You are going to absolutely fall in love with this fresh peach cobbler recipe!! It is a traditional cobbler. There is only one TRUE cobbler. Creamy, fluffy, buttery old fashioned flavor!Not a pile of fruit filling with pie crust thrown on top. No! That is not a cobbler. Sorry. Click To Tweet
The best peaches in the WORLD are found right here in Colorful Colorado! I’m not kidding. Palisade peaches make this fresh peach cobbler recipe even better.
If you’re ever in Colorado in late August or early September, do yourself a favor and get your hands on some Palisade Peaches!!
Be sure to get freestone and NOT cling. The flavor you get from the freestone peaches is like none other!! They are so juicy you have to eat them over the kitchen sink.
Fresh Peach Cobbler Recipe
You are going to start by making a fruit syrup mixture. Combine 1 cup of sugar, the fruit, and 1/2 cup of water in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
Set the peach sugar mixture aside.
Is your mouth watering yet??!
Next, melt the butter…
A whole yummy stick of butter!
Your oven should be preheated at this point. Just pop the skillet with the butter right in the oven to melt while you mix the batter.
The batter is super simple! Mix the self-rising flour, 1 cup of sugar, and the milk. Mix slowly to prevent lumps in the batter.
Now we pour the batter for our fresh peach cobbler into the melted butter!
You absolutely MUST resist the urge to stir the batter into the butter!! Click To Tweet
DO NOT STIR!!
If you stir, it will fall.
Your peach cobbler will not rise properly potentially ending in a soggy mess.
Can you even believe how stinking easy this fresh peach cobbler recipe is so far? We’re almost done!
Now you want to carefully spoon the fruit and syrup mixture over the batter. No dumping!
Fresh Peach Cobbler Ready For The Oven!
Sprinkle some cinnamon on top and bake in a 350-degree oven for 30-45 minutes until golden brown.
Fresh peach cobbler is very tasty on its own, however, a big dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream and we’re talking big league!
Can I use canned peaches for this recipe?
You most definitely can use any canned fruit! I was thinking about trying a mandarine orange cobbler!
How good would that be??!
It would taste just like an orange creamsicle. Nom!!
You can also use FROZEN peaches! By the way, if you want to know how to freeze fresh peaches, CLICK HERE!
