Easy Peach Cobbler with Steel Cut Oats Topping


If you ever get the chance to try Chilton County peaches from Alabama, you’ll relish in their fabulous juicy fresh taste. We had a basket of fresh peaches so I decided to make a simple cobbler with ingredients I had on hand. I love oatmeal in my cobbler toppings, but all I had was steel cut oats. It worked great! Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for an added touch.

  1. At last – a recipe for steel cut oats that is not the made in a crockpot (for breakfast). I’ll use this with apples, which should work just as well.

  2. Will definitely try! I have apples, so this recipe will hopefully work just as well. Instead of steel cut oats, will using instant oatmeal make a difference, however?

  3. The cobbler part of this recipe turned out pretty badly for me. Weird, doughy texture. The peaches were good, but I would look for a different cobbler recipe.

  4. Agree with Jen, peaches were good, but topping was bad. Husband and kids didn’t like. Too much flour, needed more sugar. Was the sugar listed for the peaches and the sugar listed for the topping reversed? I would add equal sugar and flour and cut in the butter for the topping next time. Or stick with my tried and true cobbler topping for Better Homes and Gardens.
