Sourdough Peach Cobbler

The hubs loves peach cobbler and said this was a good one.

Me? I’ll choose chocolate every time over a fruity dessert. But I love him so I make him peach cobbler. Occasionally.


3 pounds whole ripe peaches

1/2 cup sugar

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon corn starch


1/2 cup flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

5 tablespoons cold butter, cut into chunks

1 cups sourdough discard

2 tablespoon butter, melted

2 tablespoons sugar

1 Heat oven to 375.

2 For the fruit layer, wash and slice peaches into thin slices. Place slices in a bowl and add sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla, Mix well. (Taste now and add more sugar if desired.) Stir in corn starch. Spread peach mixture into bottom of a 9 x 9″ pan.

3 For the biscuit layer, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry cutter or 2 knives, cut butter into flour mixture until largest butter pieces are the size of almonds. Stir in sourdough starter.

4 Drop spoonfuls of sourdough mixture over the top of the fruit layer, leaving some space around the edges for steam to escape. Drizzle the melted butter over the top then sprinkle with sugar.

5 Bake 35 – 45 minutes or until biscuit layer is golden brown around the edges.

  1. It was delicious and I think I ate the entire pan with some delicious Tillamook Old-fashioned Vaniila Ice Cream. Not all at once of course, but I could have. I picked a bad week to start dieting. Thank you Penny!!!
