The Peach Cobbler is one of the simplest dessert recipes, yet one of the tastiest available, especially in the summer when fresh peaches are all around, begging to be part of a delicious cobbler!
However, the cobbler can be cooked also in the winter, but with apples or blackberries (see the variations in the Tips & Tricks, at the recipe end)
This is a traditional, light sweetened, natural-juiced and delicate flavoured peach cobbler perfectly served cold as a great summer meal conclusion, or maybe served on its own, warmed and topped with generous amount of ice cream!

Peach Cobbler Recipe Instructions
Preheat the oven to 200 Celsius degrees or 400 Fahrenheit degrees and butter a large enough baking casserole
Peel and pit the peaches, then slice them in thin wedges
Toss the peach wedges with the sugar and the lemon juice and arrange them in a layer into the baking dish; then set aside
In a large enough mixing bowl add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt and combine them well
Add the butter (chilled!) and mix the dough with your fingers until it starts looking like a coarse cornmeal
Stir in the milk a little at a time and combine to make a soft dough (use a spoon for this)
Spoon the dough over the peaches in the casserole and bake for 25-35 minutes or until the dough surface turn golden and the peaches are tender
Peach Cobbler Recipe Tips & Tricks
The peach cobbler fits very well for cooking in advance. Just serve it chilled if you like, or spray it with a small amount of water and heat it in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes; it will come out as if it's baked just right then, making it a really nice surprise for everyone!
Need to bake a peach cobbler but can't find fresh peaches? No problem, just use canned peaches instead. Just drain them 10 minutes before making the cobbler, then use them as they were fresh; and if they are too dry just add a part of the juice previously drained.
Also don't settle for just a peach cobbler; replace the peaches with canned apples or with blackberries; actually *any* fruit combination will do, like this simple, 1 frozen fruits package cobbler recipe done in 4 steps!
