Peach Cobbler Anyone? Inspired By Susan Furlong's Newest Series I Share My Tutorial For The Perfect Cobbler Recipe

Peach Cobbler Anyone? By far this is my most favorite summer time dessert. I have and do make it year round but when peaches are in season this can not be beat! I belong to a mail swapping group called Swap-Bot which has provided me with years of entertainment and some amazing recipes. Today I share one I got in 2009 and quickly added to my favorites pile!

The original recipe came to me from a swap partner I had named Jenna83. Thanks to Jenna my family and friends have enjoyed this recipe so many times.
To make your own you will need:
1/2 cup of butter
1 cup of self-rising flour (if you don't have that use one cup of flour and 1 1/4 tsp of baking powder)
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of milk
1 can of fruit (I used Peaches with the syrup) or 2 cups of fresh fruit
*I also add 1 tsp of cinnamon over the peaches
Pre heat your oven to 375 degrees.
Place your butter in your 9X13 baking dish and place it in the oven to melt.
In a medium bowl place your flour and sugar, us a spatula to mix them together and then add your milk. Stir until a smooth batter forms.
Next remove your melted butter filled pan from the oven and pour the batter over it. DO NOT STIR. If using canned peaches use your can opener and pour the entire can and syrup over the batter. DO NOT STIR. Sprinkle cinnamon over the peaches and place in in the oven until it is lightly browned about 50-60 minutes.
I don't serve mine with ice-cream as suggested by my friend Jenna83 as I find with the syrup and sugar it is sweet enough!
My tea suggestion if you love the taste of peach cobbler and wish to compliment it or if you are looking for a wonderful peach tea is Steeped Tea's Fuzzy Peaches. This is one of my most favorite black Steeped Tea's. On days where I feel like peach cobbler but don't want to turn on the oven this tea is the next best thing.

  1. Hi Karen: I just went over the recipe that you posted and although it sounds very much like my puffed pancake recipe, this one does not contain eggs as mine does. I just wanted to check to make sure that this has no eggs in the recipe before I make it. My puffed pancake is almost exactly the same but has the eggs in it to get it to rise and puff up. Just wanted to check on it. Thank you.


    1. no eggs! I promise! Let me know what you think!

  2. Hello Karen, Your peach cobbler recipe is the same one my Mom used for years and of course, I have adopted. My family and friends love the cobbler and I use any fruit available, fresh, frozen or canned! Especially love to use blackberries, and no, ice cream is not needed!!!! Such a good dessert.
    Love reading your blogs, and reviews of books, plus the table settings all so gorgeous. Thanks for being there.

    1. Geneva thank you for taking the time to write me an for letting me know. We have wild black berries that grow a few steps from our house. I have never done cobbler with them perhaps this year I shall! Thank you for stopping by!

  3. Sounds delightfully delicious! Thank you for sharing the recipe with us!!
