Easy Homemade Peach Cobbler Recipe

I haven’t always loved fruity desserts (I’m more of a chocolate girl), but have fallen in love with them. From Fruit Pizza to  Strawberry Shortcake to Cobbler – they have become favorites, and I can’t get enough of them.

Today, we wanted to share with you our favorite homemade peach cobbler recipe that takes just a few minutes to prep and is beyond simple!

Let me tell you – this recipe is AMAZING!! In fact, it’s become one of my favorite desserts to serve last minute because we always have the ingredients on hand, and it’s easy to double for a larger crowd.

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. 😉 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!!

How to Make Peach Cobbler - uncooked cobbler in a baking dish

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!

Melt Butter. Preheat your oven to 350° and melt the butter in a 9×9 pan in your oven.

Mix Batter. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, sugar, milk, baking powder, and salt really well. Take the pan out of the oven once the butter is melted and pour the batter mixture over it.

Add Peaches. Pour the can of peaches (with the juice) over it. Do NOT mix!!

Bake. Bake for 30-35 minutes and serve warm.

Serve. We love to serve it with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream! It seriously is the best and easiest cobbler that is so bread-y and gooey!

prefer to use 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.

Storing, freezing, and reheating

How to store leftover peach cobbler?

  • Room temperature: Cover and store for up to 2 days
  • Refrigerator: Cover and store for up to 4 days
  • Freezer: Cover with plastic wrap then again with foil and store for up to 8 months.

Freezing. Our peach cobbler can be frozen.  After baking let the cobbler cool and cover with plastic wrap then again with aluminum foil. Label the contents and include the current date. Freeze for to 6-8 months. To reheat thaw overnight in the fridge. Remove plastic wrap replace foil and bake in a preheated oven to 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes.

Reheating. We love having peach cobbler warm. To reheat the cobbler, use the microwave and reheat in 30 second increments. If you want to reheat in the stove, just bake at 350 for 10 minutes if at room temperature, and about 20 minutes if the cobbler is chilled.

    Followed recipe exactly except for adding a handful of fresh blueberries when adding the canned peaches and the juices. The “cube of butter” in the video appears like one entire bar which seemed way too much and it was. The final product was a gooey mess and far too much butter. Too much liquid for the amount of dry ingredients. The butter should likely be 2-3 teaspoonfuls at most. Bland tasting as well.

  2. 5 stars
    This is a great recipe! I added a teaspoon of vanilla to the batter and it turned out wonderful! There is not too much liquid at all once you let it cool for a little bit. Turned out great and hubby is going back for seconds as we speak!

  3. 5 stars
    This was fabulous! I am a peach cobbler and crisp maven and this recipe technique was so simple, different and delicious! It also invites additions like vanilla or almond flavoring, a different type of flour (I used while whole wheat, but may use all whole wheat next time) and crunchy additions like sprinkling sugar on top, slivered almonds or oatmeal … endless possibilities! I used fresh peaches right off our tree and simple sliced them into the dish, covering the top and the finished product was moist and did not need any more liquid. Yum!

    1. Thanks so much for your feedback! I’m so happy to hear that you enjoyed cobbler. Love all the ideas for mixing it up and adding to it if desired. So fun!

    1. I imagine you can! You may need to alter the size of the pan to accommodate for the extra peaches. I haven’t doubled the peaches only before, so you’ll have to tell us how it turns out.

    1. Depending on if you are on a phone/tablet or a computer, the video should just pop up for you. If not, you can scroll down through the post and you should be able to find it in there.

  4. i made the cobbler and it was ok but it was so dry. I cooked it until it was browned and we ate it but I was disappointed that it was so dry. What can I do to it to make it moist?

    1. Perhaps it was in the oven a bit too long? Maybe try pulling it out just a tad sooner. Sorry to hear your cobbler turned out dry.

  5. 5 stars
    Easy to make and tasty to eat – my favourite combination! I followed the recipe as closely as possible, adjusting for an 8×8 pan (I’ve never seen a 9×9 in Canada) and also adjusting for the size of canned peaches. It turned out perfectly and the leftovers were delicious as well. Thank you!

    1. I imagine it would change the recipe a bit? I haven’t tried adding an egg to this specific cobbler. If you do, you’ll have to let us know how it turns out.
