Summer Recipe: Organic Homemade Peach Cobbler

Updated on November 22, 2011

During June, July and August in Texas, peaches grow on trees everywhere.

They are in season, ripe and taste juicy and sweet.

Every summer my mom would go outside to our fruit trees and pick lots of fresh organic peaches. Then she would cook the most amazing peach cobbler!

Here is my mother's (and grandmother's) best summertime homemade peach cobbler recipe. I hope you can enjoy it as much as I do.

Prep/Cooking Time: 1 hour

Yield: 4-6 normal to large servings

Ingredients

1/2 stick of butter

3/4 cup flour

1/8 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 cup sugar or brown sugar

3/4 cup milk

2 cups fresh peaches (sliced) with juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt butter in baking dish.

Sift flour, salt and baking powder together; add sugar and mix.

Slowly stir in milk.

Pour batter over melted butter, do NOT stir.

Sweeten peaches to taste with additional sugar (optional), pour over batter.

Bake for 1 hour or until dark brown on top.

Serve warm with ice cream and enjoy.

Cherries, berries or other fruit may be substituted for peaches.

      - SJmorningsun25 I love peaches too, so I think you will like this recipe a lot.

      - Tom Vogler I love fruit and am always trying to put more of them into my diet. I'm sorry no I don't have any crockpot recipes. A slow cooker is actually on my wishlist this year :)

      My thoughts echo our friend SJmorningsun25. I am looking for good recipes and this sounds quite good. I am trying to get more fruit into my diet and this seems like a great way. When peaches become more readily available here next Summer, hopefully I will remember to look for it via your page.

      In this area, we get good, huge peaches from either here in northwestern Virginia, or there are some peach orchards in Martinsburg, West Virginia about 40 miles away.

      Do you have any crock pot recipes to share? :-)

      That looks amazing. If I could, I would make it tonight - but I am in Panama for the summer. You think this recipe would work with Mangos?
