Prize Peach Cobbler

Peach Cobbler recipe that is a blue-ribbon winner. Traditional recipe from the author's grandma that is easy to prepare and tastes fresh and magnificent.


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar — divided
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter — (1 stick)
  • 3 pounds fresh ripe peaches* — (5-6 peaches)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder. Mix in 1 cup sugar. Slowly stir in milk to make batter.
  2. Melt butter in deep casserole dish (about 3 quarts). Pour batter over melted butter. Do not stir.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Carefully add peaches (I use tongs) and boil for about 1 minute. Remove peaches from pot and plunge into a bowl of cold water to stop cooking. Skins can now be easily removed with fingers. Slice peaches into bite-sized pieces.
  4. In a clean bowl, Mix the peeled, sliced peaches and 3/4 cup sugar thoroughly and carefully spoon them over the batter..
  5. Bake 1 hour. Batter should be nicely browned on top before removing from oven. Top with heavy cream or vanilla ice cream.
