INGREDIENTS

  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 ½ cups peaches, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Cobbler Topping Ingredients

  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 ½ teaspoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons milk
slicing peaches
No need to remove the skin for this recipe. Simply slice the peaches into even sections and add them to the saucepan.

INSTRUCTIONS

The first step in making peach cobbler for two is to preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Then gather a small 2 cup baking dish or two, one cup ramekins.

There is no need to spray the inside of the baking dish. Both the filling and cobbler topping have butter as one of the ingredients that will help prevent it from sticking.

Next, slice the peach into thin, 1/4 inch slices. You can also dice the peaches if you prefer. However, the important thing is to slice or cut the peaches in uniform sizes.

This will allow the peaches to cook evenly when placed in the oven. Set the prepared peaches aside and prepare the filling.

In a small saucepan add the brown sugar, cornstarch, and water. Stir and place over medium heat.

Continue to stir and cook until the mixture is clear and the brown sugar has melted. Then add the sliced peaches to the liquid.

Increase the heat to medium high and bring the mixture to a boil. Once it reaches a full boil continue to cook, stirring constantly for 2 minutes.

Now add the butter and lemon juice to the mixture with the peaches and let it continue to boil for another 2 minutes. Then transfer the peach cobbler for two filling into the prepared 2 cup baking dish or divide the mixture evenly between the two ramekins.

boiling peaches
Allow the peach filling enough time to boil so that the sauce is nice and thick.

Cobbler Topping

Set the baking dish aside while you prepare the topping. In a medium size bowl add the flour, white sugar, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon.

Whisk the dry ingredients together until well incorporated. Pour in the melted butter and milk and mix until well combined.

Pour the topping over the peach mixture. If you are using two ramekins instead of the single baking dish, evenly divide the topping among the two dishes.

After you pour the cobbler topping on top of the peach filling, let it spread until it reaches the sides of the dish. Some exposed peaches are okay, however, you want most of the cobbler topping to cover the filling.

Place the baking dish in the preheated oven. Then bake for 25 minutes or until the topping turns golden brown.

Once the peach cobbler for two is golden brown and bubbly around the sides, remove the baking dish from the oven and let it sit for several minutes before serving.

cake like topping
After you spread the cobbler topping over the peaches, you can opt to add more cinnamon if you desire.

The time that it sits will allow the filling to thicken up and cool down. This wait time is important as it will make it easier to eat, while at the same time prevent you from scalding your mouth once you bite into the hot filling.

As the cobbler rests, grab the vanilla ice cream out of the freezer. Then when you are ready to serve, scoop some ice cream on top of the peach cobbler and enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can I use canned peaches instead?

If fresh peaches aren’t in season when you want to make peach cobbler for two, you can use canned peaches instead. Simply drain the peaches and measure out 1 1/2 cups of the reserved canned peaches.

However, be sure to spray the inside of the baking dish or ramekins with non-stick cooking spray or melted butter to prevent the filling from sticking to inside of the dish. Then proceed with the topping and baking instructions.

2. Can I use frozen peaches?

You can also use frozen peaches in place of fresh peaches in this recipe. However, be sure to thaw them first.

You may need to increase the amount of cornstarch for the filling to thicken properly, depending on how much liquid the frozen peaches contain when thawed.

Proceed with the remaining recipe as written.

baked peach cobbler
Once the topping is golden brown, remove it from the oven and let it sit so that the filling has time to cool and thicken a bit.

3. How do I store any leftover peach cobbler?

Although it is unlikely that you will have leftovers, if you do, cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can eat the peach cobbler for two cold, or you could warm it up in the oven set at 350°F (177°C) for 10 minutes.
