Peach Cobbler Recipe – A Family Favorite

Peach cobbler is on my summertime favorites. Every summer growing up, my mom, grandma June, and I would pile into the car and drive a few miles up into Michigan to buy fresh peaches from our favorite orchard. I loved walking into the old barn where they displayed all the fruits and vegetables. It always smelled so delicious. Whenever I smell peaches I think of our trips up to that orchard. 

When we would return home with our glorious bounty of fruit, my mom would make peach cobbler. Oh, how I love that peach cobbler. I don’t even need a plate to eat it– I would (and still do) just grab a fork and eat it straight out of the baking dish. Why dirty a perfectly good plate? Plus, it’s my way of being more “green”.

Peach Cobbler Recipe

 A couple weekends ago my mother-in-law brought us peaches from a farm stand, so naturally I had to make peach cobbler. And, naturally, I’m going to share the recipe with you. Sharing is caring, you know.


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Peel and cut up the peaches. (Some people have told me they didn’t peel the peaches and the recipe turned out fine, so peeling is up to you.)  Place the peaches in a greased, 2-2.5 quart baking dish.

Add 1/4 – 1/2 cup sugar, depending on the sweetness of the peaches. Stir and set aside.

Cream 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup sugar. I love using my mixer with this special paddle to cream ingredients.

peach cobbler topping

If you don’t have self-rising flour on hand, you’ll need to mix together 1 cup all purpose flour, 1 1/4 tsp. baking powder, and 1/8 tsp. salt in a separate bowl. (I’ve had these mixing bowls for years, and I love them.)

If you have self-rising flour, use one cup instead of having to make the all purpose flour-baking power-salt mixture.

peach cobbler instructions

Add self-rising flour OR flour mixture.

how to make peach cobbler

Add 1 egg and 1 tsp. vanilla extract. Blend well.

Put topping mixture on top of peaches. It doesn’t have to be perfect because it will melt in the oven.

If your peach cobbler comes out too mushy or runny it means that your peaches may have been too ripe, producing extra juices which caused the topping to get mushy.

I’ve also found that the topping can turn out somewhat mushy if the topping ingredients are old.

  29. Stephanie says:

    I made this cobbler for my family and it did not last the week. Thank you for a delicious recipe. I had a favorite, go-to recipe but lost it in a recent move. I had never made a pastry top before and yours was so easy and delicious. Thank you again I have found a new peach cobbler.

  30. Kentuckylady717 says:

    Love peach cobbler, you can also use BISQUICK….works great…
    No Christy , cake flour is not called self-rising flour . I have never used it in a recipe like this, but I suppose you could…..I love bisquick, and use it in many recipes……so easy to use….and makes great biscuits too…..

  31. Presidents of the United States of America!!

  32. Christy Spurlock says:

    I just found your blog and your recipe for Peach Cobbler. Just got home from the farmer’s market with peaches and am now eating Peach Cobbler. Truly the best recipe I’ve ever had that I will save and make again. Love your blog.

  33. I made this today and it was a dud. I don’t know what I did wrong. I used 2 fresh white and 2 fresh yellow peaches. I left the peel on as it didn’t say to peel them. The top of the cobbler got a great golden crust. The inside……… Yuck. It was a watery gooey mess. I left the cobbler baking for an hour and it seemed as though the inside was still raw. The peaches were still firm and I cut them pretty skinny. It tasted ok but looked gross.

    1. Sorry it didn’t turn out well for you. You can peel the peaches or leave the skin on– I’ve had people do both and it turned out fine both ways. Your peaches may have been too ripe, producing extra juices which caused the topping to get mushy. I also found that the topping can turn out somewhat mushy if the topping ingredients are old. Hope this helps and you’ll try it again!

  34. lillian mittner says:

    can fresh peaches that have been frozen and thawed be used

  35. stupid question in what reference is a 2 qt baking dis to a 9×13 pan? should I double recipe or what?

  36. I just put this in the oven and it already smells delicious!! One question though-the batter didn’t completely cover the peaches. Is that ok? In your picture it was completely covered but there just wasn’t enough batter to cover mine. Just wondering because it still looks good. Can’t wait to taste it!!!!!

    1. Yeah it should melt and cover most of the peaches. If you’re using a dish similar in size to what I used it should cover all the peaches. Next time try putting the batter on thinner rather than thicker. Hope it turned out well!

  37. I am looking for a peach cobbler to make for a friend who is diabetic. I am going to try this using Splenda. Hoping it turns out very well.

  38. Hands down the BEST cobbler I’ve had. I would love to try this using other fruits. It’s perfectly crispy on the top and gooey at the center.. I had cobblers that turn into a cake-like texture and this definitely avoids that. 5 stars!

  39. Really good! I. Used the whole half cup of sugar for the peaches since they were tart and cut the sugar in the topping by 1/4 cup. It was still a bit too sweet for me especially since we like to enjoy ours with a side of vanilla ice cream 😉 so I might cut the sugar in the batter by a whole 1/2 cup next time.

  40. Made this tonight it is so good!!! Thanks for the recipe

  41. Can you use can peaches or peaches in frozen section of grocery store?

  42. Can canned peached with the syrup drained by used without it getting mushy? It looks so pretty!

  43. I grew up in Elkhart and live in Anderson and can relate to the trips to Michigan to fruit stands and self picks. One can not buy peaches in a grocery! Thanks for the post, cute blog. I am painting my half bath mint green.

  44. Excellent! I used frozen peaches that were thawed and drained since it’s not peach season yet. Everyone loved it and very easy to make!

  45. Made this today and oh my goodness!!! My husband said it should be illegal! It’s amazing!

  46. I made the peach cobbler with all purpose Gluten Free flour and it was wonderful!

    Thanks 🙂

  47. Made this day for the 4th of July. It’s amazing!!! Crust is like crunchy edges on pound cake you always want to pinch off and eat put on top of peaches! For a glass 9.13 pyrex, I doubled the recipe and cooked it closer to 40 minutes. For last 6 minutes I covered it with foil to keep crust from getting too brown. Crust did bubble during cooking but bubbles diminish once taken out of the oven. We loved it!

  48. Martha Hodge says:

    This is fantastic!! I have never reviewed a recipe online before. My son just graduated college and has returned home and decided to try this recipe with some peaches that were given to us. I’m almost embarrassed to say that I have made this 3 times in 2 weeks with plans to make it again tonight – considering there are only 2 of us in the home, that says something. Twice I scattered a few blueberries I had on hand on top of the peaches and the third time, I added a few blackberries. This cobbler couldn’t be easier and tastes great. Thank you for sharing!

  49. Kathy Ryan says:

    I made this cobbler last night for Family Dinner. You are correct-it IS the most amazing! I made a sound with every bite! It did double the amount of peaches I used. Thank you,

  50. Ingrid Durham says:

    Sorry to say, but the topping on this cobbler was WAY to sweet, even my teenager thought so. It was like candy. If I were to make it again I would use half the sugar in the topping.

  51. The top tastes like sugar cookie. Very sweet and rich. I ended up baking mine for 45 minutes, and after finding a runny mess under a crisp shell, turned the heat down to 300 degrees and baked another 20 minutes. It turned out perfectly. Very yummy-thanks for a great recipe!

    1. I should also note that I doubled the recipe (adding an additional cup of peaches) and baked it in a 9×13 dish.

  52. Our family loved this cobbler. We used fresh peaches off our tree and added 1 cup fresh raspberries, the filling with sugar cookie crust was excellent. Topped with ice cream. I have never cared for peach cobbler till now.

  53. Bridget Hemmeline says:

    This has become my go to cobbler recipe. My family loves this!! I made blackberry cobbler yesterday.
    I make mine in a cake pan, the dough is a little thinner and gets crispy, my family likes it that way. I do cook mine about 10 min longer.
    Great recipe, thank you!!

    1. Bridget Hemmeline says:

      Also, it calls for 1/4 – 1/2 cup of sugar sprinkled on top of the fruit. I did not do that, I just sprinkled a pinch over the fruit. I didn’t want it to end up to sweet.

  54. Would this work with canned peaches as well? Looks so delish!

  55. Your peach cobbler looks amazing! Thanks for sharing at Work it Wednesday!

  56. Made this for my husband, and it was completely wonderful. His words: “This is the textbook definition of ‘nailed it’.”
    Great recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  57. Thanks so much for sharing this at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. We love having you. Pinning.

  58. Peach cobbler is just the best summer dessert! Thanks for linkin’ up with What’s Cookin’ Wednesday!

  59. Yum!! Looks delicious! Thanks so much for sharing at Merry Monday!

  60. This is THE best peach cobbler recipe we’ve ever tried!!!! Thank you so much! It’s a new family favorite!!

  61. Christina says:

    This was my first time making peach cobbler. I found this recipe on pinterest. It looked easy so I tried it. This was exactly the peach cobbler I didn’t even know I was looking for!!! Just the right amount of everything. The topping was a little crunchy/buttery and sweet. My husband and I loved this!! Will definitely be making this again.

  62. How many servings does this make? It sounds delicious! Me and my sister always used to make peach cobbler together 🙂

  63. This is my husband’s favorite cobbler. I use frozen peaches and it turns out fine. Thank you for sharing!

  64. How catastrophic would it be if I bake this recipe tonight and then warm it in the oven and serve it tomorrow? 🙂

  65. Thanks for the recipe! It was great with the nectarines I had.

  66. Thank you, I have recently been searching for info approximately this subject for ages and yours is the greatest I’ve found out so far. But, what in regards to the conclusion? Are you sure about the supply?

  67. Made this today and it turned out great! My son said it deserves five stars! The only difference I did was I sprinkled cinnamon over the peaches, but everything else was the same. Thank you for a great recipe!?

  68. This was A great recipe!!! Thank you!! It was A hit!

  69. The web page design is actually great, the content articles is at simple fact wonderful

  70. I nearly didn’t make this today because I always check comments first to see if the recipe worked, if it needed tweaks, how it tasted etc and all I found were “sounds good” “have to try this soon” “reminds me of what mom/grandma made”….FINALLY I found a couple comments from people who actually took the time to make it so I gave it a try. All I had were canned peaches (from a store, my home canned ran out months ago) so what I did was use brown sugar in the peaches but I also added 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and maybe 1/4 cup of the juice and poured that over the peaches. Made the batter as per the recipe and all I can say is wow…this is soo good! I can see myself making this again and again with other fruit too!
