My mom’s been making this peach cobbler for as long as I can remember and when I asked her where it came from, she said it’s been in her family for years. As promised, here you go, a good ole’ Southern Peach Cobbler recipe that is about as easy as they come.
It has a stick of butter, maybe that’s one reason why it’s so good. We don’t shy away from butter here in the South. Just ask Paula! 🙂
With vanilla ice cream, it’s a real treat! Mom and dad buy boxes of peaches at a local place when they are driving up to their house in the mountains and the boxes are $5 for over-ripe peaches. Mom puts them all to good use and not many are ruined.
She also adds a little sugar to her peaches when they are peeled, so you can do that or skip that step if you don’t need it that sweet. I think the sugar in the topping would be enough.
Out of the oven and ready to eat, after cooling a bit.
Mom is such a great cook, she has fed her family for years and years.
And she also has a green thumb too and grows the prettiest African violets on her back porch.
Hope you enjoy my mom’s Peach Cobbler!

Oh, does that ever look delicious and something I can probably actually make! I’ll be trying it soon.
Your mom is a sweetie!!
That looks delicious! I’ll have to try it. Right now I’m hooked on sugar-free peach pie that really isn’t that great (purchased at Wal*Mart).

Wow. I was expecting a long list of ingredients. This is a recipe that I want to try my hand at making.
Thanks Rhoda! I am looking forward to trying this but will have to wait ’til summer time.
Your mom can cook for us any day! What a sweetie and with a green thumb, too. Her African violet should be in a magazine.
Thank you for sharing! One time I made one with cinnamon and blech! Never will do that again! I am making this one!
Yum – I have some overly ripe peaches to use for this – thanks for sharing – perfect timing – thanks Rhoda’s Mom 🙂 from Richmond, VA!
Just made this for my bunco group and it was devoured. Thanks so much for the recipe!!!
When you say Dot all over with one stick of butter, do you just cut the butter into numerous small pads and randomly place on top of the flour mixture?
HI, Jami, YES that’s it!
can you use all purpose flour?
Yes, that should work fine.

Your Mother has to be one special lady. All that she cooks at her age. I dread even frying an egg, lol just watching them does my heart good thinking of my parent’s. You girls are so lucky to still have them with the health they have been blessed with.
Thank you, Joyce, we have certainly been blessed to have the parents we do! She is amazing and out does me.
