Peach cobbler is a classic recipe that features fresh or canned peaches. Don’t forget to serve with a scoop of ice cream on top!
My pairs partner was kind enough to gift me some fresh peaches recently. His ice dance partner visited a peach orchard not too long ago and gave him a ton of peaches. Because he didn’t think he could consume all the peaches, he offered some to me.
I happily took 8 cups of peaches from him. Luckily for me, my pairs partner already peeled, cored and sliced the peaches for me so I didn’t have to do to much work to prepare them.
When I asked my family what they wanted me to make, my husband told me peach cobbler. He was slightly confused when he saw this come out of the oven because he asked where the streusel topping was. I told him that a peach crisp (or crumble) was the recipe that featured the streusel. Doh!
Even though there was a bit of confusion on the recipe, we all still enjoyed the cobbler. The fresh peaches were very juicy and sweet, and it made a lot to be able to share. I am excited about the remaining 4 cups of peaches that I still have and will likely make a peach crisp with those!

- 5 peaches cored, pulled and sliced (about 4 cups); you may also use canned peaches. If you do, skip the sugar and salt.
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup milk of choice
- cinnamon-sugar mixture for topping; optional
- Preheat your oven to 350°F. Add the 6 Tablespoons of butter to the pan and set it in the oven and allow the butter to melt. Remove pan from the oven and set aside.
- In a medium sized saucepan set over medium heat, mix the peaches, sugar and salt together until the sugar is dissolved and the peaches get juicy. If using canned peaches, skips to the next step.
- Zion a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the milk and mix until just combined. Pour this over the prepared pan with the melted butter and make sure you smooth the top.
- Add the peaches and the juices on top of the batter. If desired, sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top.
- Bake in your preheated oven for 38-40 minutes or until bubbly and the cobbler part is golden.
- Allow the cobbler to cool slightly before serving (preferably with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!).
