Georgia Peach Cobbler - Veganified!

I had a good friend ask me for a family recipe for peach cobbler over the weekend - since I'm a Georgia peach and all... :) My family has many peach cobbler, peach crumble and peach pie recipes. But this one is a personal favorite - and I have veganified it!

I figured since I'd already written down for my friend, I'd share it for Vegan MoFo too! I didn't make the cobbler this weekend - so the picture below is of Paula Deen's Southern Peach Cobbler. But mine looks pretty much identical.

You can easily half this recipe if you aren't feeding an entire gang of folks... like we always did at my childhood home. Or you can also freeze it. It freezes beautifully!

Ingredients:
  • 8 cups peeled and sliced peaches 
  • 4 cups sugar (divided in half) 
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice (very important - gives it an amazing flavor) 
  • 3/4 cup water 
  • 1 cup vegan butter 
  • 3 cups self rising flour (also very important - regular flour will NOT produce a proper crust for this recipe!)
  • 3 cups milk substitute of your choice (I like So Delicious Vanilla Coconut Milk - the vanilla enhances the flavors in the cobbler beautifully)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon - or to taste 
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

Directions:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Put the butter in a 6-8 quart casserole dish, then put the baking dish in the oven to melt while your doing the next step... 
  3. Combine the peaches, lemon juice, water and half the sugar in a sauce pan and let it come to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes and remove from heat. 
  4. Mix together remaining sugar, flour and milk and pour in the baking dish over the melted butter. Don't stir it... 
  5. Pour your peach mixture over that. Spread evenly - but try not to stir it around too much. 
  6. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon and a tablespoon of  brown sugar.. 
  7. Place in 350 degree oven and bake for 45 minutes or until golden. The batter will rise to the top while it bakes. It's ready when you can stick a toothpick in the center and it comes out with no uncooked batter on it. Watch it very closely at the end - the cooking time is key.
Serve hot with So Delicious vanilla ice cream - or your favorite ice cream substitute. Yum!

  1. This is gorgeous! I love cobblers like nobody's business.

    Question -- how do you know if you flour is self-rising? I have tons of flour on hand--I have a bread making via bread maker addiction--but none specifically say "self-rising".

  2. Depending on which part of the world you live in JL - it CAN be difficult to find. In America it's pretty easy to find - it will be right next to the regular flours but it will specifically say "Self Rising Flour" on the package. In Canada it can be a bit trickier to locate...
