Is there a difference between Self-Rising Flour and All Purpose Flour?
Yes! Self-Rising Flour already has a leavening agent, such as baking powder, added in. It works great with this Easy Recipe because it takes one measurement out of the equation for you. For those of us that are new to baking, that’s an awesome thing!
Self Rising Flour is a MUST in this recipe or it will not bake up correctly. See below for substitutions.

If you don’t have Self-Rising Flour, rest assured you can still make this Peach Cobbler. WHEW! Just add in 1 teaspoon baking powder per 1 cup flour. Easy peasy, right?

- 1/2 cup 1 stick salted butter
- 2 23 ounce cans or jars sliced peaches in syrup
- 1 cup SELF RISING flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 cup whole or 2% milk
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Fresh Whipped Cream Vanilla Ice Cream, or Cool Whip for garnish
- Preheat oven to 350F
- Place butter in a 9x12 baking dish and allow to melt for a few minutes in the oven as it heats. Once melted, remove from oven and set aside.
Meanwhile, drain both jars of peaches, reserving 1/4 cup of the peach syrup. Set syrup and peaches aside separately.
In a large bowl, stir together the flour and sugar. Once mixed, whisk in the milk, vanilla, and 1/4 cup syrup from the peaches. Once totally smooth, pour into the baking dish over the melted butter. *SEE NOTE
- Spoon peaches over the batter.
Bake for 1 hour or until the batter is golden brown and baked up around the peaches. (depending on the oven it could take up to 1 hour 20 minutes)
- Allow to cool slightly and serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
NOTE: The batter will be very thin. That's okay! It will bake up around the peaches and create a bubbly, caramelized cobbler!
NOTE: You must use self-rising flour in this recipe. I've discussed substitutions in the post above. The batter won't bake up otherwise.
NOTE: This version of Peach Cobbler might be a bit less firm than some you're used to. This is an EASY Peach Cobbler and is delicious served warm topped with vanilla ice cream.
