On Saturday our air conditioning went out downstairs. My sweet friend asked me to help her and bake 2 Southern Peach Cobblers, now she asked me to do this last week and I simply adore this friend so I couldn’t say no! We had no idea the air conditioning would go out on Saturday. It was 118 degrees , so baking was last on my list of things to do. But I figured that it wouldn’t really matter that much if I went ahead and made the cobblers well I was wrong. I have never baked with sweat trickling down my back and even now at almost 11pm just sitting here typing I am still sweating this is not fun!! Ok enough whining on to cobbler!!! Delicious Peach Cobbler!! Now I love fresh peach cobbler but I can never get my peaches to cook completely so I start with canned peaches that are already processed which ensures a nice tender peach inside this amazing cobbler!! This recipe was so easy I baked one for us!! So I ended up baking 3 of these delicious Peach Cobblers!!
- Peach Filling
- 60 oz canned peaches (in light syrup)
- ½ C. B.Sugar
- ½ C. Sugar
- 4T Cornstarch (dissolved in ¼ c. water)
- ¼ t nutmeg
- 2 t cinnamon
- Crumble Topping:
- 2 C flour
- ½ C sugar
- ½ C brown sugar
- 2 t baking powder
- 1 t salt
- 12 T butter (1 ½ cube)
- ½ C boiling water
- 3 T Sugar
- 1 T Cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- In large sauce pan/pot put peaches, sugars, cinnamon and nutmeg bring to a boil. Dissolve cornstarch in water and add to boiling mixture stirring the whole time to keep from forming lumps. Stir until it thickens, once thick pour into a 9"x13" pan. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minuets.
- While peaches are baking, mix the topping. In large bowl put flour, sugars baking powder and salt and mix until blended. Cut butter in with a pastry blender or use your hands mix until mixture resembles course meal. Pour boiling water in and mix until blended.
- Remove peaches from oven, drop spoonfuls of topping over peaches until dough covers peaches. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar topping.
- Bake until topping is golden brown, about 30 minutes.
I hope you find this cobbler as yummy as I did!! I could eat the whole pan but I didn’t!!! This is an easy recipe and great to bring to your 4th of July BBQ!!
