The Best Easy Recipe for Peach Cobbler
Fruit desserts are my favorite. They have a natural sweetness that adds so much tasty flavor. Peaches are another one of my favorites so you can imagine how much I love desserts with peaches – especially this peach cobbler. The peaches are sweet and a little syrupy with a crispy biscuit topping. All you need is a scoop of vanilla ice cream and it’s the best summer treat.
I find that peaches are often overlooked, especially when it comes to baking. My kids aren’t huge fans of fresh peaches but it’s a different ball game when it comes to dessert. They love this peach cobbler recipe (even without ice cream!). I make it often during the summer because that’s when they are in season and they taste the absolute best. It also gives me an excuse to buy some extra for myself to snack on.
The best part about peach cobbler is that it takes little time to prepare, so you can spend more time eating it. More quick and easy recipes using peaches that I highly recommend are Peach Dump Cake and Peach Pie Bars.
Can I Use Canned Peaches?
Yes! This is a quick substitution that takes out an extra step. You can even substitute in frozen peaches if you desire. I also love to do this when fresh peaches aren’t in season so I can enjoy this homemade cobbler any time of the year.
If you use canned peaches, use the ones that are packaged in their juice and not syrup. Drain half the liquid because too much can make the filling too thin. I also add ½-¾ cup of sugar instead of ¾-1 cup. This keeps it from being overly sweet.
