This Southern cobbler is simple to make and will quickly become a new favorite.

This cobbler has an unusual crispy topping which is created by pouring hot water over a batter that has been topped with sugar. The sugar is caramelized as it bakes forming this amazing crispy topping.

This is the type of recipe you’re going to find in a Southern church cookbook. 

You can prep this Southern-style peach cobbler in about 15 minutes thanks to a short ingredient list. It takes even less time if you leave the skins on the peaches.

Some fruit cobblers use cornstarch or flour as a thickener. However, in this recipe, the peaches cook down and release some of the peach juices but most of the liquid is absorbed into the topping.


What I really love is that there is no sugar added to the peaches, just lemon zest and juice.
