Old Oven Peach Cobbler

Old Oven Peach Cobbler is a delightful and classic dessert that’s perfect for showcasing ripe, juicy peaches. Here’s a simple recipe to prepare this delicious treat:


For the Peach Filling:

  • 4 cups peeled, pitted, and sliced fresh peaches (about 5-6 medium-sized peaches)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

For the Cobbler Topping:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup boiling water


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced peaches, 1 cup of granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour. Toss the ingredients together until the peaches are well coated. Set the peach mixture aside while you prepare the cobbler topping.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients for the cobbler topping: 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Add the chilled, cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Using a pastry cutter, fork, or your fingers, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  5. Pour the boiling water over the flour and butter mixture and stir until just combined. The dough will be slightly sticky.
  6. Take a 9×9-inch baking dish or a similar-sized oven-safe dish and lightly grease it with butter or cooking spray.

  1. Spread the prepared peach filling evenly into the greased baking dish.
  2. Using a spoon or your fingers, drop spoonfuls of the cobbler topping over the peach filling, covering it as evenly as possible.
  3. Bake the cobbler in the preheated oven for about 35-40 minutes or until the topping is golden brown, and the peach filling is bubbling.
  4. Once done, remove the cobbler from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving.

Serving suggestions:

  • Serve the Old Oven Peach Cobbler warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra indulgence.
  • You can also sprinkle some cinnamon or powdered sugar over the cobbler for added flavor and presentation.
