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!

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 45 min
Ready in: 55 min
Yields: 10–12 servings

Ingredients

  • 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.

Instructions

  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!

        Hi,

        Your recipe is almost like my Grandmother's, and it looked so delicious I could almost smell it. I love cobblers.

        I pick fresh Blackberries and make a cobbler every year if we have a good season for Blackberries.

        Have a great weekend.

        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.

        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.

        @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.

        I'm imagining a little of your peach cobbler with this cup of coffee...returning to add some fresh angel dust to the recipe...it doesn't add any calories or change the flavor! :)

        I'd love some cobbler actually. And the coffee. And a nice book under a tree somewhere far away from the winter of Western, NY. Wait...is that conversation or rambling? Anyway, great lens. I love simple dessert recipes.
