Peach Cobbler

I love it when recipes remind me of a special friend. This cobbler recipe comes from my friend Gloria . . . who is from Zimbabwe and would call this pudding. I have enjoyed making this myself for many years now. It is easy, quick and oh-so-delicious! This is the reason you want to have canned peaches and ice cream on hand.

Peach Cobbler
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ cup milk

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Place 1/4 cup butter in 9x9 baking dish and pop into the oven to melt.
  3. In a medium sized bowl or 4 cup measuring cup, mix dry ingredients, then stir in the milk.
  4. Pour batter over the melted butter in dish, but don’t mix.
  5. Place 1 can or half a pint jar of canned, sliced peaches, drained, on top.
  6. Bake 30 - 40 min at 350F. Enjoy warm with ice cream.

  1. Same ingredients but different method of construction than my mother made. We always had it with vanilla sauce or pouring cream.

  2. Looks really yummy. Fruit desserts are high on my favorite list, and i like that this is one that can be made when fresh peaches are no longer available. Kathy

  5. Looks yummy and also looks like it could be made with other fruits - i.e. plums, pears. It reminds me a bit of the fruit cocktail cake that was the rage when I was a newly wed.
