My Favorite Peach Cobbler

When I was eight years old, my family drove from Texas to Tennessee in our brand new car for a summer vacation.  


The last night of the trip, my mom made this for dessert and I kept sneaking back into the kitchen for an extra spoonful. Before my mom caught me, I'd eaten nearly the entire pan.


So the next morning, we got in the car and started the drive back. I fell asleep in the back seat and woke up feeling not so good.

Well, I guess I ate a little too much cobbler and became a bit ill. In the car. The brand new car. At the beginning of a long drive back to Texas. In the middle of summer.

Don't ask me why I didn't tell anyone to pull over. I have no answers now just like I had no answers then.

And my sisters and parents just can't seem to forget that unfortunate experience. 


Um... Bon Appetit! 

I'm all about sharing appropriate and appetizing anecdotes.

Peach Cobbler

1 stick butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup milk
2 cups peaches (fresh is best)

Whisk sugar, flour and milk together. Stir in the melted butter and pour into a greased 9 x 12 pan. Sprinkle the peaches on top. Sprinkle extra sugar on top if you wish. Bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes.

  1. Oh no! Funny story, however it still looks delicious :)

  2. I STILL love dessert so much that I eat more than I should (some tummy aches, but no getting sick). I love cobbler (my great grandma from Georgia used to always make it when I was little)--can't wait to try this recipe!

  3. Great recipe. I love peaches and we always go picking at the end of the summer-so I will have to try your recipe.

  4. I have been looking for a cobbler recipe. Thanks for sharing!
