This old fashioned Peach Cobbler recipe is not only extremely easy to make from scratch, but it’s made with fresh or canned peaches so you can enjoy it all year round! It’s one of my favorite family recipes from my mom, and although I am bias, I think it’s the best of the best!

Peach Cobbler

Peach season is pretty much the best time of the year, am I right?! I love going to “pick your own” farms or buying a large box from a local vendor. Peaches are one of those things I could never get sick of! I have too many favorite peach recipes that I rotate through them each season, starting with my favorite homemade Peach freezer jam.

This peach cobbler recipe comes from my mom, and it is a family favorite recipe she made for us all the time growing up! The best part about it is that it literally takes 5 minutes to throw together! My mom often used a quart jar of homemade canned peaches, but you can also use fresh peaches!

How to easily peel peaches:

I’ve found the easiest way to peel peaches is to gently lower 2-3 peaches at a time into a pot of boiling water. Leave them in the water for about 30 seconds, and then remove them to an ice-water bath. The ice water bath will shock them and keep the peach flesh from cooking, but the peach skin will be so easy to peel that you wont even need a knife!

How to make Peach Cobbler:
  • Add the sliced peaches, sugar and salt to a saucepan and stir to combine. Cook on medium heat for just a few minutes, until the sugar is dissolved and helped to bring out some juice from the peaches. Remove from heat and set aside.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Slice butter into pieces and add to a 9×13 inch baking dish. Place the pan in the oven while it preheats, to allow the butter to melt. Once melted, remove the pan from the oven.
  • In a large bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the milk, just until combined. Pour the mixture into the pan, over the melted butter and smooth it into an even layer.

  • Spoon the peaches and juice (or canned peaches, if using) over the batter. Sprinkle cinnamon generously over the top.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. Serve warm, with a scoop of ice cream, if desired.

How to store and reheat peach cobbler:

Peach cobbler is best enjoyed warm, right after it’s baked. Store leftover cobbler covered, in the fridge for 4-5 days.

To reheat peach cobbler, use the microwave or oven. To reheat in the oven, remove it from the fridge and allow it to come to room temperature. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes or until warmed through. (Place tinfoil over it if it’s browning too much).

Tell me this isn’t the epitome of comfort food desserts?! A bowl of warm peach cobbler served with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream on top is seriously my idea of heaven.

For the batter:


  • Add the sliced peaches, sugar and salt to a saucepan and stir to combine. 

    *(If using canned peaches, skip steps 1 & 2 and follow the directions starting at step 3) 
  • Cook on medium heat for just a few minutes, until the sugar is dissolved and helps to bring out juices from the peaches. Remove from heat and set aside. 
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Slice butter into pieces and add to a 9x13 inch baking dish. Place the pan in the oven while it preheats, to allow the butter to melt. Once melted, remove the pan from the oven.
  • In a large bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the milk, just until combined. Pour the mixture into the pan, over the melted butter and smooth it into an even layer. 
  • Spoon the peaches and juice (or canned peaches, if using) over the batter. Sprinkle cinnamon generously over the top.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 38-40 minutes. Serve warm, with a scoop of ice cream, if desired.


To substitute canned peaches, use 1 quart jar, undrained.

    I made this with peaches and blueberries. It was delicious, and so easy! I will make this often and share the recipe with everyone!

  2. 5 stars
    Delicious! Very straightforward to make. I made with fresh peaches as this is peach season. Everyone went back for seconds. Thank you for sharing!

  3. 5 stars
    I had only 4 peaches so I added about 1.5 cups of frozen blueberries and used a bit less sugar in the fruit. Other than that, I followed the recipe and it turned out fine. I think I’d reduce the sugar in the fruit even more next time.

  4. Looks and smells delicious. I’m going to cook the cobbler longer to make sure crust is done. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I’ve Probably made this prach cobbler a hundred times . Its perfect every time
    never made it to the bottom of the page to leave a message!! Thank you from myself 😊my kids 2 husband’s and any number of co workers !!

  6. 5 stars
    I’ve made this several times, following the recipe exactly, and it’s perfect! I have some frozen rhubarb, and I usually make a delicious rhubarb crisp but am wondering if this cobbler recipe would work equally well with rhubarb. Any thoughts?

  7. 5 stars
    Made this today with some Niagara peaches I was canning…used maple syrup instead of sugar to simmer the peaches and added a little rum flavouring. So, so, delicious!
    Thanks for sharing!

    Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly, using fresh local peaches, and my family absolutely loved this dessert. Thank you for the recipe!

    1. 5 stars
      I’ve made this 2x today, I slightly cut down the sugar for the badder. I’m usually not a big fan of peach cobbler but this recipe is a keeper in my family! Love how it’s delicious and so easy to make.

  9. 4 stars
    We have made this several times. The first time with fresh peaches and it turned out great!

    I have made it 2x with canned peaches and the cake didn’t firm up without a lot of extra cook time. Last night I had to cook it 2 hours to get cake to firm up. I’m thinking the canned peaches have too much liquid. I am going to make it again and only use liquid from one can. Will report back.

  10. 5 stars
    Very easy recipe and it came out great! I was taught to make it with a pie crust instead of the batter by my great grandmother, she said that is a “crumble” not a cobbler but the end result is….they are both good recipes!

  11. 5 stars
    Wonderful recipe ! I used fresh peaches from my peach tree. Super easy to put together . Will use the recipe again .

  12. What a lovely recipe. I made it exactly as desribed and while making it, already thought that this is a looooot of sugar. It is really good, but way to sweet for me… although I am a sweet tooth.
    Next time … and yes I will make it again… next time I will use half the amount of sugar… max!!!

  13. 5 stars
    Amazing! Whole family loved it! I only did 1/4 cup sugar to our peaches since they were overripe off the tree, so just in case anyone else has lots of fresh peaches 🍑! Will definitely do this recipe again!!

  14. 5 stars
    This recipe is amazing! So delicious and easy to make. Thank you for sharing. I used fresh peaches that I didn’t know what to do with. They weren’t sweet but you would never know it. The recipe made them perfect.

  15. My peach’s would not peel easy and were mushy red inside they came fresh off the trunk! Also they didn’t taste good? Why?

  16. I used a homemade peach pie filling. I feared that 1 cup sugar in the batter would be way too sweet, so I only used 1/2 cup. It was perfect. If I had used fresh peaches, I probably wouldn’t have reduced the amount.

  17. 5 stars
    Yummy—reminds me of cobbler I got at school when lunches were prepared by moms and grandmothers right there in the cafeteria.

  18. Best peach cobbler ever. Tried it last year and have continued to use it with fresh peaches. Haven’t tried it yet with canned peaches.

  19. 3 stars
    I halved the sugar (peaches and batter) and added an extra peach.

    It is actually delicious now but at half the sugar it’s still just right on the too sweet side for my taste.

    The dough also only popped up and got crispy at the edges but I’m guessing it’s because I had extra filling to start with. Maybe the recipe should state how much total peach filling rather than the amount prior to cooking – might be why others are having some issues with the same thing.

    Anyway, overall really delicious the way it turned out but I halved the sugar and it’s still extremely sweet. If I make it again I’ll try using just a quarter cup of sugar in the batter.

  20. 5 stars
    I keep trying recipes until I find one that pleases me. This is it. This will be my go-to peach cobbler recipe. Everyone loved it.

    Peaches are in season and we’ve made this 2 times in the last couple of weeks- it’s fantastic!!
    It’s easy and quick to put together, which also is a BIG win.

    It’s delicious! I added blackberries that I had in the fridge. A definite crowd pleaser. The recipe produced a great crusty top.

    1. Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts. It’s true, the number of ads online can be a lot. In short, many sites use ads to keep their content free. More ads can mean more revenue for them. It’s a tightrope walk between keeping users happy and paying the bills.

  23. 5 stars
    Incredible recipe, but I agree too much sugar in the peaches (and I never think that). Next time I’ll do 1/2 a cup.

  24. 5 stars
    Made it my first time today. I thought there was NO way it would cook up, but it turned out beautifully. I cooked it almost an hour and the edges were chewy and absolutely wonderful. Peaches were not skinned and it didn’t matter . . perfection. Thank you for sharing!

    It tastes great, but I was surprised how soupy it was. I’m not sure I’d cook the peaches ahead of time next time. My batter only popped up at edges. Will try something different next time.

    Peach Cobbler is my all time favorite dessert. I tried this recipe yesterday and it was absolutely delishious. My husband even says it was the best one I’ve made. Thank you for sharing

  28. So easy to put together! I used canned sliced peaches, to make it even more simple to assemble. I tossed in some raspberries as well. So yummy! Turned out perfect. I cooked mine a few minutes longer, but that was just a personal preference. Will definitely make again!

  29. 5 stars
    Just made today and it was an absolute hit with my family. I’m not sure what others did to have such horrible experiences but in my case I followed the recipe as written except I used jar peaches instead. The only complaint that I have is there wasn’t enough lol. I will be definitely doubling the recipe next time—tomorrow

    Great cobbler! However, the mobile version of your website has so many ads on it it’s almost unusable. Every time you touch the screen to scroll to the next part, it reloads itself and brings you all the way to the bottom or the top of the page. I understand running ads, but not like this.

    1. Tip for you- I just click the “print recipe” to view a page that is free of ads. It won’t make you print it, just takes you to a page layout that’s meant for printing. Easier to follow!

  31. 2 stars
    Sadly, we were disappointed with this recipe. This recipes, as written, leaves a bunch of sugary mush with the peaches after cooking. This would be better if there were eggs and less sugar in the batter. We will be using a different recipe for next time.

  32. 5 stars
    Burned my butter as I took too long getting the batter part assembled. Ugh! I started over and watched carefully the second time. I baked in an aluminum pan as that was all I had in that size. My peaches were very ripe so I didn’t cook them nor add sugar before placing them on top of the batter. The batter did pop through! I checked the date on my baking powder and threw one outdated container in the garbage. I didn’t want to risk it not rising due to old baking powder. It looks beautiful! Hmmmm….how do I add a photo?? Will do if I get it figured out.

  33. 5 stars
    Absolutely delicious. So easy to make and it comes together pretty quick. I also liked the tip about removing the skin of the peaches. Will definitely make again (and again and again).

  34. 5 stars
    Made this according to recipe using 2 cans of peaches with about half the syrup & topped with sliced almonds. Fantastic!! I’ll use this recipe with different fruit like cherries, blueberries, etc in the future, a keeper!

  35. 5 stars
    Oh my gosh, this was an absolute hit in my household! I followed the recipe, used fresh Palisade Colorado peaches, and extended the cooking time to an hour. It was crunchy on top and gooey on the inside, so GOOD! We are also a mile high in elevation, if that helps. We will definitely use this recipe again!

  36. 1 star
    the cake was kind of doughy in the middle i think because of the butter and it was a little mushy

    1. 5 stars
      You may not of followed Lauren’s directions properly. It turned out amazingly well and my man has asked for it again and again!

  37. 2 stars
    Way too much sugar. Look at others online and you’ll see they have almost half this amount. It also comes out soggy and pudding like. Probably better to find a different recipe.

  38. 5 stars
    I don’t love fruit desserts but I couldn’t get enough of this! It reminded me of home. Worth every bite!

  39. Tried the “from scratch” peach cobbler recipe after not finding one of those packaged cobbler mixes in the store. I loved it and so did my son. We ate the whole dish in one day…no leftovers for the next day. May use a little less sugar next time.

  40. 4 stars
    Tasted great! I used 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. The edges caramelized much like a pineapple upside down cake. That was the best part. However, I had to cook the cobbler 5 minutes longer than directed, probably could have cooked an additional 5 minutes or more. The center was more like tapioca pudding than a bready cobbler. If you like tapioca pudding, you would have liked this. If you like your cobbler more bready, continue to cook beyond the recommended time, and/or turn up the temperature.

  41. 5 stars
    Delicious recipe.I cut back on the sugar slightly because I’m bound to serve the cobbler warm, with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream !

    Thank You.

    I have been using this recipe for 3 years now. Best peach cobbler ever. Used fresh peaches from the orchard.

  43. 1 star
    The cake part did not cook properly. It was mushy ,like eating cream of wheat. Such a waste of peaches.never again!

    1. 5 stars
      Best recipe ever!
      Those of you who say it’s too mushy, too doughy, too sugary….don’t follow directions well. It’s a super easy recipe for a beginner (“yes, a child could make it” quote from Chef Jean Pierre) and you just need to follow Lauren’s instructions!
      Try it again!

  44. 5 stars
    This is the first time I have ever made peach cobbler from fresh picked peaches. It was so yummy I didn’t change a thing except I only had 4 peaches but this was quite by accident so I tried to adjust ingredient amounts here and there to match the amount of peaches I had but truthfully it was truly delish.

  45. 5 stars
    This peach cobbler recipe takes me back to my childhood, when my Georgia grandma would make us homemade peach cobbler. This is as perfect as hers and we loved it!

  46. 5 stars
    This was so delicious and easy to make. I made it just as instructed and baked it for 45 minutes and it turned out perfectly. Thank you for sharing!

  47. To die for GOOD. Just made it following recipe to the tee. O my gosh this is soooo good. Finally a keeper. Thank you. You can’t have just 1 bowl.

    Best peach cobbler recipe to savour the flavour of this awesome August fruit!!! Easy to make. Entire lasagna pan size so GREAT for company!!

  49. No such thing as a “small scoop of ice cream”, vanilla or any other flavor in this house!!! Great recipe, easy and very tasty.

  50. Very good. A bit sweet so will use a bit less sugar. I felt like the pan was too big and the resulting cobbler was somewhat thin in terms of depth. May will use a smaller pan next time. But very good and easy! Used fresh peaches. Am

    Absolutely supurb that is some of the best peach cobbler. I have ever eaten in my life and I’m 69. When I get my check on the third I will order your cookbook. Because homemade is that one way to problem

  52. 5 stars
    I have made the same peach cobbler recipe most of my life. It’s good. Since I looove allll of Lauren’s recipes and her cookbook, I decided to try hers a few months ago. Hands down the best peach cobbler I have ever had. My husband and I were blown away!! And bonus, it’s easier ti make than my old one. I also made her cherry cobbler since her peach cobbler was soooo amazing! And wow, cherry cobbler is a huge hit as well!!!!

  53. 5 stars
    This is excellent and reminds me of my great grandmother’s recipe. Most other recipes online are disappointing and create a biscuit type “crust” that is not satisfying. This recipe creates the chewy, buttery crust I remember from my childhood. Thank you so much for sharing!!!

  54. This turned out good. I think I’d cut back on sugar next time🤔 Just a bit sweeter than I remember as a child when granny made it. Used fresh peaches maybe they were sweeter than I thought.

    1. 5 stars
      So, I had 5 cups of peaches and a whole stick of butter. Also, most importantly, I accidentally forgot about the sugar for the biscuit part until I almost put the peach mixture on top. I read “pour the mixture over the melted butter…. What? How? It’s like a biscuit mixture. What did I miss”. Then I realized it was sugar 🤦‍♀️ That’s vital, so I added it in the pan and stirred it all together along with the melted butter.
      Then I poured the peach mixture over TOP. I added a few minutes to the timer because my oven is old and ridiculous and didn’t get all the way up to 350. But seriously it turned out PERFECTLY! After all that!

  55. 5 stars
    So good!!! The edges were buttery, sweet, and sticky- my favorite part!
    Served warm with ice cream. It won’t last long in my house

    This is the recipe I have been looking for. It is easy and delicious!!
    I used gluten free flour and 1/2 of the sugar and the other 1/2 was sweetener. It was cooked in a glass 13×9 dish.
    The cobbler cooked with the batter rising in patches out of the peaches just like it was supposed to. The flavor is amazing! Thank you for such a wonderful recipe!

  57. 5 stars
    Thank you for this recipe! I had never made a peach cobbler before and, with an excess of ripe peaches, decided to give it a go — so glad I did! It didn’t even last 24 hours, we destroyed it. I blanched the peaches to remove the skin and highly recommend that method.

  58. This recipe is a perfect quick dessert. Used fresh peaches cooking as directed (was a bit worried adding all the peach juice) and it all baked perfectly like the picture in 45 min. I just added a bit of vanilla to the batter. I’ll definitely make it again. The family loved it.

  59. 5 stars
    Easy to make! Tastes great!! Of course I used what my cupboards offered. Whole wheat flour, Stevia in lieu of granulated sugar, cooked it in a cast iron Dutch oven. My flour mixture didn’t bust through so I cooked it 5 minutes longer and it still tastes great. I had more than 5 peaches and I added raisins so I probably had too much weight for the baking powder lolol. I WILL make this again.

  60. 1 star
    I uses exact same measurements and my batter never surfaced over peaches like shown in this recipe. Bit disappointing but it still tasted ok.

  61. Delicious! We ate at a diner recently, and peach cobbler was the dessert, but they were out of it, and I’ve been craving it ever cents.

    My 13yr old son wanted Peach Cobbler right? So I said ok here’s a recipe, I’m not helping other than to put in the oven and take out… so it’s done, I take it out of the oven while we finish dinner.
    Ummmm…I am like, son, you’re in trouble!!!
    THE heavans opened up and this is crispy, PEACHY tasting, ooey gooey goodness that I HAD to have seconds.
    Needless to say I am shocked at not only how my 13yr old could make this, but how this is a must have hit moving forward!! SOOOOOO GOOOD!! Move over birthday cake, nothings better than this!

  63. 5 stars
    THIS IS THE BOMB!! Don’t listen to the folks who have no idea what a real cobbler is. It’s supposed to be sweet and if they followed this exactly (I used real peaches) the crust would have come out perfect. If you lessen the sugar it’s not a real Peach Cobbler; it’s just a peach crust pie. If you don’t use the right size pan the crust won’t cook properly. btw- I wish people would review the actual recipe and not give their version of what it should be. Write your own recipe. 🤦🏽‍♀️🙄

  64. 4 stars
    Made this yeserday. Came out good except that the center was less baked than the edges. What can be done to make sure it cooks more evenly. Because it needed 1 hr at 350. Otherwise it was good.

    1. Hi,

      You have to know your oven
      1. Maybe turn the pan halfway through. I have to do that with my oven due to cold/hot spots.
      2. You do need to heat the butter before adding the batter
      3. Make sure the pan is the right size, also it could be the difference of a glass or nonstick pan.
      4. Do not change anything about the recipe.

      I only give this advice because I absolutely cannot bake. Zero skills. I have tried many recipes and they never come out like my Grandma’s. This one got rave reviews from the last family gathering we had.

  65. 4 stars
    I loved this recipe as a template because I adjusted the sugar (used less than half because the peaches were sweet on their own.) Also, cut the butter in half and still had a buttery flavor. I used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup all purpose flour. The cobbler turn out great and we finished it off so quickly I had to make another batch!

  66. 5 stars
    This recipe was amazing! The sweetness of cooked peaches and the golden crispy baked crust was heavenly. I made it for my dad’s birthday, and my dad, little brother, and I loved it! It was such an easy and quick dessert to make that had the house smelling so good. It was great with vanilla ice cream also🤩

  67. 5 stars
    Excellent. Didn’t add sugar to peaches and didn’t cook. I used French flour and 1/4 c sugar. Very sweet.
    Thank you for the recipe.

    This is a great, easy cobbler recipe. I made it yesterday and it was all eaten within 18 hours. I just made another dish of it because my oldest didn’t grab any before it was eaten up…and I had more peaches. Really delish with fresh from Farmer’s Market Michigan Red Haven peaches. Yum! I read some who felt it was a bread pudding. Maybe not a traditional biscuit topping but in my very Southern roots I do not believe it is a bread pudding! This is saved in my fast, easy, and delicious category!

  69. 5 stars
    This recipe was delicious, simple and came out perfect. My peaches were a little on the tart side and the cobbler recipe worked great. I did add a quarter tsp. of pumpkin spice to the peaches.

    This was my first attempt at Peach Cobbler. The recipe was easy to follow with simple ingredients. It turned out slightly crispy and just the right texture throughout. It tasted amazing!

    1. 4 stars
      Easy quick recipe but I agree with some of the other reviewers that it was far too sweet. Next time I’ll cut the sugar mixed with peaches in half. I used ripe peaches.

  71. I loved the peach cobbler recipe! So easy because I had all the ingredients needed. The peach cobbler was nice and sweet and it came out exactly like your picture!

  72. 5 stars
    I don’t know what those other people did when following this recipe, but this came out PERFECTLY for me. Not watery. Soft and fluffy. The best peach cobbler ever. I didn’t have as many peaches as the recipe called for, so I cut the sugar just a little but I left all the other ingredients exactly as called and followed the recipe to the letter. Perfection. So good. I could eat the entire pan right out of the oven. Love this so much. Can’t wait to make it again and I just pulled it out of the oven.

  73. 1 star
    Agree with others that there is something off with the ratios. The batter is soggy and not fully cooked and it was way too sweet. What a waste of some beautiful peaches 😣

  74. 4 stars
    Like some others, mine tasted great, but it was very gooey. It got more gooey over time, too. I didn’t get the nice layer of crispy dough like in your photo. Either the peaches released too much juice, or the dough needed a bit more flour. I’m going to try with more flour.

  75. 5 stars
    I just found this recipe and decided to use it bc it was simple to make and we had 7 peaches vs the 5 it calls for, but was able to use all of them. I try to watch the amount of sugar in my baking to help my Hispanic wife ward off Diabetes, so I used some Xylitol with Brown sugar in the peaches and I used All natural Moreno Sugar in the dough. It was quite simple to do and we had all the ingredients we needed already in our cupboard and fridge. I will do a follow-up once we get it in a Bowl with some Whipped Cream and taste it, but really enjoyed how simple it was to make!

  76. Wow so delicious and easy to make! I had peaches I needed to use before they went back and found this recipe that looked simple to make. I cut down on the sugar (halved it) because my peaches were super sweet. The butter really adds to the greatness of this recipe because you can taste it in every bite… It is amazing

  77. 2 stars
    I don’t know where I went wrong but this was the worst cobbler I’ve ever made. It was like the cobbler dough never fully cooked, even after I extended the bake time by a few minutes. Sadly, not my fave.

  78. Made this yesterday and turned out a quite watery. I wonder if due to overripe peaches? The flavor came through though. Maybe next time I will add less sugar too.

  79. 1 star
    This recipe is just not right all around. First off, the peach filling has too much sugar. Second, the flour topping is never put into the pan before the peach filling. It didn’t get golden brown, didn’t rise like a biscuit topping should, and was soggy. Finally, the amount of filling is not nearly enough-I think this recipe is better suited for a 9×9 inch pan rather than a 9×13. I’ll move on to another, more traditional recipe next time.

  80. Hi…Sounds delicious. Want to make but need to confirm if using jars or cans, Do not Drain? Pour contents of can(s) -to make apprx 4 cups? Thank You

    This is so tasty! I ended up using half peaches and half blackberries from our farmers market, and it was a winner. I think it would also be tasty with raspberries, or of course just peaches. Definitely use fresh if available!! Easy recipe!

  82. 5 stars
    What an easy recipe. Was so delighted at the quality of the flavor. My family ate it up quick. Was so yummy over some vanilla ice-cream.

  83. I made this last week. It was sooo good. In fact my husband asked me to make it again this week. He asked if I could make apple too. I used more peaches because mine were kind of small. I also added a dash of vanilla to the batter. The pan was gone within a couple days. Do you have a recipe for apple cobbler?

    1. Wow, we are thrilled to hear you and your husband enjoyed the peach cobbler so much! 🍑 Extra peaches and a dash of vanilla sound like delicious tweaks – I’ll have to give that a try next time I whip it up.

      Absolutely, we have an apple cobbler recipe that’s just as delightful. Here’s the link for you: Hope it’s a hit at your house just like the peach one. Let me know how it turns out!

    The recipe is good except that there is way too much sugar in it. The peaches are sweet already and hardly need any more sugar, and the batter only needs half a cup to sweeten.

  85. This is an excellent recipe. I accidentally browned the butter once when I made it by leaving it in the oven for too long, and it turned out better than ever. Now I always brown the butter when I make this. I also reduce the sugar in the peaches to 1/4 cup and it’s plenty sweet. It’s also great to add some blackberries to it.

    This is my go to cobbler recipe! So simple and a crowd pleaser. I find it usually take about 33-35 minutes to bake as things start browning up within that timeframe. I also sub brown sugar for granulated in the peach mixture – I find it adds more depth to the flavor. Love this recipe!

    1. This is the best peach cobbler recipe ever!! made this recipe on August 13th, 2023 as well and thought about swapping out the granulated sugar with brown sugar so thank you for posting. How did it turn out?

  87. 5 stars
    I love this recipe!! I have made it a few times now and it is so yummy 🙂 I’ve also tried swapping the peaches out for blackberries and raspberries which tasted great for a perfectly sweet berry cobbler!! I highly suggest making this recipe!!

  88. Made this last week with fresh picked peaches from the Orchard, it turned out wonderful. Would like to add blueberries this time & brown sugar. Hope it turns out as good.

  89. Curious if I would be able to swap in vegan butter and a non-dairy milk and get the same results? Have you tried that? Recipe sounds so good!

    1. 5 stars
      My boyfriend & I made this tonight completely gluten and dairy free (gluten free flour, vegan butter, oat milk) and it actually turned out surprisingly great. I’d recommend at least trying it!

  90. Hi, this sounds great and I want to make it to bring to friend’s party.
    I have a bag of frozen peaches and want know if I can use it in this recipe.
    (If not I can get the canned ones)

    1. Yes, just allow the peaches to thaw first (taste them, and if they’re not overly sweet, you can add some sugar to them like you would with fresh), and add them, with their juice, on top of the batter.

    I came home from vacation to find the branches of my peach trees just about on the ground, loaded with ripe peaches. I’ve made 9 of these in the last 3 days, taken one to work, passed out to friends & family & kept two at home, lol 😂 This is a great easy recipe & the taste is amazing. I did add a splash of vanilla to the batter & a little cinnamon. Yummy. Also note, I’ve doubled this recipe & divided between 3 8×8″ pans and added 5 min to the cook time. Comes out a little deeper in the pans, worked great! This is one of my go-to’s during peach season! 🍑

    Made this with very ripe fresh Jersey Peaches! Was delicious warm with vanilla ice cream! Yummy

  93. I had a large can of peaches and needed a quick dessert. This recipe was quick, easy and delicious! I’ll make it again for sure!

  94. This is a recipe that I’ve been making all my life. My mom and granny always called it bachelor’s cobbler because it’s so easy to throw together and very impressive for a single guy to make for his girlfriend when he invites her over for dinner

  95. 4 stars
    I love this recipe even more after reducing the sugar. The first time I made it, I thought, “Hmm, somebody has a sweet tooth, and it’s not me!” I read the reviews to reduce sugar, so the next time I was less generous – 1/2c w/ peaches, 3/4c in dough. Still too sweet with my homemade vanilla ice cream. The perfect ratio for my taste buds: 1/3c brown sugar in peaches, 1/2c white in dough. While not like my Southern born mom’s – made with fresh peaches from our tree – it is an easy, perfect substitute!

  96. I would never be called a baker. I used canned peaches and this turned out perfect! I didn’t make any adjustments, just topped with salted caramel ice cream. It was huge success.

    1. 5 stars
      This recipe is amazing and easily the best recipe I’ve found. I would like to know how you would suggest converting it for blackberries though. I don’t much care for peach cobbler but can eat an entire pan of blackberry!

    this is honestly so good. my family is not the biggest fan of cinnamon but loved it. and I’ve been baking for so long, so I’m surprised it turned out so good. also, it was amazing when I substituted all the white sugar for brown, really made the carmalization difference. Amazing!

      This peach cobbler recipe is incredible! I read the reviews, and I didn’t think the recipe was too sweet. But I did use real peaches instead of canned (which is where I could see much of the sweetness coming from). I used six instead of five peaches, and it turned out just perfect. I did add a splash of vanilla to my peach mixture as well. I also baked the batter in the pan without the peaches first, for about 2-3 minutes and then added the peaches. I cannot stress it enough – this peach cobbler is a crowd pleaser!! I served it for my mom’s birthday and no crumbs were left. Everyone loved it! Even the toughest critic at party had nothing to critique.

  98. 1 star
    I don’t know why this is the highest rated peach cobbler on the internet. The crust is not fluffy. It is like hardened butter/flour. It’s not what a cobbler crust is supposed to be like. I have had others that are much better.

      Sounds like your baking powder might have gone off. Also, ensure you are using baking powder and not baking soda. There is nothing wrong with this recipe. I just made it as written and it turned out great.

    2. 5 stars
      I had that experience when I used expired/ non active baking powder. Ensure your baking powder is still active and don’t over mix the batter. Hope this helps

    I just put mine in to the oven but it already smells delicious.
    Your recipe is a bit confusing fit me because it only calls for 1 cup sugar and 1/4tsp of salt. In your instructions you mentioned twice sugar and salt. Once on the peaches and farther down in the batter. So I took it as to use the amount twice. Which is what I did. I hope that is what you meant. I follow recipes to the T so I hope it comes out good.

    The cinnamon part threw me bc of course I never read til the end where it said sprinkle w cinnamon. I added some to the batter which was just as tasty! My mom just about licked the plate!

    Made this for our church lunch, I barely got any!! I did add some cinnamon a splash of vanilla and just a dash of cloves while the peaches cooked. I had to use frozen peaches but it was still wonderful served with icecream. I did put it under the broiler at the end for just a minute to crisp up the center of the cobbler.

    My wife commented the other day that she would like to try a real peach cobbler. I found this recipe online and thought I would give it a shot. It was amazing. Not only was it delicious it was super easy to make. All three generations at the table loved it. I’ll be making this again.

  104. I love this recipe, it’s my go-to for peach cobbler! I do admit to changing things up a bit it in, like adding a splash of vanilla to both the peaches and the batter. I also substitute some of the sugar in the peaches for brown sugar and add the cinnamon while cooking them to add more depth. I also leave the butter in the oven long enough to make it brown butter, because that adds a lot of flavor!! I personally don’t think its too sweet, it pairs great with icecream or just by itselfz!

    1. Ohh!!! I’m making this as I type and the brown butter is gonna have to be the way to go!! I also used brown sugar and did the same as you with the peaches and added a smidge of cloves… oh it smells SO GOOD!!! Thanks for the tips!

    EXCELLENT and so easy. I left skins on my peaches and was perfect and less work. Will make it again & again!

    1. This was waaay too sweet!!!
    2. How can a recipe for 5 peaches or one for 12 peaches still both be 4 cups, all using a 9×13” pan!?
    I’ll not make it again.

  107. Very disappointed in this recipe. Thought I’d try a ‘spoon peaches over batter’ method since there are many such recipes online but be warned this is not going to be a crisp crust like pie crust cobbler. In fact 4C of peaches and 1C of flour and sugar results in a spongey, gooey offering that is just mush. You’d be better off putting a store-bought frozen pie crust on top of the fruit. Maybe my idea of cobbler is different than others’ but next time I’ll make a dough, not batter for this dish.

    1. I’ve lived and grown up in the south my whole entire life. The best peach cobbler is the “soggy” kind. Some people have crispy crusts; but that’s not a cobbler.

  108. Possibly the best peach cobbler I’ve ever had. I see a lot of reviews talking about they changed this, or changed that, and then complain because it didn’t turn out exactly right. I followed the recipe to the letter, and it was absolutely amazing. I wouldn’t change a thing.

  109. 5 stars
    Thanks, Lauren! This is a quick and easy recipe with dee-licious results! I love it and so does my husband! We added a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream too! Will be making it soon when our son comes for a visit in mid August! 💗🍑

    I haven’t had a proper cobbler since childhood and landed on this one because it was like I remembered except the family cobblers failed a bit, with only half the batter rising to the top. I still ate them because I’m weird and added half & half because that’s how I like it.

    I didn’t find this too sweet but I have a very sweet tooth. I like desserts that make my teeth hurt, hehe. I also like this recipe because the method she used for peeling the peaches was how I did it when I worked at Marie Callendar’s making fresh peach pies. I reminisced, I guess.

    One change I’d make is more spice because I like slap you face flavors. Otherwise nothing else to change on this recipe. Thanks for the memories!

    Waaay too sweet ! I already halved the amount of sugar in peaches .. and still too much ! I had very sweet peaches however ..
    Also added 1/4 tsp of nutmeg that I somehow remembered from other recipes .

  113. My hubby and I thought it was too sweet and I would cut down on the sugar in the crust especially. We also added ice cream which made it even sweeter.

      Adjust the sugar according to how sweet your peaches are, mine weren’t quite ripe so the amount of sugar was fine. If you have ripe peaches they’ll be sweeter and need less sugar, also way too much butter. I would probably use half the amount next time I make this, once the cobbler cooled you could feel the butter coating your mouth in a film. Also ended up giving me serious acid reflux so if you also have heartburn problems just be aware.

  115. 5 stars
    I made this by now probably like more than 10 times… a couple of things: Bake it longer… Or even broil it towrds the end to get nice crips top… Second, use 1/3 of the total recommended sugar. Its waay to sweet. thinking the sugar also comes from fruits… Also if you wanna add ice cream on top just imagine.but otherwise very easy, delicious recipe. TY!

    My first ever peach cobbler and it was a hit! I actually made 3 in one night and added a cup of rhubarb to one of them and it was amazing!!!! I also added the cinnamon to the flour mixture by mistake and then made all of them that way.

  118. Didn’t work for me. I did add less sugar because I knew it would be too sweet. I always use less sugar in recipes and have no problem. I think it’s way too much milk, too runny and never did set.

    Just finished eating this after following the directions exactly. It is far too sweet. With the oven already preheated at 350, it did not give a crispy enough crust with 38-40 minutes. It was soggy on the bottom and could taste the flour.

      This recipe was so simple & so good. I was gifted a case of fresh peaches at a farm in southern NJ & immediately thought of peach cobbler. In this instance, I substituted regular milk with coconut milk & regularsugar with Monk fruit sugar. I’m so happy that I found this recipe!

    Easy recipe, wonderful smelling home. Haven’t taken a bite yet, looks a tiny bit doughy in the middle but I would say it’s just shy on being done. Cooked for 42 mins- added 1/4 cup brown sugar, only 1/2 white sugar. Canned peaches (forgot to save the juice)

    All in all- my house smells great and everyone’s mouths are watering!

    Man, such a disappointment! I was super excited about finding an easy peach cobbler recipe, but this unfortunately did not hit the spot. The cobbler portion tasted bad, and doesn’t give that cobbler taste or consistency. Go with a more traditional recipe when you create a more dough-like consistency where you mix butter into the flour mixture and place on top of peaches, not melting butter at the bottom and pouring the batter and peaches on top.

  131. Make sure you have good, non-expired baking powder; it is essential for this recipe.

    Every negative review I see saying this turned into goop; I was worried at first, but the baking powder acts as a rising agent, so as the batter cooks it incorporates the melted butter and turns the upside down cobbler right side up with nice, butter-cooked syrupy peaches and a lovely browned, crisp top. Really fun to watch in the oven, excellent results.

    Based on the reviews, I was really looking forward to this, however, it turned out to be dud. I followed the recipe and the video exactly, but it never baked in the center. The center turned out to be all butter, cinnamon and peaches. It’s like all of the butter went to the center. I even left it in the oven for an additional 12 minutes, hoping the center would form, but it never did. Such a waste of fresh peaches. We did get about 3 servings from around the edges, it was a little sweet, but I don’t know if that is because of the way it baked or if it was just too much sugar to begin with. This recipe is not a keeper for me.

    Was a big hit with dinner guests and was much simpler than some other cobbler recipes. Didn’t pre-cook the (fresh) peaches, just mixed with the sugar and salt and let sit for 30 minutes while getting everything else ready. Served with vanilla ice cream. A keeper!!

  136. 4 stars
    Cooking time in our oven had to be reduced to 30 min. Easy to make. Biggest & messiest task were peeling & chopping the peaches

  137. I was excited to try this recipe after reading the reviews! Unfortunately it ended up overly greasy with a lot of butter floating on top. I love butter, but this result wasn’t appealing. The peaches were good, but that’s just because they were real good peaches, perfectly ripe and fresh. I followed the recipe exactly. I bake a lot and it’s rare that recipes don’t turn out for me. I’m definitely not an expert, but in hindsight the method used for this cobbler as far as the butter at the bottom is a little odd. I don’t think this is the recipe for us. I’ll look for one that blends the butter in with the rest of the cake ingredients etc.

    I made this exactly as described, just halved the recipe for my husband and I. It came out just wonderful, we loved it!! (Added a little vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg to the peaches as they cooked as recommended in some other comments.) THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! 😋 My first peach cobbler was a hit.

    Truly the best peach cobbler ever. My very discerning daughters now turn up their noses at all other versions!

  144. Please adjust this recipe. I doubled it, put in a 9×13 pan as the recipe said, and it’s not cooked in the middle despite being in the oven for 40 minutes. The edges are turning dark dark brown and on the verge of burning. I will never make this recipe again.

    1. Teresa, I’m so sorry–This recipe as written is for a 9×13” pan. If you double the recipe I’d suggest using a second pan, a larger pan, or if you want to fit it in a 9×13 pan it will require a longer cook time because of the increase, and you could cover it with aluminum foil to keep it from getting too brown.

      1. I doubled the recipe and added 1tsp of cardamom, 1 tsp of cinnamon and 3 tablespoons of brown sugar to the peaches while they cooked a bit. Also I used almond milk instead of regular milk and baked it for about an hour! DELICIOUS! I love, love, LOVE the butteriness! M

  145. First time making this recipe. It looked very liquid going into the oven. It came out moist and sugar glazed. Giving the cake a firmness and peach gooey perfection. Topping it with a cool whip dollop. Mmm.

  146. I made this recipe today and I used canned peaches. I really wish you have said at the beginning of the recipe if using canned peaches do not drain you need the juice. So now the desserts is made without the juice I missed your note at the very end of the recipe. Having company hope it will still be good. Thanks for posting this recipe just the same.

    This is the 2nd time I’ve made this. I made a few changes and it’s perfect now! I melted 1 stick butter and only used 3/4 cup sugar in dough. I used 1/4 cup brown sugar in the simmered peaches, not white sugar. I had fresh smaller peaches and it took 10 of them. This is a keeper! Wish I could post a picture of how brown beautiful it turned out

  148. 5 stars
    Absolutely delicious. I personally added a couple spoonfuls of brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a dash of vanilla to the peach filling. Also, if you like a really bready cobbler, I’d probably make more of the batter. Overall, amazing and not too complex, will be making again.

    Cobbler isn’t really a thing in the UK, but after reading a book where the character was obsessed with peach cobbler, I was intrigued. This recipe looked simple and I am pleased to say I wasn’t disappointed! It is delicious!
    I used vegan butter and oat milk for the recipe and 3 tins of peaches in juice not syrup, so I drained and cooked them in the sugar as directed. I used less sugar and it was still very sweet, but everyone loved it. I can’t believe it was so straightforward. Thank you for the recipe, it is going in my recipe book as a staple for sure!
    Now I just need to know what other fruits I could use instead of peaches…

    This was my first time making a peach cobbler and let me tell you, so good!!
    I saw plenty of comments saying it was too sweet so i reduced the amount of sugar and I may reduce further the next time i make this.
    I added some vanilla when cooking the peaches on the stove
    Overall, a delicious and easy dessert to make! Goes perfectly with some vanilla ice cream 🙂

  156. This is my default cobbler recipe! I love it with peaches and I’ve just tried it with kiwi fruit (and a bit of vanilla in the sponge). Delicious, easy and an absolute staple!

    Too sweet for me, even after reducing to ~1/3 c sugar with the peaches. Next time I’ll reduce further. Trust your instincts according to your taste. I’ll admit I didn’t want to peel the peaches or cook them in advance, as I had nice ripe peaches, and it was delicious regardless. (I did cut the peach slices in half so there wouldn’t be any long strings of skin.) Still, solid base recipe!

    This recipe was easy and very good! I used fresh peaches. BUT when I make it again, I will use a smaller pan, probably 11×7 or even 10×10.

    Tried this recipe just now and it’s good but it is FAR too sweet, and I already trimmed 1/4 cup of sugar from both the batter and peaches. Next time I’ll reduce the sugar by 1/2 cup for both the peaches and batter. I also added vanilla to the peaches.

    Peach season is the best time of year and this cobbler is delectable. I only had a 9″round and it was beautiful. It is at its best warm and the moist juicy cobbler/peach ratio, the buttery edges [next time 3 Tbs butter for 9″round ] This is such a great peach year that im freezing a bunch so I can have peach cobbler year round.

    I was trying to replicate my Grandmother’s recipe for peach cobbler that I so fondly remember. This looked like I thought hers tasted so I tried it! It was close to it and with a few minor adjustments it will be spot on! I just need to thin out the batter some. The taste was perfect! My entire family loved it including my 2 yo granddaughter who asked for more! This will go in our family cookbook for others for years to come!

  167. Turned out great! I used some very ripe fresh peaches and it was a hit with the family. I had been so used to making my granny’s recipe that called for Bisquick but I didn’t have any on hand and wanted to use up the peaches before they went bad, and decided to try this out.
    For those in the comments who had complaints about texture and such, here are a few tweaks to the recipe that I used for myself to make a great batch.

    1. I had a lot of juice in my fresh peaches and if using canned, cook them with a little bit of sugar until it thickens up? I cooked mine as recipe called for (though used 1/4 cup less sugar) and my juice was quite thick when it went into the batch. You want a sauce, just not a runny/watery one.
    2. I used an entire stick of Unsalted Butter, not a few tablespoons. I’m telling you, use the FULL stick.
    3. I added Vanilla extract to the Peaches as they were cooking.
    4. I sifted my flour, salt, baking powder together. Then I added just a dash extra baking powder so it would rise/puff up nicely and it did. My dough turned out very cake/biscuit like.
    5. Instead of using 1 cup of granulated sugar, I used 1/2 cup of Raw Cane sugar and 1/4 cup of Brown sugar. That gave the crust a golden color and caramelized into a nice crunchy/chewy texture when it cooked.
    6. I cooked it for 50 minutes and it came out perfection.

    I hope this will help others with variation ideas, or even fix whatever the issue was with their versions. Mine was very firm and had plenty of texture, the peaches and its sauce created delicious valleys in the dough, and the rest was puffed up great. So, with a few small tweaks, I think this recipe worked wonderfully!

    1. This recipe looks great – can’t wait to try it an Katerina thank you for the tweaks. I have one question about the peaches if you’re using them from a can. What do you do with the juice in the can? Is that what you cook the canned peaches in or do you use it (all of it?) in the later steps (step 5 in the recipe)?

      I’ll definitely take your advice on vanilla, and substituting the white sugar for raw + brown – that’d taste so good! Thanks!

    I made this recipe for the first time last week and it was delicious.
    I am making two more to serve as refreshments at a meeting and was wondering if anyone had reheated the cobbler.
    I want to make them the night before and reheat them before serving, but wasn’t sure if this is a good idea.

    1. Cathy Wilson, I reheated two servings at a time for 30 seconds in the microwave and it was still great.

  169. Hello, this might be a dumb question, but… if i do a double recipe, still in a 9×13 pan, should i double the baking time? Or are there any changes to baking time at all? Thank you.

    1. I would not put double the ingredients in one pan. If you need more cobbler use another 9X13 pan and make another cobbler.

  170. Can I substitute Splenda so that I can make this for a friend who is allergic to sugar? Thank you for a delicious recipe that worked very well with sugar.

    Amazing recipe! First time making peach cobbler and it turned out great!

    – I added vanilla extract to my peach cobbler but other than that this recipe is fantastic!

    First time making peach cobbler. I like the simple recipe, added some ginger, allspice and nutmeg, my favorite spices. My husband is trying it, says it’s delicious 🤤.

    This recipe was simple and SO GOOD!! Perfect way to use fresh peaches! Cobbler is one of my favorites and I’ve never made it before – this was easy and tasted delicious!

    Followed recipe except only had brown sugar in the house. Turned out amazing. If you use brown sugar I would recommend using about half the amount.

    Made this for our July 4th dinner and received many compliments! The only adjustment I made was adding nutmeg with the cinnamon. Thanks for a wonderfully delicious and easy recipe!

    I have made this recipe multiple times and it is simply fantastic. Fall of 2022, used fresh ripe peaches. Made again in Feb. 2023 with the frozen fresh peaches. One we ate and two we froze. To reheat, i let defrost in the refrigerator overnight, warmed in 350 degree oven covered with foil for approx 15 min. And added fresh made whipped cream. My guests all wanted the recipe! Will make this again!

  177. Did not work. Ruined a batch of fresh peaches. Followed recipe to the T. I would not recommend this recipe.

    1. Same comment. The butter did not combine with dough or peaches. I have been baking for 70 years and this recipe will go in trash.

      1. 1 star
        Followed the directions exactly , watched the video, read all the comments. The cobbler was not good at all. The batter was horrible. Tasteless and gooey. First recipe from this website that wasn’t a hit.

        1. 1 star
          Horrible. Way, way, WAY too much sugar. Could half it and be still sweet. Too much butter, doesn’t cook as expected due to excess butter.

  178. Perfect! Just like my grandmother used to make! I had some cans of peaches that I wanted to use up. I usually use fresh fruit and wasn’t sure how canned peaches would be in a cobbler. I read through a lot of the comments before I chose this recipe. Based on what other reviewers said, I decided to double the recipe and use a 10″ x 15″ baking dish. I used two 29 oz. cans of sliced peaches (packed in fruit juice, not syrup), adding the juice from just one of them. I reduced the sugar, using 1.5 cups instead of 2 for the doubled recipe. I baked it for about 50 minutes. My family loved it! I will definitely be making it again!

    So very good! I’ve made this a few times since I got some yummy GA peaches..however, I want to make 2 more but can I freeze it before baking? Do I let the butter melt then add everything & then freeze or?

  181. 5 stars
    Very easy to make but I needed 7 peaches to get 4 cups not 5 peaches. Tastes delicious!

  182. 4 stars
    I made this using gluten free buckwheat flour and raw sugar, it turned out nice enough though the cobbler has some consistency like it’s uncooked. I would agree with others it could use less sugar. I’m happy with my first try of peach cobbler.

  183. 5 stars
    I think for the ease of this recipe and the way it came out I would give it 5 stars. It is definitely sweet and I LOVE sweets. Next time I will cut down the amount of sugar in the peaches, I used fresh peaches. I’ve never done a cobbler before and I will do this recipe again. I thought the batter was good but it is different than my experience with cobbler in the past. I’ve seen someone call this creeping cobbler in the comments. I did enjoy how easy it was to make and appreciated the tip to boil the peaches to get the skin off. I would say give this a shot and cut down the sugar if using fresh peaches.

    I gave my review on this earlier and after I gave my review, my sister let me know that she tried some I took to her house and this was her review.

    It was really good. The crust was the best I’ve had. Perfect amount of sweetness. Danny and I ate all of it.

    First time making peach cobbler. It turned out amazing! My family and I loved it! Thanks for the recipe!

  186. 3 stars
    Didn’t brown nearly enough, even with extra cooking time, and it looked pale and unappealing in the baking dish. Definitely couldn’t serve it to guests that way! But served in bowls under ice cream, you couldn’t really see it and it tasted pretty good (though I agree with other reviewers that it was way too sweet). I might try it again with half the sugar.

  187. Can I substitute brown sugar, or use half brown and half white. Please let me know what you recommend, thanks!

  188. 1 star
    This is not like any cobbler I’ve ever had. The breading is just off – really weird texture, more like a bread pudding. This recipe is also way too sweet and I didn’t even use the full amount of sugar that the recipe called for.

    1. 5 stars
      I used vegan butter and cashew milk to veganize it and it was really good. Oh based on other comments I cut the sugar in the batter in half. We enjoyed.

    This is a southern creeping cobbler so don’t expect it to be entirely cake-like. I’ve been making it since I was 12 and your recipe was spot on. My husband is texting his friends to come eat!

  191. 5 stars
    The recipe is perfect. The only problem I had with it was the size of the bowl didn’t need to be large for only three cups of ingredients. For fresh peaches, you said to cook for a few minutes. Obviously, fresh peaches need to cook longer in order to get soft/cooked. I cooked mine for at least 15 minutes. A 9×13 pan was not necessary either. The cobbler was like a very thin slab. An 8×8 pan would have created an actual cobbler that you could dig into, not scrape up with a spatula.

  192. 4 stars
    Very good! I didnt have any issues with texture at all, but it was VERY sweet. I would make again and cut back on the sugar. I also added 1 tsp of vanilla in with the milk before i make the cake part.

    Cobbler of the stars! I didn’t know something could taste so good! Lady with the elf and fairy comment…you drunk or high when you made it?

  194. I made this today and it turned out AMAZING!!! I added homemade whipped topping and it was enjoyed by all.
    Thank you for the recipe!

  195. I followed the recipe to a tee and the crust still came out very spongy, the only thing that was different is that I used a slightly smaller dish(9x11x3.5)

  196. 5 stars
    So, freaking, delicious! I used fresh peaches in the bake, about 4-5 of them. They were a little green still, but the sugar bath and the bake made the peaches both sweet and sour at the end, the taste BLEW MY MIND!!!
    Thank you for this wonderful recipe, I’ll be using it again!

    Love thus recipe! My whole family loves it! And my neighbors! I made it all summer last year fir everybody!! I get a lug of peaches every year and people can’t wait!

    Can I freeze this??

  199. 1 star
    If I could rate it 0 stars I would! I wish I read some of the comments first. This is a horrible recipe! I followed it exactly. It turned into gooey peach slop with half the batter uncooked and the peaches sitting nearly burnt on top. Additional baking time did not help! I left it overnight to see if the dessert fairies will come sprinkle it with deliciousness like the elves and the shoemaker but I suspect it won’t be salvageable. What a waste of delicious peaches! I agree with the others; do jot make this! Either the final product picture is a a different recipe or fake. Seems like the “good” comments are fake.

    1. Well, even the elves have their off days! Perhaps the dessert fairies were distracted by a fruit tart rebellion. Hang tight, I’ll confer with them and see if we can’t stage a better peach cobbler coup next time!

      1. Well, I am certainly not a fake commentator, an elf, a fairy, or any other magical being but I just made it and it was fantastic (10 stars says my son). Did you make sure your baking powder was not expired? Did you add the correct amount of salt? DId you weigh out your ingredients and NOT just scoop them out of the bag (which packs the ingredients and throws off the actual amount)? Conversions for cups, tablespoons, and teaspoons to grams for nearly any ingredient you can think of is available online these days…it’s almost like magic! Sorry to hear about your lost peaches, but there could be any number of reasons your cobbler didn’t come together, but the problem is NOT the recipe..I am an independent person and novice baker that came across this recipe searching online for something to make with all the peaches my kid picked at a local orchard on a day camp field trip.

    2. I have been making this exact recipe for over 40 years and cannot imagine how that happened. It has NEVER done that to me. The recipe is great. I’m wondering if you didn’t strain enough of the peach juice out of your peaches. That would definitely cause your problem.

  200. 5 stars
    Delicious and easy. I added some vanilla to the peaches. It cooked a bit faster in my oven (30 min).

  201. 5 stars
    This is my first attempt at making peach cobbler and I’m so glad I found this recipe. I used 8 fresh peaches that I had on hand. I added extra vanilla and cinnamon to them, alone they were delicious! I prepped them a day before to cut down on my tasks today. I added my cinnamon in my batter and used 1/2 the salt the recipe called for. The cobbler was perfection

  202. 4 stars
    I used necatarines with the skin on. Added a bit of water when softening them in the saucepan. It rose A LOT. A bit of dough Glooped over the sides of the pan, so put a baking sheet underneath. Was not the prettiest cobbler in the world, but tasted REALLY delicious. Will omit the salt next time. Not needed. I did use salted butter however.

  203. 5 stars
    Made this tonight for Father’s Day dessert. I substituted coconut oil for the butter and coconut milk for the milk because my husband has a dairy allergy. Everyone loved it. We will be using this recipe in the future.

  204. 5 stars
    This recipe worked out great! Everybody loved it! I kept the skin on the peaches because even after a few days of sitting in the fruit bowl, they were not ripe, and I did the boiling water/ice method, but could not get the skin off easily. I went to the next step of slicing and cooking the slices with sugar in the sauce pan. I followed the recipe and it was fantastic, because the baking helped cook the unripe peaches into soft deliciousness!

  205. Can one use other fruit, such as apples, with this recipe? Also, am I likely to be driven into exile if I were to use oil instead of butter?

    1. I cannot imagine it tasting like a pancake? But I guess we are all different. I’ve been making this recipe for over e- years and it’s always perfect.

  206. 5 stars
    I made this recipe x4 yesterday for my friend’s birthday party. Modified it slightly: added cardamom with the cinnamon, & I used 1/3 of the sugar with the peaches (which were canned in concentrated pear juice). I kept the sugar as stated in the recipe for the cobbler, & I am so glad about that.

    The peach cobbler turned out absolutely delectable. Buttery, perfectly browned & crispy around the edges, with just enough sugar to accentuate the juicy, flavorful peaches. I had a little leftover cobbler, a pint of mealy underripe blueberries & a handful of leftover maraschino cherries, & I mixed them together… da*n. So. Freaking. Yummy!

    My friend has been craving peach cobbler, and Happy Birthday to her!
    Thank you for sharing this recipe. It’s now my go-to for making any kind of fruit cobbler.

    This has 4.9 stars for good reason. I gave it to my pastry chef sister and said to trust me. She initially didn’t think it was going to work out and then was floored by the result. I love this recipe, everyone loves the cobbler, it’s amazing and my favorite and thank you!

    I made this using self rise flour because I had no baking powder, so no salt either. canned peaches and almost all juice. Put cinnamon in batter. Baked until golden! Looks delicious! My hubby going to love it!

    This is flawless. I’m a terrible baker and this recipe is super easy and incredibly delicious. Sometimes I add a little bit of ground almonds, like 1/2 a cup, for the extra nutrition and just because I like the peach-almond combo. Thank you for sharing this recipe!!! xox

    A perfect recipe! I used fresh peaches, and I followed all of the directions to the letter. This was a great recipe to share with my daughter, who helped me to make it. It’s very easy to follow and the end result is something both kids and adults would readily look forward to. So delicious and yet so incredibly simple! I will definitely be making this one again, maybe with some different fruit just to change things up. Either way, truly a winner of a recipe!

  211. this is a note to the admin. i believe that you are skewing these comments from people to make it look like this recipe is good. i believe that there are probably just as many people writing in bad comments but you are not approving all the bad ones. where’s my comments? i want to let you know i wasted some good peaches like other people trying your recipe. your recipe can’t be good if half the people trying it don’t get good results. as a matter of fact i don’t believe the people saying this recipe turned out good for them. you should remove this recipe online because you’re going to end up with a lot of people really mad at you for publishing it. even if people lower the sugar content for example it shouldn’t change the recipe that much. i’ve lowered the sugar on many a recipe and still got good results. when i mixed up the ingredients it was like a paste. i thought it should be like a biscuit dough. but i spooned it on the butter just as you said to. nothing was wrong with my leaven as it was fresh. my dear i have baked my whole life and i can tell you if you are getting mixed reviews with your recipe with many people saying it has come out bad with all the same characteristics then there’s something wrong with it. i know you won’t publish this comment but i wanted to let you know how i felt. people would have got better results putting their peaches on the bottom and topping it off with canned biscuits. thank you.

    This was amazing. I made it Gluten free & dairy free, basia Vegan GF version & it was great! Thank you!

  213. Made this recipe using fresh peaches. Followed the recipe except added about 2 teaspoons of corn starch to the peaches. Baked in a glass dish 13×9 for 40 minutes and it came out perfectly.

    I expected a biscuit type batter. The batter is very thin. I ended up baking it until it was firm and a toothpick came out clean (about an hour and 15 minutes). It is tasty, just not what I think of when I think of traditional cobbler.

  215. I made the peach cobbler the other night and it tasted ok. I love peach cobbler and next time I make it I will add some nutmeg and cinnamon in the batter instead of sprinkling on top. Thanks for sharing

  216. 4 stars
    This recipe is great but needs some clarification. If using canned peaches, do NOT use all the juice, way too much liquid. I only used some juice and that was still too much, but came out awesome with a lot of extra baking time. Was a huge hit!
    Personally I’d recommend some vanilla in the batter along with Cinnamon, and be really heavy with Cinnamon on top, love the stuff.
    I’m going to try to double the recipe because it was pretty thin overall in a 9×13 pan.

  217. I only have a gallon of jarred peach halves in light syrup at this time. I understand I have to slice the peaches. How much of the syrup/juice should I use?

  218. 5 stars
    Simple to make and now is my go to dessert for family dinner get togethers. I changed it up a few times with the use of other fruits and berries. Husbands favorite was blue berries.

    Wow! I have never made or tried peach cobbler before and this recipe has converted me into a cobbler fanatic. I followed the recipe exact but used jarred peaches and apricots and it was simply divine! My parents and I stood around the kitchen bench spooning it and chasing it with vanilla icecream. We couldn’t stop mmming and ahhhing until it was finished. Will double the recipe next time! Bravo!!!

    Quick and easy recipe that tasted yummy! I used jar peaches and added a little cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla to the batter. Baked for 35 minutes and served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. My family loved it. Thank you for sharing your recipes!

    Made as directed using fresh peaches. Took to mother’s day brunch. Huge it. Will make again! Might try it with berries as well.

  224. No where in this recipe does it say to drain the canned peaches. It says Canned Peaches & JUICE. But I believe that is why it turned out like wet dough. Yuck…Had to throw it away

  225. Made this to the letter, however the dough in the middle is still that…dough after over an hour of cooking at 350*. So upset to have lost so many peaches to something we can’t eat. I have placed it back in the oven at 450 with aluminum foil around the edge in the last ditch effort the center will cook and not be doughy. I did use canned peaches in heavy syrup. I did not use fresh peaches. Still sick about it. I don’t think this extra bake time is going to do a darn thing to help.

  226. 5 stars
    Lauren thank you! I really wanted to make something yummy for my teacher and classmates today since it is teacher appreciation week. Luckily your recipe fell into my lap! I did kind of accidentally adjust a few things just because I was rushing and short on time. I used a standard pie dish for this recipe (its all we had). I also used 5 tbs of butter, not 6. My peaches were the jarred yellow slices from trader joes (I had to cut them some more as they came in halves) but I still used the syrup from them as is. This was great as I could skip step 1 & 2. I also only used about 1/2 cup of sugar for the batter because I was worried about my professors sugar intake.

    Peach Cobbler is my favorite dessert, and this is like the “Peach Cobbler with Crazy Crust” my mom used to make!

    The peach cobbler recipe is excellent! I’ve made it 4 times and my family loves it. Today will be #5. In our home it’s served with blue bell homemade vanilla ice cream. Thank you for making things so easy, I use both fresh and during winter months canned peaches

    I just love love this recipe I use jarred peaches from Costco and it comes out fabulous every time! Can you prepare this ahead and bake later? Thinking I’d like to serve it warm with ice cream and prefer not to microwave it.

  234. This recipe SLAPPED! I’ve NEVER done a receipt review, but I had to tell you that this was great & thank you. I personally changed out the peaches to nectarines just because that’s what was available. I also cut, peeled, and let them sit in the sugar mix overnight and added 1-2 Tbsps of corn starch to thicken the sauce/syrup before I put it in the 9×13. Even with those few differences, I only manage to taste a small piece before it was served and devoured by everyone. So again, thank you! I will be using this recipe again.

  235. I followed this recipe to the (T) and my peach cobbler turned out nasty as heck….. tryn to figure out why that is?

    1. So did mine…doughy even after an hour extra of cooking…the middle was still wet dough…yuck.

    2. i wish i had tried another recipe that was a coffee cake recipe rather than this one. too many ones that commented that their cobbler ended up like a yucky raw piece of dough. i am going to try to salvage the peaches. i used canned peaches in lite syrup as recipe states not to drain and to use juice.

    3. its going on now for 2 hours baking and my cobbler is still nothing but yucky uncooked dough. the peaches are still on the top. i did use canned peaches and dumped them on the top without draining them. i wish i had read the reviews before trying this recipe. now going on over 2 hours and i will continue baking but if it gets to 3 hrs i’m taking out of the oven. i don’t care about wasting the flour and stuff. but i just wasted some good peaches making this recipe and i consider myself a good cook.

  236. 3 stars
    Flavor was okay although a bit salty, I think the salt is not needed if using salted butter. However the main issue is even though I drained the cans of peaches, it was very doughy..and I cooked it for a extra half hour, I’m putting it back in the oven for longer because still doughy.. I really think though the issue is, the batter needs to be on top at least for my personal liking.. The juices sink to the bottom, so the dough is never able to crisp up. But maybe some people like it doughy like this! Just not for me I guess.

  237. 5 stars
    So good! Easy to make! Everyone at church loved it! This is the second time I’ve made it and will definitely make it again!

  238. This recipe is crap. Peaches stayed on top. Doughy, sludgey, plastery waste of time and ingredients. My oven must be in need of service. I even tried cooking it for an extra 15 minutes. My dough mixture looked a lot thicker than yours after mixing in the milk. I followed your instructions down to the exact size pan and have read over the instructions half a dozen times to make sure I didn’t miss anything. Oh well.

    1. Mine too and I have a new oven I’ve had just 6 months…and believe me it’s not your oven. This recipe has issues.

    I hadn’t made a cobbler in a very long time and this recipe is so simple and easy and was delicious.

  240. Excellent – I used my home canned peaches 🍑 from our abundantly producing single peach tree in backyard 😀 42 jars last season 👍
    Fabulous fast and simple recipe – I even substituted almond flour for a gluten free guest – great as well!

    just made this with some peaches I found in the freezer from 2 summers ago. Still good and sealed. made it with 1 to 1 baking flour GF. Used the brown sugar Swerve I use for all my baking. Added fresh nutmeg. Delicious. Will make again. T.Y.

    The recipe is wonderful! Its in the oven right now! The only thing missing for me was vanilla so I mixed a good dash into the milk before adding to the flour mixture. It smells absolutely great!

  243. Not sure if I did something wrong but I followed the recipe to a tee & it was too moist for my preference. Not what I was hoping for.

  244. 5 stars
    The recipe was what I was looking for, but I thought it might be too sweet for me. I made the following adjustments:

    Coconut oil instead of butter
    Reduced the sugar from 1 cup to 3/4 cup
    Added 1/4 cup almond flour
    Used evaporated milk instead of milk
    Added some vanilla
    Added some fresh grated nutmeg with the cinnamon

    I used a jar of Texas hill country peaches we picked up on vacation (wow they were good).

    It came out delicious. I think I should’ve added a little extra salt to make up for not using salted butter, but other than that tiny additional tweak, this is exactly what I was looking for.

    I have used this recipe many times and my peach cobbler always turns out great. I even used this recipe for a fresh strawberry cobbler and it was pretty tasty.
