This Peach Cobbler recipe has been on my summer blog post list to share with you for several years now! Growing up, peach cobbler was always one of my favorite desserts that my mom would make. Sweet, warm cobbler combined with fresh peaches and topped with cold vanilla ice cream is a taste that I long for each summer. I will make this recipe for Jay, and I, and it’s literally gone the next day! It’s so addicting and even more importantly, it’s quick and easy to make.
Although I’m partial to this recipe, because like I said, peach cobbler has been a long time favorite of mine. I still truly believe anyone will love this recipe. The cobbler base can be used with other fruits and flavors and is basically my favorite part of the recipe. However, I highly recommend serving this with vanilla ice cream. It just completes the entire experience altogether.
Over the years, I have adapted this recipe from my mom’s personal recipe and my favorite Southern Living peach cobbler recipe. My mom uses Bisquick in her recipe and that is equally as delicious and super special. Just swap out the flour for Bisquick and you are good to go! There are so many recipes out there and to be honest, they are all very similar. A cup of flour, a cup of sugar and a cup of milk, makes a darn great cobbler. I prefer to keep my recipe simple and not add too many other flavors.
I think it’s also fair to mention that you can add as many peaches as you would like. The more the merrier, as my husband would say. Fresh, juicy, ripe peaches really serve this recipe best. However, if those aren’t available or I just don’t feel like peelin’ and cuttin’, I will just go grab a bag of frozen peaches from the store. While they aren’t as wonderful as the freshest peaches of the summer, they sure aren’t bad either!
With that clip of storytime out of the way, here is my favorite peach cobbler recipe!
1/2 cup butter, melted
4 cups sliced peaches (fresh or frozen)
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
2 tablespoons Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract, divided
1 cup self-rising flour (or Bisquick)
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Add butter to an 11.5in x 8in baking dish and place in oven to melt.
Once the butter is fully melted, pour the flour mixture into the pan, directly over the melted butter. Spoon peaches on top. There is no need to mix them in, they do better without mixing!
Bake on 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes, depending on the strength of your oven. Mine usually only takes about 45 min.
I should note my inclusion of the Nielsen Massey Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract, in this recipe. It dawned on me a few weeks ago that my love for vanilla extract is mostly based on my love for this ingredient. I’m fully convinced that other vanilla extracts will be as delicious as this one. So if you aren’t using this one, which is totally ok, you might want to tone down the vanilla a bit. I’m not 100% sure what regular vanilla extract will taste like, but I could not recommend this one more. I know that it is expensive, but I buy the large bottle and always use every drop! I have purchased probably at least 4-5 bottles of this and I’m never disappointed.
