To change this recipe to an apple cobbler, just substitute the tinned peaches for sliced apple. This recipe works well, both ways.
This is a very old Southern recipe. Southern women have been making this dish exactly this way for centuries. it is absolutely DEE LISH. We often serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This was the first dish I learned to make 51 years ago at the tender age of 5. Fresh nutmeg is best. If you don't have nutmeg on hand use the same amount of cinnamon. For a spicier style use ground ginger, again fresh grated is best. You can also use frozen defrosted peaches or any type of berries. Thanks for handing along a classic and preserving a great tradition. - 28 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Used a cast iron skillet. Didn't have self-rising flour, but my handy-dandy Betty Crocker Cookbook told me that a substitute for 3/4 cup self-rising flour is 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, 1 tsp baking powder, and 1/8 tsp salt. Used about 8 fresh nectarines instead of canned and sprinkled cinnamon and brown sugar on top. - 06 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Nice quick recipe. The family loved this. I added a pinch of cinnamon and served it with cool whip on top. - 31 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
