Magic Peach Cobbler

September 21, 2014Teresa

Magic Peach Cobbler sure is magical. No kidding. If we’re talking baseball, this recipe is not merely a home run–it’s a GRAND SLAM! Magical, indeed. The crust topping bakes up so wonderfully that all you want to do is keep eating. Magic Peach Cobbler has peaches on the bottom, then a crust is spooned on top, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and then boiling water is poured over top before baking. The crust transforms while baking and rises to the top like magic and the flavor is absolutely awesome.

I tried many different Peach Cobbler recipes with our peaches this year including my favorite Double Crust Peach Cobbler, Tennessee Peach Pudding, Peach Cobbler with Praline Filling, Easy Peach Cobbler , Mom’s Peach Cobbler, Gluten Free Peach Surprise and even Paula Deen’s Peach Cobbler. Without exception, all were fantastic, but Magic Peach Cobbler was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I loved this stuff and will certainly put it on our menu regularly for Peach Cobblers in the future.

I was down to the last few cups of peaches left for baking and I had some friends in our Sunday school class ask me if I would help make some Peach Pies or Peach Cobblers for their daughter’s wedding next summer. Their future son-in-law doesn’t like cake but he loves pie and cobbler, and coming from Georgia, he especially loves Peach Pies and Peach Cobblers. They wanted some samples of my cooking to get an idea of what to ask for. So I sent them a couple of cobblers. Magic Peach Cobbler was the one they raved about.

I agreed with them, it was certainly one of the best cobblers I’ve ever eaten, plus it’s really fairly simple to assemble. I love my Double Crust Peach Cobbler recipe but it really is a bit more work rolling out two pie crusts – and since I make this in a huge baking dish it’s a lot more effort than Magic Peach Cobbler. If I end up making some cobbler recipes for her daughter’s wedding, I’m pretty sure Magic Peach Cobbler will be on the menu. They want a simple wedding with foods they enjoy and they loved this dessert.

If you’re looking for easy, if you’re looking for delicious, if you’re looking for a peachy dessert, and if you’re looking for magical, you’ve come to the right place. Magic Peach Cobbler is the cobbler for you! I recommend getting yourself to the store ASAP and get peaches while you still can and then make up a batch of Magic Peach Cobbler for your next meal! Seriously, it is REALLY that good.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Your friends and family will be licking the dish before you can blink your eye. 🙂

    Hi! How long would this batter be good, uncooked, in the fridge?

    1. Teresa

      August 7, 2019 at 8:12 am

      Hi, Sarah. I would not leave it more than 24 hours in the refrigerator. It would be better to bake the dessert, then freeze it and then thaw before serving (and maybe warm up a few minutes in the oven). Or you could prepare it and freeze before baking. Then defrost a day or so in the refrigerator before baking.

      Hi, Alyssa. Absolutely. This is one of my favorite peach cobbler recipes. It just turns out awesome. I would probably tent the cobbler with foil to warm up so the crust doesn’t get too brown.

    I just wanted to thank you for this recipe. I made it this morning and it is going to be a staple. Can u use the batter with any fruit ? Blueberries apples?

    1. Teresa

      August 24, 2018 at 3:57 pm

      Hey, Cher. I just made it last week with cherries. It was phenomenal. I skipped the cinnamon and used almond extract instead. I think you can use the cinnamon with either blueberries or apples. I think it would be good with pears, pineapple, plums, strawberries – just about any kind of fruit. So glad you enjoyed the recipe.

    Are the peaches too juicy if not tossed with a little flour or corn starch ?

      August 2, 2015 at 1:33 am

      I tried the recipe today and yes, the peaches were way too juicy. I’ll toss the peaches with cornstarch or flour next time. Loved the crust!

      1. Teresa

        August 4, 2015 at 12:35 pm

        Hey, Summer. Yeah, cornstarch or flour will help them thicken up. Glad you enjoyed it. It was one of our favorite cobblers from last year’s peach season.

      Oh, I’m so glad you enjoyed it Katy. I really liked it too, among all the different recipes I tried last year to use up the peaches from the peaches in our backyard, this was certainly one of my faves. I love the idea of making it with other fruit, too. Got to try that this summer! 🙂 Thanks for letting me know.

      I would certainly try it, Cortney. I would probably sop up some of the moisture with paper towels, otherwise it may get too juicy and change the texture. But I don’t see why you couldn’t substitute canned or frozen peaches. Please let me know what you think. This was one of our favorite peach cobblers this past season – and I tried about 15 different kinds because we have peach trees in our back yard.

      Yes, Debbie, you can, but I would try to pat it dry really well before using so it doesn’t add too much extra moisture to the recipe. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy the cobbler!
