Georgia Peach Cobbler Recipe UK

Our Georgia Peach Cobbler tops stewed fruit with a scone-like dough for a quick and delicious fruit dessert. It is one of our best cobbler recipes.

This cobbler shouldn’t be confused with its cousins the crumble and the fruit crisp. To be pedantic, our recipe is a “slump” straight out of the South as we used our favourite recipe from my aunt in Kentucky. A “slump” is a cobbler that doesn’t have a uniform shape. It “slumps” as it is placed on the plate.

We would serve this with clotted cream but on the day we were cooking, we happened to be out. Ice cream or whipped cream is also a good choice but we aren’t fans of custard..

Fruit Variations

The fruit for cobbler is your choice – the most well known is, of course, peach cobbler but we love it with nectarines and brown sugar.

You can do rhubarb and strawberry, peach, blueberry, raspberry or cherry. You can even use canned pie filling if you need something quick.

If you are using fresh fruit – like cherry or rhubarb – just add a bit of water and sugar and cook your fruit down to a lumpy syrup before topping and baking.
