Recipe: Perfect Peach Cobbler

This Peach Cobbler recipe is a favorite… it’s quick, easy and fool proof… yes… I said fool proof… totally and absolutely foolproof…

In the south, Peach Cobbler is a staple in almost every household… and however many households there are .. there are Cobbler recipes… with peaches so abundant this time of year.. I thought it a perfect time to post this fabulous recipe..

I adapted it slightly from a Paula Deen recipe… I halved the recipe so it would be 4 servings not 8… her recipe calls for self rising flour.. I used all purpose flour and made my own self rising flour. I also added cinnamon sugar to both the batter and the peaches…. but otherwise the recipe is hers… and it is definitely a keeper…


The recipe is written calling for 2 cups peeled and sliced peaches… if you don’t have terrific fresh ones.. you can use frozen.. get the frozen ones that are flash frozen and not with any sugar..

If you decide to use self rising flour… omit the baking powder and salt.

This recipe is fool proof if you follow it exactly… pour the batter over the melted butter, and then carefully spoon the cooked peaches over the batter… DO NOT STIR… if you stir it .. it will fail… the reason it’s fool proof is that during baking, the weight of the fruit makes the peach slices sink and the batter rise above it and form a perfect crust.

Mix the batter well… use a wire whisk… I found that works the best …

Use the butter in this recipe.. it really makes a huge difference.. margarine just isn’t as good.

I have a cinnamon sugar mix …. you can make your own … just mix 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl…. I multiply it out to make enough to store and use periodically….store it in an airtight container to use as needed… it’s great on French Toast.

This makes 4 servings. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Try this.. you won’t believe how easy and good it is!

Recipe: Perfect Peach Cobbler

All you need:

2 cups peeled and sliced peaches
1 cup sugar, divided
2 teaspoons cinnamon sugar, divided
¼ cup water
4 tablespoons butter
¾ cup all purpose flour
1 ¼ teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
¾ cup milk

All you need to do:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium pot, combine the peaches, water, ½ cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon sugar.

Bring to a boil over medium high heat, then lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.

Put the butter in a 1 ½ quart baking dish.

Place in the oven and let the butter melt. Keep an eye on it otherwise the butter will brown.. mine did brown slightly, which is okay .. but you don’t want a burned taste and that can happen quickly.

Remove the baking dish from the oven and set aside.

In a bowl combine the flour, ½ cup sugar, baking powder and salt. Using a wire whisk.. whisk the flour mixture completely … you want the baking powder to be as evenly dispersed as possible.

Continue whisking as you pour a steady stream of milk into the flour mixture. Whisk constantly to prevent lumps… make sure the batter is smooth.

Pour the batter over the melted butter, some butter will rise to the top.. that’s okay.
Carefully spoon the peaches over the batter… DO NOT STIR.

Gently pour the peach syrup from the pot over the fruit.

Bake for 30 to 45 minutes. (I baked mine for 35 minutes).
