Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler (Made with Canned Peaches)

This is the best and easiest peach cobbler you'll ever make. A slightly crisp cobbler atop juicy peaches in a thick sauce. It's absolutely heavenly! 

The recipe has only 6 ingredients! It's so simple you won't believe you can mix it all up right in the pan that it bakes in!

Get ready for some homemade goodness with this old-fashioned treat.

   peach cobbler recipe made with canned peaches Let me start by telling you that I've never been a fan of cobblers. At least not until I tried this recipe from my mother-in-law.

I generally don't like all the biscuity crust. But this recipe is mostly the pudding part with just a bit of sweet crust. 

Believe me, you want to try this easy homemade peach cobbler!


Peaches have got to be my all time favorite fall fruit. I don't think there's much better than a fresh juicy peach right off the tree. 

 Of course, I've got to make all the yummy peach treats this time of year too.

Some of my favorite peach recipes include my neighbors no-bake peach dessert, peach pie, peach tart and of course good old fashioned peaches and cream.

I like to add peaches to breakfast too -  in a bowl of oatmeal or in this delicious peach stuffed french toast.

These tasty recipes are the reasons I love peach season.

 But you don't have to wait for fresh peaches to be in season to make this old fashioned peach cobbler recipe because it's made with canned peaches.

That's right, make it any old time you want. It's sooo good.

Keep reading for this favorite dessert recipe.

This easy recipe is made with simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand. 
  • butter (I use salted butter)
  • all purpose flour
  • baking powder
  • sugar 
  • milk
  • peaches with juice
(Full recipe with quantities at the end of the post)


Let's get started with this easy cobbler recipe.

Begin by taking a cube of butter and cut it into smaller chunks in a 9x13 baking dish.

Place it in the oven while it is preheating to 400.

Once your butter is melted, add flour, baking powder, sugar and milk right into the pan and stir together with a whisk.

 Now it's time for the peaches. I like to use my home canned peaches, but a 29 oz store bought can is a good substitute. 

If the peaches are not already sliced, be sure to slice them before adding. 

 Add the sliced peaches on top of the batter.

Then pour the peach juice over the whole thing. 

DO NOT STIR!! It will look a little bit weird, but that's what it's supposed to look like. 

Add sliced peaches and peach juice on top of cobbler batter. Do NOT stir.
Now pop it in the oven to bake at 400 for 35 minutes, or until it begins to turn golden brown.

While it bakes the magic happens. 

The peaches and juice fall to the bottom creating a scrumptious puddingy sauce and the batter rises to the top creating the cobbler.

  Let cool just long enough so it won't burn your tongue and dig in! This really is the best peach cobbler!

See how it's mostly pudding with just a little crust on top. It is absolutely divine!

I think it is best warm from the oven, because the crust is a little crispy.

But that doesn't stop me from eating leftover peach cobbler for breakfast the next day.

I prefer it plain, but it is also yummy with whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

  15. Thank you for this! This is just like my grandmother's recipe, except she used self-rising flour in hers. We lost her on Christmas Eve this past year and I wanted to fix this for my family, but I only keep all-purpose flour. I also would love to know your canned peaches recipe.

  16. I just made this! It’s AMAZING! I’ve made a lot of cobbler in my days but this will be my only cobbler recipe going forward. It’s buttery rich, silky smooth. And it’s ridiculously easy. I used a jar of Costco peaches (24 oz) and held back a bit of juice because it was excessive. I’m glad I did because it’s just perfection! Thank you for this great recipe.
