Quick and Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe
My Mother's Best Peach Cobbler Recipe
My mother's peach cobbler recipe is one of my favorite desserts. Actually, it's also my favorite breakfast. I have even been known to eat it for lunch.
I guess just about everyone believes their mother is the best cook, but mine really is the best. Her peach cobbler simply cannot be beat. I have sampled peach cobbler in restaurants in a few countries and I have never, ever found one as good as my own mother's cobbler. Every time I order it, I wait in great anticipation, hoping for a delicious cobbler only to be disappointed. So, I ask myself, why bother? I need to just go home and make my own.
This is one of the easiest recipes you will ever make!
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- 1 small can sliced peaches
- 4 Tbls butter, melted
Types of Peaches That Work Well
My favorite brand of canned peaches to use in this recipe is Del Monte sliced Freestone peaches in heavy syrup.
If you prefer to use fresh peaches, you will need four or five peeled peaches and 1/2 cup of water instead of the canned peaches.
- Preheat the oven to 350°.
- Melt butter in an 8 in. glass baking dish.
- Combine the sugar, milk, and flour.
- Pour mixture over the melted butter
- Pour the peaches, including the canning syrup, over the top and spread them evenly.
- Bake for 45 min.

Substitutions and Variation
Note: One commenter who didn't have self-rising flour substituted all-purpose flour, 1½ tsp baking powder, and ½ tsp of salt, and it worked out well. So if you find yourself without self-rising flour, try the baking powder substitute.
Other commenters have recommended eating this cobbler hot out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and I have to say, I couldn't agree more!

Questions & Answers
Can I use a 14.5 can of peaches?
I would recommend doubling the recipe and using a larger baking dish (5 quarts or 10x15) for a big can of peaches. My mother frequently doubles this recipe because we have such a large family.Helpful 5
Can I use a 1.81 lb can of peaches for this peach cobbler recipe?
Yes, you can use a 1.81 lb (29 oz) can of peaches, but you would need to double the recipe. I use a small, 15 oz can of peaches for the recipe as shown. You would also need a larger baking dish, like a 9x13 size
