Peach cobbler...Mmmm!

Ok, I can't have a blog named "Just Peachy in Dixie" without sharing my peach cobbler recipe! :)  I don't know where this recipe originated from, but my mother in law passed it to me.  This is my go to recipe for the "Bring a dessert" gatherings.  It is SO simple, but very delicious!

-Preheat oven to 350
-Put one whole stick of butter in baking dish (I use a 9 X 13 glass dish), and      put that in the oven to melt while doing the following steps.
-In bowl mix: 1 cup of self rising flour, 1 cup of sugar, and 1/2 cup of milk
-Once butter has melted, evenly pour batter over the butter
-Then, take one large can (I think it's 15oz) of sliced peaches in heavy syrup, and evenly pour over batter.
-Bake until golden brown.  (which is usually around 30 minutes)

When taking this to a gathering, I always have to make two.  One for sharing, and one for keeping! :)

Tip: I have also done this with cherry pie filling (I just added some sugar to the filling before adding over the batter, to give a little more sweetness), fresh blackberries from out back, and I even made a chicken pot pie version.

For the chicken pot pie, I just used left over rotisserie chicken, a can of cream of chicken soup, about 3/4 can of water, chopped veggies from my produce bin that needed using up, salt, pepper, and paprika to taste.  Just pour the filling in the middle of the batter (batter without sugar, but with salt, and any savory seasonings instead ;). The batter will rise just around the edges.

This looks great. I love passed down recipes. They always seem to be the best. And I'm always grabbing peaches at the farmer's market, so I always need more recipes for them! Thanks! And thanks for stoppin by my blog!

No baking powder or self rising flour? Just wondering before I try it!

I'm sorry, I should have mentioned that the 1 cup of flour is self rising flour. I don't use any baking powder. Thanks for the inquiry, and be sure to come back and let me know what you think. :)

I tried this and it was so good! It's an easy recipe to keep the ingredients on hand for company. I included this and the name of your site in the comments section about an article about hospitality at She asked me to post it to and enter it into a "young budding cooks" contest. I don't usually have self-rising flour on hand, but it is very easy to adjust the recipe using all-purpose flour. To make 1 cup self-rising flour, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
