Fresh peaches are called for in this recipe, but fresh ripe nectarines or drained canned peaches will work as well. Serve this super easy cobbler warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or drizzle with some plain heavy cream.

As the cobbler bakes, the cake-like batter partially covers the cinnamon-spiced peaches. 

It's a fabulous summer recipe, perfect for a cookout or Fourth of July celebration. Enjoy it any time of the year!
