This recipe captures the essence of this timeless treat, using simple ingredients and a straightforward method.


Classic Peach Cobbler: A Simple Summer Delight



Ingredient Quantity
Self-Rising Flour 1 cup
Melted Butter ½ cup
White Sugar ¾ cup, plus more for sprinkling
Canned Sliced Peaches in Syrup (undrained) 9 ounces
Ground Cinnamon (optional) for sprinkling


  1. Preheat and Prepare (5 minutes):

    • Turn on your oven and preheat it to 350°F (175°C).
    • Grease a 9×9 inch baking dish with butter or cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  2. Make the Buttery Base (2 minutes):

    • Pour the melted butter into the prepared baking dish, tilting the dish to spread the butter evenly over the bottom.
  3. Mix the Dry Ingredients (2 minutes):

    • In a mixing bowl, combine the self-rising flour and ¾ cup of white sugar. Use a whisk or spoon to ensure everything is well mixed. This dry mixture will become the cobbler’s topping.
  4. Assemble the Cobbler (2 minutes):

    • Pour the flour-sugar mixture evenly over the melted butter in the baking dish. Do not stir the wet and dry ingredients. The flour will absorb the butter as it bakes, creating that delightful crispy and golden topping.
  5. Spoon in the Peaches (2 minutes):

    • Open the can of sliced peaches and pour them, along with their syrup, over the flour mixture in the baking dish. The syrup adds sweetness and moisture to the cobbler.
  6. Bake to Perfection (45-50 minutes):

    • Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 45 to 50 minutes. The golden brown and crispy topping, along with bubbling peaches, indicate that the cobbler is done.
  7. Serve Warm (a few minutes):

    • Take the cobbler out of the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving. This allows the filling to set slightly.
  8. Finishing Touches and Enjoyment:

    • Sprinkle additional white sugar over the top for extra sweetness and a bit of crunch.
    • For an extra flavor layer, you can optionally dust the cobbler with ground cinnamon.
    • Serve the peach cobbler warm, on its own or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. The warm peaches with the sweet and buttery topping are a delicious combination!
