I love this cookbook - Smoke & Spice. Many of the intros and some of the comments are so funny. Anyway........

Texans usually like their peach cobblers with an abundance of juicy fruit and a biscuit-like batter topping that's crunchy on the surface and doughy inside.

How to Make Texas Peach Cobbler

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • 2In a bowl, mix together all the fruit filling ingredients.
  • 3Set the fruit aside to draw out the juices while preparing the batter. Cobbler filling should be a bit juicier than most pies.
  • 4Melt the butter in a 9 by 13-inch baking dish, either in the oven or on the stove.
  • 5In another bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, and baking powder and add the milk.
  • 6Mix until lightly blended.
  • 7Spoon the mixture evenly over the melted butter.
  • 8Don't stir it, which eliminates the development of crunchy edges.
  • 9Pour the peach filling evenly over the batter.
  • 10Bake for 45 minutes.
  • 11As the cobbler cooks, the batter oozes up and around the fruit, crowning the cobbler with a moist golden brown crust.
  • 12Serve warm.
  • 13If you're a certified hedonist, top it with ice cream or whipped cream.
  • 14Variation: Blackberry Cobbler
    Make a blackberry cobbler by substituting berries for the peaches and eliminating the ginger. For ourselves, we would also add 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg.
