Oilfield Cafe: Easy Peach Cobbler


When it comes to my Oilfield Cafe posts, I tend to talk about a lot of main dishes or appetizers but never really desert. Which, if you ask me, is the best part of a meal. So when I decided to make a peach cobbler the other day, I thought I’d share it with y’all! Who doesn’t love a really simple peach cobbler? Slap some on a plate right out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and I’m in heaven. I’m also known to be pretty stingy when asked to share cobbler. I can’t help it!

Check out this recipe which is one my oldest sister taught me:


  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 can of peaches (I use the kind with juice but you can use syrup if you prefer)
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • cinnamon to taste

How to make it:

  • Pre-heat oven to 350
  • Place butter in pan and melt in oven
  • Combine milk, flour, sugar and vanilla. Pour over melted butter
  • Pour can of peaches into pan, ensuring peaches are spread out evenly
  • Sprinkle cinnamon over the top. Use your own discretion for amount.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes.

*If you don’t want a fairly strong butter taste, consider cutting the amount used by 1 or 2 tsp. Also, I’m sure the recipe would work fine with fresh peaches, I just have no idea how many you would use.

Easy, huh? Told you! I love making this recipe for family get togethers or church functions. Just make sure you don’t forget the ice cream!
