Living in Georgia, peaches are everywhere during the summer! I was never a big peach eater until I tried fresh, in season peaches. It is such a huge difference eating a big fresh Georgia peach, than eating a little grocery store peach during the winter. You need to buy peaches in season, and fresh if possible. I love going to farmers markets in the spring and summer, and in Georgia they are stocked with delicious peaches. However, if you don’t live in a peach producing state, then head to places like Whole Foods and Trader Joes to get the most fresh produce you find. Anyway, I had some extra peaches in the fridge and needed to use them up before they went bad, so I decided to make a peach cobbler. It turned out more like a peach crumble (what is the difference anyway?!), and it was so delicious. My usually fruit-hating husband even gobbled this down, and my picky eater toddler loved it as well. It was a huge hit and super easy!
If you only have a few peaches, or want a smaller portion, the recipe can definitely be sized down. This recipe makes a large serving, and if I were you I would make the whole thing because people are definitely going to want seconds. Serve this warm with a dollop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream and get ready to taste heaven!
This is a good recipe for kids to help with, too, because it really can’t be messed up and there is a lot of dumping ingredients into the dish!
- 4 large peaches, cored, peeled, and sliced thinly
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 3 TBS flour
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 cup flour
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 medium egg, beaten
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease an 11x7 glass baking dish, and then spread the peaches evenly in the dish.
- 2. In a small bowl mix 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 3 TBS flour, and 1 tsp lemon juice with a fork. Sprinkle mixture evenly over the peaches.
- 3. In a medium bowl mix (ingredients from topping list) flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt. Stir in the egg with a fork until it resembles a course crumble.
- 4. Sprinkle the crumbles evenly over the peaches and drizzle the melted butter evenly over the top.
- 5. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the topping is browned and the filling is bubbling.
- Serve with a dollop of ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy!
