Old-Fashioned Peach Cobbler


  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 (28-ounce) can peaches, undrained
  • 3 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 heaping tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • milk as needed



Preheat oven to 350°F.

Melt 1/2 stick butter and grease 13×9-inch metal baking pan, leaving any remaining butter in the pan.

In heavy saucepan, combine 1 (28-ounce) can peaches with liquid, 1 cup sugar, and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil.

In small bowl, combine 3/4 cup water and 1 heaping tablespoon cornstarch, and add to peach mixture. Return to boil.

In mixing bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups sugar, 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour, 2 teaspoons vanilla and enough milk to make a thin batter. The mixture should be a little thinner than a pancake batter.

Pour hot peaches into pan with melted butter and pour batter all over peach mixture. Top with cinnamon-sugar mixture made from combining 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
