old time oven peach cobbler

Here’s a classic old-fashioned oven peach cobbler recipe that will transport you back in time with its comforting, delicious flavors. This recipe uses fresh or canned peaches and a simple batter to create a delicious dessert.


For the Filling:
– 4 cups sliced peaches (fresh or canned, drained)
– 1 cup granulated sugar
– 1/2 cup water (if using fresh peaches)

For the Batter:
– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– 1 cup granulated sugar
– 1 tablespoon baking powder
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 1 cup milk
– 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), melted
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
– Ground cinnamon (for sprinkling on top, optional)


1. Preheat the Oven:
– Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

2. Prepare the Peaches:
– In a saucepan, combine the sliced peaches, 1 cup of sugar, and 1/2 cup of water (omit the water if using canned peaches). Bring to a boil and let simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

3. Prepare the Batter:
– While the peaches are simmering, prepare the batter. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, 1 cup of sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
– Stir in the milk slowly to avoid lumps, and then add the melted butter and vanilla extract (if using). Mix until smooth.

4. Assemble the Cobbler:
– Pour the batter into a 9×13-inch baking dish. Do not stir.
– Spoon the hot peach mixture evenly over the batter. Again, do not stir. The batter will rise to the top during baking to form a crust.

5. Bake:
– If desired, sprinkle ground cinnamon over the top.
– Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and bubbly.

6. Serve:
– Allow the cobbler to cool slightly before serving. Serve warm, optionally with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

– For a more intense peach flavor, you can add a teaspoon of lemon juice and a dash of nutmeg to the peach mixture.
– You can adjust the sugar in the filling according to the sweetness of your peaches.
– This cobbler can be enjoyed warm or at room temperature and is a great make-ahead dessert for gatherings.

Enjoy your homemade old-fashioned peach cobbler!
