As far as desserts are concerned, there is nothing better than fresh and Easy Peach Cobbler. Top it with some ice cream and you can’t help but moan when you bite into it.
This is by far my favorite Homemade Peach Cobbler recipe. It’s been keeping my family happy for years.
With fall on the horizon, fresh peaches and other fruits are making their appearance in our town. Our community did a fundraiser and had a bunch of cases of peaches sent in to sell.
When I heard there were going to be fresh peaches, I almost did a backflip! We don’t usually get really good peaches in our grocery store, so when they are brought to town it’s something to get excited about.
This recipe calls for fresh peaches. You could certainly use frozen or canned peaches if that is all you have available, but I promise it won’t be as tasty. Making it with frozen peaches is still going to be a lot better than not making it at all!
No matter what you use you will love this Easy Homemade Peach Cobbler.
How to Blanch Peaches
In case you have never blanched peaches, I thought I better give you some instructions in case you are just starting out.
I used to freak out just hearing the word “blanching.” I figured it was some long and drawn process, but it is really easy.
First get out a big pot and boil some water. I like to cut an “X” on the bottom of the peach, just enough to break the skin. Then put your peaches in the boiling water. Let them boil for 1 – 2 minutes.
After you are done boiling, drop the peaches in a large bowl filled with ice water. I let them sit for around 45 seconds to a minute then I start pealing the skins off. You will be surprised by how easy the skin just falls off.
You can also use this method to blanch other fruits and vegetables.
I hope your family falls in love with this Southern peach cobbler like ours has. It’s a great go to recipe for family functions and events too. Once it’s gone you will always be wanting more! Happy Baking!
Can you make peach cobbler without peeling the peaches?
Actually, you can leave on the skins if you prefer. While cobbler traditionally uses peeled peaches, once you cook them into the cobbler the skin does soften if they are unpeeled.
What’s the difference between crisp and cobbler?
While both are fruit desserts, a crisp has a crisp and crunchy layer on top, usually using oats, butter and brown sugar. A cobbler, on the other hand, usually has a dropped biscuit topping or pie crust topping.
How to Serve Peach Cobbler:
The best way to serve it is a bit warm – either straight from the oven after it’s baked or else heat it up again a bit before serving.
The best toppings for peach cobbler, in my opinion, are either fresh whipped cream or a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. A cinnamon ice cream tastes good with it too!
