Classic Dessert Recipe

This Southern Peach Cobbler is one of my favorite dessert recipes of all time!

Fresh peaches are simply the best choice of course but I use frozen peaches to make it a year ’round treat! You can also use canned peaches in a pinch.

I often make a Blueberry Cobbler which has a delicious crust more reminiscent of biscuits however this easy peach cobbler recipe has more of a cake-like consistency.

Much like a blackberry cobbler, this recipe is the perfect way to enjoy summer fruit!

Southern Peach Cobbler

A Peach Cobbler has a cake layer topped with juicy peaches. The cake bubbles and surrounds the peaches creating the perfect combination of sweet, tender peaches, and cake.

Peach Cobbler Topping: A cobbler has either a biscuit topping or a cake-like layer. I’ve tried this recipe with both (we make blueberry cobbler with a biscuit like topping) and I find peach cobbler is best with a soft cakey layer.

While some make a cobbler with Bisquick or cake mix, it’s just as easy (and tastes so much better) to make a peach cobbler from scratch!

Cobbler can be confused with a fruit crisp; a crisp has a streusel-like topping with oats and often nuts.

How To Make Peach Cobbler

Making Peach Cobbler is really simple (YAY!). If using fresh peaches you’ll want to remove the skins (which is super quick and easy just like peeling tomatoes). If your peaches are sweet, you may like to reduce the sugar in this recipe!

  1. Defrost peaches if frozen. Add sugar while preparing the remaining ingredients.
  2. Melt butter and place in the baking dish.
  3. Combine batter ingredients and spread over butter.
  4. Top with peaches and bake.

Crazy easy right? I love the addition of cinnamon to the batter so it’s in every single morsel. It tends to change the color so if you’d like a white cake batter, you can certainly sprinkle the same amount of cinnamon over top of the peaches with delicious results!

To Serve Peach Cobbler: Serve this easy dessert warm or room temperature. If serving warm, we love to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. If serving room temp we add either ice cream or even whipped cream.

Leftover Cobbler

If you are lucky enough to have any left, peach cobbler can be stored in the refrigerator for about 3-4 days! While you could leave it out on the counter, there is a lot of moisture so it can go bad quickly.

Freezing Peach Cobbler: Peach cobbler freezes beautifully! It should be assembled, baked and cooled before freezing. Once cooled, seal it well and freeze up to 6 months. To reheat, simply defrost in the fridge overnight and heat in the oven (or microwave) until warmed.
