Best Southern Peach Cobbler

I have very fond memories of peach cobbler.  My Dad would take us camping and he would make it in the dutch oven.  It is by far one of my most favorite desserts.  Since I don't use a dutch oven unless I'm at Flaming Gorge, I had to learn to make this recipe at home.  After hundreds of trial and errors, I think I finally have gotten it right. 

4 cups peeled, sliced peaches
1 3/4 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup water
8 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 cups milk 
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/4 C. Packed Brown Sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

Combine the peaches, 1 cup sugar, and water in a sauce pan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat. 

Put the butter in a 3-quart baking dish and place in oven to melt. 

Mix remaining 3/4 cup sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup. Sprinkle top with 1/4 C. Brown Sugar. Batter will rise to top during baking. 

Bake for 30 to 45 minutes.

Serve with delicious Vanilla Ice Cream...YUM!


  1. Say your husband was allergic to peaches.. Would apples work just as well?

  2. Chi just cook them down a little bit longer until they are soft.
