Homemade Peach Cobbler

Posted by Tara

This recipe comes from my husband Seth's side of the family. This was his Great-Grandma Butler's cobbler recipe. In her last days before she passed, one of her favorite things to do was make cobbler for the family.  I never had the chance to meet her, but I sure would have liked to. This recipe is simple and delicious.

Here are some of the main ingredients.

First preheat your oven to 375 and peel as many peaches needed to cover the bottom of your pan. I show quite a few here, but most of this was eaten before getting to the pan.

After slicing the peaches, place in the bottom of a 10x7 pan. I actually don't have one (I know what you're thinking) so I decided to use this round one. It totally works in whatever pan you have. Just remember if you go smaller in size on the pan, it may flow over.

Then mix flour, sugar, butter, salt, and milk together in a separate bowl. It will be thick.

Next pour the thick batter on your fruit and lightly spread it around. Mix your other cup of sugar and cornstarch together and pour on top of fruit. I know you are thinking this is A LOT of sugar, but I promise you it is soo worth it in the end!!

Then pour your 2/3 cup of boiling water on top of sugar. Make sure all the sugar is saturated.

Put it in the oven and bake for 45 minutes.

Grandma Butler's Fruit Cobbler Recipe
3/4 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1 cup flour
Fruit of Choice (any kind, canned or fresh)

1 cup sugar
1 TBSP cornstarch

Cover bottom of pan (10x7) with fruit. If using canned fruit, drain first. 
Mix all above ingredients (except fruit and cup of sugar and cornstarch). It will be quite thick. Pour over fruit.  
Now mix 1 cup sugar and 1 Tbsp of cornstarch and sprinkle over top of batter.
Pour 2/3 cup boiling water over top. Bake at 375 for 45 min. 

Enjoy this warm and delicious treat!!

Your cobbler looks absolutely delicious! I've never made a cobbler with a sugar/cornstarch crust - only a biscuit crust. It looks super crisp on top - yum!
