spring time and easy peach cobbler



For many the taste of a peach is the first moment of summer. Memories such as the swing in the back yard and the slap of the closing screen door, the feel of warm summer dew in the grass and the hum of insect wings for me are right there with peach season. The sweet, soft and fuzzy skin of the peach helps me relive fond memories.


Here are a few tips on how to select the best peaches of the season

  • look for a peach with a creamy undertone for the best. Peaches with rosy coloring may be under ripe just like those with green ground color. Peaches that are not ripe will lack flavor and shrivel and become tough
  • Peaches that are firm to a bit soft and free from bruises are the ones that you are looking for
  • Peaches that have a fragrance that is sweet and peachy means the fruit is ready to eat.





  • 6 Tbsp (3/4 cup) melted, unsalted butter 
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar (separated)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 29 oz can sliced peaches in syrup*
  • cinnamon, optional

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Pour butter into 13 x 9 baking dish.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add 1 cup sugar and milk. Mix to combine.
  • Pour batter over butter (do not stir). Pour sliced peaches, with juices, on top of batter (do not stir).
  • Pour 1/2 cup of sugar evenly over top of mixture in the dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.
  • Bake at 375° for 45 - 60 minutes or until golden brown. Serve cobbler warm or cool, topped with ice cream or without.


  • *If it's peach season, and you'd like to use fresh peaches, you certainly can. First, you'll need to to peel, pit and slice approximately 5 fresh peaches. Bring 1 cup sugar, peach slices, and a Tbsp of lemon juice to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Use this in place of the canned peaches in the recipe.
