Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9x9-inch baking dish.

    Advertisement
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, white sugar, baking powder, salt, and vanilla. Pour milk into dry ingredients, and then stir in melted margarine. Mix thoroughly.

  • Pour mixture into prepared baking pan. Arrange peaches on top and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 30 minutes.

Editor's Note:

To use fresh peaches, you may substitute 4 cups peeled, sliced peaches for the canned peaches. To peel peaches, bring a pot of water to a boil. Remove from heat. Carefully drop peaches into hot water; let stand for 1 minute. Use a slotted spoon to transfer peaches to an ice water bath; when peaches are cool enough to handle, skin will slip right off.

I know a lot of people prefer a cobbler with a flaky crust, and if that is you try another recipe. I, on the other hand, love a thicker, cake-like crust. This crust reminds me of a good bread pudding, the edges have just a little crunch and the center is soft and custard like. If that is the kind of cobbler you preffer, then this is the best recipe. I did make a couple of changes. I added a 1/4 cup more flour and milk to make more crust, and I used a smaller/deeper baking dish. I had to adjust the cooking time/temp a little for best results. 350-375 for 30 minutes then bump the temp to 400 for 10 minutes. Be sure to keep an eye on it in the last 10 minutes since. Everything was set perfectly for me at the 10 minute mark, but we all know there are a great number of factors that affect cook time. Anyways, I'll be playing with this recipe some more, so if I come up with some bit thing that makes a significant change, I might be back. Read More

thought this would be good since i mixed the butter w/ the ingredients (a little different than most recipes).... i did it exactly as described and it turned out kind of bready and not very moist. i'll probably go back to my other recipes on peach cobbler. Read More

This is a little different than some other cobblers I've had. It's a really good throw together, ingredients are usually on hand. I've made this twice now and I followed the recipe the first time. The second time I made this, I put a bit of cinnamon in the batter and increased the amount of cinnamon by a little that's sprinkled on top. I thought it turned out better the second time. I will make this again! Read More

My family raved about this cobbler. Of course I served it with vanilla bean ice cream while it was still warm. It was so so good. I made this cobbler with two minor changes. I prepared this with about 6 large fresh peaches sliced thinly instead of canned peaches. Also, after it had been in the oven for about 5 minutes and had started to "set", I sprinkled the top with about 2 Tbl sugar and then continued to bake it. I imagine I will prepare this cobbler many many more times because it really was very easy and very delicious. Read More

My favorite canned peach cobbler!! This was absolutely delicious and gone in record time. I used dark brown sugar (lightly packed), butter instead of margarine, half 'n' half instead of milk, and added a bit of cinnamon to the batter. I also used Margaret Holmes O'sage Ragged Freestone Peach halves and pieces, chopped up a bit. (which, in my opinion, makes a difference). My cobbler was neither bland nor dry. This is an absolute MUST TRY recipe!! My mouth is watering thinking about it... To make it easier, I save my version as a custom recipe if anyone is interested. Read More

Okay, I read most of the reviews and this cobbler is divided depending on your own tastes. I made this twice over the weekend. The first time I made this I followed it exact and baked it in a 9x13 pan and my family devored it before I had a chance to get a little bite! I found it to be a bit mushy like and I did bake it longer than what the recipe called for. BUT I found it very yummy!! The next day we were invited over for dinner with the parents and I was to make dessert. My husband said I had to make this for dessert so off to the store I went to buy more canned peaches. This time I decided to double the entire recipe becuase we had a bunch to feed and I added a 1/2 cup more flour and a little nutmeg with the cinnamon. I had to bake it in a 9x13 which was perfect to use and baked it for about 50-55 minutes since the recipe was doubled. It turned out better than the first try just following the recipe as was. I really liked the recipe as is and I don't rate unless I find it to be five stars and before I made it a second time my rating was five stars!! I WILL make this again!! If you want the cake part to be more cakier than add a little more flour. I thought it was fabulous doubled so there you are!! I am usually a bisquit-y cobbler person but this was wonderful!! Thank you!! Read More

This was very good. I made the first batch in an 8x8 pan based on other reviews and I decided a 13x9x2 pan would have been better. The batter was too thick in the 8x8 pan and it engulfed the peaches. The second batch in the 13x9x2 fared better. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This was really delicious. I added 1 teaspoon of brown sugar to the cinnamon to sprinkle on top of the peaches and it was no regret. Read More

Used an 8x8 pan and had to cook it 15 to 20 minutes longer before it was firm in the middle. Everybody had a second helping! Read More
