Peach Cobbler screams summer to me. Juicy and sweet tree-ripened peaches surrounded in a buttery crust and topped with vanilla ice cream is as good as it gets as far as summer desserts are concerned.
This Easy Southern Peach Cobbler is an old recipe I’ve been making for as long as I can remember. I think it is the easiest and most delicious way to make peach cobbler.
You start by melting a stick of butter in a 9×13-inch pan by placing it in the oven.
I always use Challenge Butter for my baking. You won’t find a fresher, better-tasting butter anywhere. Challenge Butter is all natural and made with the freshest, purest cream. It contains no artificial ingredients and is made from 2 natural ingredients: 100% real pasteurized sweet cream and salt.
Next, you make a simple batter from flour, sugar, and milk and pour the batter into the pan with the melted butter. There’s no need to mix them together.
The peaches get spooned on top of the batter. As the batter bakes, it puffs up around them.
The batter forms a rich and buttery crust. Most of the butter gets pushed to the edges of the pan and the edges are super buttery and crisp.
With most desserts made in a 9×13-inch pan (like brownies), I want to go straight for a middle piece. But with this Easy Southern Peach Cobbler, the buttery edge pieces are where it’s at. 🙂
A bowl full of warm peach cobbler with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream. There’s no dessert I’d rather have.
It’s the perfect ending to a summer meal.
