This Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler is a nostalgic dessert filled with homespun comfort. In it, fresh sliced peaches are tossed with cinnamon and sugar then arranged over a simple homemade buttery batter and baked until puffed and golden. While delicious on its own, it must be served with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream for the full experience. It’s the dessert equivalent of homemade Southern comfort food.

How to Make the Best Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler Recipe
What’s the Difference Between a Cobbler and a Crisp? Cobblers are generally more cake-like in nature with a batter that encapsulate the fruit. Crisps, on the other hand also have a fruit component that’s typically topped with a streusel topping that can be comprised of buttered flour, oats or nuts or all of these mixed together. As with any dessert, variations depend on the baker and you may see the terms used interchangeably. Regardless, they’re both delicious served warm with ice cream.
- Ingredients you’ll need to make homemade Peach Cobbler: Fresh peaches, cornstarch, granulated sugar, self rising flour, butter, large egg, vanilla extract, lemon juice, ground cinnamon, milk, vanilla and almond extracts.
- Kitchen tools you’ll need: A peach pitter, sharp knife and cutting board, two medium mixing bowls, whisk, measuring cups and spoons, whisk and large spoon.
- You can use salted or unsalted butter for this recipe.
- Lemon juice will add a bright flavor to the cobbler and allow the peaches to keep their vibrant color after baking.
- Cobbler is a dessert that’s best made, baked and served. I don’t recommend assembling it in advance to bake at a later time.
- Store baked Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler chilled in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave in single serving portions and enjoy with a big scoop of ice cream.
