Junior League Prize Peach Cobbler

Southern League Cookbooks are great finds. Many folks collect them and it is rare to see one at a library sale, for example. I picked this one up at an antiques mall. It’s a collection of several southern Junior League Cookbooks. The prize Peach Cobbler is from the Gasparilla Cookbook, JL of Tampa, FL:

3/4 cup flour

Less than 1/8 tsp. salt

2 tsp. baking powder

1 cup sugar

3/4 cup milk

1/2 cup butter or margarine

2 cups fresh sliced peaches

1 cup sugar

Sift flour, salt and baking powder.  Mix with 1 cup sugar; slowly stir in milk to make batter. Melt butter in 8x8x2-inch baking pan.  Pour batter over melted butter.  Do not stir. Mix the peaches and 1 cup sugar thoroughly and carefully spoon them over the batter.  Bake 1 hour at 350F. Serve hot or cold, with cream if desired.

    I first started making this recipe in 1973, from my mother-in-law’s recipe–then found it in a Southern Junior League cookbook, so it’s been around a long time. Summer can’t go by without making it–also good with blueberries, blackberries, just about any summer fruit. I’d lost my cookbook, so glad to find it here.

    what if we are substituting the peaches for sweet cherries. Are we supposed to add lemon zest? and are we also supposed to used almond extract instead of vanilla?

    Hi Erica! I like your substitution ideas, and think you could add a little lemon zest or extract the sweet cherries. I have done this recipe several times as is, but your ideas could definitely enhance it. Let me know how it goes!

  5. I use to own this cookbook, somehow it has managed to find it’s way out of the house
    I thankfully had put this wonderful recipe on the computer.
    It is the best.
