Peach Cobbler Recipe

This summer is flying by; the days are getting cooler and shorter.

Homemade Peach Cobbler

What type of peaches should I use for optimal results?  

For the perfect peach cobbler, it is crucial to select peaches that are slightly firm, and completely free of bruises or soft spots. Avoid peaches that are soft, stringy, or mushy to prevent a filling with the same texture.

PEACH COBBLER RECIPE – EASY TIPS

Even Distribution: When spooning the cobbler batter over the peaches, try to distribute it as evenly as possible to ensure consistent baking.

Baking Time: Keep an eye on the cobbler as it bakes. It should be golden brown on top, and the filling should be bubbly. Baking times may vary depending on the oven; therefore, it is crucial to check for doneness.

Serve Warm: Peach cobbler is best enjoyed warm. Let it cool for a few minutes after taking it out of the oven, but serve it while it’s still warm for the best flavor and texture.

Here are some tips on how to cut and remove the fruit pit:

To easily slice a peach, first cut into the fruit until you hit the pit. Next, cut around the peach from the stem, making sure to end at the same spot. Once you have made a full circle, use both hands to twist each half of the fruit in opposite directions until they come apart. One side will have the pit, while the other will be pit-free. If the pit is stubborn and won’t come out, simply slide your knife between the top and bottom of the pit to loosen it from the flesh, and then remove it by pulling it out with your fingers.

This recipe uses Buttermilk. If you do not have buttermilk, this recipe might help you:

Homemade buttermilk if needed. Add 1 teaspoon of white vinegar or lemon juice to a liquid measuring cup. Then add enough cold whole milk to the same measuring cup until it reaches 1/2 cup. Stir to combine and let it sit for 5 minutes. The homemade “buttermilk” will be somewhat curdled and ready to use in the recipe.

HOW TO MAKE PEACH COBBLER:

Peach Filling:

Preheat oven to 350°F and Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking pan.

Cut your peaches into small chunks to retain their soft texture. I find that by slicing it the peaches become mushy after baking.

Biscuit Topping: 

Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Cut the cold butter into small cubes and add to the dry ingredients. Incorporate cold butter with flour using a pastry cutter or two forks until it resembles coarse pea-sized crumbs. A food processor may also be used and even your fingers.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What makes peach cobbler thicken up?

The cornstarch will thicken the juices so that your cobbler doesn’t come out runny.

How do you keep peach cobbler from being runny?

Adding a thickening agent such as cornstarch will prevent this. it’s also important to pay attention to bake times: one reason you’ll often end up with a runny fruit pie is simply that it hasn’t been baked long enough.

Why is my cobbler so dry?

Bake your cobbler at the correct temperature. The filling should be thick and bubbly, but overcooking will cause it to dry out as the liquid evaporates.

Do you have to peel the peaches?
I suggest peeling the peaches before cooking them for the cobbler. This is because the peels may come off during cooking, which could affect the texture of the cobbler. Although it may take some extra effort, it’s worth it to peel the peaches beforehand to ensure a flawless cobbler.
