No. 1 Fruit Stand Peach Cobbler

Yield 6 to 8 servings
Notes: Mary-Lou Evans makes this easy, homey peach cobbler for her family, including son Bob Evans and daughter Barb Schwabe and her husband, Russ. The family runs the No. 1 Fruit Stand together.


  • 3 pounds ripe peaches
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Whipping cream or ice cream

How to Make It

  1. Prep and cook time: About 1 hour

  2. Peel and pit peaches and slice into ½-inch-thick wedges, dropping slices into a shallow 2½- to 3-quart oval or other baking dish. Gently mix in 1/3 cup sugar; taste, and add a little more sugar if desired.

  3. In a bowl, beat butter and remaining 1/3 cup sugar until well blended. Stir in 1/3 cup milk.

  4. In another bowl, mix 1½ cups flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to butter mixture with another 1/3 cup milk and stir to combine. Batter should be stiff and sticky; if too dry, add a little more milk; if runny, add flour. Stir in vanilla.

  5. Drop batter by tablespoonfuls evenly over prepared fruit (some fruit will show through).

  6. Bake in a 350° oven until top is browned and fruit is bubbling, 35 to 40 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature: scoop into bowls and drizzle cream over each serving if desired.
