If you like a sweet biscuit-like topping for your peach cobbler then this is the one for you! This easy recipe can be made with canned or fresh peaches!
A SIMPLE, DELICIOUS COBBLER RECIPE
It’s a warm summer day and you’re lounging on your front porch with a glass of sweet tea when the sweet scent of peaches and buttery biscuit wafts towards you. Is there anything better? Peach cobbler is one of the ultimate southern summertime desserts. This recipe is so simple to make and can really be tailored to your tastes. So grab a fork and some ice cream and let’s dig in!
CAN I MAKE THIS PEACH COBBLER WITH FRESH PEACHES?
I’m making it with canned peaches but it is simple to make with fresh peaches as well. It just involves a little bit more work. You’ll need about 6 medium peaches, sliced (skin removed). Then continue with the rest of the recipe steps.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)
- canned sliced peaches
- cinnamon sugar
- all-purpose flour
- baking powder
- salted butter
- heavy cream
HOW TO MAKE PEACH COBBLER:
Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Spray an 8×8-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Pour canned peaches into bottom of baking dish (spreading them out evenly). Sprinkle peaches with cinnamon sugar mixture. To make cinnamon sugar, combine 2 tablespoon granulated sugar with 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
For the topping, in a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar and baking powder.
Then add in the cubed butter. And begin to “cut” it into the flour mixture.
You can use a pastry cutter. Or better yet, use your fingers.
Then pour in heavy cream.
Combine until all the flour mixture has become moist. It will be very thick.
Using a spoon, begin plopping the topping all over the peaches. Just put it on in clumps. Doing your best to cover the peaches. Don’t worry about smoothing it out.
Bake for about 40 minutes. Top should be a light golden brown, and you can stick a toothpick in the top to make sure the topping has completely baked through. If you feel like it is getting too brown, just lightly cover it with foil to finish baking.
Then eat it while warm and serve with some vanilla ice cream.

- To make this with fresh peaches, you’ll need about 6 peaches. You’ll need to parboil the peaches to remove the skin. Then slice. Then continue with above steps.
- If you lie a lot of peaches, you can definitely use two cans of peaches here. Also if you like smaller chunks of peaches, just dice them up before adding.
- To make cinnamon sugar, combine 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar with 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
- The cinnamon is not strong and adds wonderful flavor but if you don’t like cinnamon at all, just use regular sugar.

Peaches were on sale last week. Good recipe. I like recipes using and 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 pan. It just my husband and me so we aren’t overwhelmed I will try this in the winter using canned peaches.
Oh, my husband liked the topping because it wasn’t sugary. I liked all of it.
This looked good undone and my house smells unbelievable. Finished product so beautiful thank you
How much sugar in the flour mixture? I
Making it now but how much salt should I put in?
Hi Korkee – no additional salt needed since you’re using salted butter. 🙂
I had the same question. Step 5 in the instructions reads: “For the topping, in a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.” Perhaps that salt included at the end should be edited out, for clarity.
That’s a good point – I will fix 🙂
Gonna make this tonight ????
