I got this recipe from my mother-in-law about 26 years ago. She is almost 92 years old now. This is the best peach cobbler I have ever eaten. We like to top it off with ice cream. Anybody that has ever eaten this at my house loves it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter and pour over peaches in a shallow baking dish.
  2. Sprinkle 1/2 cup sugar over peaches.
  3. Mix 1/2 cup sugar, 3/4 cup flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder and 1/2 cup milk; drizzle over peaches.
  4. Bake at 350° until crust is brown (about 1 hour).

Excellent recipe, however I made a few changes. After sprinkling the sugar over the peaches, I sprinkled on some cinnamon and ground nutmeg. Also instead of adding 1/2 cup of milk to the crust, I reserved 1/2 cup of the peach juice from the canned peaches. Fantastic and totally delicious and satisfying. Thank you so much for an excellent recipe. There was not enough left after dinner for a midnight snack.

This seems as though it is not quite the recipe I was looking for. It tasted good and was easy, but the texture was looser than I thought it would be. I used 2 15-oz. cans of peaches. I baked this in a 9X13 pan (the recipe doesn't specify) but I think it needed to be in a smaller pan. It was completely done and about to burn after 50 minutes.

Super amazing!!!! I used fresh peaches (due to purchasing 10 kilos/22 pounds at a bulk green grocer). I have never had a cobbler before (not popular here in Australia) but I will be making this again as my hubby had one mouthful and said "oh boy, you can make this anytime!" I added vanilla to the wet mix with flour and like others I sprinkled the peaches cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. I also reduced the sugar to 2/3 of a cup was perfect for us. Thanks for posting this great recipe!
