  • Pie pan
  • Mixing bowl


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 29 ounces peaches in juice
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place butter in 9-in square baking dish and place in oven to melt.
  • Meanwhile, combine flour, sugar, and buttermilk and mix well. Set aside.
  • Combine peaches, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla.
  • Remove melted butter from oven and spoon flour mixture into pan. Spoon peaches on top of flour mixture. (Discard excess peach juice.)
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown on top.
  • Allow to cool for approximately 30 minutes before serving.



If you don't have self-rising flour, you can make your own substitution at home. 
In a small bowl, place 1 cup of all-purpose flour.  Remove 1 ½ teaspoons of flour  - you can put that back in the flour container.  Add 1 ½ teaspoons of baking flour and ¼ teaspoon of salt.  Whisk the three ingredients together and use in place of self-rising flour.

Fresh peaches in season?  You can use those, too.  First, place 2 cups of peeled and sliced peaches, 1 cup sugar (more for sweeter fruit), and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until boiling. Remove from the heat and use in place of the canned peaches.

If you don't have buttermilk, you can make "sour milk" and use it instead.  Place 1 tablespoon of vinegar in a one-cup measuring cup.  Fill the remainder of the cup with milk.  Allow it to sit for 5 - 10 minutes.

Peach cobbler is also delicious served with whipped cream.
