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 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 2 - 3 cups canned, sliced peaches with some of the juice
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F
  2. Place 1/4 cup butter in 9x9 glass baking dish and pop into the oven for a few minutes to melt.
  3. In a medium sized bowl or 4 cup measuring cup, mix dry ingredients, then stir in the milk.
  4. Place batter by large spoonfulls over the melted butter in dish, but don’t mix.
  5. Distribute 1 can or a 750 ml jar of canned, sliced peaches on top: then drizzle about 1/4 cup of the juice over the batter.
  6. Bake 35 - 45 minutes. Do not underbake, let it brown a bit for a more carmelized texture. Enjoy warm with ice cream. Serves 6


  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

  3. Oh this looks very good Anneliese!

  4. oh this just looks so refreshing and good

  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.

  6. This recipe motivated me to can peaches this year. Can't wait to make it, yum!

  7. Luv when I can go to pantry for a quick dessert. Made this today, served w/ice cream on top. Used (1) 15 oz can peaches, next time will use two. Thx for this great recipe, so quick, easy and VERY good!

  8. Made these w the rest of a basket of lackluster peaches and it was great!!

  9. I added some cinnamon to my batter.....yum! So easy and equally as good as my favorite cobbler recipe that takes much more effort.
