Learn how to prepare this old-fashioned peach cobbler with simple ingredients (using fresh, canned, or frozen peaches) and the easiest step-by-step instructions. My grandma’s cobbler recipe with peaches is the best: easy to make, not too many steps, and takes only a few minutes to prepare, while the oven does the rest. It’s the best!

Even though it’s a summer-ish recipe, because of the peaches, the cinnamon flavor makes this peach cobbler a great holiday dessert. The caramelized peaches on the top will impress any guest, while the flavorful smell will lure everyone to the kitchen.

Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe FAQs

Before getting started with the recipe, let’s clarify a little about the so-called “cobbler”. My friends call this type of dessert in three different ways: cobbler, crisp, and crumble, even though the three terms refer to different things. So, I wanted to explain a little about the differences before getting started!

Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe
  • Is cobbler the same as crumble? – No. The cobbler refers to a fruit dessert made with a top crust of pie dough or biscuit dough but no bottom crust, while the crumble is a type of dessert that usually uses a brown sugar streusel topping.
  • What is the difference between a peach cobbler and peach crisp? – A peach crisp and crumble are basically the same thing: both refer to fruit desserts similar to a cobbler but made with a brown sugar streusel topping. The crisp/crumble is then baked until browned and crisp, explaining its name.
  • Is it better to use fresh or canned peaches for cobbler? – You can use fresh, frozen, or canned peaches. However, for the best flavor and consistency, I recommend using delicious, fresh peaches but this recipe also works well with other types of fruits.
  • What is peach cobbler crust made of? – As previously noted, the classic cobbler does not have a specific crust, other than the puffy dough which is poured over peaches. The batter is made by mixing flour, 1 cup of sugar, baking powder, salt, and milk.
  • How to peel peaches? – The best way to peel peaches is to gently lower 2-3 peaches into a pot of boiling water. After leaving them in water for about 30 seconds, remove them to an ice-water bath. Finally, just peel them using your hands.
