I used fresh peaches in this recipe, but fresh ripe nectarines or drained canned peaches will work as well. Serve this super easy cobbler warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or drizzle with some plain heavy cream.
As the cobbler bakes, the cake-like batter partially covers the cinnamon-spiced peaches.
It's a fabulous summer recipe, perfect for a cookout or Fourth of July celebration. Enjoy it any time of the year!
- Heat oven to 375 F (190 C/Gas 5).
- Pour melted butter into a 2-quart baking dish (11-by-7-inch or 9-inch square).
- In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of the sugar, the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir to blend. Stir in the milk and vanilla until blended. Pour the batter over the melted butter.
- Toss the peaches with the remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Arrange the peach slices over the batter.
