This easy peach cobbler recipe is made with fresh sweet peaches for a perfect taste of summer! This mouthwatering dessert smells and tastes like fresh peaches, sweet and warm, with delicious baked topping that just melts in your mouth.
Peach cobbler is the ultimate summer dessert – when it’s hot outside, I just crave something light and fruity. Fresh peaches are in season, fruits are abundant, and this fresh peach cobbler is going to be an absolute hit at your next BBQ gathering!
When it comes to fresh peaches versus canned peaches, there is no comparison. It’s hard to believe canned peaches are made of the same fruit :) Do not ever use the canned mush in the peach cobbler. For the peach flavor to shine through, fresh peaches are a must! If you don’t have any fresh peaches on hand, you can substitute them with frozen peaches (just bake them straight from frozen, no defrosting needed).
This amazing peach cobbler is made with simple everyday ingredients – peaches, flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, baking powder, butter and milk. No need to track down any exotic ingredients – these everyday staples produce this very classic American dessert that everybody loves!
Making this fresh peach cobbler is extremely easy and doesn’t require any special equipment – you don’t even need to own a mixer! Pour melted butter in a baking dish, followed by a layer of peaches, then pour the batter over the top and bake. If you never baked anything in your life, this peach cobbler is the perfect first dessert to try baking – it’s truly foolproof!
Another great thing about peach cobbler is that it’s pretty healthy for a dessert, especially when you compare it to the traditional cakes, pies and cookies! If you’d like to cut the calories further, feel free to omit the butter and reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup.
Peach cobbler can be served either warm or cold. Personally, I like it better warm, so if I’m making it ahead, I just reheat it in the microwave. Peach cobbler is amazing on its own or topped with ice cream – delicious!
