What Is A Peach Cobbler?

Peach cobbler is a classic American dessert known for its sweet, juicy peach filling and a biscuit-like topping that is baked until golden brown. The delicious blend of soft sweet peaches with a crispy, crumbly top creates a taste sensation that will keep you coming back for more.

Choosing The Best Peaches For Your Cobbler

Peach season typically runs from June through the end of August, and in cooler climates, you might find quality peaches even into September. Here are some tips to help you pick the perfect peaches for your cobbler:

  1. Check the Color: Look for deep yellow background color in yellow peaches, while white flesh peaches should exhibit a creamy yellow hue.
  2. Test the Firmness: Ideal peaches are not rock-hard or overly soft. Gently press the peach with your palm instead of your fingertips, as peaches can bruise easily.
  3. Give it a Sniff: A good peach will have a sweet, fresh aroma. If it smells good, it’s likely a prime pick for your recipe.

  • Peach: Picking the perfect peaches is the secret to an amazing cobbler! When they’re in season, fresh peaches are the undisputed champion. Canned or frozen work in a pinch (use 1 cup, sliced). Peel or don’t – it’s your call. But remember, ripe peaches are key for the most flavorful cobbler!
  • Sugar: Use granulated sugar
  • Lemon juice: This recipe calls for a touch of lemon juice to balance the sweetness of the peaches and add a layer of brightness to the flavor. You can use either freshly squeezed lemon juice or bottled lemon juice. Both options work well!
  • Flour: Use all purpose flour.
  • Baking powder: Gives the cobbler topping a little rise. Make sure your baking powder is fresh so it works.
  • Vanilla and ground cinnamon: For wonderful flavor.
  • Milk: Use any percentage of cow’s milk, almond or soy milk.

How To Make Peach Cobbler For One

These step-by-step photos and instructions help you visualize how to make a individual peach cobbler. See the recipe box below for ingredient amounts and full recipe instructions.

  1. Heat oven to 375° F (190° C). Place the sliced peaches in a 10-ounce ramekin. Stir in sugar, lemon juice, vanilla, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  2. In a separate small bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, and baking powder. Add the milk and whisk until the batter is smooth.
  3. Place ramekin on a small baking sheet. Pour batter evenly over the peaches.
  4. Bake for 25-28 minutes, until the topping is golden brown.

Serving Suggestions: Serve as is, with whipped cream, with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream, or a dollop of clotted cream.

Expert Tips

  • Uniform Peach Slices: Aim for 1/4-inch thick slices of peach to ensure even cooking. Uniform slices help you avoid a mix of tender and crunchy pieces in your cobbler.
  • Avoid Overmixing the Batter: Stir the topping batter just until combined. Overmixing activates too much gluten, leading to a rubbery texture in the final product.
  • Visual Baking Cues: Bake the cobbler until the topping turns a golden hue and you see syrup bubbling at the edges of the ramekin. This is your sign that it’s done.
  • Serving Temperature: For the most satisfying experience, serve your mini peach cobbler warm.
  • Ramekin Sizing: Use a 10-ounce ramekin with a 4-inch diameter and a height of approximately 1 3/4 inches. If your ramekin doesn’t indicate its size, simply fill it with water and then measure that volume in a measuring cup to confirm its capacity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I double this peach cobbler recipe?

Yes! If you’d like to make another peach cobbler or make one large cobbler, double the ingredient amounts and keep the baking time the same as called for in the recipe. If doubling the recipe to make one large peach cobbler, I recommend using a 5×5-inch baking dish that has a base of 25 square inches.

How do I store and reheat peach cobbler?

Peach cobbler is best enjoyed warm, right after it has baked. Store leftover cobbler covered, in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
To reheat the peach cobbler, use the microwave or oven. To reheat in the oven, remove the cobbler from the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 10 minutes or until warmed through.

Can I use canned peaches or frozen peaches in a peach cobbler recipe?

Yes, just ensure to drain canned peaches thoroughly and defrost frozen ones before use.

  1. Great recipe. Easily doubled! I added cinnamon and cornstarch to my peaches because I like the juice a little thicker.

  2. I had to use canned peaches but it was great. So fast and easy. Of course I had to multiply ×4 lol and I made a little extra “dough”. Can’t wait for the peaches to ripen so I can try fresh!

  3. I made this today using canned peaches and added some pecans. It came out great but I felt that there wasn’t enough of the topping.

  4. I made this for dessert tonight. I decreased the sugar a little and added blueberries to the peach mixture. It came out awesome! I love the versatility with this recipe and will try it with apples, raisins and walnuts next time. Thank you, Joanie!

  5. This recipe came together beautifully, and was so delicious! Not to sweet and perfect level of tartness.

    The tip for thawing frozen peaches is useful and saves time. Thanks so much!

  6. Loved this recipe and so did my kids and grandkids – had to make 4 of them to share – going to try the cherry and blueberry for one next

  7. I made this last night and doubled the recipe for my husband and I. Used 2 fresh peaches, but did not peel them! It was great. Can you substitute sugar in peaches with Equal?

    1. Wonderful! I’m so happy you both enjoyed the cobbler. Yes, you can use Equal instead of sugar.

  8. Joanie,

    Love all of your recipes!! When making this cobbler, using canned or frozen peaches is baking, amount of juice it produces about the same as fresh?
    Thank you for your info! Anxious to make this.
    Sue

  9. OMG! I love peach cobbler and no one else does at home. I have a few peaches and this WILL be made this weekend. I love your site. Family of picky eaters so I love making things just for me.
