Every great meal needs a great ending, right? We’re going to conclude our soul food week with one of the yummiest desserts that’s most closely associated with Southern cooking; peach cobbler. Not only is this cobbler super easy to put together, but the end results are so impressive that anyone you serve it to will think you spent all day making it!
We made the cobbler found over at Samantha’s Novel Eats blog and loved it so much, we had to ask her if we could share it with you. She agreed, and so, you lucked out! While it’s a little late for peach season, we found this cobbler bakes up just great using frozen peaches, so it’s an authentic treat you can enjoy year round.

1/2 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
4 cup sliced peaches (fresh is best but frozen works fine)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 cup Earth Balance® Soymilk
3 tablespoons Earth Balance® Natural Buttery Spread
Heat oven to 400F. Mix 1/2 cup sugar, the cornstarch and cinnamon in a 2-quart saucepan. Stir in the peaches and lemon juice. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir for one minute. Pour into an ungreased 2-quart casserole.
Mix together the rest of the dry ingredients, then cut in the Earth Balance® Natural Buttery Spread until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in the Earth Balance® Soymilk. Drop dough by six spoonful’s (more or less) onto hot peach mixture. Bake until topping is golden brown -about 25-30 minutes.
A note from the chef:
“I’ll be honest and tell you I was very afraid of that batter. It seemed way too runny to me and I was very tempted to add more flour to it, but I decided against it just to see if I was wrong. I was! The batter basically turned into little lumps of biscuits and it was an excellent complement to the sweet, warm peaches below.”
