This yummy cobbler recipe has been in my family (and probably most southern families) for ages. I have added and taken away a few things over the years, but I love it any way I make it.

  • Bring the peaches with syrup and 2 tablespoons of sugar to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 10 minutes; set aside. Whisk together the flour, 1 cup sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl. Stir in the milk until the mixture is just moistened. Pour into the hot baking dish over the butter. Spoon the peach slices and most of the syrup over the batter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Return to the oven and bake until the top is golden brown, 30 to 45 minutes longer.

My family LOVED it! I didn't have self rising flour so used regular flour and a teas. of baking powder. I didn't put in nutmeg. I added vanilla. I was worried about it being too sweet but it was perfect. I served it w/ vanilla bean ice cream. WONDERFUL! Read More

I made this for my family and made no changes to the recipe. It was a winner! We loved the crusty top. Serve warm with fresh whipping cream or vanilla ice cream. Yum! Read More

Way too sweet. I made this using 1/2 cup sugar in the batter 1 tablespoon in the peaches and 1 tablespoon sprinkled on top. It had the perfect sweetness and I could actually taste the peaches. Read More

This was great! I ended up using 2 15 oz cans of peaches. And I was worried that it wouldnt all fit into the 8x8 pan. But it fit perfect and turned out yummy. I would also next time sprinkle brown sugar on top instead of white sugar. Read More

This was really delicious! I took the advice of another poster and reduced the amount of sugar and since I only had 29 oz. cans of peaches and a 9x9 pan instead of 8x8 I ended up using most of the peaches from the larger can in order to have enough fruit in the cobbler. Not sure how it would be fruity enough with only a 15 oz can!!! I also sprinkled brown sugar on top instead of white sugar because I thought it would look prettier that way - So yummy! Read More

I have tried this recipe three times and each time my family loved it. The only changes that I made was, instead of putting two tablespoons of sugar on top, I only put one and I sprinkled a little cinnamon on top also. This recipe is a keeper and I will continue to make it in the future. Read More

This is the same recipe that my Grandma makes for peach cobbler and the one I still use. Grandma always used a cast iron skillet her own peaches that she canned herself and she would wisk a tablespoon or so of cornstarch to the peach "juices" in the saucepan before she added the peaches and sugar. At the last before she put the cobbler into the oven she'd sprinkle a little sugar over the top. To this day it's one of my most favorite desserts. I've tried to make this in a baking dish or pan and it just dosen't taste as good as it does when it's been cooked in a cast iron skillet to me anyway. To really take it over the top try this with cold vanilla bean ice cream! Read More

Very good my husband loved it! A little sweet for me so I cut out the sugar sprinkled on top half way thru baking. Also I did not have self rising flour so this one time I used Bisquik. The recipe went into my "keeper" file. Read More

Best Peach Cobbler recipe I have had. I love Peach Cobbler and have tried tens of recipes that aren't nearly as good as this one. It is so simple too! I love the warm chewiness of this cobbler. It is starting to become a signature dish of mine and I am getting requests to make it now.:) I cut the sugar in half and omitted the sugar in the peaches and also on top of the cobbler as it cooked. It was totally not necessary. I also used all purpose flour and added 1 1/4 tsp of baking powder to the batter. Read More
