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!

    This looks delicious! Can I substitute blueberries for the peaches? if so, how many cups do you suggest?

    1. Hey Monica,
      I would do 4-5 cups of blueberries:) I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xx

    You could cut out the baking soda and use self rising flour, fresh peaches are the bomb but when not in season, canned works just as well. If using canned add a little of the syrup out of the can and less milk, makes it super sweet!

    1. Hey there,
      Happy Thursday!! Thanks a lot for trying this recipe out, I am so glad to hear it was a hit! xx

    I’ve never made a cobbler before and this was so easy! We just bought fresh Georgia peaches off the semi! They are unbelievably juicy so I did not pour all juices from peach/br sugar/maple syrup combination. That worked great!
    Will definitely make again ❤ 🍑

    1. Hey Karen,
      Wonderful!! Thanks a bunch for trying this recipe out, I am so glad it was enjoyed! xTieghan

  7. Thinking of making this weekend. We don’t have any good peaches available right now. Would you recommend another fruit? Would blueberries work well with this?

    1. Hey Erica,
      Sure, really any other fruit that you enjoy will work in this recipe! Please let me know if you give it a try, I hope you love it! xx

  8. Incredibly easy to make and absolutely delicious- I’ve been craving peach cobbler for weeks- this recipe showed up in my inbox and it was a no brainer! I highly recommend

    1. Hey Jessica,
      Wonderful!! Thanks a bunch for trying this recipe out, I am so glad it was enjoyed! xTieghan

  9. Hi! This looks so delicious! Do you think I could half this recipe to make it small batch? If so, just wondering how long to bake it in, say, a 9×5 loaf pan? Thanks!!

    1. Hey Robin,
      I would probably bake in an 8 inch cake pan, I don’t think you would have the best results using a loaf pan, just keep an eye on it:) I hope you love the recipe!! xTieghan

      1. Hi there! If I want to make ahead for a group- would I prep peaches with butter and prep the batter and put in fridge and take out and then combine and bake before dinner? Having guests and don’t want to cut peaches etc around dinner? Thanks so much for all your recipes!

        1. Hey Laura,
          You could make the entire recipe ahead of time, it’s great served at room temp:) I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xx
