Easy Homemade Peach Cobbler Recipe

I love fruit. I love desserts.Β BUT,Β I’m not a huge fan of fruit-y desserts. Weird, huh? Fortunately, I’ve gotten better over the years and have started liking fruit-filled goodies, but for the longest time there were only three fruity desserts I would eat:Β Fruit Pizza, Strawberry Shortcake AND Peach Cobbler. In fact, I’ve never really liked other cobblers except for Peach Cobbler, so I wanted to share our family’s favorite Peach Cobbler recipe for a great dessert to try. Now, like I said, I didn’t use to like fruit in my desserts, which means the few I did like must have been really good.

Let me tell you – this recipe is AMAZING!! It is so easy to make and takes just a minute or two to prep (no joke!) In fact, it’s become one of my favorite desserts to serve last minute because we always have the ingredients on hand. Serve it warm in bowl filled with vanilla ice cream (or even just whipped cream)and you are sure to get RAVE reviews every time you make it. πŸ˜‰ I have yet to meet one person who doesn’t like this peach cobbler, so be sure to give it a go and let us know what you think. It’s so bread-y and butter-y it’s hard not to fall in love with this warm and delicious recipe!!

One of the Best Peach Desserts

How to make Peach Cobbler:

This cobbler recipe is so easy, which makes it perfect to throw together for a last minute dessert. Especially because we almost always have these ingredients on hand! All you have to do is:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350Β° and melt the butter in a 9×9 pan in your oven.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, sugar, milk, baking powder, and salt really well.
  3. Take the pan out of the oven once the butter is melted and pour the batter mixture over it. Then, pour the can of peaches (with the juice) over it. Do NOT mix!!
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes and serve warm. We love to serve it with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream!

Peach Cobbler with Fresh Peaches:

I personally like to use canned peaches, because I think they taste just as good, and it saves me SO much time by not having to do any slicing. But if you prefer your peaches to be fresh, it is definitely possible with this recipe! The only change you’ll make to the recipe is substituting the canned peaches with a boiled fresh peach mixture. Take 2 cups of freshly sliced peaches, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice, and bring to a boil over high heat. Pour over batter in the 8×8 pan. Do not mix! The rest of the recipe remains exactly the same.

Oh, man – this is my favorite. And it seriously only takes 5 minutes to throw together!! That is probably why I always like to have the ingredients plus a tub of vanilla ice cream on hand!!

    I am totally the same way. I'm not a fan of fruit in desserts, and rarely care for any type of pie that doesn't involve chocolate. Peach cobbler might be a go, though; I LOVE peaches!


    Thanks so much for posting that great coupon for the children's museum! I had no idea! We'll definitely be doing that before it ends!


    Question: What kind of flour do you use? all purpose? self-rising?Do tell! :o)


      Use All-purpose if you follow the recipe b/c you’ll be adding the baking powder and salt. If you use self rising flour, omit the baking powder and salt because self-rising flour already has that in it.

    Sims Family

    Thanks for the Children's Museum deal! We are totally going this week!


    Looks great, but do you drain the peaches or add the liquid as well?

      Lil' Luna

      I add the liquid too! πŸ˜€


      Yes that what I do and it also says to do that In the instructions.


    I have seen that Divine Comedy video before and I totally LOL every time! Yup, it's the same at BYU-I, too.

    Meggan of Lila Grace

    I love peach cobbler! It is one of my favorite summer recipes. I am definitely going to try this! xo MegganPS – I am having an Anthropologie giveaway this week that I think you would like!


    Woohoo, thanks for the museum passes and I have that same peach cobbler recipe – so good!!!!

    Lady Behind The Curtain

    YUM! This looks dangerous! Cast Party Wednesday starts tonight at 12:00 midnight. I would love it if you came over tomorrow and shared some recipes with us.Thanks,I hope to see you there!


    Just to let you know, I called the museum before heading over there, and this coupon was only intended for families already enrolled in the program, and the coupon went viral. I am so bummed!

    Lady Behind The Curtain

    Thanks for sharing at Cast Party Wednesday. I hope you will join me again next week for another great party filled with amazing recipes!

    Robyn Rasmussen

    Yes! Thank you! I have a huge bag of fresh peaches on my counter just waiting to be used and this recipe looks like a perfect solution! -Robyn from


    This looks a lot like the recipe I have from my aunt and it is the BEST ever! It’s so hard to resist a nice soft, warm peach cobbler like this. πŸ™‚

      Lil' Luna

      You’re telling me!! It’s just so darn good and too easy to make. πŸ™‚


    How many servings does this typically make?


    I am going to try this, but want to try it with the crockpot(due to heating up the house). Any suggestions? I’ll let you know what happens!

      Lil' Luna

      Hmmmm, never tried the crock pot. Let me know how it goes and I can add some notes to the recipe for those who want to try it as well. πŸ™‚


    This has {almost} been my family’s peach cobbler recipe for as long as I can remember – 30+ years. We are from Peach County in GA and we know our peach cobbler πŸ˜‰ You can use 1 cup of self-rising flour in place of the plain flour, baking powder, and salt. Also, add 1/2 t. of pure almond extract to the batter. That is the ingredient that takes this to the next level. πŸ™‚


    I don’t see the recipe how do i get it ??


    Hi. Thought I would make this during our Christmas festivities. Just curious if you use can peaches with heavy syrup or juice.

      Lil' Luna

      Hi Allison. I always used the canned peaches with juice… and it turns out awesome!! πŸ˜€


        For those that have diabetic husbands who love their sweets, I’ve tweaked the recipe. Canned peaches in juice, drained the juice and added Β½ c. Splenda blend to the juice. Place the peaches on the batter then pour the juice over gently. Same with the batter, cut the sugar to Β½ c. Splenda blend. Works like a charm!


    If you use self-rising flour you don’t need the baking powder, and I use a half a stick of butter when I make it. You can also make it with pretty much any combination of fruit or berries – fresh, frozen, or canned – and you can play with extracts and spices. I like a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg with peaches, almond extract with raspberries, lemon or cinnamon with blueberries, vanilla with strawberries.


    I am thinking of making this but I was wondering if you have ever replaced the flour with Bisquick?

      Lil' Luna

      I have never tried it with Bisquick but will have to next time and let you know. If you decide to try it before me I’d love to know how it turns out. πŸ˜‰


        It was so yummy with Bisquick – I think I will add a little cinnamon next time! Thanks for the recipe!

          Lil' Luna

          Glad it worked out!! And cinnamon would definitely be a great addition. πŸ™‚


        I did add a little extra Bisquick to it though.

    Rachel Page

    This was my first time making cobbler and it turned out great!

      Lil' Luna

      I’m SO glad!! It’s definitely my favorite cobbler recipe because it is so yummy and is SO easy. πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by!


    I actually forgot the milk and it was still delicious. I cooked it for 40 minutes


    I melted the 1/2 cup of butter in oven and followed directions. The butter looks like alot. After I baked it, in the end it looks like soup. Is it supposed to be like that?

      Lil' Luna

      It does look soupy, once everything is poured in, but in the end, after it bakes, it will be just fine. Did it turn out ok? I hope so!!


    If i use fresh peaches do i need to add any juice to make up for what’s in the canned peaches?

      Lil' Luna

      You probably would need to. I personally haven’t tried using fresh peaches. I’m not sure what would be the best juice to add? A peach juice or just water??

      SusanAnn Sheidy

      No need to add juice. If your peaches are fresh and juicy no need to add juice.


    You should use two cans of peaches in this recipe, instead of just one. I used one 15 oz can and the result was, too much dough and not enough peaches.

      Lil' Luna

      You for sure could. I like how the one can tastes, but it’s totally up to how you like it πŸ™‚


    What kind of flour is used? Self rising or all purpose?


    This was just luscious! And so easy to make. I did cut up my peach slices to ensure a good distribution of peaches throughout the pan.
    It was superb with both vanilla bean ice cream and real whipped cream. I tested both in the name of science. You are welcome.
    This will make a great last-minute dessert for company!

      Kristyn Merkley

      So, happy you liked it!! It is great for company! Thank you so much for letting me know!


    Is the cobbler supposed to be gooey on the inside? I’ve made it twice so far thinking i didn’t follow through correctly with the first one, but once i did the the other one it turned out the same (followed with exact the instructions).

      Kristyn Merkley

      Yes, I guess you could say so. Besides, the crust, it is a little gooey. I hope you still liked it!


    WOW!!! This Peach Cobbler is simply DELICIOUS. My husband LOVED it and asked when would I make it again.
    Thank you so much for making dessert so easy.

      Kristyn Merkley

      That’s a good sign πŸ™‚ I’m so glad! Thank you so much for letting me know!


    My Grandma made great cobblers, so early on I was hooked. But then again everything she cooked was delicious. I would and y her side in the kitchen watch in awe! She did sprinkle a light poor of nutmeg or cinnamon on top of peaches.
    I am amazed you even have time to cook with 6 kids. I raised 4 it does force ya to be somewhat organized!😎

      Kristyn Merkley

      I loved everything my grandma made, too! Well, that’s why I love quick & easy recipes πŸ™‚ It can be hard! But, yes, it forces you to be organized πŸ™‚

    Hello Lil luna, this pastime year my wife of 36 years , fell sick to manners disease . So cooking meals and desserts has been left to my prowess in the kitchen. May I say scrambled eggs was my claim to fame. I have been teaching myself coozing with the help of sites as yours. I look forward to preparing wonderfully dishes for my wife with the help of your wonderfully recipes. Love your easy recipes. Thank you for helping a lost in the kitchen guy..

      Kristyn Merkley

      Awe, you are so nice! I am sorry about your wife. You are awesome for taking great care of her. I am here to help πŸ™‚ I am glad you stop by & find some recipes to try!


    I’ve always used self-rising flour in the recipe….never fails. Just leave the salt and baking powder out. Delicious

    Brenda Reynolds

    I am definitely trying this?

    SusanAnn Sheidy

    I’ve been making this cobbler for over 50 years of my marriage. My mother make it before me. I would never, ever use can peaches! Only fresh peaches go into my cobblers. Some think there is no difference. Trust me, close your eyes when you taste your first spoonful you will never go can peaches again. Other wise you will love, love, love this recipe. WARNING: Under no circumstances add cinnamon. For some reason people always want to add this fabulous spice to Peach Cobbler. Don’t spoil the recipe leave the cinnamon in the spice cabinet this time.

      Kristyn Merkley

      Fresh is definitely best, but when in a pinch, I use canned. Thanks for the 5 stars & comment πŸ™‚


    This is amazing! One of the best cobblers I’ve ever had.


    It’s a good base of a recipe but it has way too much sugar. I only used half a cup. I also added a bit of orange extract and some basil for some more flavour.


    I gave this a try, made a few changes. Added a bit of vanilla, and a touch of cinnamon. It was delicious and a hit with the family. Next time will try to reduce the sugar, might have been a little too sweet. Wondered how if it’d work with canned pie filling like apple or blueberry. Would probably need more liquid, have to give that a little more thought.

      Kristyn Merkley

      Thanks for sharing what you did. I have not tried it with other fillings, but I bet that would be good.

    Marianne Krager

    Hello – can U use frozen peaches

      Kristyn Merkley

      I haven’t tried frozen, just canned or fresh, but you should be able to. I would let them thaw out first.

    Jennifer Bains

    Hi di you cover the peach cobbler before you put it in the oven?

    Jack Smith

    Wow! So pretty and no doubt fabulously delicious πŸ™‚ Can’t wait for peach season!

    Esther Martinez

    I would really like to make some of your good food

    Ruth Ann Jackson

    If I double this recipe do I use the juice of both cans of peaches?

      Kristyn Merkley

      Yes & use a 9×13 πŸ™‚ Enjoy!!


      How long did you bake the doubled recipe?

        Kristyn Merkley

        Usually, in a larger pan, the cooking time is shorter, but since it is doubled, it may be close to the same. I would just time it for 30 min then add a minute at a time from there, if it needs it. If your oven gets super hot, like mine, you could even check it at like 25 minutes.

    Kara Heath

    I found your recipe for this homemade peach cobbler and I’m so excited to try it! I Am cooking it as I sit here. 16 minutes left!!

      Kristyn Merkley

      That makes me so happy to hear!! I am glad you found it, too! Thank you for letting me know & I hope you like it!

    Marylynn Hablitzel

    This is a good recipe. But I have to disagree with you that canned peaches taste just as good as fresh. Usually when I look up a recipe like this I am doing it because I have fresh fruit off of my trees I need to use it up before it spoils. So of course I’m going to use fresh peaches. Peeling may be a pain but it makes could use the peaches in the fresh ones taste a lot better!

      Kristyn Merkley

      Fresh peaches of course taste delicious!! And, if I had some, I am sure I would use them too πŸ™‚


    Love your cobbler! Thanks!
    I cook all of the time, great simple recipe!


    This recipe is great! Just made it and my family l❀ved it! Thank you!

      Kristyn Merkley

      You are so sweet!! Thank you so much for your encouragement! I am so glad you like the recipes you try πŸ™‚ Thanks again!


    Few questions to confirm. Do I peel the peaches? Does it matter if the peaches are hot? Does it come out more wet or crispy? And is your time based on a metal pan or glass dish?

      Kristyn Merkley

      I like to use canned peaches for convenience, but if you are using fresh, yes, I would peel them. No, they don’t need to be hot πŸ™‚ I use glass pans & it comes out more wet, than crispy. It’s perfect!
