When I was a little girl, I wanted to learn to cook just like my Mom. We lived on a farm and had fresh peaches to spare when they were in season. The freezer always had peaches my Mom had put away for us. This was a quick dessert she often whipped up for us on the fly. It is insanely easy and can be memorized by an 8 year old. Every time I taste this cobbler, I remember the pride I felt as a little girl with her first family dish. And of course you can substitute any fruit, fresh or frozen, and I have even used canned.

How to Make Child's Play Peach Cobbler


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
  • 2Melt butter in a 9x9 square glass baking dish or similar pan. Set aside.
  • 3In a medium mixing bowl , combine flour, sugar, and milk, stirring until lump free. A whisk works best for this.
  • 4Pour the batter into the the baking dish over the butter.
  • 5Taste your peaches. If they are not very sweet or especially tart, sprinkle them with a little extra sugar. This step can be done up to a day in advance if needed and the result will be even better.
  • 6Distribute the fruit, including juice over the batter.
  • 7Bake in 350 degree oven for 30-40 min, until golden brown.
    The edges will be buttery and crispy and the center soft and fruity. Cool until warm and serve with vanilla ice cream, or whipped cream if desired.
  • 8Over the years I have used this recipe for all kind of fruits and berries and never had a bad result. I have added a little cinnamon to the fruit from time to time. Vanilla adds an extra dimension to the batter, but I love it just the way I made it as a girl.
    If you use a fruit that is not very juicy, you might add a little more juice. For example, I add about 1/2 cup of apple juice if I use apples.
