Magic Peach Cobbler

This was a treat that my mother used to make when we were kids.

With most cobblers you put the fruit in the dish first and put the crust in on top. This one goes into the pan the other way and turns itself over. It always amazed me that it worked like magic!


1 cup sugar, divided
1/4 cup butter
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
#2 can of peaches (or 1 pint of home canned peaches)

How to:

Drain peaches, reserve syrup, set aside

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Grease a 2 quart glass pan

Cream together 1/2 cup of the sugar and the butter

Mix flour, baking powder and salt together

Add dry ingredients and milk to creamed mixture and beat until smooth.

Pour batter into pan

Spread drained peaches over the batter.

Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup sugar over peaches.

Pour 1 cup of reserved syrup over peaches.

Bake 45 to 50 minutes, until crust is done and golden brown.

Great served with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on top!
