Recipe: Peach Cobbler

Cooking / Eating In

Last Friday, I posted the Fun Fact that August is National Peach month.  I usually just eat peaches straight up – nothing like the nectar of a super-ripe farmer’s market peach dripping down your wrist.  I may have gotten a little overzealous with my peach purchases one market visit, and I was faced with the tasty dilemma of having too many ripe peaches to consume. Undeterred I decided to whip up some cobbler!  Would you like some cobbler of your own? Yeahhhh, I thought so.

You will need:

  •  6 ripe peaches
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 stick (8 tbsp) of unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 375F.  Grease an 8-9″ baking pan.

2. Remove the skin from the peaches by blanching them (drop peaches into boiling water for 2 minutes.  Remove immediately and plunge into waiting bowl of ice water.  Drain – peach skin should slip off easily)


3. Cut peaches into medium-sized pieces, toss with 1/3 cup of the sugar and place into pan.

4. Mix the remaining sugar with the flour, baking soda, and salt.  Add butter to dry mixture and combine.  Beat in the egg and vanilla by hand.

5. Drop topping mixture in large gloops (technical term) on top of peaches.  Bake for 50 minutes until topping is golden. Enjoy!

This was deeeeelicious – if the peaches you buy are super sweet, you can probably even cut down on the sugar a bit.  Try it out and let me know what you think!

What is your favorite summer fruit?
