Old-Fashioned Oven Peach Cobbler

This recipe delivers the nostalgic flavors of a classic peach cobbler, baked to perfection in the oven. With sweet, juicy peaches nestled beneath a tender, biscuit-like topping, this dessert is sure to evoke memories of simpler times.


  • 6 cups fresh or canned sliced peaches (if using canned, drain excess syrup)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the sliced peaches and granulated sugar. Stir gently until the peaches are coated evenly with sugar. Let the mixture sit for about 10 minutes to allow the sugar to draw out the juices from the peaches.
  3. Pour the melted butter into a 9×13-inch baking dish, spreading it evenly across the bottom.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the milk to the dry ingredients, stirring until you have a smooth batter.
  5. Pour the batter over the melted butter in the baking dish. Do not stir.
  6. Spoon the peach mixture over the batter, distributing it evenly. Again, do not stir.
  7. If desired, sprinkle ground cinnamon over the top of the peach layer for added flavor.
  8. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the edges are bubbly.
  9. Remove the cobbler from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving.
  10. Serve warm, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream if desired. Enjoy this delightful taste of nostalgia!
