Super Easy Old-fashioned Peach Cobbler

Submitted by HBHW reader SK


*1 cup flour (self rising)

*1 cup sugar

*1 cup milk
(I have used whole milk, powdered milk, 2% and they all taste equallly good.)

*1 stick margarine

*1 “large” can of sliced peaches, you need the sliced ones, not peach halves. If you have peach halves you’ll need to cut the halves in half. (i think it’s 24 ounces, not sure…. there’s 2 sizes you can get)

I use a 9×9 square baking pan for this, you can adjust for more ingrediants if your pan is larger, or for a larger cobbler. Just remember it’s equal parts flour, sugar, and milk.


*preheat oven to 350F

*mix the flour, sugar, and milk then set aside.

* melt the butter, then pour into the pan

* tilt the pan till it’s evenly coated with the margarine

* pour in peaches at the center of pan, and try to distribute the peaches evenly. yes you need all the juice in the can. don’t drain it.

* now, pour the batter in at the center. the batter will even out when you cook this, and yes, it’ll be enough, though it may not look like it.

Now place the pan in the oven and bake for 45 minutes. the top should be golden brown when the cobbler is done.

It’s important to keep the pan level as you add ingrediants, and when you put it in the oven.

I love this cobbler, it is almost fool proof. I’m not sure how anyone could mess it up. stick to the recipe, don’t alter anything, If you do it exactly like this, you will be rewarded with a great desert. My grand mother was the best cook, and yet she loved my cobbler, and asked me to make it for her more than once.
