Old Oven Peach Cobbler is a delightful and classic dessert that’s perfect for showcasing ripe, juicy peaches. Here’s a simple recipe to prepare this delicious treat:
For the Peach Filling:
- 4 cups peeled, pitted, and sliced fresh peaches (about 5-6 medium-sized peaches)
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
For the Cobbler Topping:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
- 1/4 cup boiling water
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced peaches, 1 cup of granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour. Toss the ingredients together until the peaches are well coated. Set the peach mixture aside while you prepare the cobbler topping.
- In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients for the cobbler topping: 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.
- Add the chilled, cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Using a pastry cutter, fork, or your fingers, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
- Pour the boiling water over the flour and butter mixture and stir until just combined. The dough will be slightly sticky.
- Take a 9×9-inch baking dish or a similar-sized oven-safe dish and lightly grease it with butter or cooking spray.
- Spread the prepared peach filling evenly into the greased baking dish.
- Using a spoon or your fingers, drop spoonfuls of the cobbler topping over the peach filling, covering it as evenly as possible.
- Bake the cobbler in the preheated oven for about 35-40 minutes or until the topping is golden brown, and the peach filling is bubbling.
- Once done, remove the cobbler from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving.
- Serve the Old Oven Peach Cobbler warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra indulgence.
- You can also sprinkle some cinnamon or powdered sugar over the cobbler for added flavor and presentation.
Enjoy your delicious Old Oven Peach Cobbler!
