How to Make Homemade Lazy Peach Cobbler
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Step 2: Pour the melted butter in a 9×13-inch baking dish, ensuring the bottom and sides are evenly coated.
Step 3: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the peaches and their juices.
Step 4: Add 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of water to the peaches and bring to a simmer.
Step 5: In a small bowl, stir the cornstarch into the remaining water to create a slurry.
Step 6: Stir the cornstarch mixture into the peach mixture and simmer until the sauce thickens, about 3 minutes.
Step 7: Remove the peach mixture from the heat and let it cool slightly.
Step 8: Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the self-rising flour, vanilla, 1 1/2 cups of sugar, and milk until a smooth batter forms.
Step 9: Pour the peach mixture into the prepared baking dish.
Step 10: Spoon the flour mixture over the peach mixture, spreading it evenly.
Step 11: In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon and the remaining sugar.
Step 12: Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture generously over the cobbler.
Step 13: Bake the cobbler in the preheated oven until the top is golden-brown and the peach filling is bubbly around the edges, approximately 30 minutes.
Step 14: Remove the cobbler from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
Step 15: Serve the classic peach cobbler warm and, if desired, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top for a delightful and comforting treat.
- For a rustic touch, you can substitute fresh or frozen peaches instead of canned ones. Simply peel and slice about 6 to 8 medium-sized peaches and use them in the recipe instead.
- Feel free to adjust the amount of sugar according to your taste preference and the sweetness of the peaches used.
- This cobbler is best served fresh, but you can store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. To reheat, warm individual portions in the microwave or reheat the whole dish in the oven until heated through.
