Vintage oven-baked peach cobbler


This recipe for traditional oven peach cobbler will take you back in time with its wholesome, delectable tastes. This recipe makes a tasty dessert using canned or fresh peaches and a basic batter.


For the Filling:

  • 4 cups sliced peaches (drained and either fresh or canned)
  • If using fresh peaches, add 1/2 cup water to 1 cup of granulated sugar

For the Batter:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 stick of melted unsalted butter (1/2 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence (optional)
  • Ground cinnamon (optional, for sprinkling on top)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Turn the oven's temperature up to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Prepare the Peaches:
    • Place the sliced peaches, 1/2 cup water, and 1 cup sugar in a skillet (if using canned peaches, eliminate the water).
    • After bringing to a boil, simmer for ten minutes or so.
    • Take off the heat.
  3. Prepare the Batter:
    • While the peaches are boiling, make the batter.
    • Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, and 1 cup sugar in a mixing dish. Blend well.
    • Carefully stir in the milk to prevent lumps, then stir in the melted butter and vanilla extract, if using. Blend until well combined.
  4. Assemble the Cobbler:
    • Line a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with the batter. Keep still.
    • Evenly spoon hot peach mixture over the batter. Once again, don't move.
    • When baked, the batter will rise to the top and create a crust.
  5. Bake:
    • Top with ground cinnamon, if desired.
    • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the top is bubbling and golden brown, in a preheated oven.
  6. Serve:
    • Let the cobbler cool a little before serving.
    • Serve warm, topped with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired.


  • You may enhance the peach flavor by adding a teaspoon of lemon juice and a sprinkle of nutmeg to the peach mixture.
  • The amount of sugar in the filling can be adjusted according to how sweet your peaches are.
  • This cobbler is a fantastic make-ahead dessert for parties and can be enjoyed warm or at room temperature.
