Fresh peaches baked under a lemon scented layer of almond-studded cake, this PEACH COBBLER is ready to be enjoyed in less than an hour. Give it a try and serve up a taste of southern hospitality!

I’m a huge fan of this dessert because of its simplicity and down-to-earth appearance. It’s not meant to look perfect, and it certainly can’t be called a fancy dessert. Instead, expect a flavourful and fresh fruit dish that exudes down-home cooking.

If you’re the type to fear failure about making homemade desserts, end such silliness right here and now. This PEACH COBBLER is foolproof and tastes wonderful to boot.

Here are a few reasons why I love this recipe so much:

1) PEACHES – Is there anything more delicious than fresh, locally grown peaches when they’re in season? This recipe brings out the best flavours from these summertime favourites. The peaches hold their shape when their natural sugars caramelize with the butter. Yum!

2) TOPPING – The cake topper on the cobbler may seem too dense, but don’t worry – it eventually melts and spreads out evenly over the fruit as it bakes, even puffing up in the final minutes. It’s a lovely, sweet cap for this fruity concoction.

3) SUBSTITUTIONS – If peaches aren’t your thing feel free to substitute using the same quantity (about 3 cups) of a fruit more to your liking. I recommend trying blueberries, apricots, blackberries, and even apple.

Don’t forget to serve your warm cobbler with whipped cream or a well-paired ice cream like vanilla. Either will add yet another nuance to this time-honoured and most beloved dessert.

Looking of that magical ending to your next family dinner, friendly get-together or dinner party? Serving a PEACH COBBLER will do the trick!


Ingredients & Amounts

  • 6 peaches, washed and sliced
  • ¼ cup of fresh-squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup of all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 8 tablespoons of butter, plus a bit more to grease casserole dish, softened
  • ½ cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup of blanched, sliced almonds


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly butter an 8x11" glass casserole dish. Set aside.
  2. Mix sliced peaches, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and orange juice in a medium-sized bowl and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another medium-sized bowl, cream the butter and ½ cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract. Gradually add flour mixture in three steps, mixing just until ingredients are combined.
  4. Transfer peach mixture into the buttered casserole dish. Drop batter in rounded tablespoons over peach mixture. Try to cover as much of the fruit as possible. Sprinkle top with the sliced almonds, gently pushing upright almonds down with your finger.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, until topping is golden brown and filling is bubbling.
  6. Allow to rest for 15 minutes before serving with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
Listen on MUSIC

Listening to great music is an essential part of every Weekend at the Cottage. I listened to one of my favourite C&W performers while preparing this southern inspired recipe. Check out Patty Loveless – The Definitive Collection, it’s such a wonderful gathering of her best songs and ballads. Head to iTunes to download this album to your collection.

    This looks incredible. Do you think if I skipped the icecream I could serve this for breakfast?

    Excellent, especially with fresh, Niagara peaches.
