Homemade Peach Cobbler

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! 🙂

peach cobbler and ice cream

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!

    Your Mother looks so pretty. I am so blessed to know her and your Dad. They have always been so gracious to share meals with me. I love you all.

  2. Super simple recipe, can’t wait to try it.

    I can see where you get your great genes from, your Mom looks so young!

  3. Rhoda-
    Thank you for sharing!! It is very similar to my aunt’s peach cobbler we grew up with. In our family cobblers were affectionately called “mess.” Peach Mess was always one of my personal favorites. I’m going to try your version this week with a few modifications (dairy free and gluten free). Ill let you know how it goes!! Best- Tracey

  4. Looks delish. Tomorrow is my mother’s birthday, and I think I will bake this for her.

    Tell Mom she looks beautiful and we all love her just as much as Dad. You are so blessed to have them in your life, thank you for sharing them with us. Can’t wait to try the Peach Cobbler, my absolute favorite summer dessert. The recipe looks simple and delicious.

  6. I love how simple and delish this looks! My family thanks you for sharing… they’re in for a treat!

  7. I’m so happy she uses fresh peaches in her cobbler! I’m going to give it a try. 95% of the recipes you see for peach cobbler call for canned peaches. They are flavorless. Please let your mom know how much we appreciate her sharing the recipe. 🙂

  8. The ministry of your parents lives is profound in its simplicity.

    Looks delish! Please thank your lovely Mom for sharing her recipe. Can we get the recipe for the African Violet, too! That plant looks spectacular!!

  10. Hay Cuz!
    You are right! That is the best cobbler recipe ever. One of the “Aunts” gave me that recipe many years ago . It’s great with BlackBerries or blueberries also. In the winter I buy a package of frozen mixed berries and it is great.
    I got an iPhone this past winter and have been able to keep up with you every day. I have loved following you. I went back and followed your house renovation and several other older blogs. I even saw a picture of me at the Blount reunion. It’s also been a pleasure to see pictures of aunt Iris and uncle Al . I feel like we talk every day! It’s been fun! Love you, Joy

    • Hey, Joy! That just made my day, I had no idea you were out there reading. Love you, cuz!

      • Helen Blount says:

        Just read about a Blount Reunion….We are Blounts also…would love to learn more about your Blounts….Blessings, Helen Blount ….going to cook this peach cobbler soon…looks delish!

  11. I grew up eating this as a very special summer treat.
    Sometime, winter treat because mom always
    froze those treasures for off season baking surprises.
    Your mom’s violet is stupendous!
    I love love love a healthy african violet –
    As an aside thought, relish the smell of home.
    Because you always will hunger for it.
    So proud for you and your wonderful parents,

  12. Rhoda, definitely will try this cobbler, looks delis…. and those African violets – AMAZING!! Tks for sharing..

  13. Nothing is better than peach cobbler with ice cream!

    My grandmother grew African Violets too. So pretty!

  14. Melesa Garrison says:

    Peach cobbler is one of my very favorite desserts…Tell your precious mother Thank You SO Much for sharing!

  15. Love the pictures… My grandmother made a mean peach cobbler and LOVED her African violets. She went home to the Lord 3 years ago and would have been 92 on the 31st.. I bet she is in Heaven tending to her violets now..

  16. How odd! I was out to lunch today and dessert was peach and redcurrant cobbler and was delish! I am going to do your recipe very soon, as peaches are in season now, and what better use for them. Thanks my dear.

  17. Both of your parents are awesome!! Thanks for sharing them with us and your family’s recipe!!

  18. Thanks for sharing your sweet Mom’s recipe! I’m going to make it this week.

  19. Rhoda your mom looks so beautiful. Your parents are so great. Cobbler recipe looks awesome.

  20. I love your Mom…so sweet. I’m going to try this with some fresh picked blackberries a friend just brought me. I always add a little sugar to the fruit( just like my mom did) because it draws out the juices. I guess I could cut back on that in the topping so it’s not too sweet. Thanks for another great food post.

  21. I am really looking forward to baking this. Thanks so much for sharing. I love that picture of your Mom!

  22. Malinda Clay says:

    We call this “Cup-a Cup-a Cup-a”. Tastes great and as easy as can be. Love your blog.

  23. Oh, does that ever look delicious and something I can probably actually make! I’ll be trying it soon.

    Your mom is a sweetie!!


  24. 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).

  25. Thank you for the recipe -Our peaches in PA are just now starting to be ripe 🙂
    and let your mother know that I have never seen an african violet with that many blooms , esp once it was cared for in a home.

  26. Wow. I was expecting a long list of ingredients. This is a recipe that I want to try my hand at making.

  27. Thanks Rhoda! I am looking forward to trying this but will have to wait ’til summer time.

  28. 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.

  29. Thank you for sharing! One time I made one with cinnamon and blech! Never will do that again! I am making this one!

  30. Yum – I have some overly ripe peaches to use for this – thanks for sharing – perfect timing – thanks Rhoda’s Mom 🙂 from Richmond, VA!

  31. Just made this for my bunco group and it was devoured. Thanks so much for the recipe!!!

  32. 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?

  33. can you use all purpose flour?
