Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler

Please Share Y'all!

 

In this post I’ll be sharing an Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler dessert recipe.

When the peaches are in season I love making peach cobbler. It’s a favorite dessert of many and so easy to make.

We sure do love our fresh summer peaches in the South. Whether it be a delicious juicy bite of a peach straight off the tree, as a side of fruit or made into a variety of desserts, peaches are a summer time favorite!

Here’s what you’ll need to make the cobbler

  • Fresh Sliced Peaches, can use frozen too in simple syrup (recipe follows)
  • Self Rising Flour
  • Sugar
  • Milk
  • Butter ( 1 stick)
  • Dash or Two of Cinnamon
  • Peach Simple Syrup

I like to prepare the peaches the day before but it can be done the day of making the cobbler. To prepare the peaches, peel and slice the peaches and add slices to a simple syrup on the stove top in a medium sauce pan.
 
Simple Syrup
  • 2 c Water
  • 2 c Sugar
Bring simple syrup and peaches to a boil and cook for 3 minutes, remove from heat to cool. I store the peaches in the simple syrup in the refrigerator until I’m ready to make the cobbler.

Okay, making the cobbler! Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
 
Place butter in an  8×8 baking dish and place into the oven while it preheats to melt the butter.
 
While the butter melts, in a mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, milk with a dash or two of ground cinnamon. Mix well into a batter.

Pour the batter into the baking dish of melted butter. Do not stir to combine the butter with the batter.
 
Lastly spoon peaches into the baking dish and drizzle 2 tbs of the simple syrup the peaches were cooked in over the cobbler.
 
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes until the top is golden brown. Allow to cool slightly before serving. Peach cobbler is great served warm with vanilla ice cream or cool out of the refrigerator.

I made two cobblers! One to gift and one to keep!

Tips: To speed up the ripening process in peaches, place them in a loosely sealed brown paper bag on the counter.


Peeling fresh peaches is easier if you make an X slit in the top of each peach and place in boiling water for about a minute, the remove and place into an ice water bath to cool.

Made this last night, came out gummy. It tasted like Paper Mache! I followed the recipe to a "T" only thing I didn't have "Self rising" flour on hand had to use all purpose, I don't know if that made a difference or not. Even vanilla ice cream didn't help it will not make again

Well gosh of course you can't use all-purpose flour. It said self-rising flour for a reason, because that flour already has baking powder and salt in it. So if you didn't make your own self-rising flour, it wouldn't have a chance of working.

This is a traditional cobbler recipe. I recommend trying it with the self rising flour. The all purpose would not rise properly without leavening agents.

I got a similar recipe from the Georgia Peach Commission in the early 1970's. The only difference was it used canned, fresh, or frozen (thawed) peaches in light syrup. I've never seen a recipe that used homemade simple syrup with the peaches. It seems to be an unnecessary step. I've also cut the butter down to 1/4 cup (1/2 stick). The original recipe didn't have cinnamon, but I like the batter spiced, so add 1/2 to 1 tsp. cinnamon. I've made this with blueberries, apples and peaches, with fabulous results! I just sprinkled the blueberries or apples over the batter, no simple syrup needed. This summer because we are diabetics, I've used Splenda blend instead of sugar and no one could tell the difference!

This is similar to my Grandmothers recipe. My family loves peach cobbler. When pears are in season I'll make cobbler with pears also.

Question: Do I put the fresh peaches in the simply syrup or only frozen peaches? This looks delicious and I can't wait to bake this! Thanks so much!

I put both in the syrup so that you have a couple of tablespoons to drizzle over the cobbler :) I hope you enjoy it.
