There’s nothing that says summer like our fresh peach cobbler. Our recipe is a classic Southern-style cobbler—moist, tender, and juicy (more peaches than cake). 

It’s very similar to recipes found in 19th-century cookbooks which went by the name of “bird’s-nest pudding” or “crow’s-nest pudding.”

With a handful of ingredients (and fresh peaches!), you can serve that traditional cobbler grandma used to make. Serve hot from the oven with ice cream or homemade whipped cream.

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) salted butter, melted
4 cups peeled and sliced fresh peaches
1 cup sugar, divided
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons baking powder
whipped cream (optional)

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Pour butter into a 13x9-inch baking dish. 

In a bowl, stir together peaches, 1/2 cup of sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Pour into baking dish.

In a separate bowl, combine remaining 1/2 cup of sugar, flour, milk, and baking powder. Stir until smooth. Pour over peaches. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the top is golden.

Serve with whipped cream or some Old Fashioned Homemade Ice Cream for a special treat.
