This juicy peach cobbler is the best – with ripe, cinnamon and nutmeg-spiced peaches topped with fluffy, vanilla-scented dollops of biscuit. Best late-summer dessert ever!

For the filling:

3 lbs (1.5 kilos) fresh peaches, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
⅓ cup (70 grams) dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch 
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla paste or extract

For the biscuit topping: 

½ cup (125 ml) non-dairy milk
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 ½ cups (180 grams) all-purpose flour
½ cup (100 grams) light brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 stick (113 grams) unsalted butter, cold and diced

Optional topping:

2 tablespoons granulated sugar
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon


To make the filling:

Preheat the oven to 350 ℉ (175℃).

Lightly grease a 9X13-inch (23×33 cm) baking pan with vegan butter. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and pour it into the prepared pan.

Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes and then remove from the oven and keep warm. Keep the oven on. 

Create ‘buttermilk’ by combining the milk and lemon juice in a small bowl and let sit for a few minutes until it starts to curdle. 

Meanwhile, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl and whisk together. Cut in the cold, diced butter using a pastry cutter, until the mixture resembles coarse pea-sized crumbs. 

Add the buttermilk and using a wooden spoon, work it in until you have a slightly sticky dough. 

Assemble the cobbler:

Place dobs of the batter over the warm peaches. Brush the top with a little non-dairy milk and sprinkle with the optional cinnamon-sugar topping.

Bake in the oven for about 40-45 minutes until the biscuit topping is golden brown and the filling bubbles around the edges. 

Place on a wire rack to cool for a few minutes before serving warm with a big scoop of vegan vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!
