Fresh peaches are called for in this recipe, but fresh ripe nectarines or drained canned peaches will work as well. Serve this super easy cobbler warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or drizzle with some plain heavy cream.

As the cobbler bakes, the cake-like batter partially covers the cinnamon-spiced peaches. 

It's a fabulous summer recipe, perfect for a cookout or Fourth of July celebration. Enjoy it any time of the year!


Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Heat oven to  375 F (190 C/Gas 5).

  3. Pour melted butter into a 2-quart baking dish (11-by-7-inch or 9-inch square).

  4. In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of the sugar, the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir to blend.

  5. Stir in the milk and vanilla until blended.

  6. Pour the batter over the melted butter.

  7. Toss the peaches with the remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.

  8. Arrange the peach slices over the batter.

  9. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. The top will be browned and the cake will begin to pull away from the sides of the pan.

  10. Serve warm with a little heavy cream, whipped topping, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
