EASY PEACH COBBLER RECIPE
Peaches and I have a bad history. I won’t go into too much detail but our relationship has been rocky with a long road of making up to do.
Then there’s my husband who says every time he eats peach cobbler he wishes it was apple cobbler. Another hater.
Needless to say this easy peach cobbler had a whole lot to prove.
But I’m The Girl Who Ate Everything, so no food is off limits…no calories left unexplored.
4-INGREDIENT PEACH COBBLER
The best part is that there are only four ingredients in this cobbler. This is the easiest cobbler you will ever make with simple ingredients.
Here’s what happened: A little bit of the flour mixture is sprinkled on the bottom of the pan and mixes with the peach juices and stick of butter while cooking making it a thick peach filling.
CANNED PEACHES VS FRESH
The great thing about using cans of peaches is that you can make it anytime of year and not just during peach season. Of course you could use fresh fruit.
There’s nothing like juicy peaches in a fresh peach cobbler.
The crust is the perfect combo of light with a slight crispness on top. It’s not a biscuit dough topping that some cobblers have.
You might be worried it’s too wet when you stick it in the oven but after it bakes and has rested for a couple of minutes, it is perfect.
If you like yours on the drier side just don’t add all of the liquid from the peaches.
Some people use a cake mix. I’ve absolutely have done that before but this cobbler topping is so easy and tastes more like a homemade peach cobbler.
SELF-RISING FLOUR SUBSTITUTE
If you don’t keep self-rising flour on hand, make your own.
For every 1 cup self-rising flour needed, mix together: 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda.
WANT TO USE FRESH PEACHES?
When using fresh ripe peaches, peel and slice them, and sprinkle the slices with an additional 1/2 cup sugar. Refrigerate peach slices for 2 to 3 hours before using and they will make their own syrup with their peach juice.
You will need 1 3/4 pounds of peaches which around 5-6 medium peaches sliced.
- You can double this in a 9×13 baking dish.
- This is on the sweet side so you could cut the amount of sugar if you like. You can even use brown sugar for a deeper tone.
- Add a tablespoon of lemon juice to brighten the flavor.
- Use a teaspoon of vanilla extract for some vanilla flavor.

Easy Peach Cobbler
- 1 cup self-rising flour, (see Note for substitution)
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar, (plus 2 additional Tablespoons for topping)
- 1/2 cup butter, divided (and melted separately)
- 1 (29 ounce) can sliced peaches in heavy syrup, undrained
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- In a medium-size mixing bowl coarsely mix the flour, 3/4 cup of the sugar, and 1/4 cup melted butter together. You can add a dash of cinnamon here if you want too.
- Sprinkle about one-third of the flour mixture on the bottom of an 9x9 baking dish. The flour mixture will slightly mix with the syrup of the peaches while baking and thicken it up a bit.
- Add the peaches with their juice to the dish. If you like your cobbler on the dry side don't add all of the liquid.
- Sprinkle the top of the peaches with the remaining sugar/flour mixture. Sprinkle the top with the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar. Drizzle with the remaining 1/4 cup of on melted butter on top of the batter. There will be a lot of liquid and it will look wet. Don't worry, the flour mixture will soak up the liquid.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and bubbly. Let cobbler sit for at least 5 minutes before serving.
- Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
- This can easily be doubled in a 9x13 baking dish.
