I remember growing up at home mom would, at times, surprise us with a warm peach cobbler for dessert. I must say I wasn’t much help to her when she was cooking because I always preferred to be outside with my dad, down at the barn or possibly in the hayfield, depending on the time of year.
It was always such a joy though when you walk into the front door and smell the fresh peach cobbler in the oven.
Yum, really good memories. I should tell you that my mom is a real southern cook. She is not the kind of woman that goes by recipe, all the ingredients are in her head and she can so simply “whip” up anything from scratch. I’m not that talented, just ask my family. If I don’t have a recipe to follow, to the letter, then you probably don’t want to try whatever it is that I’ve made.
When I ask mom how she makes things, she is quick to say something like, “O just put you some sugar, flour and milk in a bowl and mix it up and pour it… She is now 76 years old and still in charge of making the dressing, sweet potato casserole, and slaw anytime the family gets together for a meal. Not any of us ladies in the family can cook like her.
After several failed attempts at making my own peach cobbler, I have finally came up with a recipe that my family enjoys so today I wanted to share with you.
Here is some step by step directions to make the Easy Peach Cobbler with canned peaches. Whether you use canned, fresh or frozen peaches will depend on the time of year and what you have on hand. I always use peaches that I have canned myself over the summer.
Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe
- 1 quart of sliced peaches DRAINED, but reserve the syrup, you will use it later
- 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 1/2 cups of milk
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Melt your stick of butter and pour it into a 13×9 baking dish
- Mix together in a bowl, flour, sugar, milk and peach syrup
- Pour mixture into baking dish on top of the butter
- Add peaches in a single layer but do NOT mix
- Bake for 1 hour or until the crust rises and turns a golden brown
This is best when served hot, or even better, with a big scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. I hope you will try this recipe and your family enjoys it.
