    1 hr 10 mins

    1 hr 20 mins


  1. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Put the butter in an 8x8 inch baking dish and place in the oven to melt while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
  2. Bring the peaches with syrup and 2 tablespoons of sugar to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 10 minutes; set aside. Whisk together the flour, 1 cup sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl. Stir in the milk until the mixture is just moistened. Pour into the hot baking dish over the butter. Spoon the peach slices and most of the syrup over the batter.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Return to the oven and bake until the top is golden brown, 30 to 45 minutes longer.

My family LOVED it! I didn't have self rising flour so used regular flour and a teas. of baking powder. I didn't put in nutmeg. I added vanilla. I was worried about it being too sweet, but it was perfect. I served it w/ vanilla bean ice cream. WONDERFUL!

We tried this for 30 people and not sure why, but it didn't work at all. Was very dissapointed. Could be how the numbers changed in the conversion!?

I made this for my family, and made no changes to the recipe. It was a winner! We loved the crusty top. Serve warm with fresh whipping cream or vanilla ice cream. Yum!

Way too sweet. I made this using 1/2 cup sugar in the batter, 1 tablespoon in the peaches and 1 tablespoon sprinkled on top. It had the perfect sweetness and I could actually taste the peaches.

This was great! I ended up using 2 15 oz cans of peaches. And I was worried that it wouldnt all fit into the 8x8 pan. But it fit perfect and turned out yummy. I would also next time sprinkle brown sugar on top instead of white sugar.

This was really delicious! I took the advice of another poster and reduced the amount of sugar, and since I only had 29 oz. cans of peaches and a 9x9 pan instead of 8x8 I ended up using most of the peaches from the larger can in order to have enough fruit in the cobbler. Not sure how it would be fruity enough with only a 15 oz can!!! I also sprinkled brown sugar on top instead of white sugar because I thought it would look prettier that way - So yummy!

I have tried this recipe three times and each time my family loved it. The only changes that I made was, instead of putting two tablespoons of sugar on top, I only put one and I sprinkled a little cinnamon on top also. This recipe is a keeper and I will continue to make it in the future.

Very good, my husband loved it ! A little sweet for me so I cut out the sugar sprinkled on top half way thru baking. Also I did not have self rising flour so this one time I used Bisquik. The recipe went into my "keeper" file.
