Arkansas Peaches In Season: It’s Time for Fresh Peach Cobbler

A visit to the Hot Springs Farmers Market revealed a great surprise:  newly picked Arkansas peaches!  It’s the first crop of the season, and a week early.  Today’s guests at Lookout Point enjoyed an appetizer of fresh Arkansas peaches, blueberries, topped with a splash of cream and mint sprig.  Oh, the peaches are so sweet, with a heavenly fragrance.  Not it’s time to make peach cobbler. 

The farmer from whom I bought the peaches joyfully provided his best recipe for Fresh Peach Cobbler.  I made a batch, and it’s so easy and yummy.  Enjoy!


3/4 stick butter
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup all purpose unbleached flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
dash of salt
3/4 cup milk
2 cups peaches, peeled and sliced


Melt butter in a 2 quart deep baking or casserole dish.
In a small bowl combine sugar, flour, baking powder, satl, and milk.  Whisk until well mixed.  Pour this batter over the melted butter.  Do not stir.

Combine peaches with another 1/2 cup sugar (or less, if peaches are sweet). Spoon peaches over batter.  Do not stir.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Serves 8.  Or one, if it’s the first fresh peach cobbler of the season.  🙂
