How To Make Peach Cobbler with Canned Peaches
1. Prep: Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and grease a baking dish generously with butter.
2. Make the peach filling: Combine sugar, flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Add lemon juice and vanilla extract and stir to combine everything together.
3. Prepare the peaches: Add the drained peaches to the bowl and toss them to coat with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Once coated, transfer the peaches to the prepared baking dish and bake for 15 minutes.
4. Make the biscuit dough topping: In the meantime, make the topping. Whisk together the milk and lemon juice in a bowl and set it aside for 5 minutes. Combine the flour, sugar, and baking powder in another bowl. Add the cold butter and work it into the flour with clean fingers until coarse crumbs form. Add the milk mixture and stir until the crumbs are completely moistened.
5. Finish the cobbler: Spread the topping over hot peaches as soon as they come out of the oven. Bake the cobbler for 40 minutes or until the topping has turned golden brown and the cobbler is heated through.
Tips To Make The Best Recipe
- Leave a few pieces of butter in the baking dish when you first cook the peaches for an even better flavor.
- Use a food processor to work the cold butter into the flour mixture to speed up the process.
- Swap the vanilla extract with almond extract to intensify the flavors.
- Serve the peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream, a caramel drizzle, and whipped cream on top.
Storage and Reheating Instructions
In the fridge: If you have some leftover canned peach cobbler, you can store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
In the freezer: If you're freezing leftovers, transfer them to a freezer-safe airtight container and store them for 2-3 months.
Reheating: For the best results, put the leftover cobbler back in a casserole dish and warm it in the oven at 350°F for about 10 minutes. Thaw the frozen peach cobbler in the fridge overnight or add more reheating time.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do you keep peach cobbler from getting soggy?
You'll want to make sure that you fully drain the canned peaches and pat them dry with paper towels. Coating them fully in the sugar mixture will also help keep them from getting soggy.
How long should a peach cobbler sit before eating?
A peach cobbler should sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes to let the sauce thicken up a bit. You can even let it rest in the fridge for a few hours before serving for chilled dessert.
Can I use fresh peaches instead of canned peaches?
Yes, fresh or canned peaches will both work great in this recipe. However, I've found that canned ones work better since they are a little more tender and sweeter.
