It is peach season here in Texas! Well, technically, the end of peach season. Peach season is 4 months long in Texas, from May to August. I saw the most amazing Texas peaches at the market. I thought, “Hey, I am going to make my family a peach cobbler”. My family loves it when I make dessert. It is rare, I must admit. They sometimes say, “Okay, mom, what is wrong with you? You know you are making a dessert, right.” They are not wrong! I don’t make desserts like I used to. Life is so busy with designing beautiful spaces for my amazing clients and shuttling the kiddos around from here to there. Dessert is the last thing on my mind. I am just really trying to keep up!
Well, recently, I stumbled upon a peach cobbler recipe that Elin Hilderbrand posted in her IG stories. She is also one of my favorite authors(check out my favorite reads on my IG highlights). The peach cobbler looked so good I had to try it! The original recipe is from the cookbook A Boat, a Whale & a Walrus: Menus and Stories by Renee Erickson. I was instantly hooked! It looked so easy. Easy is key!
I did change it to suit my taste since I do not like super sweet things. I always will find a way to cut the sugar if I can. Here is the original recipe for reference. Here is what I changed. Instead of whole milk, I used heavy cream. I feel it gives it more depth. I took out a half cup of sugar from the cake mix, and I add 15 peaches instead of 10. The peaches will cook down. I like alot of fruit. The changes I made are in the recipe below.
Voila, an end-of-summer dessert that my family loved! It is so good and super easy to make. It is even better the next day! It sure did not last long in our house. Hope you enjoy this peach cobbler recipe as much as my family did!
