Peach Cobbler

After picking peaches on Sunday, I was just dying to try an old fashioned recipe for peach cobbler. I found this recipe to be a little strange, but I’m so glad I gave it a try. I’ll definitely be making it again.


  • 1 1/2 cups self rising flour
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups of sugar, divided
  • 4 cups of fresh peaches, peeled and sliced (I used 3 large peaches)
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk
  • Ground cinnamon (optional)


  • First, preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Mix your peaches, water, and one cup of sugar in a saucepan on the stove, bring to a boil, and simmer for 10 minutes then, remove from heatIMG_2312
  • Now for the odd part – place the stick of butter in the 9×13 baking dish and put in the oven until it’s meltedIMG_2314
  • Mix remaining cup of sugar, flour, and milk IMG_2313
  • Pour sugar/flour/milk mixture over the melted butter, and do not stir
  • Next, spoon your peaches on top, distributing evenly
  • Pour the syrup (sugar and water mixture cooked with the peaches in the saucepan) over the top
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon
  • Bake for 30-45 minutes and serve with ice cream or whipped cream

The batter rises to the top while it’s baking, and it should be a beautiful golden brown when you take it out of the oven.
