Do I have to use fresh peaches in this dump peach cobbler?
Nothing makes me happier than getting fresh peaches in June and July! That’s the only time our family eats peaches each year. We can’t buy them from Walmart or the grocery store, because they taste NOTHING like what a peach is supposed to taste like.
I remember the first time my daughter had a real, locally grown peach, and she said, “This is the best peach I’ve ever had!” Then when she just had to have peaches, when they were out of season, and begged for them from Walmart, she was incredibly disappointed that they tasted nothing like what she thought a peach should taste like.
So, that being said, you can use canned or frozen (thaw them first) peaches if you want, but it won’t taste the same as locally grown fresh peaches. I say the same for my Old Fashioned Peach Dumplings too (P.S. you should definitely make those – wow, they’re good!!!)
How to Make Dump Peach Cobbler
- Peel and slice 7-8 peaches.
- Cover them in cinnamon and sugar and set aside.
- Melt the butter and pour it in the bottom of your baking pan.
- Make the batter and pour it on top of the butter.
- Spoon the peaches on top of the batter.
- Bake for 45 mins, or until the edges start to pull away from the pan and turn golden brown.
So the biggest pain in the butt about this recipe, is having to manually peel and slice the peaches. It’s really not that bad, but the rest of the recipe is so simple that it makes it seem worse than it is. But really, it’s absolutely worth it, so I do it every year.
Your slices should be very thin. Toss these slices with your cinnamon and sugar, and you’ve done the hardest part of this whole peach cobbler recipe.
This is what the peach cobbler will look like right before it goes into the oven. I know it looks like a mess, but it turns out beautifully. I’ve been making this recipe for years, and every time it looks like this, and every time I wonder if it will turn out right, and every time it does.
Doesn’t this peach cobbler look amazing? I can’t wait to make it again! Make summer official with this dump peach cobbler recipe in your oven tonight!
