How to make an old fashioned peach cobbler just like Grandma would make.


  • 3 cups sliced peaches (canned)
  • 2 tablespoons soft brown sugar


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. Grease or oil a 9x9 baking dish.
    3. Spread sliced peaches in a single layer in the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons soft brown sugar over the top of the peaches.
    4. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Add the cream and stir until just combined (the dough will be quite wet).
    5. Spoon the cobbler dough onto the top of the fruit mixture in the baking dish.
    6. Smooth the batter with the back of a spoon, and sprinkle with brown sugar.
    7. Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes until crust is golden brown.
    8. Remove from oven and set aside for 5 to 10 minutes to cool before serving.
