SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS
Peaches: Cobbler can be made with many types of fruit filling. In this easy cobbler recipe you could swap out the peaches for many other fruits. Some of the most common are apples, strawberries, raspberries, cherries, rhubarb, or blackberries. You could also make a mixed berry cobbler and use more than one type of berry.
You can also opt to use canned or frozen fruit instead of fresh fruit. This will make the prep quicker, as you don’t have to peel or slice your fruit. If you are using frozen peaches, be sure to let them thaw completely. If using canned, be sure to drain the fruit juices.
Topping: A popular way to simplify the crust topping in a cobbler recipe is to use cake mix as an alternative to making your own crust topping. It doesn’t taste quite as delicious, but for the ease it offers, it can be worth it. I recommend using a vanilla cake mix to do this.
Another popular alternative is to use Bisquick as the base for your crust topping. The Bisquick will still need to be mixed with sugar, butter, and milk or hot water.
HOW TO MAKE THIS PEACH COBBLER RECIPE
STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 425°F. Spray a 9×13 deep-sided baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
STEP TWO: In a large bowl, combine peaches, lemon juice, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice, vanilla extract and cornstarch. Stir well to coat all peach slices.
PRO TIP: If you are using canned peaches, make sure to drain them well before adding to the other ingredients.
STEP THREE: Pour peach mixture into the bottom of your greased 9×13 baking dish. Place in the oven to bake the peaches for about 10 minutes while you make the crust and cinnamon sugar topping.
STEP FOUR: In a separate medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and grated butter. Stir to combine. Pour hot water into a bowl and mix flour mixture until a dough forms.
PRO TIP: Make sure your butter is really cold! Take it out of the fridge right before you begin this process.
STEP FIVE: In a separate bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon. Stir well.
STEP SIX: Remove your peaches from the oven and drop spoonfuls of the crust topping mixture on top of the peaches. Use a spoon or spatula to spread out the crust topping mixture so it’s evenly covering the peaches. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon topping evenly over the top of the cobbler.
STEP SEVEN: Place back in the oven and let cook for 25-30 minutes, or until the crust topping is golden brown and the peach juices are bubbling up on the sides of the cobbler.
STEP EIGHT: Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
HOW TO SERVE
