We’re in the last month of Summer and it is also Peach Season!!! So I decided to give y’all my recipe for peach cobbler! This year was the first year I ever made peach cobbler but I did dang good for my first time! I also added quite a bit of ingredients nobody was telling me to add, but the choice of adding extra things made it delicious!
I used some peaches we picked at Eckert’s Orchard in Versailles Ky; right now it is their peach season and they do offer pick-your-own! It was so fun picking peaches with my mom, definitely something I suggest everyone do at some point! Eckert’s has fun for the whole family too! Below you can find the peach cobbler recipe.
Ingredients and Measurements:
- 1 1/2 cup of self-rising flour
- 8 tablespoons of butter (1 full stick)
- 1/2 cup of water
- 2 cups of sugar (divided)
- 5 peaches (make sure they are ripened well)
- 1 1/2 cup of milk
- ground cinnamon (this will be sprinkled)
- 3 drops of vanilla extract
- dash of salt
- cornstarch (only if needed)
Steps to Create the Cobbler:
- Boil peaches for 1 minute, then place in an ice bath. This will make your peaches very easy to peel, and somehow also makes them sweeter! Then slice and peel the peaches.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Take the peach slices and pour 1 cup of sugar into a pot. Mix sugar and peaches. cook for 10 minutes as you’re getting rest of the recipe together. Stir occasionally.
- Combine flour with 1 cup of sugar and a small pinch of salt, then mix. After mixing add 1 1/2 cup of milk. Keep stirring till batter is moist. If you feel it may be too runny, add a little bit of cornstarch maybe 1/3 cup, you’re the judge! Mix again if you added cornstarch.
- Add 3 drops of vanilla extract if desired into batter and mix.
- Melt 1 stick/8 tablespoons of butter and then pour into the oven-safe baking pan.
- Pour batter into the pan, then place your peaches in on top.
- Sprinkle some cinnamon all around on top of the batter and peaches.
- Bake in oven for 45-51 minutes. Use a toothpick to see if it is no longer doughy.
- Serve alone or with vanilla ice-cream!
More About Our Morning Trip to Eckert’s Orchard
Growing up, I have always visited Eckert’s Orchard. There is something about going in the summertime that makes it even more special. Most people only go to orchards in the fall since they have fall festivities and pumpkins. But going during peach and blackberry season is different and a great experience. I am just glad I had the day with my mom! At Eckert’s, you can pick your own peaches and blackberries during their season with a field pass! Their field passes (for the year 2021) are just $3 for each adult (without considering tax)! However, they also have the sunflower fields open so you can actually get a pass for all three! Sunflower field, pick-your-own blackberries, and peaches; this 3 in 1 pass is $11 per adult. The sunflower fields were so pretty! Below is a gallery of some of the photos we took while at Eckert’s!
