Old Fashion Peach Cobbler

Some of the best recipes are those that are passed down through generations. This Old Fashion Peach Cobbler recipe is one that I bet was served countless times for Sunday dinner dessert, taken to Potlucks, and enjoyed for the holidays.

Many moons ago, my Mother-in-Law gave me a cookbook that was published by her women’s group at their church. It’s one of those cookbooks that is full of recipes that you know have been family favorites over the years. I have used this cookbook many, many times and have yet to find a recipe we didn’t love.

Cobbler is one of those desserts that I remember my Mom making, especially when the fruit was ripe and in season. There are many different ways to make Cobbler, some are made with a batter like this Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler, some have a pie crust and others are simply made with store bought biscuits. But they all contain fruit or a savory filling of some kind.

This particular recipe is definitely Old Fashioned, while the Peach Cobbler is not difficult and it didn’t take long to put together, it’s made a little different than the more modern Cobbler recipes. You begin with a square baking dish and melt the butter right in the pan. Then add the sugar, flour, salt, baking powder and milk. The peaches are sliced and mixed with sugar, then placed right on top of the batter. Into the oven it goes for about 45 minutes to an hour.

Although I wanted to make this recipe exactly how it was written, keeping it original, I think next time I will add cinnamon and perhaps use brown sugar in place of part of the white sugar.

What do you think? Would you add those ingredients?

Enjoying our Peach Cobbler with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream is a must here in the Midwest, although I believe that part originated in the Deep South. Either way, it’s delicious!

    I’ve been searching for a cobbler recipe that would turn out like the one my husband remembers from his childhood summers spent at his grandfather’s farm in Kansas. Have tried many over the years but this one finally nailed it! Had to sub soy milk for regular milk and vegan butter but it was still perfect. Sweet and gooey with crunchy edges.

    1. Oh wow Christina! I’m thrilled you liked it! Thanks for letting me know!

  2. Great recipe! I used brown sugar in peaches. Came out great!

  3. Wonda Spencer says:

    I am Food Director for an Assited Living Facility. I made this for my residents and it really took them back home. They really enjoyed it and talked all day about how good it was and how their mothers use to make it for them when they were kids.
    Thanks and keep them coming.
    Always baking.

  4. This sounds like the skillet cobbler my mom used to make. Simple and very good. Thanks for reminding me.

    Have a great 4th!


    1. Thanks so much Linda! So glad you stopped by!
      Happy Baking!
