This recipe for traditional oven peach cobbler will take you back in time with its wholesome, delectable tastes. This recipe makes a tasty dessert using canned or fresh peaches and a basic batter.


Regarding the Filling:

– 4 cups sliced peaches (drained and either fresh or canned).

If using fresh peaches, add 1/2 cup water to 1 cup of granulated sugar.

Regarding the Batter:

One cup granulated sugar, one cup all-purpose flour, and one tablespoon baking powder

One cup milk – 1/4 tsp salt

One stick of melted unsalted butter (half a cup) and one teaspoon of optional vanilla essence

– Ground cinnamon, optional for sprinkling on top.


1. Preheat the Oven: Turn the oven’s temperature up to 350°F (175°C).

2. Prepare the Peaches:

Place the sliced peaches, 1/2 cup water, and 1 cup sugar in a skillet (if using canned peaches, eliminate the water). After bringing to a boil, simmer for ten minutes or so. Take off the heat

3. Prepare the Batter: – Make the batter in the meanwhile, as the peaches are boiling. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, and one cup sugar in a mixing dish. Blend well. After carefully stirring in the milk to prevent lumps, stir in the melted butter and vanilla extract, if using. Blend until well combined.

4. Put the Cobbler together: Line a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with the batter. Keep still. Evenly spoon hot peach mixture over batter. Once again, don’t move. When baked, the batter will rise to the top and create a crust.

Bake: – You may top with ground cinnamon, if you’d like. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the top is bubbling and golden brown, in a preheated oven.

6. Serve: Before serving, let the cobbler cool a little. Serve warm, topped with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired.

Advice: You may enhance the peach taste by adding a teaspoon of lemon juice and a sprinkle of nutmeg to the combination of peaches. The amount of sugar in the filling may be changed according on how sweet your peaches are.

– This cobbler is a fantastic make-ahead dessert for parties and may be eaten warm or at room temperature.
