This peach cobbler makes the perfect quick and easy dessert that I turn to again and again. I make it often in the summer with fresh Georgia peaches from my local farmer’s market. But one thing that makes this dessert such a winner is the fact that it’s just as delicious made in cooler months with frozen or canned peaches too.

It’s no secret that cobblers make a favorite dessert. I grew up watching my mama and grandmother make them often for family suppers. While Grandmother’s Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler includes a double crust and dumplings and is absolutely divine, it does take a bit of time to make. While I still love to make that recipe sometimes, I make this Easy Peach Cobbler much more often. Just six simple ingredients, so easy to make even for a last minute dessert and everyone always loves it! It’s one of our family favorites!

Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe

As I mentioned, you can use fresh peaches, canned peaches or frozen peaches that you have thawed in this recipe, making it even easier to make anytime of the year!

Use Fresh, Canned or Frozen Peaches

Fresh Peaches

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.

Canned Peaches

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

Frozen Peaches

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

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!

Most likely these are ingredients that you already have on hand and can make this to serve for dessert tonight! And if you have strawberries on hand or want to try later, my Strawberry Cobbler is an out of this world favorite too!


You’ll just need six ingredients:

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.

Once your cobbler is done, remove from the oven and serve warm.

Top warm cobbler with vanilla ice cream if desired. It takes this scrumptious dessert over the top!

Here’s a friendly bit of advice – once you make this cobbler, be ready to make it again as it’s sure to be popular and get requests often.

How to Store Peach Cobbler

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

To reheat in oven, cover with foil and reheat until heated throughout, about 20 minutes.

You can also easily reheat until warm in the microwave in a microwave safe container.

  • Prep. Add butter to a 9×13 baking dish and place into the oven as it preheats to 375º F. 
  • Sweetened fresh peaches. Meanwhile, add 1/2 cup of the sugar to the peaches in a medium bowl and allow to sit while mixing the peach cobbler crust batter.

  • Bake. Bake until the cobbler is golden brown, about 35 minutes. Serve warm. 



If fresh peaches are not available, use 2 (16-ounce) cans of peaches, along with their juice.

  1. 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?

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

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

    2. 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.

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

    2. I just made this using fresh apricots from our tree. I also reduced the amount of sugar in the batter. Delicious. My, oh my.

  2. Always enjoy the quick cobblers and will have to try the peach. May I make a suggestion, a teaspoon of cinnamon added. I always love cinnamon with my fruit pies/cobblers.

  3. Would be nice to know how much butter to use. “add your butter” is NOT a quantity.

    1. I’m sorry you missed this, Patricia, but the first ingredient in the recipe is 1/2 cup butter. I hope you enjoy the cobbler.

  4. I am concerned with the nutrition info provided. You have sodium as 81 mg. I have heart failure snd very restricted on sodium. I was so excited that I could enjoy this recipe. My sister questioned the sodium number so I looked everything up. It’s actually 190 mg per serving.big difference.

    1. Linda, I can understand you have to be careful with your dietary restrictions. I refigured this nutrition information on this recipe. I got the same amount as listed when I divided everything by the 12 servings. You can always use unsalted butter to reduce the sodium even further.

    1. Yes, Darlene, you could substitute fresh plums for the peaches. Hope you enjoy!
