Did someone just say PEACH COBBLER? Coming right up!

Ready to serve up a taste of southern hospitality? This PEACH COBBLER is ready in less than an hour and we know you’ll appreciate the simplicity of the dish with its stellar, seasonal flavours.

I’m a huge fan of an old fashioned cobbler because of its homespun appearance. If you’re the type to fear failure about making homemade desserts, end such silliness right here and now – this easy cobbler recipe is a foolproof dessert. It’s not meant to look perfect, and it certainly can’t be called fancy, but it’s a fresh and flavourful fruit dish that exudes down-home cooking.

Ingredients for Peach Cobbler

If you’re here solely because you’re a cobbler fan, try our APRICOT COBBLER too – it’s really, delicious!

Here are a few reasons why I love this recipe so much:

Freshly picked peaches for the cobbler

PEACHY KEEN!

Is there anything more delicious than fresh, locally grown peaches when they’re in season? This recipe brings out the best flavours from these summertime favourites. The peaches hold their shape when their natural sugars caramelize with the butter. Yum!

The topping placed onto the filled casserole dish

TOP IT OFF!

If the cake topper on the cobbler seems too dense, don’t worry – it eventually melts and spreads out evenly over the fruit as it bakes, even puffing up in the final minutes. It’s a lovely, sweet cap for this fruity concoction. The almonds give the dessert a fabulous nuttiness.

SUBSTITUTIONS

If peaches aren’t your thing, feel free to substitute using the same quantity (about 5 cups) of a fruit more to your liking. I recommend trying blueberries, apricots, blackberries, or even apple.

Golden topped Peach Cobbler

Don’t forget to serve your warm cobbler with whipped cream or well-paired ice creams like HOMEMADE VANILLA or our tasty STRAWBERRY-RHUBARB ICE CREAM. Either will add yet another nuance to this time-honoured and most beloved dessert. If you prefer to enjoy it as an afternoon treat, we suggest serving it with a favourite summer drink like our GRILLED LEMONADE.

Looking for that magical ending to your next family dinner or friendly get-together? Serving a PEACH COBBLER will do the trick!
