22

This frozen peach cobbler is SO tasty, yet simple to make. And best of all, it’s only three ingredients! It’s great for those times when you don’t have a lot of time or ingredients around and need a sweet treat.

I love cobbler. In fact, I love it so much I wrote an entire post about it . What’s even better is frozen peach cobbler. Nothing beats the fresh taste from peaches that are in season, but as soon as those peaches become out of season, you have to start getting creative.  

Easy Peach Cobbler (Using Fresh, Frozen or Canned Peaches)

Easy peach cobbler is the go-to recipe for our North American peach season. This classic dessert is perfect served on its own, or with a scoop of ice cream, whipped cream or even a smooth, and creamy vanilla custard!

Cooking and baking according to the calendar of seasonal produce is one of the joys of homemade creations.

Why Should I Make This Recipe?

You should try this recipe, just once, because I know you’ll be back! Here’s why:

  1. The peaches won’t be runny.
  2. You’ll actually taste PEACHES when you eat this cobbler since there’s no added spices.
  3. The topping is just that: a topping, and it bakes beautifully. Some recipes call for putting the peaches on top of the batter creating soggy or gooey results.
  4. It’s truly homemade, so it tastes better and is better for you! Don’t be fooled by other recipes claiming “only 4 ingredients” when one of them is a chemical-filled cake mix. Last time I checked, there were 23 ingredients in a Betty Crocker boxed mix. My recipe only has 9 ingredients, including the peaches!

How do you Make Easy Peach Cobbler from Scratch?

This is one of the easiest recipes, so if you’re not making it from scratch, you really should be! You can use fresh, frozen or canned peaches. I recommend really good, fresh peaches as the best choice during summer, but this recipe also works with other types of peaches. 

Once you have the fruit in the dish, it’s just a matter of whipping up the super easy topping which you’ll then dollop on top of the peaches, and you’re done! Pop it in the oven and you’ll be enjoying this easy peach cobbler in no time!

Cobblers, Crumbles, Bettys and Buckles…

Yes, there are many versions of this type of dessert. Although I couldn’t find much in the way of history, it’s my theory that these American desserts were born from their British ancestors. Eve’s Pudding, which is a classic British apple dessert could actually be called an apple cobbler. Crumbles have a crumbly topping, just like my recipe for the best fruit crumbles. I won’t get into bettys and buckles, but suffice it to say, they’re all delicious fruit based desserts, so let’s get to this easy peach cobbler recipe.

Peaches are Nutritious!

And if you need any other reason to make this easy peach cobbler, just read all about the nutritional perks that peaches pack, and you’ll not feel one twinge of guilt! Peaches have so many health benefits. Just try to source organic peaches as they will be the best for your health.

Can you make peach cobbler without peeling the peaches?

Yes, absolutely! I would recommend removing the skins if you have purchased your peaches and/or if they are not organic. Peaches with a thin skin, or homegrown are better to leave unpeeled. It’s less work and more roughage for you: win-win!

Should Peach Cobbler be Gooey?

If your peach cobbler is gooey, you aren’t using the right recipe! No, it should not be gooey at all, and one of the causes will be putting the peaches on top of the pastry, instead of the other way around. As you can see from my photos, if you use this recipe, you’ll get non-gooey results!

  • Yield: 9 servings

Ingredients

Deselect All

Butter, for greasing baking dish

Fruit:

3 pounds frozen peaches

2 cups sugar

1/2 cup all-purpose flour (note: we did not do this in the show, but it is necessary)

3 tablespoons lemon juice

Pinch of salt

3 cups all-purpose flour

3 heaping tablespoons sugar, plus extra for sprinkling over the top

1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder

Pinch of salt

3 tablespoons butter

3 tablespoons vegetable shortening or lard

3/4 cup whole milk

2 whole eggs

Vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream, for servingAdd to Shopping List

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Butter a baking dish.
  2. For the fruit: In a bowl, combine the peaches, sugar, flour, lemon juice and salt. Stir and set aside.
  3. For the topping: In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir together. Add the butter and shortening, and then cut together with a pastry cutter. Beat the milk and eggs together. Pour into the flour mixture and stir with a fork until just combined. 
  4. Pour the peaches into the prepared baking dish. Tear off pinches of the dough topping and drop it onto the surface of the fruit, creating a “cobbled” texture. Sprinkle additional sugar over the top.
  5. Bake until golden brown and bubbly, 30 to 35 minutes. Allow to sit for 10 to 15 minutes before serving. If the cobbler is too juicy, use a turkey baster to remove a little of the juice (or spoon the juice over ice cream). Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream.

What is a peach cobbler?

Peach cobbler is a dessert dish that is made with peaches (but can also be made with several other different fruits) and topped with a batter or biscuit-like dough before cooking. 

After it has cooked the topping is soft like a cake or biscuit and pairs perfectly with the warm soft fruit. 

In the south, fruit cobblers are very popular and they are often eaten warm or room temperature with ice cream or whipped cream. 

Do I need to thaw my peaches?

Nope!

This recipe is made to use your peaches fresh from the freezer. 

This is what makes the recipe so easy to make. No need to defrost. 

Or if you’re like me, no need to REMEMBER to defrost.

Can I substitute other frozen fruit?

Yes!

The recipe should remain pretty much the same. 

Anytime you’re changing a tested recipe you’ll want to keep an eye on the cooking time to make sure your fruit won’t need a little extra time to cook. 

Great substitution would be blueberries, strawberries, mango, or even a fun tropical blend. 

Can I use fresh peaches in this recipe?

If you’re using fresh peaches no changes need to be made. 

Simply follow the directions as written except you’ll be using your fresh sliced peaches. 

You can feel free to peel your peaches if desired but I have made many cobblers and crisps by leaving the peach skin on. I happen to like it a lot and it cuts down on prep time. 

How do I store fresh peach cobbler?

You can keep peach cobbler covered, in the refrigerator, for 4-5 days. 

While I personally think peach cobbler tastes great cold you can also opt to warm it up in the microwave oven for about 30 seconds.
