fresh peach cobbler

Friends, I baked! 

Remember the farmers market haul from last week? I was contemplating what to do with all these peaches when I ventured over to Pinterest to see what I could find. Talk about overwhelmed by the options! I was having the hardest time deciding between cobbler, pie, crisp, or dumplings when I landed on this recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction. It seemed simple enough and looked absolutely delicious. Keep in mind that before this adventure, I had never even peeled a peach before... You can stop laughing now.


Here's What I Used:

Filling
8 medium peaches (peeled and cut into chunks)
1/4th cup of light brown sugar
1 tbsp of cornstarch
1 tbsp of lemon juice
1/2 tsp of pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
1/8th tsp of ground nutmeg
1/8th tsp of salt

Topping
2 cups of all-purpose flour
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1 and 1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/4th tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 cup of unsalted butter (cold and cubed)
1/2 cup of buttermilk

Egg Wash
1 large egg (beaten)
1 tbsp of buttermilk

Final Touch
2 tbsp of granulated sugar
1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon

Here's What I Did:

Preheat the oven to 350℉ and grease a 9x13 inch pan. I used Pam cooking spray.

Place all the Filling ingredients into a large bowl and stir until thoroughly combined. Spoon the filling into the pan and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and set to the side until you're ready to add the topping.



Using a large bowl, whisk the Topping flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. Then add the cubed butter. Use two forks to cut the butter into the mixture. I smooshed and smashed until the butter was mixed in and resembled tiny bits. Then add the buttermilk - in small doses, stirring in between each one. Once all the buttermilk is mixed in, stir with a vengeance until evenly combined and the mixture looks like dough. Take handfuls of the dough and flatten with your hands - it will look like a small patty. Place on top of the peach filling.


Combine the egg and buttermilk in a small dish. Lightly brush the egg wash over top of the biscuit dough. I did not use all of the mixture, not even close.

Mix together the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle across the dough to your heart's content. I only used about 3/4ths of the final touch.


Place in the oven, uncovered, and bake for approximately 40 minutes. The topping should be lightly browned and not at all doughy. Use a toothpick to confirm the topping is cooked completely through.



How I Served It:

I served warm with vanilla ice cream on the side.


Things to Note:

Sally highly recommended chunks of peaches as opposed to slices, and I am in complete agreement with her. It takes a bit more time, but is totally worth it.

I refrigerated the peach cobbler after it cooled down until we were ready to serve again. Once refrigerated, warm in the microwave for approximately 15 seconds to enjoy the right-out-of-the-oven taste.

My husband is somewhat of a connoisseur. He can tell if you change the slightest thing in a recipe and will tell you honestly whether or not something is worth making again, just okay or spectacular. My chest is a bit puffed up on this one - he said it was hands down the best cobbler of any kind he has ever had!

This was really quite an easy recipe and one that I would definitely make again.

Please let me know if you try it and whether or not it's a winner in your book. 
 
Enjoy!

  3. I am certainly not laughing because I've never peeled a peach before, either! What the what?! Alise and I went to the Farmer's Market yesterday specifically for blueberries for a cobbler, but they didn't have any. Peaches were everywhere, though, and you guessed it! I didn't buy any. Now I wish I had! Can't wait to try this! It looks totally yummy!!
