Peaches are in season and they have been so good this summer! I’ve been buying them weekly and incorporating them into everything. My husband has been asking me to make peach cobbler and after a failed attempt at a vegan version (I’m not sure what went wrong), I decided to go ahead and make a traditional recipe. I’m so glad I did. It was delicious and the perfect way to highlight peaches.
5 cups of fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 stick of unsalted butter, melted
1 cup flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 cup milk
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Melt the butter and pour it into a 13×9 baking dish and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder and salt, mix. Add the milk and stir to combine. Pour this over the butter into the baking dish. Do not stir – I know it seems strange, but trust me!
In a large saucepan, add the sliced peaches, remaining 1/2 cup sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and lemon juice. Bring to a boil and stir constantly. Spoon the peaches and juice over the batter. Again, do not stir. The batter will rise above the peaches while it’s cooking. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
