This was my great grandma's recipe from the 40's and earlier. Its so easy to make. I remember this being my favorite dessert from when I was a child. This is delicious when hot and served with ice cream or I enjoy it cold by itself. Enjoy!

I'm rating this a 5 star even tho I messed it up. I combined the flour and the sugar and the egg but found it wasn't quite pliable. I figured the recipe must've meant to add some peach liquid into the dough...so I did. Then I forgot to melt the butter until after I had it in the oven. I'm thinking it's good enough for a repeat as it's very simple to make, but next time I'm going to melt the butter and add it into the flour mixture. Oh and if you don't have self rising flour just add 1 1/4 tsp baking powder & 1/4 tsp salt to the bottom of a 1 cup measuring cup, and level it off w/ all purpose flour. Read More

I followed the directions and the results were very unappetizing. The top looked wonderful but upon slicing it the underbelly of the crust was soggy. I will not be making this one ever again. Read More

Great taste and so easy to make! I did sprinkle a little cinnamon on top just because I like cinnamon. Next time I make this I will cut down on the amount of juice I use - I think I went a little overboard this first time. Read More

I was so puzzled when I mixed up the flour sugar and egg since it was dry and crumbly. The recipe said to "pour" it over the peaches so I thought it should be wet like batter. But I dumped it on top of the fruit and spread it out. Poured the butter over and made sure it was all covered. I used my 9 or 10 inch deep dish pie plate and it just fit. It was fantastic! My husband loved it too. I might try adding a little cinnamon next time but it's 5 stars as written. I love the old time recipes. My mom's cooking was from the 40s and this tastes like something she would have made. Simple and tasty and easy to make from simple everyday ingredients. Thank you for sharing this! Your great-grandma would be proud. Read More

Delicious and very easy to make. Tastes fantastic with vanilla ice cream. The inside was nice and soft and the top layer was just a little bit crunchy which was yummy. I did not have self-rising flour but another reviewer suggested simply adding baking powder and salt to regular flour. This worked great. I used 1 1/4 baking powder per 1 cup of flour (didn't use any salt). When I put it in the oven I noticed the butter pooling a bit in one spot along the side. Once it was cooled off a bit I noticed that it was also a bit too crunchy in one place along the side (probably where the butter pooled) so be sure to drizzle the butter evenly and not too much at the sides of the dish.

oh my goodness! just as easy as it is delicious. this is three times I've made this in a month and every time I experiment a little more (cinnamon, ginger, all spice etc...) I like to have fun in the kitchen, it's like a great big chemistry lab to me. in fact why discard the remaining juice? it made a wonderful fuzzy navel while I waited. Read More

This was delicious!! It was a little too sweet paired with ice cream....but I ate it cold today after lunch...HEAVENLY! Will definitely make it again...soon!! Hint...when you mix up the egg flour and sugar...it will be a little clumpy...but just pour and spread over peaches...when you drizzle the melted butter on top it will be enough to go over all of the mixture to make it come together and stick more. Soooo good!! Read More

This was very good. I halved the recipe bc I only had 1 can of peaches. I also subbed oats for 1/3 of the flour subbed brown for 1/2 of the white sugar mixed the butter with the topping mixture before topping the peaches and mixed a dash of cornstarch and lemon juice with the peaches. Read More

This was one of the easiest recipes I've followed. It turned out very well I used a cast iron skillet as my "baking dish" which cooked the cobbler superbly. I followed another review and add a teaspoon of cinnamon.tastes great! Read More
