Peach Cobbler Recipe

A new eagle friend Moenmac1 to be exact sent me her recipe of Peach Cobbler from her neighbour's grandmother in the '70's. Needless to say, it's been around for quite some time and boy it is well worth keeping for another century!


3 cups peeled, sliced peaches
3/4 cup honey
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup milk
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4lb butter


Mix peaches and 1/2 cup honey in bowl. In seperate bowl, mix the remaining ingredients (except butter). Melt the 1/4lb butter in bottom of the 8 x 8 baking dish in warm oven. Add batter to the melted butter in dish. Place the peach and honey mixture on top, spreading evenly. Bake in 350f oven for 1 hour. Goes very well with fresh whipping cream or icecream!

With the abundance of fresh fruit at this time of year, I highly recommend you trying this recipe out as I'm pretty sure you'll be making it for years to come for your own families!



  1. Glad you got the recipe posted, and WOW.......what a neat picture. If that doesn't make people want to try this recipe, I don't know what would? You forgot to mention that the Red Globe peach seems to work best for this cobbler, and I also add 1/4 cup honey to the batter mixture. We're taking our 3 1/2 yr old grandson to the local fair tomorrow, and then leaving again Fri morning for a long Labor Day weekend in the mountains.

    Happy Birthday P... ;) M

  2. WOW! If that picture doesn't make people want to try that recipe I don't know what would? I'd suggest using Red Globe peaches, and also......I add 1/4 cup honey to the batter mixture. We are taking our grandson to the State Fair tomorrow, and then leaving Friday for a long Labor Day weekend up in the mts.

    Happy Birthday sounds like it was very nice. ;) M

  3. Maureen, thanks for the compliment. That cobbler was easy to take of picture of as it was so darn good! I didnt mention the variety of peaches as I'm not sure if Red Globe Peaches are available in BC. I put 3/4 cup honey and said to use 1/2 cup for the peaches and the rest of the ingredients to be mixed together for the batter... You think I should be clearer than that? I guess we'll see!

    Which mountains do you go to? Sounds very nice, post some pic of your area :)


  4. The main picture on my blog is part of the view we have from our cabin in the Mt. Baker Snoqualmie National Forest. Head east on Hwy 2 out of Everette Wa off of I-5 for about 45 miles and you're there. The cagin is on the North Fork of the Skykomish River. Not sure how to post pictures here?
