Peach Cobbler

This recipe for peach and berry cobbler was devised a while ago and everyone seems to like it – it’s fluffy, slightly eggy with a nice firm crust.peach_cobbler


Peach Cobbler


  • 6 Peaches Fresh or just use canned peach halves
  • .5 Cups Berries Roughly Chopped
  • 100 gm Butter Softened
  • .5 Cups Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • .66 Cups Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 2 tsp Sugar


  • Wash the peaches to remove the excess fluff.
  • Put lots of ice in a large bowl and fill with water
  • In a large pot, boil a pot of water. Put the whole peaches in the boiling water for 1 minute Take the peaches out and plunge them into the iced water. This will stop them from cooking further
  • With a small knife, peel the peaches and roughly chop the peaches into chunks
  • Put the peaches and the berries into a baking dish (approx 20 x 30 cm)

Prepare Cobbler

  • Heat an oven to 180°C
  • In a mixing bowl cream the butter and first measure of sugar together until light and fluffy
  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition
  • Sift the flour and baking powder into the mixture and stir well to combine
  • Sprinkle the berries (I used strawberries) over the peaches
  • Spoon the cobbler mixture over the fruit and mix roughly to combine. I like to do this very roughly so that there are pockets of fruit
  • Sprinkle the top with the second measure of sugar
  • Bake for 50 mins or until cooked and golden brown in the middle.
  • Serve immediately with lots of ice cream.
