Perfect Peach Cobbler

Hello, all!
It's been abnormally stinkin' hot here.
Over a hundred a few days...and it
looks like that's going to continue through the week.
So what do I do?
Turn on the oven.

And who can blame me?
A supplier where I work brought a huge case of sweet,
delicious peaches in the other day.

I think I brought home about 8 lbs.
No one seemed interested and I could see
visions of cobbler dance in my head.

I peeled and sliced about 3 cups worth.
I threatened to stab my husband if he didn't stop eating them out of the bowl.

These were pretty sweet, so I just added about 2 tbsp. of sugar and stirred them
around and spread them in the buttered pan.
I may or may not have slurped out the sugary peach juice after I dumped them.
Just sayin'.

The recipe below says to use and 8x8 pan.
As you can see...this is not that pan.
I recently BROKE my 8 inch square stone by dropping a glass spice jar in it.
I almost cried.

Basic ingredients, besides the peaches, of course...
Flour, baking powder, salt, milk, sugar,
butter (which I just noticed is upside down)...AND...

the brown sugar I forgot to stick in the first picture.
You know you wanted to see it.

Mix all the dry ingredients.
Whisk in the milk and melted butter.
Add vanilla if you please...I did...LOVE it!
Pour the batter over the peaches.

Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes.
It will be bubbly, golden and yummy!


A little while later I found it like this:

My daughter said it was the best peach cobbler she'd ever eaten.
But I don't know how much cobbler she's had the opportunity to taste.

So, if you find yourself with a stack of peaches
and feel the itch to bake something yummy...
here's the recipe!

Perfect Peach Cobbler

Printable Recipe

· ½ cup brown sugar

· ½ cup white sugar, plus 2-4 tbsp.

· 1 cup all-purpose flour

· 2 tsp. baking powder

· ½ tsp. salt

 · 1 stick butter

· 1 cup milk

· 3 cups sliced peaches

· *optional* pure vanilla extract


1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. Peel and slice peaches. Not too thin or too thick. Depending on sweetness of peaches, stir in 2-4 tbsp. of white sugar.

3. Melt butter in a microwavable dish. Use wrapper to lightly butter an 8x8 baking dish.

4. Stir flour, ½ cup each brown and white sugar, baking powder and salt together in a mixing bowl.

5. Whisk milk into flour mixture. Add melted butter and whisk until blended…careful not to over mix. {*optional* add 1 tsp. pure vanilla}

6. Spread peaches evenly into bottom of baking dish.

7. Pour the batter evenly over the peaches.

8. Bake for 50-60 minutes until golden brown and yummy.

This is easily doubled or one and a halfed...if that's a real term :)


p.s. I'm partying here:

  7. You crack me up wanting to stab your husbands hand! That's how its around my house. Fruit will sit there but the minute I start cleaning and putting them in a bowl I have a whole audience swooping in trying to eat them. Thank you so much for joining us and sharing this recipe on our BBQ Block Party.

  8. We love peach cobbler in the fall. Thanks for the great recipe!
