Cinnamon Peach Cobbler with Fresh Peaches

If you’re looking for a traditional peach cobbler recipe, this isn’t it. You know, the one with blobs of flavorless biscuit dough? I’ll never eat that again when I can have this instead.

The recipe reminds me of both my Slow Cooker Hot Fudge Chocolate Cake and Slow Cooker Banana Bread with Brown Sugar Sauce because in both of those you pour water over dough, and during cooking a self-forming sauce is created. The same thing happens here.

Let me tell you, the cinnamon-sugar sauce is wonderful. It’s got just the right amount of cinnamon to add interest and flavor to the peaches, it’s wonderfully sweet, and reminiscent of caramel sauce. It forms underneath the juicy peaches and you’ll want to drink it.

Cobbler Fan?

What’s in the Fresh Peach Cobbler?

To make this easy peach cobbler with fresh peaches, you’ll need: 

  • All-purpose flour
  • Granulated sugar
  • Baking powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt
  • Fresh peaches
  • Milk
  • Vanilla extract
  • Water
  • Light brown sugar
  • Unsalted butter

How to Make Peach Cobbler with Fresh Peaches 

This recipe has an easy, stir-together dough and there are no eggs, oil, or butter. Just flour, sugar, milk, cinnamon, and peaches.

Super basic, easy, and the perfect way to use summer fresh peaches. 

  1. Turn the dough out into a pan.
  2. Make the cinnamon-sugar syrup.
  3. Then pour a the cinnamon sugar mixture over it. As you’re pouring this watery mixture over the dough, you’ll think to yourself there is no way this will ever work or set up but it does. And it’s so good.
  4. Bake, cool, and serve with ice cream, whipped topping, whipped cream, and a sprig of mint if you’d like.

Peach Dessert Fans

Some of you who just love peaches or may find yourself with extra on hand during peach season need to race over to check over my Mango Oatmeal Crumble Bars recipe.

Just swap in peaches for the mangos and no other changes needed. Many readers have told me they already do this and love it!

Baking Pan Tips

I made the recipe in an 8×8-inch pan and used 4 medium/large peaches, a solid 4 cups. I literally had no space at the top of my pan and an overflow could have easily happened.

So I suggest using a 9×9-inch pan if you’re using 4 full cups of peaches like I did. If you’re using 3-ish cups, you can get away with an 8×8-inch pan.

With a 9-inch pan, you’ll probably be able to decrease baking time by about 5 minutes.

However, baking times are just approximate here since no two peaches are exactly the same size or have the same juiciness level. Bake until the edges are bubbly and the center is set.

Serve with a sprig of mint and a splash of cream, whipped cream, whipped topping, or ice cream for maximum decadence!

Can Frozen Peaches Be Used? 

I recommend using fresh peaches, not frozen. If using frozen, I imagine you’d need to let them thaw completely and then drain any excess liquid. 

Can I Use Canned Peachs?

Yes you can. Obviously the flavor isn’t the same but the recipe will work.

I suggest using a 15-ounce can of peaches, in juice (not syrup), and drained well.

Does Peach Cobbler Need to Be Refrigerated? 

No, since the cinnamon peach cobbler is baked it’s safe to keep at room temperature for up to five days. Store in an airtight container or cover tightly with foil.

Tips for Making Fresh Peach Cobbler 

You could probably mix-and-match the peaches with other stone fruits like nectarines or plums.

You’re likely fine to double this recipe and bake it in a 9×13-inch pan. 

You can easily make this easy peach cobbler with fresh peaches dairy-free by using a non-dairy milk in the dough (I used cashew milk) and a butter alternative in the sauce

Ingredients  

Dough

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 3 ½ to 4 cups fresh ripe peaches, from about 3 to 4 medium/large peaches, sliced into thin wedges (I did not peel)
  • ½ cup milk, I used cashew milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Sauce

  • 1 ½ cups water
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon cinnamon, or to taste
  • fresh mint sprigs for garnishing, optional
  • cream, whipped cream, or ice cream for serving, optional

Instructions 

Dough:

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line either an 8×8 or 9×9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray, and set aside. If you’re using 4 cups peaches, use a 9×9-inch pan. Read blog post for more info.
  • To a large bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and whisk to combine.
  • Add the peaches, milk, vanilla, and stir to combine. Tip – If using canned peaches, I suggest a 15-ounce can sliced peaches in juice (not syrup), and drained very well. Frozen peaches are also acceptable, make sure they are thawed and drain off any liquid before using.
  • Turn dough out into prepared pan smoothly the top lightly with a spatula as necessary; set aside.

Sauce:

  • To a medium saucepan, add the water, sugars, butter, cinnamon (I used 1 teaspoon), and heat over medium-high heat until mixture is boiling and sugars have dissolved. Allow sauce to simmer gently for about 3 minutes, stir frequently.
  • Evenly, slowly, and carefully (it’s hot, use caution) pour sauce over the dough. It looks like a liquidy mess, but it works out.
  • Place pan on a baking sheet as insurance against overflow while baking, and bake for about 45 minutes (if using a 9×9 pan) to 50 minutes (if using an 8×8 pan), or until the edges are bubbling and the center is set. Dessert will set up up more in the center as it cools.
  • Place pan on a wire rack and allow it to cool for about 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Optionally garnish with mint, add the optional creamy topping of your choice, and serve immediately.

Notes

Storage: Dessert is best warm and fresh but will keep airtight at room temp for up to 5 days.

  1. We are peach loving folks. I even make your mango crumb bars with peaches. Great recipe! Everyone that has eaten them loves them.

    1. Thanks for letting me know and I almost linked that mango post in this (going to do it now) because it’s a great one to try with peaches!

    1. Thanks for the 5 star review and glad it was absolutely delicious and you’ll be making it again!

  2. 5 stars
    I come to you when I need a dessert recipe I know will work. I recently had 4 peaches kicking around on the verge of going bad, so I came to see what you had for them. This was perfect, used exactly as many peaches as I had and came out delicious. I did add ginger and allspice to the dough as a matter of preference.

    1. Thanks for the 5 star review and glad this was excellent for you! I forgot about this recipe and so thank you for leaving a comment on it and reminding me :)

  4. I made the recipe last night…oh so good! My whole family loved it with vanilla ice cream. 

    Thanks Averie! Have a fabulous day!

  5. I made this last night and it was amazing! I am more of a chocolate dessert person but this was so good, I will definitely make it again! I made a batch and a half (but didn’t up the sugars) and made it in an 11×9 ish pan – with a mix of peaches and nectarines. Served with vanilla custard it was delicious! I am excited that we have leftovers tonight. Mine was a little more saucy than yours looks but might be that I needed a few more minutes to cook, but mixing the sauce and the melted ice cream was really good at the end, so no one minded! Thanks again for another terrific recipe!

    1. Thanks for trying the recipe and I’m glad it came out great for you! The mix of peaches and nectarines with the custard sounds great – and yes that sauce with the custard, must have tasted heavenly!

  6. WOW! This looks so good. Peaches (and raspberries) are my favorite summer fruit and I love that you’ve added cinnamon flavor to the dough and the sauce!! Perfect recipe!

    1. It was really hard to make this look good, but thank you :) The sauce was SO.GOOD. Wish you lived closer!

  7. This is beautiful! I just picked up a box of peaches at the farmer’s market, too. :). … & Nice to “see” you, Averie! So glad you’re still blogging and doing well. xo

    1. Thanks for saying hi! Wow when I saw your blog URL come up it was a total blast from 2010 or so :) Hope life is treating you right! And this would be perfect for your farmers market peaches!

  8. YUM! This looks very tasty. I have made similar cobblers but never the one with water. We just cane home almost 2 weeks ago with 18 boxes of peaches from SC. We kept 2 for ourselves which was 80 pounds. I froze a few, canned some, made peach preserves, a crisp and a cobbler. We have eaten LOTS. HA! I still have a good many in the fridge. Need to try this now!!

  9. Gorgeous, I just made a peach crumble. Love how cinnamon-y this is. One of my friends at work always steals everyones food but hates cinnamon so this would be safe LOL!

  10. sounds interesting  and will definitely try.  Your ingredients list for dough had 1 c flour listed, but is not mentioned in the directions i don’t think.  I assume it is included at step #2. Thought you’d like to know

    1. This is totally your kind of dessert! Thought about you the whole time I was slurping the sauce :)

  11. I thought I was the only one who didn’t care for blobby biscuit cobbler. This sounds fantastic and way easier than pie. Averie, I am getting a lot of pop-ups on your site–wanted to let you know.

    1. Ok thank you! I will talk to my ad managers.

      And glad you can relate about the biscuit dough :)

  12. I love anything with sauce (and an ice cream garnish) so it’s quite convenient when the dish creates it’s own!! It is amazing to me how that works–both in a slow cooker and the oven but it’s pretty cool. I agree–blobs of biscuit dough couldn’t hold a candle to this!

    1. The self-saucing aspect of this cobbler really amazed me! It’s even more amazing in person when you see what the pan looks like before baking and then taking it out of the oven – so radically different!

  13. I agree with you on the biscuit dough. Does nothing for anyone. A sauce with brown sugary goodness, on the other hand…perfection. This is perfect!

    1. Does nothing for anyone, agreed! I’d rather save my empty calories for something far more tasty :)
