The Ultimate Peach Cobbler Recipe (Easier than You Think!)

  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 60 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour 20 mins


This Ultimate Peach Cobbler Recipe has been passed down in my family for years. The simplicity of the ingredients allows the juicy sweet flavor of the peaches to shine. A true staple of summer!


  • 8 large peaches
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 egg
  • 6 Tbsp butter


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Wash peaches, then slice and peel them. Layer them into a baking dish (I use this 11 inch roasting dish but a 9×13 Pyrex will work). Pour the 1/2 cup of water over the peaches.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, beat the egg, then add the sugar and flour. Mix well until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Spread evenly over the peaches.
  4. Melt 6 Tbsp of butter and pour over the peaches and topping as evenly as you can.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes (uncovered) and 400 degrees, then lower temperature to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 35-60 minutes until the peaches are bubbling and the top turns golden brown. The time will vary based on the size of your baking dish and depth of your peach layer.
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. Scoop into bowls and serve with Vanilla Mayfield Ice Cream.
