Peach is my favourite fruit and I love summers I enjoy my late mornings having Peach cobbler with some piece of bread. This is such a comfortable food you should try this recipe and I’m sure you’ll make every Peach season. 🙂 And if you like summers then you should also try my recipe of Homemade Mango Ice cream

Peach Cobbler

Fruit cobbler is a traditional American dessert that pushes everyone’s comfort meals-lovin’ buttons. Peach cobbler particularly is a solid favored, especially inside the Deep South.

There’s major types of peach clobbers – those with a batter topping, and those with the american biscuit / Aussie scone type toppings.

I way prefer the latter. It’s form of crumbly at the outside and fluffy on the inner, wafting with the odor of cinnamon. The topping is a great suit for tender, juicy and warm peaches swimming underneath in a peach syrup that’s not too sweet!

What you need for the Peach Cobbler Filling

First up, here’s what you need for the peach filling (hint – it involves big fat juicy ripe PEACHES!

Peaches – As emphasized above, ripe and juicy is the important thing here!

This recipe will work fantastically as written with different stone culmination, which includes white peaches, nectarines and plums.

As for canned peaches (because I do no longer blame you if you could’t wait till summer season to do that!), they’ll work simply high-quality too. simply study the recipes notes for how to modify the recipe to use canned peaches.

Sugar – this is tossed with the peach slices to make them sweat so they drip peach juices. The juices are then used to make the syrup for this Peach Cobbler. because a peach syrup that tastes of peaches trumps simple and bland sugar syrup any day … and twice over in the course of summer season!

Cornflour / cornstarch – that is used to thicken the peach juices to turn it into a syrup that coats the peaches.

Lemon – For a touch of tang that balances the beauty. It doesn’t make the syrup sour, it simply provides freshness.

Salt – As with nearly the whole lot candy only a contact of salt brings out the flavours.

Ingredients for Peach Cobbler Topping

And here’s what you need for the topping for the Peach Cobbler:

  • Flour – The recipe calls for plain flour but you can substitute with self-raising flour if that’s what you’ve got. Just skip the baking powder and baking soda.
  • Baking powder and baking soda (bi-carb) – Yes, this is one of those irritating recipes that calls for both but for good reason. I personally think the combination makes the topping lighter and better than just using one or the other. The baking soda is more powerful than baking powder so it gives a boost to the rise when it first goes in the oven.
  • Butter – OOPS! Missing from the photo!  Cold cubes of unsalted butter are rubbed into the flour to make the topping dough. It’s just as you would do for Southern biscuits / Aussie scones which is essentially what the topping for this peach cobbler is.
  • Yogurt – Adds wetness into the batter without making it thin. We want a really thick batter so it can be “crumbled” across the surface of the cobbler.
  • Sugar – For sweetness. Not too much, just 1/3 cup. We’re mainly relying on the natural sweetness from the peaches!
  • Demerara sugar – This is a larger-grained type of sugar with a light toffee taste, sprinkled across the surface to add a nice textural crunch! If you don’t have it, any sugar you have is fine.
  • Cinnamon – Also for the topping. The hint of cinnamon here is just divine

How to make Peach Cobbler

The first-class thing about this peach cobbler is how the peach juices are used to make the syrup for the dish. There are less difficult and quicker recipes accessible that don’t do that step but consider me when I say it makes it taster!!

Peel and slice peaches – Peel then halve the peaches. remove the stone and cut every half of into four wedges (so each peach gets cut into eight wedges in general);

Macerate – Toss peaches in sugar then leave for forty mins to let them sweat. that is called macerating. If they’re ripe and juicy, they have to drop plenty of juices!

Drain – Drain peaches in a colander set over a bowl.

1/4 cup peach juice – degree out 1/4 cup of the peach juices and pour it returned into the bowl. if you are brief, top it up – ideally with peach juice, otherwise with water. but if you used ripe peaches, you must not have this hassle!

Syrup for cobbler – mix the reserved peach juice with cornflour and lemon juice.

Toss peaches in syrup – Then add the tired peaches and toss to coat.

Baking dish – Pour the peaches and juice into a medium glass or ceramic baking pan – mine is a 28 x 18cm / eleven x 7″ oval. it’s far best no longer to apply a metal pan as it can flip the peaches brown.

Parbake – Bake for 12 minutes, then do away with from the oven. The purpose of this step is to give the peaches a head begin because they take longer to cook than the topping.

whilst the peaches are inside the oven, get began at the topping!

Topping and Assembling

The topping for this Peach Cobbler is made tons within the same way as American biscuits / Aussie scones. due to the fact that’s basically what it is!

  1. Rub in butter: Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to combine. Then rub the cold butter in with your fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs.Alternatively, use a food processor – about 10 x 1 sec pulses.
  2. Mixture after adding butter: This is what it should look like after rubbing the butter in.
  3. Gently fold through yoghurt: Add yoghurt and gently mix through with rubber spatula until dough is formed. Stop mixing when the yoghurt is mostly mixed through with some streaks of flour still visible (they will disappear when topping).Use a light touch. Not overworking the batter is essential here so you don’t end up with a tough, dry topping!
  4. Top peaches: Crumble big lumps of the topping across the surface. Don’t fully cover the surface or else the syrup won’t reduce and thicken.
  5. Sprinkle with demerara sugar and cinnamon.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes, then remove from oven. The cobbler is done when an instant-read thermometer shows the centre of the biscuit topping as 95°C/203°F and the top is a lovely golden colour.The exact cook time depends on how thick the biscuit layer is so it is best to use a thermometer. But if you don’t have one, just check by breaking the topping open in the middle.Rest for 20 minutes to allow syrup to thicken. Don’t worry, it will still be perfectly warm for serving.

As with any heat pudding-like cakes, serving with ice cream is truely no longer non-compulsory! I pretend that cream is an appropriate alternative (I even endorse it inside the recipe to tick that box), but it’s a filthy lie. Cream is a negative alternative.

Because nothing, I repeat not anything, can beat the mixture of creamy, cold ice cream melting throughout a warm dessert. specially while that heat dessert is a Peach Cobbler!

  • Cups

  • Metric

  • 1.5kg / 3lb (8) yellow peaches

  • 1/4 cup caster / superfine sugar

  • 1 tsp cornflour / cornstarch

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (plus more as desired)

  • 1/8 tsp salt


  • 1 1/4 cups flour , plain/all purpose

  • 1/3 cup caster / superfine sugar

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda (bi-carb) (or extra 1 1/2 tsp baking powder)

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 85g / 6 tbsp unsalted butter

  • 1/2 cup plain yoghurt (or sour cream), full fat


  • 1 tsp demerara sugar (Note 3)

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder


  • Ice cream or whipped cream



Macerate peaches

Macerate peaches: Put peaches and sugar in a large bowl and toss together. Leave for 40 minutes to macerate, to let the peaches leach juice and sweat. Preheat oven: Partway through the maceration, preheat oven to 210°C/410°F (200°C fan). Drain peaches: Drain in a colander, saving the juices. Syrup: Measure out 1/4 cup (65ml) juice and put in a large bowl. Add cornflour, salt and 1 tbsp of the lemon juice to the peach juice. Mix well. Mix with peaches: Pour peaches into the syrup, toss to coat. Taste – it should be a bit tart, slightly sweet, but not overly sweet. Add more lemon or sugar to adjust to your taste (fresh peaches always vary in sweetness!). Parbake peaches: Pour the peaches and juice into a medium glass or ceramic baking pan. Mine is a 28 x 18cm / 11 x 7" oval dish (Note 2). Bake 12 minutes, then remove.

Cobbler Topping

COBBLER TOPPING: Rub in butter: Meanwhile, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to combine. Add butter and rub it in with your fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs (Alternatively, food processor via 10 x 1-sec pulses). Gently fold through yogurt: Add yogurt and gently mix through with rubber spatula until a dough is formed. Stop mixing when yogurt is mostly mixed through with some streaks of flour still visible (they will disappear when topping). Top peaches: Crumble lumps of the topping across the surface. Don't fully cover the surface, to let some heat through else the syrup won't reduce and thicken. Sprinkle with demerara sugar and cinnamon. Bake for 20 minutes, then remove from oven. The cobbler is done when an instant read thermometer measures the centre of the biscuit topping as 95°C/203°F and the top is a lovely golden. Rest to thicken sauce: Rest for 20 minutes to allow syrup to thicken – it will still be perfectly warm for serving. Serve with a dollop of ice cream or whipped cream!


Other fruits – white and yellow peaches, nectarines and plums will all work well here. The essential thing is that they be ripe and juicy! For canned peaches, skip the macerating step. Use the can juices for the syrup. Cans will state how much of the content is peach fruit, so based on this calculate how may cans you need, eg. If 60 – 70% peach fruit, then you’d need about four to five 400g cans. 2. Baking pans – mine is a 28 x 18cm / 11 x 7″ oval shape which is a good size for topping coverage and peach depth. You want one that is a little larger than a square 20cm / 8 inch baking pan which is a little too small. Glass is best as metal can react and turn the peaches brown. 3. Demerara sugar is a large grain brown sugar that gives baked goods a nice crunch when sprinkled. Substitute with any sugar you have – even if you not large grains. 4.
