Fresh Peach Cobbler

Fresh Peach Cobbler is a delicious and classic dessert that’s perfect for showcasing the natural sweetness of ripe peaches. Below is a simple recipe to prepare Fresh Peach Cobbler:


For the peach filling:

  • 6 cups fresh peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)

For the cobbler topping:

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


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish or a similar-sized casserole dish.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced peaches, granulated sugar, lemon juice, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg (if using). Toss everything together until the peaches are coated evenly. Let the mixture sit for about 10 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  • Transfer the peach filling into the prepared baking dish, spreading it out evenly.
  • In another mixing bowl, prepare the cobbler topping. Mix the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, baking powder, and salt together.
  • Add the chilled, cut-up butter to the dry mixture and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work the butter into the dry ingredients until you have a crumbly texture.
  • Pour the boiling water over the crumbly mixture and stir it with a fork until the dough comes together.

  • Drop spoonfuls of the cobbler topping dough over the peaches in the baking dish. Don’t worry about making it perfect; the topping will spread as it bakes.
  • Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 35-40 minutes or until the topping turns golden brown, and the peach filling is bubbling.
  • Once done, remove the cobbler from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
  • Serve the Fresh Peach Cobbler warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream, if desired. Enjoy!

Note: You can adjust the sugar quantity in both the peach filling and the cobbler topping according to your preference and the sweetness of the peaches. If you like a sweeter cobbler, you can add more sugar. The nutmeg is optional but adds a warm, aromatic touch to the peach filling.
