Texas Peach Cobbler

I reckon it’s time for me to share my peach cobbler recipe.  I’ve been waiting until peaches are in season in most parts of the country.  This is a very special dessert.  Serve it with Sunday supper.

Texas Peach Cobbler
Makes 1 small cobbler in a 3-cup dish.
For the filling:
  • 3 medium ripe peaches (a little less than a 1 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
For the batter:
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 5 tablespoons unbleached flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ cup half-and-half
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. While the oven is pre-heating, place a 3-cup capacity baking dish in the oven with the butter to melt. Keep an eye on it-don’t let it brown.
  3. Meanwhile, make the filling: Peel and half the peaches. Using a spoon, scrape the center of each peach to remove the reddish center-it becomes bitter when baked. Then, slice each peach into about 8 slices. Stir together the peaches, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon and vanilla together in a bowl and let set while you make the batter.
  4. For the batter: Whisk together the flour, sugar and baking powder. Stir in the half-and-half lightly—small lumps are okay.
  5. Spoon this mixture over the melted butter in the baking dish and DO NOT STIR. Evenly pour the fruit on top. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Serve with Blue Bell vanilla ice cream.

    I love your site! I like to make small quantities of baking, and it’s annoying to divide recipes into quarters or eighths. The Texan slant is interesting too.

    My mom just brought me a basket of peaches from home this weekend and being on leave from work, I had to make a smaller dessert than usual – so this recipe was perfect! I have to admit I was skeptical at first with the batter being on bottom, but it was absolutely delicious! Of course, having the authentic Texas peaches didn’t hurt… ;)

    I made this tonight and it was FABULOUS! I think it was a little more than two servings, but the two of us ate it all anyways (cobbler doesn’t reheat well ;-) – that was what we told ourselves to justify). Thanks so much! Love the blog!

    I can’t wait to go to the store for peaches and make this cobbler. I love your website. I love to bake, but I hate to have to throw away what I can’t or shouldn’t eat. Your recipes always come out so perfectly! How about a Texas Sheet Cake for two, next?

    This is a different recipe from one my daughter makes. Think I will make this and surprise her. It looks absolutely delicious.
