This recipe comes with a little story.  I always thought this was an Old Order Mennonite or Amish recipe.  I was giving it to Marilyn to put on Amish Stories.  As I was going through the ingredients, all of a sudden Marilyn said wait a minute.  That sounds like my Mom's Peach Cobbler Recipe.  Marilyn got the recipe and read it to me and they were almost completely alike.  So we give both our Mother's credit for this recipe.

You can use other fruits in this recipe besides peaches - just adjust the amount of sugar.


1/2 stick butter or margarine
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups sliced peaches (skin removed)

Melt butter in an 8 inch by 8 inch by 2 inch baking dish.  Put sliced peaches in dish.  Combine other ingredients - pour over sliced peaches.  Bake at 325 degrees for one hour.

If you use canned peaches, I use one # 2 1/2 can and reduce sugar to 3/4 cup.

You can also bake this in a loaf pan.

I love peaches! Can't get enough of them this time of year! I can't seem to pass them by at the Farmer's Market without picking up a bag. This sounds yummy! I'll have to give it a try!

Thank you, ladies! ! !

Hi Willow's Quiet Corner,

I just bought some peaches at the Farmer's Market today. I love peaches, too !! I think it is yummy ! I have made it for many years. One recipe my Mom taught me when I was a little girl.

Peaches and strawberries are my favorite. I have company coming next week and this is definitely on my list to make for them.
