Peach Cobbler, Canned Peaches Version

Canned peaches is one of the long-lasting food items that I've bought when the COVID-19 outbreak just started. Luckily, where I'm at right now, Taiwan, seems to be safer than most of the places. Looking at what's happening around the world, who would have thought that many other safe and peaceful places as we know before can be as chaotic, filled with anger and riots? Hope and pray that this pandemic can get in control and everybody's life get back on track soon.

Thankfully Taiwan has been doing well, and that means the extra food I've bought for the virus outbreak can now be devoured. I seriously need more shelf space back, which I have been trying to finish all the excess frozen food and canned goods whenever I can. So here it is, peach cobbler using canned peaches.

Peach cobbler using canned peaches -


  • 400 grams/about 4 to 5 canned peaches halves
  • 2 tablespoons juice from canned peaches
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 stick/113 grams unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Tiny pinch salt
  • Some vanilla ice cream (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit/176.5 degrees Celsius. Slice the peaches into large chunks.

Place butter directly to the baking dish.

Transfer the baking dish to the oven. Wait till the butter melts and just about bubbling, remove from heat.

Take a big bowl, sift in flour and baking powder, also add in granulated sugar and salt, mix till combined.

Pour the mixture to the baking dish, right over melted butter. Pour in prepped peaches along with some of its juice. No need to stir, just pour the peaches right on top. 

Into the oven and bake for about 35 to 40 minutes.

Remove from heat. The cobbler should look slightly unset, more like a semi-hardened gooey texture.

Serve with vanilla ice cream for that extra hot and cold sensation.

So why I chose canned peaches as my food storage choice in the first place? It's because what I've seen from a Japanese TV show. It was teaching viewers how to prepare for disasters, and one of the pros was showing canned fruits, saying that having something sweet and juicy when hard time hits can truly be a mood booster. Not necessary the most nutritious option, but canned fruits can bring much joy and happiness. If there're kids in the family, canned fruits can also be a great helper too, something sweet to bring that smile back on their face.

Well, let's hope we'll never need to open any canned fruits for that purpose. Instead, simply enjoy canned sweet treats because we feel like it.
