Take advantage of Summer’s sweet peaches. This dessert only takes 3 steps, making it the perfect recipe for any occasion or summer gathering. This Southern Peach Cobbler is definitely a crowd-pleaser!


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup margarine, melted
  • 1 (29 ounce) can sliced canned peaches, drained
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9×9-inch baking dish.

2. In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, white sugar, baking powder, salt, and vanilla. Pour milk into dry ingredients, and then stir in melted margarine. Mix thoroughly.

3. Pour mixture into prepared baking pan. Arrange peaches on top and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 30 minutes.

Notes: To use fresh peaches, you may substitute 4 cups peeled, sliced peaches for the canned peaches. To peel peaches, bring a pot of water to a boil. Remove from heat. Carefully drop peaches into hot water; let stand for 1 minute. Use a slotted spoon to transfer peaches to an ice water bath; when peaches are cool enough to handle, skin will slip right off.

This recipe makes one 9×9 inch cobbler – Enjoy!

    I guessed and used equal parts white sugar to brown sugar, so 1/2 cup each, and it turned out pretty good! Not knowing what the real recipe is, it wasn’t a complete fail by taking a guess.

    Not good at all… waste of time and ingredients to be honest… says bake 30 min, I followed the recipe and I baked almost an hour to make sure we weren’t eating slop (and yes I drained the peaches). Absolutely nothing like the Pinterest pic, definitely won’t be making this disaster again. Very disappointed

    I used 1/2 cup for the white sugar, and it came out perfect!

    I did 1/4 cup white sugar and completely forgot to add the milk. It turned out great. Im happy i didnt add the milk tho because the canned peaches even after strained produced enough moisture in my opinion
