Judging by his 2 million YouTube subscribers, lots of people really do want to let go of that mystery and just keep cooking.

The great part about AB’s recipes is his use of common pantry items and readily available ingredients. A lot of home cooks, especially the ones who are new to cooking or don’t have a lot of time to cook, just want simple instructions.

First things first, what is a peach cobbler?

“A peach cobbler is a freeform dessert with a peach base and buttery biscuit topping,” Masterclass explained.

You can use fresh or frozen peaches but if you don’t have those, then just make do with canned peaches, right? Now, here’s the thing, canned peaches are already sweetened so it’s up to you if you want to use the same amount of sugar or lessen it.

How will you know if you need to adjust the sweetness? Just taste the peaches. If the sweetness suits you, then just lessen the sugar needed for the recipe. But if you believe it needs more sugar, then go for the same amount AB recommends.

Once you get the hang of this recipe, you can also add other fruits, like blueberries, raspberries, or even plums.

For this peach cobbler recipe, AB didn’t even try to make it a gourmet dish made simple.

He made it with simple ingredients you can find anywhere, canned peaches, sugar, spices, and ready-to-make pie crust. You do need a baking pan though. If you don’t have one, then the aluminum pans will do.

Start off with four 15 0z cans of sliced peaches. Get the sliced ones so they’re already evenly sliced and that’s just one less thing to worry about.

Add them all to a pot and remember to include the syrup. Add half of the white sugar first and mix it in so there are no sugar clumps. Then add the rest of the white sugar and the brown sugar. Mix them all in.

You’ll notice the syrup getting even thicker at this point.

Add your spices, cinnamon, and nutmeg. This will elevate the taste of the peach cobbler and give you another flavor that’s not just sugar.

Mix them all together and place the pot on the stove and cook for about 15 mins on low-medium to medium heat.

While that’s cooking, prepare your pan.

Get your pan and grease it with oil or butter. Line your pan with the pie crust and cover the entire pan. Once your peaches are cooked, pour them into the pan and make sure they’re all level. Use the rest of your pie crust to make lattice strips and spread them on top of the peaches. Brush the top with melted butter.

Bake in the oven at 350°F for 1 hour and 15 mins.

Serve with a scoop of ice cream.
