Old Fashion Homemade Peach Cobbler – The Simple Way

With summer here and all the wonderful fruits ripening on the trees what is better than baking a nice fresh cobbler?

A baker I am. Since I can remember I was in the kitchen with flour, milk sugar and some flavoring trying to make something sweet and delicious. One day this old lady showed me what she called a poor mans cobbler and I have made this ever since, when I wanted something sweet, easy and fast.

You`ll need the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup of self rising flour
  • 3/4 cup of white sugar
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 1 can of peaches in heavy syrup Or fresh peaches sliced and cooked in sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of Vanilla flavor
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 1/2 stick of butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Put butter in a 9 x 11 baking pan, put into the oven and allow to melt while mixing the rest.
  3. Put the sugar and the flour in a mixing bowl, slowly add the milk, mixing well each addition of milk, this will prevent lumps.
  4. Add the vanilla and the cinnamon. Mix well.
  5. Carefully remove baking pan from oven, add the flour mixture to the melted butter.
  6. Open the can of peaches and place peaches all over the top of the flour mixture. Drizzle 1/2 of the peach syrup over the top of those.
  7. Bake for 40 minutes or until its golden brown and bubbly in the middle.
  8. Serve hot with a scoop of ice cream or plain.
  9. You may also use berries instead of peaches, strawberries, blueberries or blackberries.

  1. I love cobbler, especially made with fresh fruit. One cobbler I think I’ll try next spring will be strawberry-rhubarb. I’m a fan of strawberry-rhubarb pie and if something tastes good in a pie, it will probably taste good in a cobbler, too. I’ve just never tried making the cobbler version.
