Peach Cobbler Recipe

Peach cobbler is a summer favorite. It’s super easy to make with just fresh peaches and a simple cobbler topping. Use ripe, sweet and flavorful yellow peaches. The peach cobbler will only be as good as the peaches you use. You’ll want to serve this with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the final touch.

Prep time: 40 mins
Cook time: 50 mins
Total time: 90 mins
Servings: 8 servings


Peach filling:
  • 4 pounds ripe yellow peaches (about 12 medium-sized peaches), peeled, pitted, and sliced into 1/2 inch thick wedges
  • 1 cup sugar, divided 2/3 cup and 1/3 cup
  • 1/2 cup instant tapioca (grind in a food processor for better texture)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Cobbler topping:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup (6-ounces) butter, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream


  1. Make the filling: Place the peaches, 2/3 cup of the sugar, instant tapioca, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla in a large bowl and stir to evenly coat the peach slice with everything.
    Let sit for 30 minutes for the peaches to macerate and the tapioca to soften, stirring occasionally.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F
  3. Make cobbler topping: In a separate bowl, vigorously whisk together the flour, 1/3 cup of sugar, baking powder, and nutmeg.
    Cut the butter into the flour with your fingers or a fork until the mixture has the texture of a coarse meal. Add the cream and stir with a fork until the dough mixture just comes together.
  4. Assemble the cobbler: Butter a 2 1/2 to 3 quart casserole baking dish. Spread the sliced peaches out in an even layer. Crumble the dough mixture over the peaches.
  5. Bake: Bake at 350°F until the peaches are bubbly and the topping is well browned, about 50-60 minutes.
  6. Cool and serve: Let cool 10 minutes before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
