Before you can begin learning how to make peach cobbler, you need to assemble the necessary kitchen items and ingredients. Get started with our list.
Now it's time to tackle homemade peach cobbler. Let's dive right into our easy recipe.
Begin by preheating oven to 350 degrees. While it's warming, peel your peaches according to our guide. Be sure to also remove the peach pits then slice the fruit before continuing with our favorite peach cobbler recipe.
Next, heat medium saucepan over medium heat. Add sliced peaches, a pinch of salt, 1/2 cup of white granulated sugar, and 1 tablespoon of coconut sugar. Stir occasionally as you cook for 2-3 minutes. The peaches should release juices and the sugar should begin dissolving. Once this happens, remove from stovetop and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, microwave butter for about 15 seconds depending on your oven. Continue heating in increments of five seconds if not softened completely right away. Then, using the basting brush, coat the baking dish with the melted butter.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk the rest of the sugar (both coconut and white granulated), flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, almond extract, and baking powder together. After evenly mixed, stir in the milk. Then, add mixture to your greased baking dish. With a spatula, smooth into even layer.
Add reduced peaches and syrup to baking dish with a spoon. Make sure to incorporate all the delicious juices, then top with cinnamon and nutmeg.
Bake at 350 degrees for roughly 35 minutes, depending on your oven. If necessary, cook an additional few minutes but be careful not to bake more than forty minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for about ten minutes before serving.
