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!

Ingredients needed for this peach cobbler recipe.

Ingredients needed for this peach cobbler recipe.

Cook Time

Prep timeCook timeReady inYields

10 min

45 min

55 min

10–12 servings


  • 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.


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Melt butter in an 8 in. glass baking dish.
  3. Combine the sugar, milk, and flour.
  4. Pour mixture over the melted butter
  5. Pour the peaches, including the canning syrup, over the top and spread them evenly.
  6. 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!

The comments below are full of reader reviews and substitutions they've tried with this recipe.

Questions & Answers

Question: Can I use a 14.5 can of peaches?

Answer: 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.

Question: Can I use a 1.81 lb can of peaches for this peach cobbler recipe?

Answer: 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

Faye Rutledge from Concord VA on November 14, 2013:

I've made this same recipe many times. We called it a Ten Dollar Fruit Cobbler, but not sure why, as it didn't cost that much to make! It's the best ever cobbler, and also wonderful using cherries or other fruits.

great recipe, thanks for sharing.

Cynthia Sylvestermouse (author) from United States on June 18, 2013:

@anonymous: LOL! Yes, I am absolutely certain we use include the syrup when we use canned peaches. However, when I make the cobbler with fresh peaches, I use water instead.

GameHelp on June 17, 2013:

This looks and sounds delicious, thanks for posting it.

anonymous on June 13, 2013:

Are you SURE you also put the peach syrup? I seem to recall an old recipe I had that did not ask for the syrup... I also believe that it was 8 oz of butter--an entire stick. I know, I also thought it was too much butter, but it worked every time! I used to make this recipe all the time, the result is absolutely fantastic.

belinhafernandes on April 23, 2013:

Hi! I did tried your recipe this weekend! :) It's so good! But I had no ice-cream. Next time I'll do it with it too!

belinhafernandes on April 16, 2013:

How, how silly of me...it's 350ºF!! It means 178 ºC!!! ( More or less...LOL!!)

belinhafernandes on April 16, 2013:

:( I might face a problem. I think my oven does not go as hot as 350º...

belinhafernandes on April 16, 2013:

Hi! It's me again. I came back to take notes of your recipe! Meanwhile I Googled it and learned it's a kind of recipe popular in USA and UK. So I'm going international cuisine here, LOL! Thanks for sharing! I'll let you know when it's done and eaten!:)

anonymous on March 29, 2013:

wow - lots of good recipes here

anonymous on March 29, 2013:

This looks and sounds delicious! Now I need to go get some peaches so I can make it. Thanks for sharing!

Cynthia Sylvestermouse (author) from United States on March 28, 2013:

@anonymous: jaxiegirl, there are actually a couple of things that might cause that and as you indicated the length of baking time could be one. I do bake my cobbler for 45 min. However, I am actually more inclined to believe it may have more to do with the placement of your cobbler in the oven. A cobbler needs to be center of your oven. If the cobbler is placed to close to the heating element, the edges will cook faster, appear to be done, but leaving the center not completely cooked. You will want a more even and thorough baking. Also, I do put my peaches on the top. They will settle throughout the mixture instead of being the "foundation" of the cobbler. Putting the fruit first also places the mixture further away from the heat and could well be creating a barrier for thorough cooking.

anonymous on March 26, 2013:

why does my peach cobbler come out doughy, it doesn't cook all the way threw, I put the peaches on the bottom does that make a difference, how long do you bake it...help please

Gregory Moore from Louisville, KY on March 24, 2013:

Well done. This does look easy. I think I might even be able to make this cobbler recipe!

trishafly on March 22, 2013:

I think your mother & my mother shared the same recipe box ... can't eat just a little of this peach cobbler.
