Sheri Castle’s Easy Peach Cobbler


Ingredients: Yield: 8 – 12 servings

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 cups fresh or thawed peach slices
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.  Place butter in a 13 by 9 inch baking dish, and place it in the oven long enough to melt the butter.
  • Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.  Add milk and stir until the dry ingredients are moistened.
  • Pour batter into baking dish, don’t stir as the cobbler’s texture should be cakelike.
  • Stir the remaining 1 cup sugar, peach slices, lemon juice and zest, and extract in a large saucepan.  Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly.  Pour over the batter, do not stir.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes

Serve with warm vanilla bean ice cream.

  1. Ok,so I have tried your recipe, but I didn’t have any almond extract.I just used some pure vanilla extract, and substituted the lemon zest for a little ginger as it can give certain foods a gentle lemony tangy flavor,plus I used fresh lemon juice which is ripe with lemon smell and flavor.I do like alittle cinnamon and nutmeg for my peaches in a cobbler.Overall,this is an easy “made from scratch”recipe,and the dough baked up to have a nice texture and crust that I like for this peach cobbler. Hope some of these suggestions are helpful to whomever may like their cobbler like me,and thanks PotLuckyCom for some love and comfort in this pot!


    1. Your substitutions to the peach cobbler are delightful. I will share your variation to my readers, especially those who may enjoy a twist of ginger. The people who may have nut allergies may love the vanilla extract substitution.
