Peach Cobbler to Feed a Crowd

Quick Peach Cobbler 027Right now, in the middle of August, when our grocery stores and market stands are filled with ripe peaches, this  is the time for making peach cobbler. My recipe which I invented from a smaller one of my Mom’s, feeds a crowd (ten at least) and brought raves when I took it to a recent family get together. In fact, it was a sad moment when I left for home without the leftover cobbler. It’s not polite to take home food you bring as a gift. (sob.)

I love this recipe because it makes a crust on top that is almost like a pie crust, giving it that lovely southern cobbler quality that I miss so much after leaving the south for life in CT. Also, the directions are very simple and fool proof. Please do not think I have left out the milk. There is no milk in this recipe, but I promise you it will turn out just fine. For ease of serving and portability, I used an aluminum 9 x 13 pan, but if I were serving it at home, I would use a pretty 9 x 13 ceramic dish.

Ingredients:

6 – 8 ripe medium peaches

3 Tbsps Brown Sugar

1 tsp cinnamon or allspice

1 cup White Sugar

2 cups All Purpose Flour

2 sticks butter, melted

2 eggs

1 Tsp Vanilla

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit

Butter an aluminum pan or pyrex dish

Peel and slice the peaches and place the slices into a large bowl.

Sprinkle the peaches with the brown sugar and cinnamon or allspice. Toss them around so all is coated with the sugar mixture. Pour the sliced peaches into the buttered pan or dish. Set aside.

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer at high speed, beat the two eggs and cup of white sugar until thick.

Reducing the speed to medium, pour in the melted butter and vanilla and continue to beat until the butter is incorporated.

Reduce the speed to low and slowly add in the flour or turn off the mixer and add the flour using a wooden spoon. Scrape the bowl making sure all the flour has been incorporated into the batter. The batter will be very thick.

Pour the batter over the peaches. It is fine if areas of peach show through. Try to spread the batter to cover most of the pan, but it is not liquid enought to go into every crevice, so that is why I say it is fine if some peach areas are still visible.

Place the cobbler in the oven and set the timer for 35 to 45 minutes. Look at the picture. When your cobblerr looks like this picture, it is done.

You can serve it alone or with a dollop of ice cream; either way it tastes divine.

  1. That looks delicious. Last year after being married nearly 14 years my husband told me that his favorite pie was peach pie. What? How did he not tell me this?

    I made one, lattice top too! But he was sick and we ended up going to Mayo clinic and I gave my first peach pie away. Sadly my husband died last December without ever trying it – I haven’t thought of peaches until I saw your post, I think it would be okay to make another one, no?!

    • Hi Bizzykitchen,
      I just saw this, and it’s almost a month later. Sorry about the loss of your husband. Hope you have friends and a church to strengthen and support you during this difficult time.
      Of course you should make a peach pie!! Share it with your neighbors or at work or church or wherever you can share something homemade. It will make you feel so special and they will feel special too.
      Today I plan to make a peach cake which is very inexpensive and easy to make and returns a lot for the little it requires – my favorite kind of recipe.
