If you love a delicious, homemade peach cobbler, then this is the recipe for you! Not only is it easy, but it is the best piece of food heaven you can make.
This delicious recipe is made with canned peaches and my favorite dessert spices, cinnamon and nutmeg. Not only are you getting deliciously baked peaches, but this dessert is accompanied with a chewy, crisp and caramelized crust that you won't be able to resist.
Now that we are craving a hunking slice of peach cobbler, make sure that you have your favorite vanilla ice cream in the freezer. Let's get into this delicious recipe!
2 cans of peaches (in heavy syrup)
1 whole lemon (juiced without seeds and pulp)
1 stick of unsalted butter + 5 tbsps
1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of salt
2 tsps of vanilla extract
2 cups of flour
2 tsps of baking powder
1 1/3 cup of sugar
1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. In a buttered cast iron skillet (wide and deep enough for your cobbler), add in both cans of peaches (and syrup) into the skillet; followed by 5 tablespoons of melted butter, juiced lemon, cinnamon, pinch of nutmeg, pinch of salt and vanilla extract. Mix all ingredients until well-combined.
3. In a large bowl, add flour, baking powder and sugar. Mix your ingredients. Once well-mixed, add your flour mixture on top of the peaches. Ensure that all peaches are covered. Then drizzle 1 melted stick of butter on top, drizzle generously. You want to ensure that there aren't any dry flour spots, if so your crust will not brown and caramelize in your cast iron skillet.
4. Add your cast iron skillet into the 375 oven and bake cobbler for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, turn your oven down to 350 and allow cobbler to continue baking for another 30 minutes. Be sure to check on your cobbler, so that it doesn't burn. (P.S. if you find that you have a few dry flour spots, cut small tabs of butter and place on those areas. Allow your cobbler to bake for an additional 10 minutes).
5. Once cobbler is done, turn off your oven and allow it sit for another 5 minutes. Enjoy your warm cobbler with a scoop (or two) of vanilla ice cream.
