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.

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.

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.

Notes

  • 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.

  1. Can I use frozen peaches? If so, how many bags of peaches?
    I love sooo many of your recipes, and this cobbler looks amazing

    1. Hey Deanne! That’s a good question. I’ve never actually made this with frozen. You’d probably need about 3-4 cups (enough to cover the bottom) and you’d need to thaw them out first. I’d probably also toss them in the cinnamon sugar mixture along with about 1/2 Tbsp of cornstarch because they produce more juice (the canned peaches don’t). I’m just guessing here but please let me know if you try it. Canned peaches are usually sweeter too so you may want a bit of extra sugar (1/4 cup or so) when using frozen.

    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.

      1. 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.
