Aretha Franklin's Peach Cobbler


Hello All,

Welcome back to Food  Flavor Fun.  A place to pick up great food ideas that are full of flavor and a source a of a lot of fun in the kitchen and enjoyment and love to be shared with friends and family.  I missed my Friday blog post so this one is a catch up.  Fridays are all about desserts.  This is one of my absolute favorites.  This is a great peach cobbler recipe.  I don’t even remember where it came from.  If I have to guess, it was from one of Emeril Lagasse’s shows where Aretha Franklin was a guest.  It sounded so good I had to try it.  And man, it was!  This one will kill your diet!  If your watching your calories, you’ll have a few to make up tomorrow.  Don’t forget the vanilla ice cream when you get the ingredients. It is a must!  Enjoy!

Aretha Franklin’s Reach Cobbler


  • 10 (8 1/2 oz.) cans sliced peaches, drained
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, divide 1 stick into small pieces
  • 1 cup sugar, plus 1/4 cup
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 2 store-bought refrigerated pie doughs
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Pam non-stick spray
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream – yeah, like I ever buy just a pint!


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large saucepan, add peaches. 1 stick butter, 1 cup sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Bring to a simmer.  Add bread crumbs and stir.  Let simmer just a minute longer and remove from heat.  Using a sprinkle of flour, roll out the pie crusts.  One will be used for the bottom, the other for the top.

Spray a 10-inch square pan with Pam and place 1 layer of dough into the baking dish. Place a few chips of butter as well as a dusting of the remaining sugar on the bottom crust.  Pour the peach mixture into the baking dish.  Cut the top layer of dough into strips and arrange them on top of the peaches in a lattice-work pattern.  Top with the remaining butter chips and a sprinkle of sugar and cinnamon.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is a golden brown and the peaches are bubbling.  Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  Enjoy!
