The Best Peach Cobbler Ever

easy homemade peach cobbler

As far as desserts are concerned, there is nothing better than fresh Easy Homemade Peach Cobbler. Top it with some ice cream and you can’t help but moan when you bite into it. This is by far my favorite Homemade Peach Cobbler recipe. It’s been keeping my family happy for years.

With fall on the horizon, fresh peaches and other fruits are making their appearance in our town. Our community did a fundraiser and had a bunch of cases of peaches sent in to sell. When I heard there were going to be fresh peaches, I almost did a back flip! We don’t usually get really good peaches in our grocery store, so when they are brought to town it’s something to get excited about.

This recipe calls for fresh peaches. You could certainly use frozen ones if that is all you have available, but I promise it won’t be as tasty.  Making it with frozen peach is still going to be a lot better than not making it at all! No matter what you use you will love this Easy Homemade Peach Cobbler.

How to Blanch Peaches

In case you have never blanched peaches, I thought I better give you some instructions in case you are just starting out. I used to freak out just hearing the word “blanching.”  I figured it was some long and drawn process, but it is really easy. First get out a big pot and boil some water. I like to cut an “X” on the bottom of the peach, just enough to break the skin. Then put your peaches in the boiling water. Let them boil for 1 – 2 minutes. After you are done boiling, drop the peaches in a large bowl filled with ice water. I let them sit for around 45 seconds to a minute then I start pealing the skins off. You will be surprised by how easy the skin just falls off.  You can also use this method to blanch other fruits and vegetables.

Easy Homemade Peach Cobbler


  • 8 fresh peaches - skin removed and sliced into 1-2 inch pieces depending on your preference
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice (fresh or concentrate)
  • Topping Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup boiling water (I use the water that I blanched the peaches with)


  1. Preheat Oven to 425 degrees
  2. Mix peaches, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon, cornstarch and lemon juice.
  3. Bake peaches for 10 minutes.
  4. Cut up your butter into small chunks.
  5. Mix all topping ingredients. I use my fingers to blend it together and make a crumbly topping.
  6. Remove peaches from oven and sprinkle crumble topping all over peaches. I like to sprinkle a little extra cinnamon on and sugar on the very top.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is golden.
