Fresh Peach Cobbler



Ripe juicy peaches with spicy cinnamon and a 
buttery cobbler crust,
baked until golden brown and delicious ~
who doesn’t like a sweet treat now and then...


Here, we all like fresh peaches and I was happy to see ripe white peaches at the farmers’ market the other day.  

Peach cobbler is a classic summer dessert.  What’s interesting though, is that according to who you ask, cobbler is described differently.  Many say cobbler is like a pie, with the crust over the fruit,  some say it’s like a crisp with a crunchy brown sugar topping, while others say it’s made of biscuits floating over the fruity filling.

I finally found a sugar replacement that's great, Swerve Sweetener.   It's a “natural” carb-free, calorie-free blend that comes in granular and confectioners’ sugar forms, and measures cup for cup with sugar, making it easy to substitute in recipes. 


But the best part is that Swerve holds up well when baked and does not have an aftertaste as do most sugar substitutes.  It is ideal for baking as it caramelizes and holds its shape like sugar. 

Peach cobbler is the essence of summer for me.  Mom made more than her share of peach cobbler and blackberry cobbler too while I was growing up.  Summer would not be complete without a cobbler or two or three. 

This is a humble recipe with peaches, some sort of sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice, lemon zest and a cup of flower and a little cornstarch.  

Ready to bake
Voila!  Baked!

Basic simple ingredients baked into unbelievable results, a little crunchy on top and super soft, and juicy on the inside.

You can easily substitute fresh blackberries, cherries, or your favorite fruit  for the peaches. 

The taste of this cobbler is so good, it’s absolutely delicious, we love it!

  2. Peaches bring us the flavors of summer whether fresh or in a cobbler.
    Your 'humble' recipe looks delicious; the cobbler can be eaten cold or hot and is the family's favorite.

  8. There's a rumor that the MIchigan peach crop was ruined by the Polar Vortex last winter, and I'm really worried about that. All the good peach desserts -- especially pie & cobbler -- need really good local peaches that were too ripe to travel. I'd love a bite of yours!

    1. Hi Mae! Yes, I'm sure the same is true here, not expecting the best for local fruit and veggies. Michigan peaches are great, I've had my share of them and was hoping to see some at the market soon. Thanks and take care.

  9. Absolutely delicious! Nothing beats peaches and few things beat cobbler- as long as it's not something inherently against nature like "blueberry cobbler"!

    1. Thanks, Son! I'd love some blueberry cobbler, doubt if I ever make it though, due to dislike by a few of you. So peach and blackberry will do, perfectly delicious!!! Love...
