How to Make Fresh Peach Cobbler in a Crockpot
Peach Cobbler Ingredients
2 pounds ripe but firm peaches (halved, pitted, and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices)
3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cups rolled oats
4 tablespoons unsalted butter and more for coating the Crock Pot at room temperature)
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground allspice
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cups dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Peach Cobbler Directions
- Coat the bottom side of your Crock Pot completely with butter. Set aside.
- Take a large bowl and whisk all-purpose flour, oats, spices, baking powder, brown sugar, and salt to mix them with each other. Toss the measured butter into the flour mixture so that it is well coated into flour.
- Use 2 knives or a pastry blender to cut the coated butter into the dry ingredients. Keep cutting for 2 to 3 minutes or until the butter is reduced to pea-size pieces. The mixture will look crumbly.
- Bring in the peach slices to the mixture and mix until everything is well combined. Spread the mixture evenly into a 6-quart Crockpot because a 4-quart is not large enough to cook properly.
- Set the Crockpot over low heat and cook for nearly 3 hours or until the peaches are tender and the crumbled mixture is brown.
- Scoop the peach cobbler into small serving bowls. If you like, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
Fresh Peach Cobbler Tips:
- You can substitute the normal peaches with nectarines. However, it will not make the preparation less sumptuous.
- To prevent the sides of cobbler from getting burned, line the Crockpot with cooking parchment paper.
- Put paper towels under the Crockpot lid to stop dripping condensation from making the dough mushy.
