Simply Yummy Cobbler

How can something so decadent be so crazy simple to make?  Looking closely at cobbler and all its fruity, doughy goodness, it's really hard to believe it doesn't take hours to create.  

But, looks are definitely deceiving in this case.  Before we go any further, I must warn you ... this recipe contains good, old fashioned butter.  I'm from the South, did you really expect anything less?  :)

A little twist on traditional peach cobbler is the addition of pears.  This combination was an accidental discovery - when I discovered I didn't have two cans of peaches in the pantry!   

If you're still with me, these are the ingredients:

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
  • 1 can sliced peaches (15 oz.)
  • 1 can sliced pears (15 oz.)
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • Vanilla ice cream

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Melt butter (I used salted butter because it's what I had on hand) and pour into a 13" x 9" glass baking dish.

Add 1 can sliced peaches with liquid (do not drain).  I used the version in natural juice.

Add 1 can sliced pears with only 1/2 can of liquid (do not use entire can of liquid).

In a bowl mix flour and sugar.  Add milk and stir until batter is smooth.

Spoon batter over butter and fruit mixture, and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Bake for 45 minutes, or until top of cobbler is lightly browned.

Remove from oven and let sit 5 minutes then dig in!  Best served warm with vanilla ice cream.

If you don't bake much and would like to boost your baking confidence, cobbler is a great recipe to start with.  Hope you give it a try!

    1. I wasn't so certain the pear texture would be a good thing but somehow it really was. So nice when experiments turn out that way. Thanks for visiting!

  4. This recipe looks YUM!! I love cobbler and I totally want to make this! Thank you for sharing and linking up with us over at the Welcome Home Wednesdays Link Party!!

  5. I have both canned peaches and pears, but I don't have self-rising flour! Or ice cream, for that matter. Well, I guess I'll just have to figure out how much baking powder to add to the flour and buy some ice cream on my next grocery shopping trip! Thanks for this cobbler recipe!

    1. Hi Bless! I've converted all purpose flour to self rising in the past and it turned out fine. I used 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt for each cup of all purpose flour. Can't help you on the ice cream, tho! :)
