Summer-Time Favorites: Peach Cobbler

What goes better with a great backyard barbecue than a fantastic dessert?  This super easy peach cobbler is a winner! Served with vanilla ice cream, this recipe is sure to be a hit.

I cut this recipe down to serve two, however I will make this adjust the measurements to make a cobbler that will serve 8.

Ingredients for the batter:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 large egg, slightly beaten

Steps for the batter:

In a bowl, melt the butter in the microwave.  Be sure to cover the butter so that it doesn't splatter.

Pour the melted butter into a 9X13" cake pan.  Rotate pan to cover the bottom and sides with the butter.

In a separate medium sized bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

When the dry ingredients are well combined, add the egg and milk.

Mix well.

Pour the combined ingredients into the cake pan with the melted butter.

Ingredients for the filling:

  • 1 28 ounce can of sliced peaches in heavy syrup
  • reserve 1/2 cup of the syrup, discard the rest
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves

Steps for the filling:

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Pour the drained peaches (remember to reserve 1/2 cup of the syrup) into a large bowl.

Add the syrup, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.

Toss the peach mixture lightly.

Evenly pour the peach filling into the cake pan filled with batter.

Place the cake pan in the pre-heated oven, and bake for 45 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.

Serve warm.  Top cobbler with either vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
