Texas Peach Cobbler

Found this recipe last summer on Pinterest. It sure made the rounds then, but I just got around to making it. Peaches are divine right now and if there's one thing I love it's fresh peaches. The juice running down your chin, the sweetness....simply delicious. I've had them for breakfast the past two mornings. 
I'm also fond of cobblers (as you've noticed) so used what peaches I had left to make this one. I halved the recipe because I'm not cooking for a big family; even at that this recipe will easily be enough for two for several days. Refrigerate and then heat it up. 
Note: the recipe below is for the full amount. 
Frankly, it looks as though a scoop of vanilla or a lovely light herbal ice cream should be on top, but it was divine without.

Texas Style Peach Cobbler
Found on Smoked 'n Grilled blog

2 lbs fresh peaches (approx. 7 medium peaches) 
1/2 cup butter   
1 cup flour 
2 cups sugar 
2 tsp baking powder 
1/2 tsp salt 
2/3 cup milk 
1 egg 
1 tsp cinnamon 
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg


To peel fresh, ripe peaches bring a pot of water to boil. Submerge peaches completely in boiling water for approximately one minute then immediately dunk them in a bowl full of ice water. 
Remove peaches and the skin will practically fall off in your hands. 
Peel and slice the peaches, place in a medium bowl.
Preheat oven to 350°F. 
Melt butter in a 13×9 inch casserole. 
In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, 1 cup of sugar, baking powder, and salt. 
Add milk and egg and stir to combine. 
Pour batter over melted butter in the casserole dish, do not stir
Add 1 cup of sugar to peaches along with cinnamon and nutmeg if using. Stir to combine. 
Spoon peaches and sugar gently over batter, do not stir. 
Bake casserole for 30-40 minutes or until batter is fully baked and golden.

  1. Aww Barbara I love peaches and this clobber look amazing.

  2. Now I have a sudden craving for cobbler! This looks awesome, Barbara.

  3. Dear Barbara, A delicious dessert. Enjoy your weekend. Blessings, Catherine

  4. looks great enjoying peaches right now also

  5. We've been enjoying peaches for several months and to me they are some of the best in years. Lovely cobbler Barbara and a great way to use fresh peaches.

  6. YUMMMM! Thank you so much for sharing .

  7. omg, that looks gooood gawd gooood! so impressed with you, Ms. Barbara. found a lovely comment you left over my way, and was just so bummed that i hadn't found it til recently. but you showed off your daughter's website, and i visited it (of course) and was duly impressed by her gallery and the fact that your family has the entire east coast covered (seemingly) between and amongst yourselves.

    ALWAYS get a kick visiting you, and living (and eating) vicariously through your cooking and travels and wonderful family.

    wishing you all the best summer meals that remain before (my fave) Fall hits us!!


  8. Love, love peach cobbler ( all fruit cobblers). This really looks delicious.

  9. It does look like bread pudding! Early this week, I bought a 20-pound box (!!) of peaches, so I'm looking for ways to use them up!

  10. I dearly love peaches and haven't made one thing with them yet! This goes to the top of the list :) It looks delightful!

  11. Divine! A fantastic cobbler. I have a soft spot for that kind of dessert.



  12. Yum! Something the Knight and I could agree on, but it's almost apple season here...

  13. I've made a cobbler similar to this, sometimes with the egg, sometimes without. I call it magic cobbler. It is such a good recipe. peach season is almost over here in Tennessee-always a sad moment---but we do have apples and pears to look forward to.

  14. this is my first time seeing this cobbler, and i'm glad i did--what a treat! i love peach season. :)
