Transcript:How to Make Easy Peach Cobbler

Hi, I'm Elizabeth Labau today I'm going to show you how to make an easy peach cobbler using a recipe from About.com's Southern Food site. This cobbler uses canned peaches so it could be made anytime of year and it comes together really quickly.

To Make This Easy Peach Cobbler, You Will Need:

  • 1 large (29 oz) and 1 medium (15 oz) can of sliced peaches in syrup
  • 1-1/4 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp of nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp of cornstarch1 cup plus
  • 1 tbsp of sugar
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1-1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of salt1 egg, beaten
  • 6 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tbsp milk

Reserve the Canned Peaches Syrup for the Cobbler Recipe

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix together 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and set this mixture aside for now. Drain the cans of peaches over a bowl so that you reserve the syrup. Pour 1 cup of syrup into a measuring cup, and discard the rest. If you don't have 1 cup, add enough water to equal 1 cup. Combine the cornstarch mixture with 3/4 cup of the syrup and stir or whisk them together until the cornstarch dissolves and there are no lumps remaining. Put the peaches in a bowl and add the remaining 1 tsp of cinnamon, the nutmeg, and the cornstarch mixture, and toss them together until the peaches are well-coated.

Pour the Cobbler Batter Over the Peaches in a Baking Dish

Pour the peaches onto the bottom of a baking dish and spread them into an even layer.In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 cup of sugar, the flour, the baking powder, and the salt. When that is well mixed, add the beaten egg, the remaining 1/4 cup of peach syrup, the milk, and 4 tablespoons of the melted butter. Whisk everything together until you don't have any lumps remaining. This will be a thin batter, similar to a cake batter. Pour it over the peaches in the pan, trying to cover as much area as possible. It will spread while baking, so don't worry about a few bare patches. Pour the remaining 2 tablespoons of melted butter over the batter, then finish by sprinkling the cinnamon-sugar mixture all over the top.

Bake the peach cobbler at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes, until there is a nice brown crust on top and the peaches are bubbling around the sides. Let the cobbler cool until it is barely warm, then dish it out. There's nothing like peach cobbler to help you enjoy the taste of summer year-round. To fully appreciate this cobbler, you need to serve it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream!
