Peach Pandowdy or Cobbler

I need to put a disclaimer on this recipe. It seems this homemade peach cobbler recipe is more of a pandowdy than a cobbler.

This was front page pastry news to me that I discovered when Google searching cobblers.

Technically, a cobbler crust has a biscuit or cake like texture. Pandowdies have more of a pie crust or pastry texture to there crust.

This cobbler’s crust is much like a pie crust, so maybe I should call this “Simple 4 Ingredient Peach Pandowdy”? However, since cobbler pulls up much better in a Google search, this is going to be a cobbler.

Ripen Peaches Quickly For Peach Cobbler Recipes

You’re so excited about making this 4 ingredient peach cobbler with fresh peaches.  You can’t wait for your taste buds to experience this mouth watering, finger-licking good peach cobbler.  However, reality cold cocks you in the face when you realize your peaches aren’t ripe enough to bake your recipe for peach cobbler.  Oh no, the agony and dissappointment you feel. 

So, when life throws you unripe peaches, don’t bake out in a cold sweat.  No, cut corners and ripen those peaches quickly. 

Forget Mother Nature’s 4 or 5 day ripening process.  Here’s how to amp up the ripening speed to 1 or 2 days.

  • Place your peaches in a brown paper bag (not plastic) with a banana.  Fold the top of the bag over and seal it (tape or a rubber band will work just fine).  The banana releases ethylene, which causes the peaches to ripen quickly.  
  • Place a shallow bowl of peaches in direct sunlight.  Heat helps to ripen fruit quickly.  However, make sure they don’t get overheated or they will start to bake.  
  • Place the peaches in a brown paper bag with a banana and place the bag in a warm sunny spot.

The speed of any of these ripening options depends on how ripe the peaches were to begin with.  To be safe, check your peaches every 4 to 6 hours to make sure they are not getting to ripe.

Should You peel peaches for a cobbler?

If you really detest peach skins, you can peel your peaches; however, there’s no need to peel. The peach skins melt right into the cobbler filling and you can’t even tell it’s there. Plus, the skins give the cobbler a deeper flavor.

    Sounds delicious. I’ve always used a dry yellow or white cake mix instead of the flour and sugar. People always ask for the recipe. But I’ll definitely try this!

    1. Great comment. I know there’s a difference in this and most cobblers. This is more like a pastry, because the crust is only flour, butter and sugar. Most cobblers have milk in the crust also, so it’s not as pastry, pie crusty like. I love pie crust, so I really love this cobbler. Everyone I make this for loves it. Please give it a bake and let me know what you think. Thanks for your comment.

  2. I would like to try this recipe. Do you have a substitution for the self rising flour? Maybe adding regular flour plus some baking powder. If so what would be the measurements ?
    Thank You

    1. Great question. I just pulled this off the Internet. “For each cup of flour, whisk together with 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder and ¼ teaspoon of salt. Make sure to whisk all of these ingredients together well so that the baking powder and salt are both evenly distributed within the flour.” I hope this helps. This peach cobbler is really good. Please let me know how it comes out. Thanks for your question.

  3. Why are these types of peach cobblers’ crusts aren’t flakey, but mushy instead?

    1. Mine wasn’t flakey, but it sure wasn’t mushy. It was the best part of the cobbler.
