Inside: Nothing warms your heart better than a nice bowl of warm Southern-style peach cobbler, with a hefty scoop of vanilla icecream. This quick and easy Southern-style peach cobbler recipe is the perfect after-dinner dessert.
Peach cobbler was probably the last thing I thought I’d ever make, but when my honey said he was craving it, I decided to give it a go and make it.
Seeing how I never made a peach cobbler before, I asked a few of my friends how to make one that would please any Southerner.
One of the best things about living in the South is, we have some of the finest cooks around.
After looking over a few different recipes, and noticing they were all similar, I decided to jump feet first and by using their recipes as guidelines, I came up with my own version of Southern-style peach cobbler.
This recipe only has 7 ingredients and it’s really simple to make. I did have one little snafu, which wasn’t major, but I’ll know to do things differently the next time.
You see, my casserole dish was a tad too big. I should have gone for the smaller dish, because I didn’t realize the batter would shrink, leaving an excess pool of melted butter around the edges of the dish.
One of the most important things you must do with this recipe is to use self-rising flour. If you use all-purpose flour, I can’t guarantee the dough will come out with the proper consistency.
Southern-style Peach cobbler
- 1 cup self rising flour
- 1½ tsp baking powder
- 1 stick butter (melted)
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 can canned peaches (29oz.)
Preheat oven to 350°
Melt the stick of butter in a casserole dish, while you're preheating the oven.
While the butter is melting In a large bowl, combine the self-rising flour, baking powder, and cinnamon. Mix well.
Add the milk and vanilla. Mix all of the ingredients together. The batter may look thin and possibly lumpy.
Pour the batter into the casserole dish over the melted butter.
Place the peaches and syrup on top of the batter. Do not stir. The batter should rise to the top.
Sprinkle liberally with cinnamon or a mixture of sugar and cinnamon.
Place in the oven at 350° for 50 minutes.
Serve warm with a scoop of icecream or whipped topping.
It’s best to heat up the peach cobbler and add a dollop or two of ice cream. We use Haggan Daz, and while I think they have superb vanilla ice cream, I can’t stand how hard it is. While trying to scoop the ice cream out of the container, it went flying off the kitchen counter, landing upside down on the floor.
I guess the good thing about it being hard as a rock is, none of the ice cream fell out on my wood floor when it was ice cream side down.
Figures, this happened after I mopped the floor in the morning. Doesn’t it always happen that way? We removed a few layers of the icecream and cleaned off the container, just to play it safe.
