- Baking Soda
Plus a slow cooker or crockpot. This turns out best in any crock pot larger than 4 quarts.
How to Make Peach Cobbler From Scratch
- To start you are going to need to slice and pit your peaches. You will need about 8 peaches to get 5 cups of sliced fruit. Toss the peaches in a bowl with the brown sugar and set aside.
- In a second bowl mix together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.
- In your crockpot layer in the peach mix and then sprinkle with the flour topping.
- Finally slice your butter into thin squares and spread them out over the top of the flour mix.
Here is a fun trick. Spread some paper towels under the lid so they are sandwiched between the crock and the lid. This will trap any extra moisture and keep the top of your cobbler from getting soggy. Cook on HIGH for 2 ½ hours. Then turn to low for 30 minutes until golden and bubbly.
Mmmm….hello deliciousness! Serve with some ice cream.
I love being able to share adaptations of recipes; especially ones that turn out well. You can simply make this recipe gluten free by substituting your favorite gluten free flour blend in place of the flour. I have been using the King Arthur Gluten Free Flour with great results.
Another substitution you can make is altering this recipe to make it vegan! Just substitute in your favorite vegan margarine in place of the butter. I highly recommend trying the Country Crock Plant Based Butter Sticks. I have had the best luck with those!
When it comes to cooking with in slow cooker size can make a difference. Too big and your food can burn. Too small and it takes too long to cook or doesn’t have the right texture.
Crockpot Cobblers come out amazing in a casserole crockpot. If you don’t have a casserole crockpot reach for your largest slow cooker. This will let the filling and topping have a good ratio, which makes for a tasty cobbler.
- You can use frozen peaches if you don’t have fresh. (Skip the canned for this recipe)
- Experiment with spice. Add a little nutmeg or even some ginger to the mix for a yummy but subtle twist.
- Serve with vanilla ice cream (because OMG! it is so good!)
- Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
