Gathering Your Ingredients And Supplies

Now, it’s time to grab all the goodies you’ll need to whip up this scrumptious peach cobbler with canned peaches!

First, head to your pantry and make sure you have all the necessary ingredients.

You’ll need:

  • 1 can of peaches
  • 1 cup (0.24 l) flour
  • 1 cup (0.24 l) sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt,
  • Milk
  • Butter

Make sure you also have a mixing bowl, measuring cups and spoons, a baking dish, and a spatula.

Once you have all your ingredients and supplies, it’s time to start prepping for the cobbler. Preheat your oven to 350 °F and grease your baking dish.

Drain the canned peaches and set them aside. In your mixing bowl, combine:

  • 1 cup (0.24 l) of flour
  • 1 cup (0.24 l) of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt

Mix these dry ingredients together well before adding in:

  • 1 cup (0.24 l) of milk
  • 1/2 cup of melted butter

Stir everything together until it is smooth and no lumps remain.

Preparing The Peaches

To prepare the peaches you’ll need to drain the syrup from the can and give them a good rinse under cold water.

This step is important because it helps to remove any excess sugar or syrup that may have been added to the can.

Once you’ve drained and rinsed the peaches, place them in a large bowl and use a fork to gently mash them up.

You don’t want to completely purée them, just break them down a bit so that they’re easier to work with.

Next, it’s time to add some flavor to your peaches. In a small bowl, mix together sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.

Sprinkle this mixture over the mashed peaches and stir everything together until the peaches are evenly coated.

This step is important because it helps to enhance the natural sweetness of the peaches and gives them a warm, cozy flavor that’s perfect for cobbler.

Assembling And Baking The Cobbler

Next, pour prepared batter from earlier. Once you’ve layered the peach mixture and the batter, simply pop it in the oven and let it bake until it’s a mouth-watering golden brown.

Make sure the cobbler is in a preheated oven set to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (ca. 191 °C). Bake for 45–50 minutes until the cobbler is bubbling, and the top is golden brown.

After removing the cobbler from the oven, let it cool for about 10–15 minutes before serving. This will give the cobbler time to set and make it easier to serve.

Serving And Enjoying Your Delicious Dessert

For those who prefer a crunchy topping, you can sprinkle some chopped pecans or almonds on top of the cobbler before serving.
