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.

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!

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 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.

  • 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. 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. 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.
