3 c Peaches; Peel and cut up
2 c Sugar
1 c Water
1/2 c Margarine
2/3 c Self-rising flour
1/4 ts Cinnamon

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



This is an easy Peach Cobbler (very big here in the south).

Combine peaches and 1 cup sugar. Refrigerate until the sugar dissolves and the mixture becomes juicy, add 1/2 cup water. Preheat oven to 350. Melt the margarine in a 2-qt. casserole or pan. In a medium sized bowl combine the remaining 1 cup of sugar with the flour and cinnamon. Mix well.

Add the remaining 1/2 cup of water to make a pourable batter. Pour the batter into the baking pan. Spoon the peaches over the batter. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the batter has risen to the top and formed a crisp crust.

Approximately 6 servings. Variation: Substitute 2 cup of crushed Pineapple with juice for peaches; use brown sugar instead of white and substitute ground ginger for the cinnamon.

Very good recipe. Second time I made it I used 1 cup flour plus 1 cup sugar. Also added a little vanilla. Yum

I made this recipe however I used one cup of sugar instead of two and cut the milk by half and made the other half evaporated milk to make the one cup turn out really good delicious

This was very good! I used 3 tablespoons of butter instead of the 1/2 cup margarine. I also cut back on the sugar by about 1/3 of a cup. I think next time I'll cut back by 1/2 of a cup. I might also add a 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder. But overall, it's a definite for making again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I used pam spray instead of butter to make it healthier and I just sprinkled my peaches with surgar, it was delicious!

Using this recipe was my first attempt at making a peach cobbler. Despite this I am definitely sure the ratio to flour and sugar are way off for the dough. Using a 1c. of sugar caused the dough to crystalize as the it began to rise and was way too sweet. I would suggest using equal portions flour and sugar.

My daughter liked it so much that she asked for it as her birthday cake. I did change the recipe to have 1 teaspoon cinnamon and I used butter instead of margarine.
