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 350Β° 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.Β 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.Β Our peach cobbler can be frozen. Β 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.Β 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 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!

    1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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™‚

  4. 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!

    1. 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™‚

  5. 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™‚

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

      1. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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?

    1. Yes I thought it was a lot of butter too and mine came out so soupy after it came out of the oven. The first time I did this I cut down on the butter and the sugar and it came out perfect.

    1. 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??

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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!????

  12. 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..

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

      1. 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.

  15. 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!!

  16. 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!

  17. I love ur site Mrs Luna !!!!! And i love ur happy smile & attitude towards ur honey & kids & super awesome life!!! Thanks for helping me feed my 2 Boys my husband & my son!!!! I love ur recipes & your awesome positivity!!!! Keep smiling & thanks for all u do. πŸ™‚ many blessings to you & your fam.

  18. 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?

    1. 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!

  19. My wife and I argue which peach cobbler is the best. I like more cake, and this is EXACTLY how I like it! Super easy to prep, and cook at the same time while everyone is enjoying a meal.

  20. Thank you for helping me score major husband points with this recipe. He is IN LOVE with this Peach Cobbler. I will for sure be making this often!!

  21. Wow, this was so easy to make & so tasty! We love peaches at our house, so of course this was gone so fast! This is an easy dessert for company or to take to a potluck or party.

  22. I bet you could make this cobbler with Cherries, blueberry’s or just about any fruit or berry that you wanted to. It would make a great Razzleberry cobbler. I like making Razzleberry Pies at the holidays but I bet it would be great to make it as a cobbler.

    Thanks for the idea

  23. I make a peach cobbler similar to this but i add cinnamon and substitue about 1/4 of the sugar with brown sugar. My questions is Why do we not mix the butter with other ingredients? VirTually every recEipe fot peach cobbler says not to mix them. Why?

    1. Good question..I haven’t tried. You need the juice from the canned peaches or the fresh peach option in the blog post. With frozen peaches, there isn’t juice, so maybe doing them the way you would with the fresh peaches (it’s in the post).

  24. krystyn, we LOVED IT !! I will have been married for 50 yrs this august and This is the first time i have ever had peach cobbler. I made it tonight and my husband and i just loved it. thank you!! poor guy. he said he’s had it before in the army. he just never asked me for it before. Now I know how good and how easy it is i will be making it more often.

  25. This was so simple and delicious. I find myself always buying a can of peaches when I go to the store. I did have to cook it longer than recipe said. As I like to say when trying a new recipe “Its a Keeper”

  26. Hi, you said you used canned peaches in juice. I found only canned peaches in heavy syrup. If I use them, would I have to cut down on the Sugar? I think juice isn’t as sweet as Syrup. Thank you for a fast and simple dessert. I hope mine will turn out Excellent!

  27. I have made this recipe for 45 years. i got it from my mother and i have no idea where she got it. my family love it. you can substitute canned apples for the peaches.
