Not only is this old-fashioned peach cake recipe extremely easy to make from scratch, but it is also made from fresh peaches or canned peaches, so you can enjoy it all year round! It is one of my favorite family recipes from my mother, and although I am biased, I think it is the best of the best!
The peach season is pretty much the best time of year, am I right?! I love to go on “own” farms or buy a big box from a local vendor. Peaches are one of the things I can never get enough of! I have too many favorite peach recipes that I go through every season, starting with my homemade peach freeze jam.
Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe – This easy peach cobbler makes the perfect Southern dessert! A buttery crust tops sweet peaches in this delicious dessert!
1 1/2 cup self-rising flour
8 tablespoon (1 stick) butter
1/2 cup water
2 cup sugar, divided
4 cup peeled, sliced peaches
1 1/2 cup milk
ground cinnamon, optional.
How to make it:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the peaches, 1 cup sugar, and water in a saucepan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Put the butter in a 3-quart baking dish and place in oven to melt.
Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup. Sprinkle top with ground cinnamon, if using. Batter will rise to top during baking. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes.
My post recipe notes
Next time I would probably use more peaches. To me, the fruit is the star of the dessert and there’s no such thing as too much.
I also ended up with a lot of syrup and didn’t use it all as I felt that it would end up too wet. In general this is a very sweet dessert, so be aware.
