What makes cobblers terrific is that they are tasty and easy to make. And, there’s no pressure to have them come out looking all pretty like there is with pie. Here’s instructions on how to make a simple Warm Peach Cobbler.

Warm Peach Cobbler Recipe


Preheat oven to 400 degrees .

Place the peaches, sugar, lemon juice, flour, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla extract in a large glass mixing bowl and combine thoroughly.

Pour the mixture into a greased 8×8” baking pan.

Top the peach mixture with an even layer of brown sugar before placing the pan in the oven.

Bake for 10 minutes on the center rack.

While the peach mixture is baking, add flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder to a mixing bowl and combine thoroughly.

Chop the chilled butter into very small pieces with a sharp knife.

Add butter to the bowl and combine with dry ingredients with your fingers. You should have small pebble-sized pieces of butter when finished.

Add heavy cream and water to the flour mixture and stir with a fork until all the dry ingredients are moist and somewhat sticky. Do not overwork the dough.

Remove the peach mixture from oven and carefully spoon dough over the top. Make sure the dough is the same thickness throughout so it cooks evenly. You can cover the entire surface or leave deliberate spaces in between if you prefer a more artistic look.

Return the pan to the oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until the topping begins to brown.

Remove pan from the oven and brush the top with the egg white wash, then sprinkle remaining sugar on top.

Return the pan to oven to finish baking for another 10-15 minutes.

Remove from oven when the top is evenly browned.

Allow pan to cool slightly.

Serve alone or topped with your favorite ice cream or whipped cream.

  1. Peach is my favorite of all cobblers. Warm with vanilla ice cream is the best way to eat it. I have never made it from home but am looking forward to giving it a go.

  2. This warm peach cobbler looks delicious! I admit, I usually go for apples, but peaches are a family favorite. I will have to try this for a special dessert one evening with the family!

  3. I haven’t had peach cobbler in so long, and this sounds fantastic. This recipe sounds pretty easy, I could manage this one! It would go great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
