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!


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 the oven preheats.
  • 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.

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.

  • Add butter to a 9×13 baking dish and place into the oven as it preheats to 375º F. 
  • 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. 
  • Whisk together the remaining sugar, the self-rising flour, the milk, and the vanilla. Pour this batter on top of the melted butter and then top with the peaches and their juice. Do not stir. 
  • 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. Hi Lisa,
      I use fresh or canned in the recipe, but if you only have frozen peaches, just let them thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Hope you enjoy the cobbler- it delicious! Thanks!

  1. WOW, that really turned out AWESOMELY! (Did I spell that right? lol) Anyway, I couldn’t come up with 5 cups of peaches, but did make it anyway, with 4. Had bought two organic peaches from my Harris Teeter grocery store, and needed to eat them, or use them….I saw this recipe, and the decision was firmly planted. And besides that, I was going through last years survival food, to either eat, or throw away, (or give to daughter, who moved away, and comes over just to take whatever I can give her, which seems like most of the time!) and found a can of them (unfortunately not organic, but whose fussin with a recipe like this one??
    So, I made the recipe with one can, and two real peaches, and a small jar I found of them (so altogether, only made 4 cups)
    Gee, I need some more peaches in the house, NOW! I know I’m gonna eat that whole cobbler, by myself, it’s so delicious, and I’m going to just HAVE to make another one. My husband is probably gonna
    say, it’s too sweet. (It’s not “too” sweet to me, but it is sweet!) I was thinkin’ next time, to lower sugar amount next time, anyway. But wait, I only had 4 cups of peaches, and I did TRY to bring the amount down below a whole cup. But I’m ramblin….But I hope my husband will try it. He’s already told me, with hundreds of blueberries on the 2 huge bushes outside, that IF I don’t make him a blueberry cobbler, that I’m going to be in…he’s just being funny, but I’m sure he’s telling me, he really wants one….bad! He doesn’t like much sweets, so I told him I was practicing with the peach cobbler, and I had to use some peaches up too, but Robyn, I was wondering, would any of measurements be different, if I used the same recipe, but used blueberries instead? I will look have to look and see if you have a cobbler recipe using blueberries on your site here, too….
    Now, for this recipe, it WAS very EASY to make! As for the taste, it was “out of this world” (sprinkle some cinnamon, and add some whipped cream, and OMG a hundred times)! …A little on the sweet side, but everyone should know, that you can easily adjust that! Enough of the pro’s, on to the con: the edges are kina chewy, BUT it just might have been something that I did, or maybe my self risin’ flour was kinda old (never can find a recipe that uses that! lol)…..but that’s the only thing I found I didn’t care for…but who cares? There’s a whole cobbler to eat!
    P.S. Love the site, and many recipes! I think this is my very first comment on this site, but I couldn’t pass up saying something about this delicious desert! Beside OMG…lol

    1. Hi Joan!
      I just loved reading your comment! And I’m so glad to have you here! Your note made me smile! 🙂
      A couple of things I noticed that might help you love the cobbler even more the next time you make it…I know you said you only had 4 cups peaches, so that may have made the cobbler sweeter when using the recipe’s amount of sugar. Also, it’s true when your flour or baking ingredients aren’t fresh, they sometimes don’t reach their full potential I’ll say. And with the full amount of peaches from the recipe, the juices should help make the crust even better!
      I love that you saw the recipe and just made it right then! And enjoyed eating it soon after! 😉 That’s the good thing about cobblers…especially this one…they are simple yet absolutely delicious! I really hope your husband likes it too when you make it for him!
      Since he wants a Blueberry Cobbler, I’ve attached my recipe for it. It is also a very delicious favorite of ours and so many who have tried it!
      Thanks so much for your kind words! So happy to talk to you! xo

  2. Hi, your recipe for peach cobbler came upon my feed (ggogle pixel2) at work last week. I read the recipe and thought this is pretty simple and I will give it a try. I could not get it out of my mind and decided to try it last Friday. Let me just tell you…It was absolutely delicious. My family loved it. I just made a tweak by adding some lime zest to the liquid mixture and instead of topping with ice cream, I used a cream cheese frosting and added a bit of lime juice, and zest along with heavy cream. It was divine.

  3. Hi Robyn, this is my 5th time making your cobbler. Made it for work, making it for work again tomorrow and an extra one for my family. Will be featuring it on my blog soon and will give you all the credit you richly deserve. Thanks again

    1. I’m so happy you and your family & friends enjoy the cobbler, Sharnette! That would be so sweet of you to link to my recipe when you put your pictures up on your blog! Thanks so much! Have a great summer! xo

  4. I made this cobbler and it was delicious. It’s very easy. I have other cobbler recipes and none quite this easy, fast and tasty. What I added was cinnamon to the sugar mixture. This recipe is a winner.

  5. Love, love this cobbler. I used fresh peaches, a touch of cinnamon and my guests were in heaven. Question: since I live alone and would like to make this for myself, can I freeze a portion for later? Thanks

    1. Hi Catherine,
      I’m so glad you loved it! Isn’t it just amazing?! Yes, you can absolutely freeze a portion of the peach cobbler for up to 3 months. Then, just thaw in the refrigerator overnight and enjoy! xo

  6. I brought some fresh peaches back from Georgia my home state my grandkids wanted to see if they really do taste better they do after the grandkids ate their fill of peaches i made this cobbler we all enjoyed it so very much so when my peach tree has lots of peaches i will freeze some just for this cobbler it will be extra good in the cold winters here in Ohio thanks this recipe is better and easier than the one i misplaced so thanks so very much

  7. Please help. I used an 8 by 8 baking pan for my peach cobbler. With 1 cup of flour. The crust was very thick. I need to cut back on my flour for this size pan. Can you please tell me how much I should use and does the milk stay at 1 cup also. I’m using 2 cups of fresh peaches. Thank you very much.

  8. Have you ever posted this recipe before? Trying to track down one I found back in 2009. That was the BEST I ever had. Please let me know!

  9. Although, i haven’t made this cobbler yet, i can’t wait, it sounds delicious!
    Like another reviewer i will add some cinnamon to mine. Also, can nutmeg be added to the recipe?

  10. Hi! I want to make your peach cobbler with frozen peaches but am wondering if they will make juice or do I need to add something? Love the recipe…is close to the recipe my grandma used to make

  11. Your recipe looks absolutely delicious and super easy ! Which is what I’m going for (: My boyfriend was just in an accident and they finally sent him home after 3 days and he has always wanted me to make him peach cobbler, I think to go visit him with your recipe and some ice cream would be perfect. I just have a question, if I use canned peaches, I don’t need to add the sugar ?

    1. Desiree,
      So sorry about your boyfriend’s accident. Hope he has a speedy recovery. What a neat idea to make peach cobbler for him. If you use canned peaches, you will need to follow the recipe the same as if using fresh peaches. I write in the post about using canned peaches. You will need to add the amount of sugar in the recipe. Hope this helps and hope he enjoys the peach cobbler and ice cream! xo

      1. Thank you very much <3 Alrighty one more question hehe, should I use salted or unsalted butter ? Thank you !

  12. Good morning, Robyn: Your peach cobbler looks delicious! I have Diabetes II and was wondering if I could replace the sugar ingredient with Stevia/Organic Stevia instead? It works in a lot of recipes, but just wasn’t sure about this one…? Thank you for your thoughts – Happy 4th!!

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

      1. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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 !

  18. 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.

  19. 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?

    1. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. 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?
