Perfect Peach Cobbler

    1 hour

    Peach cobbler is at its best when you use fresh peaches, but if they are out of season you can get away with tinned. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.

    6. Return cobbler to oven and bake 25 to 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown.

    Excellent! I took others advice and doubled the topping mix - glad I did because it's very good. I also used 5 big fresh peaches and baked in a 9" x 13" glass pan for 25 minutes.  -  04 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Needed more peaches than recipe called for. Also, I thought the dough recipe was a little too plain so I sprinkled the tops with cinnamon and sugar before baking. Better with ice cream.  -  31 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this for my in-laws and they just loved it!! I prepped all the dry ingredients and cut up the peaches prior to dinner. This made for quick preparation once the dinner dishes were done! The cobbler part wasn't doughy at all and I added a little bit of cinnamon for a little extra kick! We put a little vanilla ice cream on it and it was heaven!  -  21 Aug 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
