For an easy peach cobbler, gather two 15-ounce cans of peaches in syrup, 1/2 cup butter, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk. The final mixture is placed in a baking dish, preferably 9-by-12, and baked in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for one hour.
If for some reason you cannot procure self-rising flour, substitute 1 cup of all purpose flour, along with 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Open the two cans of peaches, draining the syrup from one and reserving it from the other. Set it aside in a small bowl. In a larger bowl, mix the sugar and flour, followed by the milk and reserved syrup from the second can of peaches. Mix the batter thoroughly with a spoon and reserve.
Place the baking dish on the stove and add butter, melting the butter over low to medium heat. Take the large bowl of batter, and pour it evenly over the butter inside the baking dish. Next, take the peaches you have reserved in the small bowl and arrange them over the batter. If the cobbler does not appear done after an hour, as oven performance varies, continue cooking until the batter has risen around the peaches and the crust is colored golden brown. Present finished peach cobbler with whipped cream on the top or side. This recipe yields approximately eight servings.
