You’ll make this simple peach cobbler recipe over and over! Because the combination of luscious peaches, buttery topping, and vanilla ice cream is a marriage made in heaven.
This peach cobbler recipe has been in the works for quite some time. If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you know how much I love peaches throughout the summer.
I put them in salads, dish them with cheese, put them on pizza, and, of course, eat them on their own. Given how many peach recipes I’ve prepared over the years, it’s about time I offered a more traditional, simple peach cobbler recipe.
Peach cobbler can be made in a variety of ways. The fruit is sometimes surrounded by a sweet, cake-like batter, and other times by a biscuit-like topping.
Other times, the peaches are dotted with a delicate, flaky crust. Because I love fruit crisps, I went with the third option, topping my peaches with crumbles of a 7-ingredient cobbler topping.
Because peaches in season are naturally sweet and juicy, it doesn’t take much to turn them into a delectable dessert. There are just ten ingredients in this simple peach cobbler recipe, and peaches are the star of the show.
I don’t sweeten, stew, or peel my peaches because I’m a peach purist, but I do spray them with lemon juice for brightness. I top them with a topping made of flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and coconut oil, and serve it with vanilla ice cream scoops.
This one is a must-have late-summer delight because it’s naturally sweet and bursting with peach flavor.
Peach Cobbler: A Step-by-Step Guide
This cobbler dish, like other fruit crisps and crumbles, comes together quickly. All you have to do is follow these steps:
- Peaches should be sliced into eighths and layered in the bottom of a greased 913 baking dish.
- Lemon juice should be drizzled over them!
- Mix the topping ingredients together until they form a crumbly mixture.
- Sprinkle the dough on top of the peaches and bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees until the topping is softly golden brown and the peaches are juicy.
- Scoop into bowls and top with vanilla ice cream while still warm. Enjoy!
Tips for Making Peach Cobbler
I’ve been cooking peach treats for years as the greatest peach enthusiast. Here are some of my favorite recommendations for making one that is always perfect:
- Prepare your peaches in advance. When I go to the shop in search of the perfect peach, everything I discover is either rock-hard or too mushy. Buy your fruit a few days ahead of time and allow it to ripen on your counter if you want to prepare a superb peach cobbler. You’re ready to bake when the peaches are tender. (You can also keep them in the fridge for a few days once they’ve ripened.)
- Always err on the side of more fruit rather than less. To ensure that the peaches thoroughly cover the bottom of your pan, overlap the slices as needed. I even have a double layer of fruit in some spots, as you can see in the photos above!
- Some clumps should be left. Nothing beats a huge chunk of golden brown, buttery dough in a piece of peach cobbler, so don’t break up the cobbler topping too much as you sprinkle it over the fruit!
- Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. I enjoy all fruit desserts with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but this one is exceptionally good. The ice cream adds a lovely “peaches & cream” finish to this cobbler, which is nevertheless delicious on its own. If you don’t like ice cream, a spoonful of whipped cream or coconut cream would suffice.

This simple peach cobbler is a must-try late-summer treat! Because fresh peaches are naturally sweet, I leave the fruit base unsweetened, allowing the natural peach flavor to come through.

- Combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a medium mixing basin. Combine the coconut oil and vanilla in a mixing bowl until a crumbly dough forms. Sprinkle over the peaches and bake for 30 minutes, or until the peaches are juicy and the mixture is lightly browned on top.
