Summer dessert recipe

Peaches are such a great summer fruit and are so easy to add flavor and variety to many of your basic recipes! I love to add them to my oatmeal or in a bowl with vanilla yogurt for an easy breakfast or snack.

During summers when I was growing up we always had peaches around! My mom would buy bushels of them and then can them so we could enjoy them for the rest of the winter. (See my How to Can Peaches post for the full breakdown on canning peaches!)

But my favorite way to enjoy peaches has always been in this easy peach cobbler!!!

This peach cobbler from scratch is a standby in my house…perfect for summer nights on the porch topped with a scoop of homemade ice cream, but equally as wonderful served warm in front of a cozy fire with a cup of steaming coffee. Regardless, it is delicious! And crazy easy!

My top recommendation is to make this lazy day peach cobbler with fresh peaches when they are in season! Fresh peaches are a summertime gift!

Can I make this peach cobbler recipe with canned or frozen peaches if I don’t have fresh peaches?

Absolutely! Because peach season is so short, know that canned or frozen peaches are great as well!!! Just make sure if you are using canned peaches that you drain the juice off of them. Similarly for frozen peaches, defrost them thoroughly and drain them, otherwise you’ll end up with a soggy peach cobbler.

This cobbler whips up fast so it’s the perfect last minute dessert!! Like it’s “sister recipe” Easy Blueberry Cobbler, this recipe is delightfully simple with it’s buttery goodness and fresh fruit flavor!

The perfect “company’s coming and I need a quick dessert” dessert. Add a scoop of ice cream on top and you are golden!!

It’s totally okay if the center is a bit gooey, actually that’s the best part!homemade peach cobbler

What if I am feeding a bigger crowd and need more cobbler?

You can easily double this recipe and make it in a 9×13 pan. Add about 10 extra minutes to the cooking time. Just keep an eye on it, till the center is set up and the top is golden brown.

I love to enjoy this easy peach cobbler with a cup of coffee (decaf if after 3pm!) or a glass of cold milk. It’s the perfect sweet way to use summer produce and makes an easy dessert to whip up for your friends and family.

  1. I got this recipe from a very sweet, older lady (Bea Crum) that I worked with at Grace Village. That was almost 33 years ago when I was a young bride of 20. And it is as easy as it is yummy! Dad’s office desk came from her husband, John, who owned an automotive repair shop. It was the desk that John used in his shop office for years. We bought it for $25.00 from them.

    1. I knew there was a story! For some reason I was thinking that it was in Gramma Willsea’s handwriting in your cookbook, but I must be thinking of another recicpe.

  2. Another lovely looking pud. I’ve always made a scone topping for my cobblers, savoury and sweet… this ones a lot less work with, if looks are anything to go by, equally delicious results.
