How to make Easy Peach Cobbler with Canned Peaches

I love how simple this recipe is and how quickly it comes together. In a nutshell, melt a stick of butter, stir a few ingredients together, dump a can of peaches on top and bake. The batter rises to the top and the peaches and other ingredients make an ooey gooey mixture on the bottom. See photos below!

Can I make this with fresh peaches?

No, I don’t recommend it. This recipe is made to work with canned peaches in heavy syrup and doesn’t work well without that syrup.

If you’ve got fresh peaches to use, I highly recommend my Peach Muffins, this Southern Peach Cobbler or my friend Carlee’s Peach Crisp!

How to Store Leftovers

This dessert is truly best right out of the oven. However, if you do have leftovers, cover the pan and refrigerate for up to 5 days. When you’re ready to enjoy, pop it in the microwave to warm it up and top with a scoop of ice cream!

The Recipe

For my bridal shower that my sisters and mom put together for me, one of the requests was for each of the guests to bring a recipe card. As a foodie and someone who loves to look at recipes, looking through the recipe cards was SO fun!

It was my sister Tara who gave this recipe with her gift at my bridal shower. You see, my sister and I were the epitome of sassy/bickering siblings growing up…..actually, I take that back…Tara and Jared were worse, but that’s another story for another time. 😉 Tara and I liked to joke when we were in high school that we couldn’t be much more different (we dressed differently, we played different sports, etc), and we’d laugh when people asked if we were twins.

Sisters and Pranksters!

I think I was the “meaner” one of the two of us….I mean, we both had our days, but I was the more stubborn and short-tempered for sure. For example, one day after school my sister was watching TV in the living room and I was in the kitchen “making us a snack.” As I was deciding what to make, I noticed the little bowl of bacon grease that Mom had drained off earlier that day and it had solidified. I stirred it up a bit and told Tara I had made some vanilla pudding. I really was planning to say “Just kidding!” when she put the spoon in her mouth but it was too late….. still makes me gag just thinking about it! Definitely not my proudest moment…..

Now, I smile when people ask if we are twins (because, look at her!!!)….and we joke that maybe we were meant to be twins, as we often have “twin telepathy!” We got married within months of eachother and became mothers within a few weeks. We dress alike, act alike, talk alike, and can’t wait to see our littles grow up together!

Fast forward to today……

So all in all, I owe Tara an apology for the bacon grease and a thank you for this recipe card (and for being my BFF)! <3
