It only seemed natural to add it to peach cobbler. I mean seriously, what is there not to love? Fresh peaches, brown butter and cake. You really can’t go wrong with that winning combo.

Peach cobbler has to be one of my all time favorite summertime desserts. It’s a relatively simple dessert and will fill up your home with an amazing, cozy aroma that will no doubt having you standing by the oven impatiently watching the timer until it has finished baking. Remember those old Mervyn’s commercials? Where the lady has her hands on the store windows sayin “open-open”? Basically that’s me except I’m say “hurry-hurry”.

Ps that commercial came out in 1992 😳.

Start by browning up a stick of unsalted butter. If you want a handy-dandy how-to then here is my post on that. If you aren’t up for browning the butter then you can simply melt the butter and stop there.

Next, pour the brown butter into a 9×13 baking dish.

First, slice up 5 cups of ripe peaches leaving the skin on because I’m incredibly lazy for extra fiber.

Once the liquids come to a boil, remove the pan off of the heat and then add in a half teaspoon of vanilla and 1/8 teaspoon of ground cardamom. If you don’t have cardamom on hand you can definitely use ground cinnamon.

Next, grab a heaping spoonful and scatter the peaches with all their juices over top of the top of the batter.

Then, slide the baking dish into a preheated 375° oven and bake for 40 minutes or until golden and bubbly.

Once baked and smelling pretty amazing, remove and allow the cobbler to cool for at least 10 minutes.

Finally serve scoops on to plates or in bows with a dusting of powdered sugar. However vanilla ice cream is delicious as well. Whether you serve this warm or cold, it will no doubt blow your mind.

Brown butter peach cobbler for life.
