EASY PEACH COBBLER
Peaches and I have a bad history. I won’t go into too much detail but our relationship has been rocky with a long road of making up to do.
Then there’s my husband who says every time he eats peach cobbler he wishes it was apple cobbler. Another hater.
Needless to say this easy peach cobbler had a whole lot to prove.
But I’m The Girl Who Ate Everything, so no food is off limits…no calories left unexplored.
Can you believe there are only four ingredients in this cobbler? I was skeptical to say the least that any amount of flavor could come of this. Here’s what happened: A little bit of the flour mixture is sprinkled on the bottom of the pan and mixes with the juices of the peaches while cooking making it thick. The crust is the perfect combo of light with a slight crispness on top. It’s not a biscuit top that some cobblers have.
I was a little worried that it was too wet when I stuck it in the oven but after it baked and rested for a couple of minutes it was perfect. If you like yours on the drier side just don’t add all of the liquid from the peaches.

Easy Peach Cobbler
This easy peach cobbler is a dump and go recipe, perfect because you can keep the ingredients on hand for a quick dessert.
- 1 cup self-rising flour see Note for substitution
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar plus 2 additional Tablespoons for topping
- 1/2 cup 1 stick butter, divided (and melted separately)
- 1 (28 ounce) can sliced peaches in heavy syrup, undrained
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium-size mixing bowl coarsely mix the flour, 3/4 cup of the sugar, and 1/4 cup melted butter together. You can add a dash of cinnamon here if you want too.
Sprinkle about one-third of the flour mixture on the bottom of an 8x8 baking dish. The flour mixture will slightly mix with the syrup of the peaches while baking and thicken it up a bit.
Add the peaches with their juice to the dish. If you like your cobbler on the dry side don't add all of the liquid. It was perfect in my opinion.
Sprinkle the peaches with the remaining sugar/flour mixture. Sprinkle the top with the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar. Drizzle with the remaining 1/4 cup of melted butter.There will be a lot of liquid and it will look wet. Don't worry, the flour mixture will soak up the liquid.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and bubbly. Let cobbler sit for at least 5 minutes before serving.
Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
This can easily be doubled in a 9x13 baking dish.
Self-Rising Flour Substitute: If you don't keep self-rising flour on hand, make your own.
For every 1 cup of self-rising flour needed mix together: 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda.
Want to use fresh peaches?: When using fresh peaches, peel and slice them, and sprinkle the slices with an additional 1/2 cup sugar. Refrigerate them for 2 to 3 hours before using and they will make their own syrup.
