Instant Peach Cobbler (Dump Cobbler)

Thanks to all of the rain and the warm weather, we finally have peaches.  Every year the deer beat us to them, or the birds, or the raccoons, but not this year!

I have been out daily to check them. I walked around the tree giving them a little squeeze just to see if there was any softness. One day I finally felt that slight indentation against the fuzzy skin.  Yep…peach cobbler here I come.

Oh, and the beautiful peach tree you see above was grown from a peach purchased at the grocery store.  The next time you purchase fruit, think about planting the seeds and see what happens.


I picked some of the peaches, placed them in hot water to loosen the skin, peeled them, and cut them into chucks. I managed to get a   few in the freezer, a lot of them into my mouth, and the rest went into a peach cobbler.

I love this recipe.  It’s quick, easy,and requires very little effort.  It’s the same recipe I used for my STRAWBERRY COBBLER.

Quick and Easy Cobbler

This recipe makes a 9 x 13 dish.   I must confess that I never measure my fresh fruit.  There is no right or wrong amount of fruit to use in the cobbler.  I use 4-6 cups but if you only have 2 cups of fruit make, try making half a batch. This cobbler is just too good not to try.  


  • 1 stick of butter
  • ¾ cup of milk
  • 1 cup of sugar plus 1/2 cup for topping
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • dash salt
  • 1 large (21oz) can of fruit or pie filling
    or use fresh fruit, sweetened to taste


  • Melt butter in the bottom of your baking dish (I just stick mine in the oven while it is preheating).
  • In a separate dish mix milk, flour, 1 cup of the sugar, vanilla, and baking powder and pour batter over the melted butter. DO NOT STIR.
  • Pour fruit over batter. (I use a teaspoon and dollop the fruit around the batter) DO NOT STIR.
  • Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup of sugar over the top of the fruit/batter mixture.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour.   (check after 45 minutes !)
