Peach Cobbler Recipe With Agave Nectar

by chefkeem

This easy peach cobbler recipe uses agave nectar, which really brings out the flavor of the peaches. Alternately, the correct sugar measurements are included as well.

Peach cobbler season is year-round, right? This recipe works great with fresh or frozen peaches.
The addition of tender pastry redolent of cinnamon, vanilla, and caramelized juices was a stroke of genius, if there ever was one at all. Whoever came up with the idea of heating the cobbler and then serving it with ice cream deserves to have their feet kissed. And washed. (Not necessarily in that order.)

This recipe is so easy - you can't go wrong

The result is spectacular!

You may eat your peach cobbler just as it is, as soon as it comes warm out of the oven. But with a real good vanilla ice cream---Häagen-Dazs, anyone?---you'll take the whole experience over the top. What can I say? You'll have to try this recipe for yourself. You won't believe how good it is...

...especially with Mexican Vanilla  --->

Amazon offers several brands of Mexican Vanilla. This one's a favorite because of the great value.

In this article I've shown you two things:

  1. How to make the best peach cobbler recipe in the world.
  2. How to make it even better

Doesn't make sense, you say? How can it be the best peach cobbler recipe ever, and then still have room for improvement? Let me explain.

  • The "sugar version" in itself is already a winner.
  • By replacing the sugar with agave nectar, you take advantage of the moisture-retaining and flavor-enhancing qualities of this all-natural sweetener. Thus you create an even better peach cobbler.

Enjoy! (And don't forget to print, bookmark, and SHARE it with your friends!)

chefkeem, Thank you for the instructions, pictures and products. What drinks do you serve and what ice cream would you recommend for someone who dislikes, for incomprehensible reasons, vanilla?
P.S. Durian can be used but only by locals of Indonesia and Malaysia where there are scent-free durians, as opposed to the smelly zibethinus species that is the only one currently being exported internationally.

Looks awesome, I have never tried agave nectar. Thank you for the detailed recipe!

Karen - highlight the desired text section, and then copy/paste it into your word program, note pad, or whatever you use for your documents. Then print.

I might. If I can figure out how to print it on one page!

I'll certainly try this. Will see if I can find agave nectar somewhere :-)

chefkeem on 09/06/2011

Barb - yes, agave nectar comes from the core of the agave plant. I have a blog with lots of info about it: :)

I see the agave nectar at the grocery store but havent tried it...sorta like honey? or is it really from the agave cactus? must check it out :)

Not durian, the smell! But they taste good.

chefkeem on 08/08/2011

Use any fruit you like (except durian), Marianne. Even berries work great.
