For those of you who know me well, you know I’d spend hours and hours in the kitchen to create the most intricate and elaborate dessert. However, you also know the intensity of my sweet tooth and know that most days, I don’t have much time (or patience!) to wait hours and hours for something sweet! 

Luckily, I’ve got this little recipe card in my kitchen and it’s one that gets used A LOT. It’s the perfect dessert, especially on these super cold winter days when peach season feels forever away!

Why I Love this Easy Cobbler Recipe

  • As the title suggests, it’s EASY. This was one of the first recipes I learned to bake when I was little and have loved it ever since.
  • The buttery batter and the fruity filling are the perfect contrasting flavors!
  • ​While I love fresh, juicy peaches, it’s so much easier to open a can of peaches rather than removing the peach skin, slicing, etc!
Ingredients for Peach Cobbler

Ingredients Needed

  • Salted Butter – I like the 
  • Flour
  • Sugar
  • Baking Powder
  • Milk
  • Canned Sliced Peaches in Heavy Syrup

How to make Easy Peach Cobbler with Canned Peaches

I love how simple this recipe is and how quickly it comes together.

Melted butter in the bottom of a clear casserole dish.

First, you’ll melt the stick of butter. I always melt the butter right in the bottom of the pan to limit the cleanup I’ve got to do, but you can melt the butter and dump it in the dish if you’d like.

Next, you’ll mix up a really simple batter. The batter is poured right on top of the butter (do NOT mix!).

Lastly, you’ll dump the can of peaches (with the peach juice!) right on top of the batter. Again, do NOT stir!

I like to sprinkle the top with a little cinnamon and sugar.

Bake the cobbler until the batter rises to the top and becomes a golden brown color. The filling should be bubbly.

Can I make this with fresh peaches?

No, I don’t recommend it. This recipe is made to work with canned peaches in heavy syrup and doesn’t work well without that syrup. 

If you’ve got fresh peaches to use, I highly recommend my Peach Muffins, this Peach Dump Cake or my delicious Peach Pie!

How to Serve Peach Cobbler

My preference (with about any dessert, ha!) is serving a bowl of warm peach cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!  However, a dollop of sweetened whipped cream on top is a close second!

How to Store Leftovers

This dessert is truly best right out of the oven. However, if you do have leftovers, let the cobbler come to room temperature, place them in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 5 days. When you’re ready to enjoy, pop it in the microwave to warm it up and top with a scoop of ice cream!

Easy Peach Cobbler is a super simple dessert with sliced peaches on the bottom and a buttery topping. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and you've got a mouth-watering dessert!


  • One 2 quart casserole dish


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • One 29 ounce can sliced peaches in heavy syrup do NOT drain


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Melt butter in a 2 qt casserole dish (I use the microwave).
    1/2 cup butter
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, flour and baking powder.
    1 cup sugar, 1 cup flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Add the milk and stir until combined.
    3/4 cup milk
  • Pour the batter over the melted butter; do not stir.
  • Pour the can of peaches (with the liquid!) over the batter; once again, do not stir.
    One 29 ounce can sliced peaches in heavy syrup
  • Sprinkle the top with cinnamon, if desired.
  • Bake for 1 hour; the batter will rise to the top and the peaches will be on the bottom in a delicious sauce.
  • Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.


This recipe is easy to halve if you want don’t have several people to feed. You’ll want to use a smaller baking dish.  Simply use 1/2 the amount of each ingredient (use a 15 oz can of sliced peaches) and decrease the baking time to 45 minutes.
