Breakfast Food Friday – Peach Cobbler

With the tuna noodle casserole I made Sunday night, I served peach cobbler for dessert.  This is a recipe I wrote on an index card several summers ago, made a few tweaks, and I’ve never looked for another one since. 

A trick that makes this even easier – to remove the skin from the peaches, dunk them (individually) into a pot of boiling water for 30 seconds, then in to an ice bath for 30 seconds – and peel away!

This incredibly simple recipe lets the peaches take center stage.  The simple biscuit dough makes just enough to almost cover the peaches in a 10″ round baking dish.

I always thought it was best right out of the oven, warm, with vanilla ice cream…

(Adam’s serving size, obviously)

But this time I topped my serving with blended peach Chobani, and it was heavenly – and totally appropriate for breakfast.

Light Peach Cobbler
Ingredients (8 servings)

  • 5-6 peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup AP flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons light buttery spread
  • 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk


Pre-heat oven to 375.

In a medium sauce pan, combine peaches, 1/4 cup sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch, and cinnamon.

Heat until the mixture starts to bubble, stirring until thickened. Remove from heat.

Pour peaches in to a greased baking dish.

Combine flour, baking powder, remaining sugar, and salt, mixing well.

Using two forks, work butter in to flour mixture until small crumbs form.

Add milk to flour/butter mixture, and stir just until incorporated.

Drop batter in large spoonfuls on top of peaches.

Bake for 22-24 minutes, until top browns and peaches are bubbly.
