So today I will show you how to make a Super Crispy Crust Peach Cobbler. Its supper simple and take less that 20 minutes to prepare and then bake for 45 minutes.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Lets Get Started
You will need to set your oven to 375° and have it preheating while you start preparing the cobbler. Listed below are all the items you will need to make the best cobbler you ever tasted.
- Peaches of course (8 fresh peaches if possible but 6 cans of peaches works fine too)
- 1 Lemon
- Sugar (LOTS)
- Brown Sugar
- Self Rising Flour
- Whole Milk
- Salted Butter (real butter) (REAL BUTTER) :)
- Glass Baking Dish (I used two glass pie dishes)
- Water in a Spray Bottle
Step 2: Elbow Grease Required
Lets get started.
- First you will need 1 stick of room temperature butter, you can microwave it for about 20 seconds if its been in the fridge.
- Next add 1 1/4 cups of granulated sugar to the butter
- Take a wooden spoon and mead the sugar into the butter. It will take a few minutes but when it ready it will look like butter colored play dough. Make sure you get all the excess form the sides mixed in.
Step 3: Add in Some More Stuff
Next you add in
- 1/3 cup of oats
- 1/3 cup of brown sugar
- 1 1/3 cup of self rising flour
Step 4: Mixing It Up!
Now just mix these items up the same as before. It will take a few minutes to work it all together. Your end result will slightly look like bread crumbs.
Step 5: Almost Done With Crust
Now we will add 2/3 cups of milk.
And toss the spoon in the sink and get out a blender! This gets the batter mixed far better than by hand.
It will look like thick pancake batter when its ready.
Step 6: PEACHES!
So, its October and Fresh peaches were I live are EXPENSIVE. So... Canned peaches it is. I used 6 cans of peaches. I put them in a strainer and let that sit for a few minutes to drain as much of the juice off as possible. Then pour them out even in your glass dish. remember to leave room for your batter.
Step 7: Trust Me on This...
Next you will need to take the lemon and zest it on the peaches. I'm using a smaller dish so it take 1/2 lemon. Then slip the lemon in have and squeeze the juices over the peaches also. This will add a slight tart taste to the cobbler so its not too sweet. Trust me.. This is what sets the desert apart from most!
Step 8: Getting Close!
Pour the batter over your peaches. Doesn't have to be perfect just a nice even layer.
Next pour sugar over the top of the batter. I used about 1 1/4 cups. Be generous here, this is what will make the crust super crispy and flaky.
Step 9: Playing With Water
Now, time for that water mister! Mist the sugar until it is inundated with water. My wife say (until it looks shiney.)
Step 10: NOM NOM NOM
Place your cobbles in the oven. I put a cookie sheet on the rack below the cobbler just in case some bubbles over. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the crust is crunchy. Drag a for or spoon over top to check.
Set on counter for 10 minutes to cool and then ENJOY! VANILLA ICE CREAM OPTIONAL BUT NOT NEEDED!
