This Blue Ribbon rustic peach cobbler is a Southern tradition. Easy and quick to make, I’ll warn you its anything but pretty; but oh my goodness its delicious! Top with a dollop of fresh  whipped cream or a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream. Rustic Peach Cobbler

We love peaches! And this time of year, when the peaches have hit the market, we love to get several pounds just for snacking on. The most delicous peaches I’ve found here are the white peaches, creamy white flesh with just a fleck of red, right at the pit. But for cobbler, it doesn’t matter what kind of peach you use, as long as its ripe and juicy.  You could even use frozen peaches, if there are no good peaches in your area to be had.  For this recipe, I  used  Freestone Peaches, they’re the most popular variety grown around this area. They are perfect for canning, jams, jellies and desserts of all kinds. *A freestone peach is one where the flesh separates from the stone (pit).  When the fruit is cut in half, there is easy separation at the pit and the pit can be removed by hand.  It may even fall out if you tip the cut fruit over.  Freestone peaches are popular for home canning because their ease of preparation.  Clingstone peaches have flesh that clings to the stone.  When the fruit is cut in half, it is very difficult to separate the two halves because the flesh is stuck in the pit.

Crazy easy dessert, use all those fresh peaches you have or even use frozen! Adapted from a Family recipe.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Southern
Serves: 8
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 cups fresh peach slices
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  1. Melt butter in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish.
  2. Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt; add milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter over butter (do not stir).
  3. Bring remaining 1 cup sugar, peach slices, and lemon juice to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly; pour over batter (do not stir).
  4. Bake at 375° for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve cobbler warm or cool.
I use a 13x9 baking dish, somehow however some of the deliciousness always bubbles over the sides. So when cooking, use the middle rack in your oven, and place a sheet of foil directly beneath the pan on the bottom rack.

  1. OMG is there anything better to finish off a good meal than with this melt in your mouth peach cobbler? I think not and yours is beautiful! I lived in the South for many years and I rarely had a peach cobbler that looked this good.

      Thanks Maureen ! This cobbler can be what ever fresh or frozen fruit you happen to have. Right now, its peach season, hence Peach Cobbler. But blackberry, blueberry, cherry, strawberry even, or raspberry, cobbler is so easy. And its a great company dessert!
