This summer peach cobbler is one of the easiest and tastiest desserts you can make. Sweet and juicy peaches covered in buttery, crunchy and crumbly topping. Serve with some vanilla ice cream for the utterly delicious experience!
Hello friends! Welcome to the new week and fresh, tasty and super-easy recipe!
How was your week? Mine was super busy and rather productive, mainly because we are heading off to Scotland later this week, so I have been trying to get everything done and ready before we hit the road.
With that in mind, I've not really had that much time for baking or cooking in general. Luckily, today's recipe for summer peach cobbler is just ideal for these days when you are short of time but still fancy a tasty pud.
What is a cobbler?
Cobbler is a type of a bake with sweet or savoury filling, poured into a baking dish and covered with batter, biscuit or dumpling topping before being baked. Cobblers are very popular in American cuisine, but they have originated in the UK.
They are called 'cobbler' because when you drop the biscuit/ dumpling topping over the fruit, it bakes up to have a cobbled appearance, like a cobblestone street. In appearance, they are very similar to the crumble, but technically are not the same. These are very simple bakes, with only a handful of basic ingredients required to make one.
Summer peach cobbler- the ingredients
Only 10 basic ingredients are required to make this tasty bake. Fresh peaches are the star of the show here. I have not tried this recipe using frozen peaches, but you can find some tips and instructions for using frozen peaches on the Pinch Of Yum page here
Other than fresh peaches, you will need some caster sugar, butter, vanilla, flour, baking powder, salt and a bit of light soft brown sugar. Ice cream or whipped cream are totally optional but VERY HIGHLY recommended with this recipe!
How to make peach cobbler?
Start with pre- heating the oven to 170 C (fan) and lightly grease your baking dish with some butter. Slice the peaches into wedges and transfer them into the baking dish. Sprinkle them with caster sugar and add the vanilla paste. Mix all of the ingredients gently together and set aside while you prepare the cobbler topping.
To make the topping, simply mix the melted butter, caster sugar, flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. It should have the appearance of the cookie dough- like batter, or look like large breadcrumbs. When the topping is ready, spread it all across and over the peaches. Place the cobbler in the hot oven and bake for about 25 minutes until it starts to be bubbly around the edges. After that time, take it out and sprinkle some brown sugar on top. Bake for another 5-10 minutes and finish off under the grill for 5 more minutes.
Ideally, you want your bake to cool down a bit before tucking into it. However, this step is easier said than done! Serve it while still warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a generous dollop of whipped cream on top.
Thanks for tuning in and for reading today's post. I will be taking a short break from the blog over the next couple of weeks, but will be back before you know it!

This is the most beautiful peach cobbler I’ve ever seen! I absolutely love your ingredients, and love your presentation, as well. We are currently in the “South”, so peaches are a big thing. I’ve been dying to find recipes like this so I can take full advantage!
Ahhh thanks so much Sara, I'm so happy to hear that! Hope you will try it, it's a perfect way to use the juicy peaches!

I made a strawberry cobbler today, and now I want to go out and stock up on peaches to make this cobbler! Beautiful photos Anna and love the simplicity yet elegance of this dessert! Happy travels in Scotland!
Hey Leanne! Now you've said that, I want to make strawberry cobbler 😀 Thanks so much, we've had an incredible time over there and it was a very relaxing holiday! Hugs!
I love any kind of cobbler, but am now totally convinced that peaches are the BEST fruit for desserts like this! With a generous scoop of ice cream, this is a truly epic summer dessert.
Hey Monica, thank so much! I think that peaches and nectarines make the best cobblers, although berries are always good too! Any fruit that can create that lovely, jammy layer under the crumble/ biscuits is good! And yes, ice cream on top is a must! 🙂
Such a wonderful peach cobbler recipe! Easy to follow instructions and the end result is the most refreshing dessert! Perfect with some vanilla ice cream.
Thank you so much Eileen! I wouldn't have it any other way, ice cream on top of a warm cobbler is a must! 😉
Looks delicious! Peach cobbler is one of my favorite desserts. Never made it with leaving the skins on. Can't wait to try it.
Hey Liz, thanks so much for stopping by! I often leave the skins on, but it really depends on the peaches, if it looks and feels a bit rough, I would peel it off. This batch was so lovely, I felt it didn't need any peeling! 😉 Glad you like the recipe! x
I am loving all of the fresh peaches this year! This cobbler looks like a perfect way to enjoy them.
Thank you Anne, glad to hear that you like it!
