Southern Peach Cobbler is a delicious old-fashioned peach dessert that everybody likes. I regularly eat it, but my grandma made it using pie crust. This is a scaled-down version of my favorite pie crust cobbler. If you like pie crust cobbler, you will really like this. This dish is straightforward.

It’s almost frightening how easy and effective it is. It’s so delicious that you’ll want to share this with your family, guests, neighbors, and coworkers! This dish may be made using canned peaches (my preferred method) or fresh, ripe peaches on the recipe card and below.


  • I’ll tell you why it’s the simplest peach cobbler ever.
  • It cuts off the milk step, making it easier to make.
  • It is unnecessary to blanch and remove fresh peaches when using canned peaches. We’ve already released two steps.
  • There is no need to divide the biscuit dough.
  • There is no need to simmer the canned peaches because they will stew in the oven while baking.
  • In contrast to cobbler prepared with milk batter, it bakes up cakey or bready.
  • This recipe yields crisp, buttery, golden results. It tasted just like it was designed using pie crust.
  • If you need to bring something for dessert, this is the recipe.


There are numerous quick versions for peach cobbler,  including milk in the batter, which I dislike. The milk makes this topping cakey or bready. I left off the milk in this recipe, which bakes up golden, crisp, and buttery, with tiny bubbles of peaches and syrup peeping through the topping. It’s very excellent! You’ll get beautiful results if you are using canned or fresh peaches.


We  used canned peaches since it’s my favorite method to prepare this, but you can use fresh if you’re short on time or new beauties aren’t in season yet. Fresh peaches taste precisely as lovely as canned peaches. BONUS: You won’t have to waste time blanching & slicing peaches. Remove the beauties from the first can of syrup. Pour the mixture into the baking dish.

Open the next can but keep it open. Pour the entire can of sugar and juice onto the baking pan. Season the peaches with a pinch of salt and pepper. Following is how to make the cobbler follows.


The first step in creating a southern peach cobbler is to select ripe peaches. Ripe peaches are delicious. If the peaches aren’t sweet enough or are not mature enough, you may have to add more sugar. The skin comes next. Blanching peaches is the most straightforward approach to removing the peel. I discussed how to blanch peaches here. Finally, for this dish, you’ll need roughly 6 cups of freshly sliced peaches.


Blanching peaches is the quickest way to peel them. Blanching peaches helps to release the peel. You’ll then be able to remove the skin effortlessly.In batches, immerse the peaches in scorching hot water for  20-30 seconds. Remove the peaches with a slotted spoon and set them in a dish of ice-cold water to prevent them from cooking. Using a little knife, remove the skin.


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Fill a 9×13 baking pan halfway with blanched sliced peaches. Combine all the peach-filling ingredients in a mixing bowl. You may wish to flavor with sugar to taste if you don’t like your sweet.

Southern peach cobbler is one of those legendary meals made with leftover biscuit dough from breakfast. The dough was laid on top of sliced peaches in the bottom of the iron saucepan and then roasted over hot embers in an open fire for… presto! Cobbler with peaches.


  • flour
  •  sugar
  • baking powder
  • cinnamon
  •  salt
  •  melted butter
  • canned peaches 
  •  lemon juice

I’m sure you have the bulk of these ingredients because they’re everyday basics. If not, make a quick trip to the supermarket since this cobbler will be delicious!

If you have all of the components, prepare them all and carefully follow these steps: To use canned peaches, add one can of rinsed peaches inside a baking dish. Pour the entire contents of the second can (syrup and peaches) onto the baking pan.

  • Add the melted butter, salt, lemon juice, sugar, and vanilla essence to the peaches in the pan. If desired, season with cinnamon or nutmeg.
  •  To mix, integrate everything thoroughly.
  • Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large mixing basin. Mix thoroughly.
  • Sprinkle the flour on top of the cobbler. Make sure that you cover the majority of the top. It’s okay if you miss a few edges.
  • Smooth the flour mixture with your clean hand or the back of a big spoon, covering the sides but leaving some exposed. See post for further information.
  • Steps and images related to this step There should be no large lumps in the flour mixture. 
  • It should be relatively smooth all around.
  • Drizzle the butter over the top of the flour.
  • Bake. Then take it out of the oven. Place it to the side to cool.
  • Serve hot with a dollop or two of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!

Isn’t it simple? If you want it hot, you may have it warm or cold. There is no incorrect way to eat cobbler. I like to eat my cobbler warm, which allows the flavors to mingle. Then add a scoop two of vanilla Haagan Daz on top. Yum!


Using your hand, spread the flour evenly over the top of the peaches after pouring the flour mixture over them. Pat the flour down softly, but do not force it into the peaches or syrup. When finished, the flour mixture top should be smooth and lump-free.

Cooking time: Cook this dish until the top is golden brown. This not only crisps up the top but also cooks the peaches down, allowing them to absorb all the flavors of the caramel peach syrup.

Peaches: To save time, use canned peaches instead. They taste just like the fresh type.

Store the pan securely wrapped in plastic or aluminum foil on the counter for up to 2 days. Alternatively, you may securely wrap it in saran wrap or foil and store it in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. But I’m confident you won’t need storage instructions because this peach cobbler will be devoured in no time.

Final Verdict

A liquid cobbler typically signifies the fruit was exceptionally juicy, so let the cobbler cool thoroughly before serving. This allows the cobbler to thicken fully. Southern peach cobbler is ideal for family gatherings, potluck dinners, and late-night sweet tooth demands.

This cobbler is loaded with fresh, juicy peaches & topped with a light and fluffy cinnamon sugar crust, making it ideal for dessert or a special snack. It’s so good that you’d like to eat it all. You’re on your own!
