Mom's Peach Cobbler (or Pudding)

     My mom makes the best desserts. She has won the dessert contest at her company picnic several times. This is one of the winning recipes (She'll probably kill me for giving out all her secret recipes!). I'm not really sure if it's a cobbler or a pudding. It's a little like bread pudding with peaches in it...In any case it's amazing. There is nothing like old fashioned, warm, peach treats with a little ice cream on the side!
     One of the best things about this dessert is that it's super easy to make. You can use canned peaches if it's not the right season, but this time around I used fresh. My father in law just gave us about five pounds of local peaches that he had picked up, so we had some needed eaten.
     I love peaches, but I hate peeling them. I usually buy nectarines for that very reason. I looked up peaches in an old cookbook and it detailed a quick and easy way to get the skin off....Place a peach in a pan of boiling water for 15 seconds, then remove and submerge in cold water. The skin practically falls right off!
     I made a half recipe in an 8x8 pan, so you can do the same if you are only making it for a couple of people.

batter
1 big can + 1 small can peaches or 10-12 fresh peaches

3/4 c milk
3/4 tsp salt
1-1/2 c flour
3/4c + 1/3 c sugar
6 Tbl butter
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
topping
1-1/2 c sugar
3/8 tsp salt
1-1/2 Tbl flour
1-1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Grease a 9x13 pan
  • Put in the peaches. They will fill the bottom of the pan.
  • Mix batter and spoon over peaches.
  • Combine topping. Sprinkle over batter.
  • Pour 1-1/2 c boiling water over all of it.
  • Bake 50 minutes at 350*

  3. Hi There,

    This looks great! I recently bought 3 two-pound bags of peaches and made my very first peach cobbler yesterday. As I type this now, my grandmother is enjoying a big plate of it with whipped cream. =) The boiling and ice bath soak method to remove the skin is a real time-saver, isn't it?

    I'm sure your Mom won't mind, delicious is for sharing.

    Gourmet on a budget is a great concept! Cooking from scratch has changed my life!

    Nice to meet you.
