Sins of the Cobbler

It's hard to believe that you have never made a peach cobbler.

Am I right?

Buy some peaches now, while they are still in season, and make this easy version of the Southern classic dessert. If you are looking for a next-level recipe, try the Old-Fashioned Peach Cobbler with the lattice crust. Remember to use yellow peaches, not the white flesh ones.

Grandma's Peach Cobbler

This is the easiest (and some believe, most delicious) "from scratch" peach cobbler you'll ever make. Served alone or with cream, whipped cream or ice cream, it's an outstanding dessert.

Cobblers require ripe peaches of the highest quality. If you can't find really excellent fruit, but are desperate for peach cobbler, a satisfactory peach cobbler can be made with frozen peaches to which no sugar has been added. These are available year round at most any supermarket.

  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 cups peeled and sliced fresh peaches, with their juices
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Put the butter in a 9x13-inch Pyrex or other oven-proof baking dish and put the dish in the preheating oven. While the butter is melting, mix up the batter by combining the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and milk.
  3. When the butter is completely melted, remove the pan and pour the batter into the melted butter. Then, carefully spoon the peaches and juice evenly over the batter. Return dish to the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
  4. As the cobbler cooks, the batter will rise up and around the peaches.
  5. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
