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.

    1. I haven’t tried doubling the peaches before but if you try it I would either reserve some of the liquid from the second can of peaches out so it doesn’t overflow while baking or I would use both cans of peaches in a 9 x 13 pan to prevent spillover. I’d love to hear how it goes! Keep me posted!

    2. I haven’t tried doubling the peaches before but I would suggest reserving some of the juice from the second can of peaches out so the cake doesn’t spill-over. Or you can put the cake mix and the two cans of peaches in a 9 x 113 pan to prevent spill-over. Let me know how it turns out if you try it. I’d love to know!

      1. I made this tonight. I doubled the cake (well, not the butter and sugar) and quadrupled the peaches. I drained most of the liquid from the cans and didn’t have any issues with spillover (it rose almost to the top of my glass 9×13 pan, but didn’t spill).

      1. You sure can! Self rising flour in cake (or cake-like) recipes works best when the ingredient list includes baking powder. This recipe calls for baking powder so your self rising flour should work just as well as all-purpose flour. Hope this helps!

    This was so good! My husband loved it! It’s quick, easy and delicious! Just be sure to increase the bake time if you use an 8×8 pan like I did, otherwise it will not bake all the way through with the time given.

    My husband and I both loved this cobbler. It was so easy to make.
    it will be a go to dessert!

  3. So I made this delicious looking peach cobbler for company last night and we couldn’t eat it. It was SO salty tasting! Perhaps I should have used unsalted butter? Or was it the peaches I used (they were not in heavy syrup but fruit juice)? The batter (breaded part) was highly salty. Maybe 2 tsp baking powder was too much? And I barely added any salt to the “pinch” it called for. Hmmmm I’m just baffled by what happened?

    1. I’m sorry the recipe didn’t turned out as you had hoped. Using unsalted butter could help and using canned peaches in heavy syrup would definitely sweeten it up some more. Hope these ideas help. Thanks so much for trying it!

    2. If you used self rising flour you wouldn’t need to add baking powder or salt. Maybe that’s why it was so salty.

    Easiest, most convenient and very delicious!!! Just melts in your mouth. I would only imagine what it would taste like with ice cream and whipped topping!!!

    Easiest, most convenient and very delicious!!! Just melts in your mouth. I would only imagine what it would taste like with ice cream and whipped topping!!! And I doubled the amount of peaches 🤒

    1. Ice cream and whipped topping definitely takes this dessert to the next level! I’m so glad you liked it as much as we do.

        1. I’m sorry to hear your cobbler didn’t turn out. I haven’t had it be soupy in the middle before. You may need to adjust the baking time. Add a few minutes at a time and keep checking for doneness. Thanks for your feedback!

  6. How do you alter the ingredient measurements of this recipe for a 13×9 pan as opposed to a 9×9 pan?

    1. If you double the ingredient amounts in the recipe it will work perfectly for a 13×9 pan. Hope this helps!

        1. I would try keeping the bake time the same and then just watch it closely. If you are increasing the size of the pan but are also increasing the amount of batter, it should bake about the same, but could need a little more time. Just watch it closely around 35-45 minutes. Insert a toothpick and when it comes out clean, you know it’s done!

    1. You can definitely play around with the amount of sugar if it was too sweet for your taste. Glad you enjoyed the recipe!!

    I’ve been using this recipe since I could talk. My mama and I made it countless times together. Thank you for the wonderful memory.

    1. Oh I love when good food brings back memories!! That’s what home cooked dishes are all about. So glad you enjoy the cobbler!

    Looking for an easy recipe for peach cobbler & came across this fantastic recipe. Just finished baking it and must say it is yummy. However, after reading all the reviews, made a few changes. Made it in a 11 x 7 1/2 baking dish. Cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup, added vanilla extract and the rest as the recipe is written. Next time I will cut the butter down to 1/4 as well. Thank you for posting such an awesome recipe. This is a keeper.

  9. Have been making this for years. I use self rising flour. Omit salt and baking powder. I also bake in a 9X13 aluminum disposable cake pan.

  10. 5 stars
    This recipe is easy and yummy!
    I added a pinch of cinnamon to the batter.

    Thx for sharing your recipe 😄

  11. Made this today for my Mother’s Day. Turned out really good!! My sweet Mother-in-law used to make this same cobbler back in the early 90’s. I thought I had lost the recipe but you put it on facebook, Thank you!! It is a very good and easy recipe but do add a scope of vanilla ice cream!! Perfect!!

    1. Ooh yes, ice cream is the perfect companion to the cobbler! So glad you found the recipe again.
