With its indulgent buttery crust and loads of ripe peaches, it’s no wonder why this simple summer dessert is a Southern favorite.
5 peaches (about 1½ lb.)
2 Tbsp. dark brown sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
½ tsp. ground mace
2 cups granulated sugar, divided
1 cup unsalted butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups whole milk
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
Place a rack in middle of oven; preheat to 375°.
Peel skins from 2 peaches. Halve and remove pits from all of the peaches. Slice ¼" thick.
Transfer peaches to a large bowl; add brown sugar, cinnamon, mace, and ¼ cup granulated sugar and toss to combine. Let sit while you prepare the topping (at least 20 minutes).
Cook butter in a small skillet over medium heat, stirring often, until it foams, then browns, 5–7 minutes. Pour brown butter into a 13x9" baking dish.
Whisk flour, baking powder, salt, and remaining 1¾ cups sugar in a medium bowl. Whisk in milk and vanilla, then pour batter into baking dish by the ladleful so butter swirls and mixes into batter. Top with peaches.
Bake cobbler until golden brown and bubbling around the edges, about 1 hour. Let cool slightly before serving.
Wallace's is a great place to visit even if you're not looking to stock up on gardening supplies. It's beautiful inside and out, with some space dedicated to inside decor and jewelry, and tons more to the beautification of your patio, lawn, and garden. I went there on a mission to find my mom a succulent and a tiger lily for Mother's Day and we were all thrilled with the results, so much so that I returned make an identical purchase for my grandmother!
