Crispy Peach Cobbler

My parents went on a short trip to an auction and discovered a fruit stand along the way selling peaches. My mom called to see if I wanted any.

Be still my heart. . .

Peaches are one of my most favorite summer fruits. Okay, I love strawberries and cherries too, but peaches made into a crisp, buttery, peach cobbler is perfection and so easy to make.

To peel a peach, I drop a ripe peach into boiling water for about a minute.

Then you can put the peaches into cool water until you are able to handle them and they should peel easier.

To make peach cobbler, slice 4 cups of peaches.

Put a stick of butter into a 9x 13 " pan and pop it into your warm oven until melted. My kitchen was so hot that I just let the pan with the butter sit on the counter and it melted just fine. It has been so crazy hot around here.

Yes, I said a WHOLE stick of butter. When we are talking about a good peach cobbler, it is not time to count calories. ☺ Trust me.

Place the four cups of sliced peaches right on top of all of the melty, buttery, yumminess and then pour your batter made from 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 3/4 cup milk right over the top of the peaches.

Bake for about 40 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.

Serve warm with a lot of homemade vanilla ice cream.

It really is best served the day you make it, so we went ahead and ate the whole thing.
I think I could have eaten more if there had been any left. The crispy, buttery edges and corners are the absolute best.

Just looking at the empty pan makes me kind of sad. I might need to make more.

Crispy Peach Cobbler
1/2 c. butter (1 stick) melted
1 c. flour
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
3/4 c. milk
4 cups fresh or frozen peaches (could try other fruits)

Place butter in the bottom of a 9x 13 " pan. In bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in milk and blend until smooth. Place fruit over melted butter in pan, and drizzle batter over the top. Bake at 375° for 40 minutes or until brown and bubbly. Serve warm with ice cream.☺


  1. Oh yum!!!! I copied this one down!

  2. OHHHHHHHH!!! That sounds SO yummmmmy! I want some peaches so I can make one. I saw some today while at the grocers and they were for 1.49 a lb., I don't think so! Hopefully, they will go down in price. And when they do, I will come here for the recipe.
