Upside-Down Peach Cobbler

Serves 6.


  • ¼ cup soft butter or margarine
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup unsifted regular all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 can (1 lb) canned peaches, cut in small pieces.  Drain and reserve the liquid.
  • 2/3 to 1 cup liquid from the canned fruit
  • Sugar to taste
  • Whipped cream (optional)

Baking Instructions/Notes:

  1. Cream butter and sugar until smooth and well blended.  Mix the flour with the baking powder and salt.  Add flour mixture a little at a time alternately with the milk, beating just until the thick batter is smooth.
  2. Spread the batter evenly in a greased 9-inch- square baking pan. The batter will rise to the top while baking.
  3. Pour the fruit and liquid over the batter. Sprinkle with sugar – about 1 tablespoon, or more if desired.
  4. Bake in a 350 oven about 1 hour, or until the crust is golden brown. Serve warm with plain cream or whipped cream.

Fresh fruit can be used. Just poach it in water with a bit of sugar to create the liquid needed for the recipe.  You can use other kinds of fruit; pears, berries, apples, whatever suits your fancy.
