Looking for the perfect dessert to feed a crowd?
While pies are a classic dessert, don’t overlook a tasty cobbler either, which can be a beautiful ending to any meal and is typically a lot easier to pull together than a pie because you don’t have to make a top and bottom crust. Cobbler is a no-fuss dessert that’s sweet and satisfying.
We love this Georgia peach cobbler recipe, which uses a handful of ingredients and has a small number of steps. Create the illusion that this delicious dessert took all day and impress your guests. It’ll be our little secret that it was actually a pretty simple recipe to create.
While the recipe calls for fresh peaches, you can substitute frozen peach slices which will do in a pinch and make the prep time even faster. The recipe is versatile in its presentation as well, because it can be served warm or cold, topped a la mode with ice cream, given a simple whipped cream topping, or served without anything additional.
A cobbler also travels well, so it’s a great addition to a potluck supper, a picnic, or a neighborhood barbeque, too.
Though there are many peach cobbler recipes, this one comes from 12 Tomatoes, a site which offers many easily prepared recipe options.
For the peach cobbler, you’ll need the following ingredients:
6-8 fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
⅛ teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Juice from ½ lemon
The rest comes together so easily, you’ll want to make this cobbler again and again.
Begin by preheating the oven to 375°F and peeling and slicing the peaches. Melt the butter and pour it into the center of a 9×13-inch baking dish. Do not spread the butter around the pan.
Next, in a separate bowl, combine the flour, white sugar, salt, and baking powder. Slowly pour in the milk and add the vanilla extract, then stir to combine. Pour this batter over the butter in the pan, but do not stir it.
Next, add the brown sugar, peach slices, and lemon juice to a saucepan over high heat, stirring frequently until the sugar is melted and the peaches release juice. This mixture is poured over the top of the batter. Again, don’t stir it!
Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes until the cobbler is a golden color.
Serve either warm out of the oven or let it cool and enjoy it later. This dessert can be topped with whipped cream or ice cream.
