This peach cobbler makes the perfect quick and easy dessert that I turn to again and again. I love that I can make it using fresh peaches at the peak of peach season and that I can also use canned or frozen peaches just as easily.

My Grandmother’s Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler includes a double crust and dumplings and is absolutely divine, but does take a bit of time to make. While I still love to make her recipe, I have found myself turning to what Mama would call her “emergency peach cobbler recipe”. In other words, she had to have a dessert that she could throw together in no time that everyone absolutely loved. And friends, it is absolutely amazing.

How to Make Easy Peach Cobbler

Making this peach cobbler is an absolute cinch! You’ll only need six ingredients and about five minutes hands on time to make this delectable dessert!

Ingredients

You’ll just need six ingredients:

  • peaches
  • sugar
  • self-rising flour
  • milk
  • butter
  • vanilla extract

That’s it. That’ll all it takes! Most likely these are ingredients that you already have on hand and can make this to serve for dessert tonight!

Step-by-Step Instructions

  • Add your butter to a 9 x 13 baking dish and allow it to melt in the oven as you preheat the oven.
  • If using fresh peaches, peel the peaches and slice. Add 1/2 cup sugar to your peaches in a large bowl. This will allow them to sweeten even more and make them even juicier for the cobbler.
  • Whisk together the self-rising flour, the rest of your sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until well combined. If you do not have self-rising flour on hand, you can easily make it at home. [Resource: How to Make Self-Rising Flour]
  • Once the butter has melted in the baking dish, remove it from the oven and pour the batter on top of the butter in the baking dish. Do not stir.
  • Pour in your peaches (and their juices) on top of the batter. Again, do not stir to combine.
  • Bake until golden brown and set, about 35 minutes to 40 minutes.

Then, remove from the oven and serve warm.

Be warned though. Once you make this peach cobbler and serve it one time, you’ll need to be stocked for the rest of the summer to make this delicious treat!

Everyone will request it for the rest of the summer!

How to Store Peach Cobbler

Store any leftover peach cobbler covered, in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.

To reheat, cover with foil and reheat in the oven until heated throughout, about 20 minutes. You can also easily reheat in the microwave.

How Many Fresh Peaches are in a Cup

It takes 1 1/2 medium fresh peaches to equal 1 cup of sliced peaches. 

This peach cobbler recipe uses 4 cups of sliced peaches, meaning you’ll need 6 medium fresh peaches.

If you are using canned peaches, you can substitute with 2 (16-ounce) cans of peaches, with their juices

If you are using frozen peaches, allow the frozen peaches to thaw and then proceed with the recipe as written.

Options You May Enjoy!

Here are a few options for your cobbler that you may also enjoy!

  • With Ice Cream – Top your cobbler with vanilla ice cream for an over the top dessert!
  • Cinnamon sugar – Add a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar to the top of your cobbler before you pop it into the oven to bake. It will smell and taste amazing!

My grandmother who was born in 1898, made that for years, it was called Poor Man’s pie cause you only had to have a few ingredients.

Yes adding a teaspoon of cinnamon is super good. I enjoy cinnamon with any of my fruit pies. Try it with strawberries or blueberries too. Really any fruit you’d like to try.

So delish! Topped with vanilla bean ice cream..so darn good. I would not change a thing.

Thanks so much, Alayah!

We have stopped eating refined sugar so substitute honey in place of sugar. 1/2 cup honey for 1 cup sugar. I shared some with my neighbor she loved it and wants the recipe.

Thanks for the tip, Nancy. I’m so happy the honey substitute worked so well for you. Enjoy! xo

I tried this recipe first time today for a pot luck gathering and everyone loved it! Thanks a lot for sharing this! I absolutely love your recipes, they are so simple and easy to follow.

I’m so happy you love this and other recipes I share, Reeba. Thank you.

Hi Robyn
What about a GF version of this delicious cobbler?
If I substitute GF flour are there any additional ingredients that are required since GF flour doesn’t rise ?
Merci, Lise

Lise, you can make your own GF self-rising flour. Follow my recipe on How to Make Self-Rising Flour. Be sure to use gluten-free baking powder.

Looks delish, your recipe is 1 1/2 cups flour so to make the self rising have to add more baking
powder because this is per 1 cup? thank you for the wonderful looking easy recipe !

You will need to make adjustments for the salt and baking powder for the extra 1/2 cup flour, Susie!

Great, easy recipe. I’m new to the world of self-rising flour and I’m a fan.
I added about a teaspoon of cinnamon to the peach/sugar combo and we really liked the added depth of flavor.

Thank you, Sally. I’m glad you liked the cobbler. xo

I have all the ingredients except vanilla extract. Going to try this recipe tonight. Curious. Does the cobbler batter make both the crust and the top?

Mitchell, you won’t have a definite crust like you would if using a regular rolled pie crust but there will be crust on the top and bottom and pieces throughout the cobbler. I hope you enjoy it.

I was out of peaches so I made this with nectarine and it tasted amazing!

Thanks, Donna. I will have to try that.

Another great recipe! I blanched the peaches so that the skins would be easier to remove. We had big peaches so I probably should have used fewer peaches. Because of too many peaches, I had trouble getting it to brown. I am going to try again with fewer peaches. But it still tasted amazing.

I have made this before and it is delicious. I want to make it with frozen peaches and I am wondering if I drain off the juice after thawing?

I would thaw peaches in the refrigerator overnight and use them in the recipe with their juice, Martha.

Made this today with canned peaches.i did not use juice.in the oven now.will let you know how it turns out

Could you bake it in a smaller pan or double the recipe and still have the same result ?

Natalie, as long as you have the same ratio of ingredients as in the recipe, you should have the same results if you make a smaller cobbler or a larger one.

When using canned peaches. Do you still need to use the sugar?

I add the same amount of sugar as the recipe when using canned peaches, Eva.
