Old-Fashioned Peach Cobbler

  • Author: Olivia
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 4 - 6 Servings 1x



1/2 stick butter
1 (28-ounce) can peaches, undrained
3 cups sugar, divided
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/4 cups water
1 heaping tablespoon cornstarch
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
2 teaspoons vanilla
Milk, as needed


Preheat your oven to 350°F.
Melt half a stick of butter and use it to generously grease a 13×9-inch metal baking pan. Leave any remaining butter in the pan to enhance the cobbler’s richness.
Prepare the Peach Filling:

In a heavy saucepan, combine the canned peaches with their liquid, 1 cup of sugar, and 1/2 cup of water. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil.
Create the Cornstarch Slurry:

In a small bowl, combine 3/4 cup of water and 1 heaping tablespoon of cornstarch. Add this slurry to the peach mixture, stirring well. Bring it back to a boil and allow it to thicken. Remove from heat.
Prepare the Batter:

In a mixing bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups of sugar, 1 1/2 cups of self-rising flour, 2 teaspoons of vanilla, and enough milk to create a thin batter. The consistency should be slightly thinner than pancake batter.
Assemble and Bake:

Pour the hot peach mixture into the prepared pan with melted butter. Then, pour the batter evenly over the peach mixture.
Final Touch:

In a small bowl, mix 1/2 cup of sugar with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Sprinkle this cinnamon-sugar mixture generously over the batter.
Baking Magic:

Bake the cobbler in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and inviting.
Serve with Love:

Allow the cobbler to cool slightly before serving. For an extra touch of indulgence, serve warm slices with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of freshly whipped cream.
