The Best Peach Cobbler You Will Ever Eat

Here is the recipe for the best southern peach cobbler I have ever eaten in my life. Yes it really is that good. And yes I strongly suggest you have vanilla ice cream around to serve with the best southern peach cobbler you will ever eat.

You have not truly lived until you have hot from the oven peach cobbler served with vanilla ice cream. It truly is one of the best tasting combination's you will ever put into your mouth.

The city water tower at Gafney South Carolina is shaped and colored just like a giant peach and its really hard for me to wait every year until the South Carolina peaches get ready and they start selling them in the produce stands around Gafney South Carolina.When ever I get close enough to Gafney South Carolina to see that water tower made to look like a giant peach I start thinking about southern peach cobbler and good its going to taste hot from the oven with the vanilla ice cream melting on top of it.

And when those peaches are ready the first thing that comes to my mind is a good old fashioned southern peach cobbler hot from the oven and I just have to have vanilla ice cream to serve on top of it as soon as it comes out of the oven. Have you ever tried a hot from the oven southern peach cobbler with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream served on top of it.

And when you make a southern peach cobbler you want ripe peaches. And ripe peaches give slightly when you squeeze them. They are never hard to the touch. If they are trying to sell you hard peaches you don't want them. A ripe peach should be slightly soft and really juicy. The juice in fact from a ripe peach should run down your chin while your eating it.

And to me southern peach cobbler is nowhere with out cinnamon. Again buy fresh cinnamon. Don't use that container of cinnamon that's been in the cabinet since last year. When your baking always use real butter and use only freshly bought spices. When ever I can I buy fresh spices but unfortunately you can't purchase and grind your own cinnamon so be sure you have a fresh container of cinnamon.

For Your Southern Peach Cobbler You Will Need.

1. 8 Cups Peeled And Cut Up Peaches.

2. 4 Cups Of Granulated White Sugar Divided In Half.

3. 1 Cup Of Water.

4. 1 Cup Real Butter.

5. 3 Cups Self Rising Flour.

6. 3 Cups Whole Milk.

7. Cinnamon To Taste.

You want to start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Now combine the peaches , half the sugar and the water in a saucepan and let it come to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes and remove from the heat.

Put the butter in a 6 - 8 quart casserole dish and place in the hot oven to allow it to melt.

Now you want to mix the remaining sugar , flour , and milk and pour it into the casserole dish on top of the melted butter. Pour your cooked peaches on top of this and spread them around evenly.

Sprinkle the top with cinnamon. Now here's the trick to this southern peach cobbler. The batter will rise to the top while the southern peach cobbler cooks in the oven for 30 - 45 minutes. As soon as you can stick a toothpick in the center and you can not see any raw batter on the tooth pick your southern peach cobbler is done.

You will want to serve your southern peach cobbler in dessert dishes topped with vanilla ice cream as soon as the cobbler comes out of the oven. And I guarantee you that as soon as you taste this delicious southern peach cobbler you will agree that it is the best southern peach cobbler you have ever tasted.

I hope if you make this southern peach cobbler that you will post a comment and let us all know how the southern peach cobbler turned out for you.

      I have tried a combination of sugars but I prefer the brown sugar and cinnamon in Peach Cobblers. Thanks for the comment.

      We'll have to try this out. I've seen some cobbler recipes mention brown sugar with white sugar--any opinion on that?
