This was the result of letting my 3 baby cousins 'help' me in the kitchen. The oldest was 4. Surprisingly this cobbler turned out pretty well. If a bit messy.

  • Place the butter into a 8x8-inch baking dish, and place into the oven until melted. Stir the sugar, nutmeg, and self-rising flour together in a mixing bowl. Stir in the milk until no lumps remain. Pour the batter over the melted butter in the baking dish. Do not stir. Spoon the sliced peaches over top; gently pour in the juice.

  • Return to the oven, and bake until the batter has firmed and the cobbler has risen a bit, 35 to 45 minutes.

Cook's Note

To change this recipe to an apple cobbler, just substitute the peaches for apple. This recipe works well, both ways.

This is a very old Southern recipe. Southern women have been making this dish exactly this way for centuries. it is absolutely DEE LISH. We often serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This was the first dish I learned to make 51 years ago at the tender age of 5. Fresh nutmeg is best. If you don't have nutmeg on hand use the same amount of cinnamon. For a spicier style use ground ginger again fresh grated is best. You can also use frozen defrosted peaches or any type of berries. Thanks for handing along a classic and preserving a great tradition. Read More

There was entirely too much liquid for this recipe. My cobbler turned out as what can only be described as gelatinous. I double checked the recipe to make sure I didn't miss anything and I did not. Needless to say...I won't be making this again. Read More

Used a cast iron skillet. Didn't have self-rising flour but my handy-dandy Betty Crocker Cookbook told me that a substitute for 3/4 cup self-rising flour is 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 1 tsp baking powder and 1/8 tsp salt. Used about 8 fresh nectarines instead of canned and sprinkled cinnamon and brown sugar on top. Read More

This is an easy and great summer dessert. Serve warm and add ice creme and its a hit!! I use suger/cinnamon combo generously in place of the nutmeg! Because the cobbler portion is rich feel free to use other fruit too--strawberries blueberries apples...its all good! Read More

Wonderful easy cobbler! My 8-inch pan was in the sink and I didn't feel like washing it so I made it in the 9x11 and yes it was thin... but turned out just great. I'll be making this again. Read More

I've found to use 1/2 of the milk and 1/2 of the peach syrup to mix with the flour mixture. Read More

This is an easy recipe to throw together. A little gooey and runny when warm but it tastes good. After chilling it forms a type of custard with the peaches and a cakey top. I am glad I made it thank you. Read More
