Grandma’s Peach Cobbler
by Jackie Wells Jamison

Every year we have 2 family reunions. We have the Wells (my dad’s side) and the Painter (my mom’s side). We are all asked to bring a dish: There is not much pressure on my dad’s side. There will be homemade food, but these folks are not above stopping at IGA to pick up a bucket of chicken.

My mom’s side is a different story. They love to cook: you’ll find homemade fried chicken, homemade coleslaw (my Uncle Gale is known for this dish), tables full of salad, and desserts, and all kinds of good stuff. So the pressure is on. What to make?? My Grandma Painter’s peach cobbler sounds like a winner.

So I call mom ... Do you have grandma’s peach cobbler recipe? “Yes” and what about the pan she used to make it in? “Yes!” Wonderful, I will be right out.

Grandma’s Pan.

This is the pan my grandma used to make her cobbler in; my mom inherited it a few years back when my grandma passed away at the age of 97. My brother has the other pan she used. You can’t put a price on grandma’s pans.

My grandparents in 1969.

This dish is quick and easy and taste delicious! Only 5 ingredients!

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

You will need:
1 cup of flour
1 cup of sugar
3 teaspoons of baking powder
1 cup of milk
1 large can of peaches (don’t drain them)

First you mix all the dry ingredients.
Then add your milk.
Now after that is all stirred together, you just pour it into your pan (no need to grease it).
Now just dump your can of peaches right on top of the batter. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
Now just like that the fruit is on the bottom!

This is all that is left from my test batch, so I guess I will be taking a little piece of grandma with me to our family reunion this year!
