  1. Preheat the Oven: Set your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Prepare the Peaches:
    • If using fresh peaches: In a saucepan, combine the sliced peaches, 1/2 cup water, and 1 cup of granulated sugar. Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
    • If using canned peaches: Drain the peaches and skip the water. Combine with the sugar and simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Prepare the Batter:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup white sugar, 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Mix well.
    • Slowly stir in 1 cup milk to avoid lumps, then add the melted butter and vanilla extract (if using). Mix until well combined.
  4. Assemble the Cobbler:
    • Pour the batter into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Do not stir.
    • Spoon the hot peach mixture evenly over the batter. Again, do not stir. The batter will rise to the top and form a delicious crust as it bakes.
  5. Bake:
    • Sprinkle ground cinnamon on top if desired.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the top is bubbly and golden brown.
  6. Serve:
    • Let the cobbler cool slightly before serving.
    • Enjoy warm, topped with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream if desired.


  • For added flavor, consider adding 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and a pinch of nutmeg to the peach mixture.
  • Adjust the sugar in the filling based on the sweetness of your peaches.
  • This cobbler can be made ahead of time and served warm or at room temperature, making it perfect for gatherings.


Enjoy your delightful old-fashioned peach cobbler!
