I love peaches as this fruit can only be fully enjoyed during the season. Finding peaches out of season is just about impossible and it is always a fail in taste and texture! Because of this you truly appreciate this stone fruit, full of juicy sweetness with a flavour like no other. There are so many recipes to enjoy but the peach cobbler is an old classic.
A cobbler is filled with juicy fruit and then a buttery, biscuit batter is poured overtop! And once baked it’s paired perfectly with vanilla ice cream!
This is a simple recipe with simple ingredients. You may just have all the ingredients in your pantry and all you have to do is add some fresh peaches!
- Granulated sugar
- Unsalted butter
- All-purpose flour
- Baking powder
- Full milk
- Ground cinnamon
I’ve adjusted this recipe to cut down on the sugar, but if you find you have super juicy peaches you could cut back the 1/4 cup sugar even more to a few tablespoons. You could also add some fresh raspberries to the peach cobbler or make it a mixed fruit cobbler. This recipe is easily adaptable to your specific tastes, so you can have fun and create your own favourite version.
The Size of Dish Matters
There are only a few steps in creating a cobbler and what I’ve learned is the size of dish matters. I used a smaller dish (because, well it was prettier!) but it’s important to have the batter spread out so it can push through the peaches and bake on top. You’ll also find the step that takes the longest is peeling and slicing the peaches, so rest assured the recipe itself is quick and simple to make. I especially like how you basically just layer all the ingredients into your dish. And then the magic happens in the oven, creating a unique peach cobbler every time, with peaches popping through the batter and cracking lines of cinnamon.
How To Make a Peach Cobbler
Step One: Add the peaches, sugar and salt to the saucepan, cook until juicy and the sugar has dissolved. If the peaches are already soft and juicy then there is no need to heat them up.
Step Two: Pour the batter into a baking dish of melted butter. Then top with the peaches and all the juices. Dust the top generously with ground cinnamon.
Step Three: Bake the peach cobbler until the batter is puffed and browned.

A cobbler is a dessert filled with juicy fruit and then topped with a buttery, biscuit batter! It’s typically made with peaches but can have other fruit as well.
No, you make a cobbler with any fruit you like or with a combination of peaches, blueberries, raspberries, etc.
The main difference between a cobbler and a crisp is the topping. Both are made with fruit and baked in a large dish. A cobbler is made with a biscuit like topping and crisp is made with a streusel like topping. A crisp can consist of oats, nuts, sugar and butter whereas a cobbler will have a type of biscuit baked on top.
