Quick Peach Cobbler

"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."

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. This was wonderful! My husband and I had a craving for something sweet but didn't have much on hand to work with. This was fast, easy and didn't take a lot of ingredients. It was so yummy! The whole pan is now gone. Thanks for sharing!
  5. I have made this with pineapple too and both are delicious, I like the sweet and crunchy top with the warm and homey like peaches at the bottom. Thanks for sharing this recipe.


  1. wonderful recipe made this yesturday however i made a couple of changes instead of milk i use 1/2 cup of peach juice from canned peaches and instead of 1/2cup of sugar to sprinkle over peaches i use 1/4 cup of sugar. i double the recipe and use a 9x13 glass baking dish turn out good nice and golden
  2. This was definitely satisfying to my pregnancy craving for peach cobbler! My kids and I devoured half of this last night and the rest for breakfast. Although, until my diabetes is under control, I won't be making this again for a while:). Also, I kind of took some of the other advice and instead of just milk, I used 1/4 cup of the reserved peach juice and 1/4 cup of milk, which made the crust slightly sweet as opposed to using milk alone, but I bet it would have been just as good either way. Thanks for an awesome recipe!
