Iva's Peach Cobbler Recipe

Iva's Peach Cobbler Recipe

My mother received this recipe from a friend of hers many years ago, and fortunately she shared it with me. Boise is situated right between two large fruit-producing areas in our state, so peaches are plentiful in the summer. —Ruby Ewart, Boise, Idaho
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 6 to 8 large ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 to 1 cup sugar
  • CRUST:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 egg whites, stiffly beaten


  • 1. Combine peaches, cornstarch and sugar; place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. For crust, combine flour, egg yolks, butter, baking powder and sugar in a bowl. Gently fold egg whites. Spread over peaches. Bake at 375° for about 45 minutes or until the fruit is bubbling around edges and top is golden. Yield: 12 servings.

"Didn't care for the texture of the crust, too crunchy. I prefer my crust more cake like. It was way to sweet. I used 1 cup sugar on peaches and 1 cup sugar in crust. It didn't have a lot of flavor, so next time I would add cinnamon & vanilla extract to kick it up a notch, maybe some nutmeg. The peaches had a great taste, just needed more of them. I used (1) 16 oz. frozen bag of peaches."

"Didn't like crust at all, although I thought it sounded good. Needed much more fruit. Not even one star for me."

"I made this yesterday with mangos and it was very good. I added just a bit more cornstarch because mangos tend to be more juicy but otherwise I followed the recipe as written."

"This recipe was heavenly, The only thing I did different was using two cans of Betty Crocker peach pie filling. My husband said it was the best dessert i ever made. It was gone by the second day. Will be making it again this week. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe."

"The crust was almost like a crunchy meringue because of use of the stiffly beaten egg whites (which are extra time-consuming to whip). There wasn't enough crust mixture to cover the peaches well. The crust was also too sweet for my taste. I will not be making this again."

"I made this with 4 fresh peaches and added sime blueberries and a few raspberries. I sprinkled a bit of cinnamon for more flavor and used 1/2 cup of brown sugar on the fruit. Made the topping as directed. The batter was quite dry... But baked up nice and tasted good. I used a 9 x 9 pan as I had less fruit than called for. It baked in 45 min. Next time I will try to cut back even a bit more on the sugar."

"Too much sugar!

I cut the amount of sugar called for by over half a cup, and I still found the cobbler to be too sweet. It also needs cinnamon!"

"I made this yesterday and it was great. The peaches were not fully ripe so I upped the corn starch to 3T and added two tablespoons of peach schnapps to the filling. I baked for the recommended 45 minutes and the fruit was tender and the filling was very flavorful. This recipe is a keeper."

"This is a really good cobbler because the crust is just perfect. I like a lot of peaches so I added a few extra.

After mixing, the crust is an odd crumbly mixture and there is not enough of it to cover the the oven some magic occurs and it spreads out and covers the whole thing. Only thing I will do different next time is add some cinnamon.
I would give it 6 stars if I could."
