EASY homemade Peach Cobbler takes minutes to prep and buttery and delicious. This is our FAVORITE peach dessert!
Cobbler is one of those desserts that is delicious year round! I crave the fruit during the summer, but the warm gooeyness during cold months. Peach is the flavor we make the most, but our blackberry and apple cobblers are just as tasty!
Easy Peach Cobbler!
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.
Cobbler or Crumble: They are similar but the key difference is that cobblers have biscuit topping and a crumble has a streusel topping. Crisps are crumbles that have oats in the streusel.
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!
PREP. Preheat your oven to 350° and melt the butter in a 9×9 pan in your oven.
CAKE. 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.
PEACHES. Spoon the peaches (with the juice) over it. Do NOT mix!!
BAKE + SERVE. Bake for 30-35 minutes and serve warm.
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 for peach cobbler?
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.
PEACHES. Take 2 cups of freshly sliced peaches (about 4-5 peaches, peeled, cored and sliced), ¾ cup of sugar, and dash of salt, and bring to a boil over high heat. Pour over batter in the 9×9 pan. Do not mix!
The rest of the recipe remains exactly the same.

Tips and Troubleshooting
- Use the whole can: This recipe calls for using the entire can of peaches. If you drain it, then the cobbler may turn out too dry.
- Is it done? The biscuit topping will rise to the top and become a nice golden brown. The peach filling at the bottom will be bubbly. Keep in mind that we baked our cobbler in a glass baking dish. If you use a metal pan, then it may bake more quickly.
- Switch the Spice: Replace the cinnamon with a similar favorite spice such as 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg, or allspice or a pumpkin pie spice.
- Add Berries:Add some blueberries, strawberries, raspberries or blackberries, but toss them in some cornstarch first.
- Add Cornstarch: If you’re worried about mushy and runny cobbler, mix some cornstarch into the peaches. In a small bowl add 1 teaspoon cold water and 1 teaspoon cornstarch. Once it has been mixed, stir it into the peaches. As the cobbler bakes the hot liquid will activate the cornstarch.
Storing tips + FAQ
Room temperature: Cover and store for up to 2 days
Refrigerator: Cover and store for up to 4 days
How to freeze? Cover with plastic wrap then again with foil and store for up to 8 months. 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.
How to reheat? 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.
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!! For another delicious cobbler, try our Blackberry Cobbler!
