Every summer, I look forward to peaches being in season. Peaches are great as a dessert, in a smoothie or by themselves. Since we only get to enjoy peaches one season a year in California, I try to eat as many as I can every summer. One of my favorite desserts each summer is my Mom’s peach cobbler. With my mother living hundreds of miles away, I haven’t gotten too many slices of peach cobbler in the last few summers. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own peach cobbler.
This peach cobbler recipe was good to let the kids assist with, since my kids ate all the extra peaches. It was a great way to sneak in their fruit servings for the day without them noticing. My children mixed the batter, and I did the work of cooking the peaches.
I found the how to make a peach cobbler on My Recipes by Southern Living. I love it already, because the instructions are quite simple. This peach cobbler recipe doesn’t require all the extra work of making and rolling dough. Making the peach cobbler requires just two tasks. Part one is cooking the peaches and part two is making a flour batter. After that, you simply put the batter in the pan and put the cooked peaches on top. After about 25 minutes in the oven, you have a delicious peach cobbler.
I made a few adjustments to this recipe. I added cinnamon and nutmeg to the batter and on top of the peach cobbler before putting it in the oven, to give it more traditional flavor. Also, I tweaked the serving size. My family can’t eat a 9×13 inch pan of peach cobbler, so I sized the recipe down to feed about 6 people. If you want to make it in a 9×13 pan, just double the ingredients and bake it for about 4o minutes.
What is one of your favorite summer desserts? Do you have a dessert that you make with peaches every summer?
