There’s nothing that says summer like peach cobbler. This old-fashioned dessert is always popular and is best with fresh peaches. Serve hot from the oven with ice cream.
There are many wonderful versions. Ours is more of a classic southern-style peach 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.”

Preheat oven to 400°F.
Pour butter into a 13x9-inch baking pan. Add peaches. Sprinkle ½ cup of sugar over peaches, dust with nutmeg and cinnamon, and stir together.
In a bowl, combine remaining ½ cup of sugar, flour, baking powder, and milk. Stir until smooth. Pour over peaches. Sprinkle with raw sugar (if using). Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until top is golden. Serve with whipped cream (if using).
