits.
- Use frozen peaches or make individual peach cobblers in a ramiken.
Expert tips and tricks
- If using frozen peaches, be careful as they will release extra water making the syrup too watery.
- When mixing the cobbler batter, incorporate the milk slowly to ensure it stays smooth and doesn't become lumpy.
- Make sure to use a deep enough baking dish as the top likes to puff up when baking.
- The cobbler is done when it is a golden brown color and the syrup is bubbling up around the sides.
Over ripe fruit can cause soupy cobbler with a soggy top. Add a little bit of cornstarch to the filling to help to prevent this.
This southern peach cobbler is best served right away, but will stay fresh covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
e too much (which is never a problem in my house) you can freeze in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
