You don't need to keep your peach cobbler in the fridge, however, refrigeration does help it stay fresh longer. No matter how you choose to keep it, make sure the cobbler has completely cooled down before storing it.
Store your peach cobbler in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days or up to 7 days in the fridge. To reheat it, bake for 5 to 7 minutes at 300°F.
Preheat your oven to 375°F.
Heat peaches, sugar, cornstarch, lemon zest and juice in a saucepan. Allow the peach mixture to come to a gentle bubble, and cook for 5 minutes. Stir regularly.
Scatter the butter cubes across a baking dish.
Put the dish in the oven and melt the butter.
In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, egg, vanilla, and milk to combine.
Remove the baking dish from the oven. Pour the batter over the butter.
Spread the peaches evenly across the batter.
Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
Dust with powdered sugar if desired.
