Easy Peach Cobbler

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?

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.

Other Variations:

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.

    Peach cobbler is sooo delicious. I must say that my mother use to make us homemade cherry cobblers that were beyond delicious ! Fresh picked cherries from the 2 cherry trees in our back yard. We couldn’t get enough of them. My father loved them too.

  2. I’ve never made peach cobbler before, so I don’t know how it is supposed to look but that better looks rod to me. Is it supposed to have like a dumpling consistency?

    1. You’ll know when it is finished because the biscuit topping will rise to the top and become a nice golden brown. The peach filling at the bottom will be bubbly.

  3. 5 stars
    This is the first time I’ve ever made this recipe. And it turned out amazing so far . Now I’m just waiting for the finishing results. I’m anxious to try this delicious and satisfying quench.

    I love this recipes. I use it to make my husband a desert for his lunchbox. I switch it up using cherry or peach but I think I’m going to do a blueberry cobbler next.

  5. 5 stars
    We LOVE this cobbler recipe! Even my husband has learned to make it and recipes terrify that man. I’ve also made it with fresh apples and it turned out just as great. I do have a question, though. Is there any reason that fruit juice or puree couldn’t be subbed for the milk? Thanks so much for another great recipe, several of yours are on our favorites list 🙂

    1. I’m so happy to hear that! You could probably try to swap for a fruit juice or a puree with the cobbler. I’d love to hear how it turns out if you do.

    Thank you for posting. I made this dessert for Easter because it sounded easy to prepare and it was. My family loved it and I will be making it many times again.

    I made this recipe and baked it in an 8×8 ceramic baking dish.
    Since I would like to double this recipe and use 9×13 ceramic baking dish, how long should I bake it in a 350 degree oven?
    Thank you.
    Maria K

    1. I would start by adding maybe 5-10 minutes to the bake time and then just keep a close eye on it. You’ll know it’s done when the crust is a nice golden brown and the filling is hot and bubbly.

    Gave this a try, and it was delicious!! I did sprinkle a little cinnamon and nutmeg over the top. Thank you so much for the recipe.

    And Thank you for the recipe!
    I used two cans of peaches, and only used 1/2 the juice, because one did not have enough!
    I don’t know I thought it would be fluffier it was Dence and I even used let it sit before cutting to me it was too sweet! It tastes good but not fluffy! Any suggestions Lilluna or from other seasoned bakers? Thank u 😊

    1. I’d say make sure the ingredients are fresh (specifically the baking powder which is the rising agent). You can also reduce the amount of sugar if you felt that the 1 cup was too sweet.

    My family loved this when I made it for Easter and doubled the ingredients to make a cake size. Thank you for posting, I have already been asked to make it again and I will. Perfect to take along to friend’s.

    I have made this over and over again and its so good. I made some changes like placing the butter in a pot, adding the syrup from the peaches a little cinnamon and brown sugar let it come to a boil and then pour it in my baking pan, then pour the mix on top and then place the peaches all around. It always come out perfect and I am always asked to bring it to family and friends affairs.
