Expert Baking Tips for making this peach cobbler in cast iron skillet

Although this vegan gluten free peach cobbler recipe is super easy, here are just a few expert tips i’d recommend:

  • Make sure your vegan block butter is at room temperature before rubbing it into the crumble.
  • Make sure to brown the butter first before adding in the peaches, this will add a nutty depth of flavor to the cobbler
  • Add the milk a little at a time to the crumble top, to stop it becoming sticky.

Ingredients for peach cobbler

Here’s everything I used to make this peach cobbler for one

recipe for vegan peach cobbler
  • Brown Sugar – I used soft brown sugar – this retains moisture making the crumble topping spread less. [PRO TIP – If you dont have brown sugar mix in ½ tbsp of molasses to some refined sugar]
  • Vegan butter – this can be block butter or spreadable butter. 
  • Plain flour – If you’re making it gluten free as I did make sure to add ¼ tsp of xanthan gum to add some extra stability to the crumble top.
  • Canned peaches – canned peaches I found were the most convenient as they’re already pitted and skinned, but you can also make this peach cobbler fresh peaches.
  • Cinnamon – Helps add sweetness and warmth to the cobbler.

Equipment

For this recipe you do require a skillet. I used this 6.5 inch cast Iron Skillet by Victoria. They also offer skillets in a range of different sizes and they’re extremely durable and easy to use and clean! And it’s the perfect dish to bake so many delicious desserts and comfort food like this Vegan Cookie Dough.

FAQ’s

Can you make peach cobbler without milk ?

Yes! If you didn’t want to use milk either normal or plant based water will work well to bind the crumble topping

Can peach cobbler be made ahead of time ?

Yes, however, I wouldn’t recommend making it more than a day in advance. And before digging it pop it in the oven for 5-10 mins to reheat.

Can you make peach cobbler without cinnamon ?

Yes, however, i would highly recommend adding it as it will add a sweet warmth to your cobbler. Ginger and all spice would also be great additions.

Is peach cobbler supposed to be runny ?

No, you might find your cobbler will have a little syrup at the bottom of your peaches a bit like a caramel but there shouldn’t be too much of that to make it runny. It should be scoopable.

Can you make peach cobbler without sugar ?

Yes, if you’d prefer to make this cobbler refined sugar free then simply substitute the light brown sugar for 6tbsp of maple syrup/honey

How long does peach cobbler last ?

Or more specifically – How long can peach cobbler last in the fridge ? Peach cobbler can last up to 5days if completely covered in the fridge.

Can peach cobbler be frozen ?

Yes, it can be frozen for up to 3months! However, your crumble topping will likely become soggy, so when you remove it from the freezer, allow it to completely defrost and bake it for 20mins to create a golden crisp top.

Can I make peach cobbler without baking powder  ?

Yes, you don’t necessarily have to add baking powder to your crumble top but it does allow the crumble to rise slightly creating more depth to the cobbler, but would taste delicious without it, if you’d prefer.
