This fruity peach cobbler is the easiest dessert to make. Use any fruit you have and enjoy all year round!
Oh hey there dessert lovers! It's been way too long between delicious desserts around here so I'm back with one that is going to knock your socks off!
I've been making this peach cobbler for a couple of years and I'm so so so sorry that it's taken me so long to share it (kids) but I just know that all will be forgiven the second you take a bite of this juicy, sweet, crispy, jammy, probably my all time favourite dessert ever.
If you are unfamiliar with cobbler, let me tell you what you're missing out on. It's similar to a crumble in that you have a layer of fresh fruit on the bottom and a topping. But where a crumble has an oaty, crumbly (duh) topping, cobbler is more like a cookie/biscuit topping. But JUST as easy as a crumble, if not more so.
Step 1: Place sliced peaches in a greased baking dish and sprinkle with sugar. Give it a quick mix together in the dish.
Step 2: Mix up the cobbler topping (one bowl!) and use your fingers to crumble over top of the peaches
Step 3: Bake for about 25 minutes until golden brown, remove from the oven and sprinkle with raw sugar before putting back in for another 5-10 minutes.
Step 4: Remove from the oven and allow to sit for 15 minutes to give it time to get all syrupy and delicious before serving with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Can I use frozen or canned peaches?
Yes! If you are using frozen peaches just allow them to thaw slightly before tossing with sugar. If using canned peaches, drain the liquid from the can and skip adding the sugar to toss them in.
Can I use other fruit?
Absolutely! Use berries, apples, rhubarb - anything you have! Or even try a combination - yum!
