There are just some desserts that are meant to be enjoyed during the final months of summer, and peach cobbler is one of them. After all, it is when the stone fruit is in season. If fresh peaches aren’t available to you, this simple, old-fashioned dessert can be easily be made with canned fruit or frozen fruit.
You’ll want to make sure you have a variety of pantry staples to make peach cobber. After pre-heating your oven it’s time to get to work, making a basic batter. After making your batter, you should melt butter in a cast-iron pan and pour the batter over the butter. Then,lay the peaches on top of the batter and spinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
Bake the peach cobber for about 45 minutes, serve it with a warm scoop of vanilla ice cream and more of our classic Southern recipes that are better than grandma’s.
