For the cobbler:

  • 1 stick butter melted
  • 4 cups sliced peaches
  • 2 cups sugar divided
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • Whipped cream or iced cream


For the cobbler:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place butter in an 8 x 8 baking dish. Place butter in the oven and allow to melt, about 5-7 minutes.
  • In the meantime, combine peaches with one cup of sugar in a medium mixing bowl. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, blend remaining sugar, flour, baking powder, milk, and salt. Pour mixture over the melted butter. DO NOT STIR!
  • Pour peaches over the flour.
  • Bake for 1 hour or until crust has risen to the top and is golden brown.
  • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream


Store any leftovers in the refrigerator. Cover the top of the baking dish with plastic wrap or transfer the cobbler to a container fitted with a lid to prevent the cobbler from drying out. Cobbler should be eaten with five days. This dessert does not freeze.
