Old-Fashioned Peach Cobbler

Home / Recipes / Old-Fashioned Peach Cobbler

Late summer is a time for peaches, and this easy dessert won’t disappoint. There’s a reason grandmas have been making for generations. It comes together in minutes and, while it’s good enough for company, you’re going to want to keep it all to yourself. 


  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1 c. flour
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 c. milk
  • 4 c. sliced peaches (about 4-5 peaches)
  • 1 T. lemon juice
  • freshly grated nutmeg


  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • Melt the butter in a 9 x 13 pan in the oven while it preheats then set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan bring peaches, 1 cup sugar, and lemon juice to a boil. When sugar is dissolved, remove from heat and set aside.
  • Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt; add milk until just combined.
  • Pour batter over melted butter. DO NOT STIR
  • Pour peach mixture over the batter. DO NOT STIR
  • Grate a bit of nutmeg over the top.
  • Bake for for 40-45 minutes, until golden brown.

Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

You’re welcome!
