This old school Easy Brown Sugar Peach Cobbler is the sweetest use for mid/to late summer peaches. Every spoonful is layered with juicy, sweet summer peaches, rich butter, vanilla, warming cinnamon, and plenty of brown sugar to sweeten the deal. The peaches are juicy, while the topping is crisp on the edges, soft in the center, and extra buttery. Top with vanilla ice cream and salted maple butter for the best peach treat of the summer.

It’s finally here! Friday, the weekend, and time for me to share my favorite peach recipe yet, the simplest old-fashioned peach cobbler. Oh, how I LOVE this cobbler. I spent days perfecting the recipe and have been dying to share the final version.

With today being the last Friday of July, I knew it was the perfect time for a peach recipe. The juiciest, sweetest summer peaches are all filling up the grocery stores, farmer’s markets, and roadside farm stands. And I know just what to do with them.

It’s prime-time peach picking season!

Before summer began, I knew I really wanted to share a peach cobbler recipe. It’s a recipe I haven’t played around with much because I just love the idea of an old-fashioned-style peach cobbler.

One with the sweetest peaches, a “self-made” caramel-like sauce, and vanilla cake-like biscuits on top. Oh, plus ice cream, of course.

This took me time to get just right, but the simpler I made the recipe, the better it became. This is the best peach cobbler.

The details

Start by melting the butter. I like to throw a baking dish with butter into the oven to melt and get a little browned.

While the butter is melting, mix up the batter. It’s simply, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and a sprinkling of cinnamon. Then add in the milk and vanilla to create a pancake-like batter.

The rest is just assembly. You need to toss the peaches with some brown sugar, then layer half of them over the melted butter. Next, pour over the batter and then layer the remaining peaches over the batter.

No stirring is allowed, this is the secret, and what makes this cobbler extra special.

As the cobbler bakes, the butter bubbles up over the topping. This helps to create delicious, golden, crisp edges all while forming a caramel sauce underneath.

The peaches on top caramelize as they sink into the cobbler. Between the rich buttery caramel sauce, crisp edges, and sweet peaches, it’s truly magic.

While the cobbler bakes, I make the maple butter. Just butter, maple, and sea salt. This is not a must but it is really delicious when spooned over the warm cobbler with vanilla ice cream.

The one thing you must do is serve this warm, while the juices are bubbling up, and everything is smelling incredible.

This is a classic summertime dessert that really should be happening on a weekly basis throughout August. It’s dangerously delicious, dangerously addicting, and all-around perfection!

    Seriously the BEST peach cobbler I’ve ever had. The brown sugar and slightly browned butter give it such a deep, caramel-y flavor.
    So so good!
    We also made your maple bourbon butter to drizzle on top. Wow.

    1. Hi Kay,
      Thanks for giving the recipe a try, sorry you needed to bake it longer. Was there anything you may have adjusted in the recipe? Did you by chance bake this in a glass dish? It typically takes longer for things to bake in glass. I hope this helps! xx

    Made this tonight…threw in 2 apples I had to fill out my pan since my peaches were smaller. Perfection! I forgot the maple syrup by accident and it was plenty sweet for us with the ice cream on top. Seriously going to enjoy the leftovers with coffee tomorrow. I’m obsessed with your recipes Teighan!!! Husband forced him self to not eat thirds. Lol

    1. Hey Miranda,
      Happy Saturday!! Thanks so much for making this recipe, such a great idea to add the apples! Thanks for sharing:) xTieghan

  6. Wow Tieghan!! This recipe is SOOOO good! I just was able to eat a cooled down (still warm) bowlful with vanilla ice cream and I love it so much! I used coconut sugar instead of brown sugar since that’s what I had and it still turned out great! Thanks for the great recipe!!

    I made this last week and it was SO GOOD. Personally, I thought it tasted even better the next day, cold. I couldn’t stop snacking on it directly out of the fridge 😆 Would it turn out well with apples instead of peaches? Or any other fruits you’d recommend?

    1. Hey Alyse,
      Happy Friday! Thanks a ton for giving this recipe a try, I am so glad it was a hit! Yes, apples would be great!! 🌻Tieghan

      1. Can this be made ahead of time before baking then thrown in the oven to bake when needed later in the day?

  8. I love so many of your recipes and make them frequently. Unfortunately this is not one of them. The texture of the batter was spongy and gelatinous, and I ended up throwing the whole dessert out. I am not sure what happened as others had success with it.

    1. Oh no! I must say that mine was quite similar at 55 min, but I baked it another 20 minutes – and it was absolutely delightful.

    2. Hi Gayle,
      Thanks for giving the recipe a try, so sorry to hear it was not enjoyed. Was there anything you may have adjusted? Please let me know how I can help! xTieghan

  9. SWEET NIBLETS this is outstannnnnnnnnnnnding! Just made it this morning and already 1/2 is gone!!! Unfortunately it bubbled over and I didn’t think to put a cookie sheet down; however, it was probably time to clean the oven anyway (giggle). THANKS!!!

    1. Hey Lana,
      Wonderful!! I love to hear that this recipe was a winner and really appreciate you making it:) xTieghan

    1. Hey Heidi,
